Members can then have an opportunity to invite guests and learn more about the mission and goals of YPF.

Theatrics in the Workplace @ FDL Community Theater
Jun 4 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

When on the stage, communication is critical for performers to continue through with the show and make an impact on their audience. The same is true in the office. That’s why YPF is partnering with Fond du Lac Community Theatre for Theatrics in the Workplace! A 90-minute workshop lead by professionals from The Milwaukee Rep in which communication will take the spotlight. We’ll also have some snacks and appetizers to help tie everyone over before dinner, since it’s about that time.

The first half of the workshop will focus on group work to help everyone listen, respond, and engage with one another. No looking at screens or phones, this is time to interact with each other. A great focus for a group of four from your office, you’ll learn to listen with intent and communicate effectively to help prevent miscommunication when you get back to work. Don’t have a foursome? No problem! We’ll make sure everyone has a group to learn with.

The second half of the workshop will center around the unique communication necessary from a business standpoint with The Milwaukee Rep. Staff members including someone in the performance realm and someone from the administration realm will share insight and answer questions surrounding their uncanny ability to entertain audiences night after night.
