Sophie deLightful has been performing as an MC for almost a decade, specialising in cabaret, circus and festival shows.
In the past three years, she has dedicated countless hours to researching, writing & procuring grants for her community circus projects.
She now offers consultation on both skills, via group workshops, 1-on-1 sessions & mentorship programs. Although skewed towards the performing arts industry, this consultation has proven valuable for people of all ages & experience levels, covering a multitude of needs.
From group workshops to customised mentorships, every level of experience can be catered for. Using techniques developed through years of performance and consultation, students will learn confidence, how to face their fears and the art of character creation. Thought-provoking discussions break down the role of an MC and interactive activities generate new ideas and fresh perspectives.
Helping to break down the anxieties many face in writing grants, turning that mountain into a mere speed bump. A comprehensive investigation into what makes a grant, including interpreting guidelines, liaising with grant teams and deciphering application questions. Tips and tricks helpful for smaller grants – particularly arts, community, reactivation and Covid response – catering to those with little to no grant experience. Packages from basic guidance to grant writing assistance and mentorship. Catering to all experience levels.
