Presented by Nice N’ Spiky Comedy
6.30pm: Arrivals & Welcome Drink

Did you know that most people’s biggest fear isn’t spiders… it’s speaking in public!?
Miss Jones Group partners Nice N’ Spiky Comedy are the experts in providing live comedy for businesses, award ceremonies and team building days. Tonight they’re launching a new, fun and interactive workshop, where participants can learn some of the skills and tricks of performance and how to overcome barriers to confidence from a professional stand up comedian.
Across this evening we’ll lead you through games and practical exercises, to give you an introduction to quashing those fears and really getting confident in your communication. Whether you’re about to lead a pitch at work, give a big presentation or make a speech at your best friend’s wedding, this is the workshop for you.
There are only 12 spaces, so be quick!
This is a shortened taster version of the full workshop and some elements of this evening will be filmed and photographed for use by Miss Jones Group, Nice N’ Spiky Comedy and Spaces & Stories. No audio will be included, and by attending you are giving permission to be included.
