Acting Skills and Business Communications are the Perfect Combination

On July 18 at the VII RANEPA Summer Campus  a workshop from the actor of theater and cinema Alexander Kuznetsov was held, who talked about acting techniques in business communications.

Alexander Kuznetsov has worked for many years as an actor, screenwriter, producer in the USSR, the USA and now continues his career in Russia. He talked about "what you can learn from movie stars to become a star in your business.”

The workshop became a theatrical performance with the participation of all those present. An unusual greeting and a small warm-up immediately cheered the participants and set up a positive working mood.

The expert claims that communication is the most important thing in any business: “It is necessary to be able to thank, be sincere, it is important that people trust you." These tips were immediately put into practice – the speaker instructed participants to thank their neighbors that has caused a lot of emotions and smiles.

The workshop by Alexander Kuznetsov helped students to get out of the so-called comfort zone. There was an active discussion throughout the session between the speaker and the participants of the RANEPA Summer Campus. To speak in the hall, everyone needed to stand up, introduce themselves and communicate their thoughts, addressing all those gathered. From time to time the host was giving small tasks for these impromptu performances: for example, the participants had to sell something or to ask for help from the audience.

The greatest activity was shown by Mong Chijioke from Nigeria – the student showed amazing artistry and declamatory skills. He shared his thoughts at the end of an unusual workshop: "That was one of the most unusual experience in my life. It inspired me to be sure that humanity doesn’t need to have a superhero it just needs people who are humans enough. That is what I will pick from this place and it's really amazing.”
