About this event

Join us for an evening of performance insights and business strategy with Dominic Colenso, a speaker whose early career adventures are as captivating as his presentations.

Now a revered former Hollywood actor, theatre director, and teacher at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Dominic will share how his dramatic experiences can help empower you to elevate your communication and perform optimally under pressure.

During this event, he will be sharing his secret tools and techniques from his own speaking and business arsenal, helping you unlock your star performance and build a successful speaking career.
