Introducing the 2 day groundbreaking workshop, working with renowned trial lawyer Mel Orchard and communications specialist and jury trial consultant Jesse Wilson, you will apply the most effective fundamental directing and storytelling techniques from the stage to help you discover and deliver the winning story to judges, mediators and jurors.
When we see that our compass as a storyteller for the courtroom stage has more to do with our greater ability to direct the movement of story, instead of just telling a story, we expand the potential to move people.
Working in an actual blackbox theater in beautiful Colorado Springs, youâ€™ll be provided with simple, powerful, easily accessible, and real directing methods from the stage and screen to command the stage and inspire your jurors to action.
Attendees should come fully prepared with a Real Life Client/Witness in a current or upcoming case you are working on.
