Executives of the modern time require more than technical skills to be effective and successful. While educational programmes offered by traditional universities and colleges covers many of functional/technical knowledge (hard skills), the development of soft skills has been long neglected. Traditional programmes also suffer the weakness of lacking of integration into practical domain. Theories, skills and even mentalities are all delivered through classroom trainings. From pedagogical perspective, it is least preferred and far from effective.

This programme is part of the Executive Soft Skills (Theatre-based Training) Series. It aims to develop students' professional skills in communication and speech on stage through the theatre-based activities and spiritual practices with meditation and yoga. It is an innovative course for the holistic learning experience of physical body movement, language usage and spirit control for conducting the public speaking.

In the learning process, students are able to enhance self-confidence and creativity, improve interaction and speech skills, and manage the stage fright for public speaking with the continuous guidance and feedback from the tutors during the practice.
