Debrett's visit in the Sunday Times

Year 12 enjoyed a wonderful evening with specialist in cross cultural communications, Victoria Ball, from Debrett's.

The girls in Year 12 enjoyed an enlightening dinner at School before half term, led by Victoria Ball from Debrett’s, which was covered on page 6 of the Sunday Times.

An expert in interpersonal communication, Victoria was incredibly engaging, and she taught the girls not only how to negotiate the cutlery and glassware at a formal dinner, but, more importantly, how to converse over a meal and how you can extricate yourself from an uncomfortable situation. Formal situations can sometimes be daunting, but the girls’ newly-acquired skills might help them to approach them with confidence.

The girls have recently also been attending workshops with RADA Business, in which they explored how to develop their communication skills, have a commanding presence, and the confidence to present themselves with credibility in front of different audiences and in different environments.

We hope that Victoria can return to Roedean to work with the girls again in the near future, and what they learn with her will complement the RADA techniques perfectly. The Year 12 will be able to put these ideas into practice later this term, when they will start the process of Prefect selection and move into those leadership roles in school, as well as tips that they can bring to university and job interviews in the future.
