Voltage Revolution is a programme designed to provide community, training, and paid opportunities to support young, Black creative talent in the UK.
Over the past three weeks, we had the pleasure of delivering the Core Skill workshop sessions for Voltage Revolution. These sessions were aimed at teaching individuals key skills that will help them to become more effective communicators and how these skills can be applied creatively and digitally broadly across a range of platforms. The first session focused on public speaking and the importance of structuring your talks by using Nancy Duarte's principle of the Hero's Journey—focusing on how things are right now and what they could be.
The second session focused on visual communication, and we looked at how to create more powerful visuals using the design principles, which helps with alignment, balance, contrast, hierarchy, proximity and space.
The final session was on creative writing, and we looked at how to use the principles of business writing to bring clarity, simplicity and conciseness to whatever we write, whether it be for work or for pleasure.
Each session was packed with useful tips and tricks that attendees could take away and apply. The key takeaways from these workshops have been the importance of teaching principles as they can be applied to a variety of different scenarios, and the importance of collaboration and community in order to achieve success
The programme has taught us what works and what can be improved, but here are some key takeaways:
