A message from ABBA Mania's Agnetha and Anni-Frid

Hello Leicester! Sweden calling...

We can't wait to welcome ABBA Mania back to Curve later this month. Accepted as the world’s number one touring ABBA tribute production, it celebrates the band's music and revives those special memories of when the group ruled the airwaves.

Ahead of their visit, Agnetha (Tamsin Stewart) and Anni-Frid (Cleo Caetano de Souza) sent us this message.

GROW YOUR CORPORATE VOICE AND PERFORMANCE

Curve and the University of Leicester School of Business have developed a brand new, experiential training product entitled enACT, which builds resilience, grows confidence and improves communication and interpersonal skills.

Research has shown that even the most established employees can find it difficult to articulate a clear corporate message in person, whether talking to colleagues, clients or customers. In a four hour enACT training session, participants will learn a number of techniques using voice, gesture and performance to help overcome this.
