National Convention of Youth Drama 2020 – Andonella Thomson

Andonella ThomsonIn the run-up to the 2020 National Convention of Youth Drama, we’ve asked some of the speakers to tell us a little more about their sessions and why they would recommend them to attendees.

Andonella Thomson, Director at Kingscavil Consulting Ltd, will present a session called Where Do You See Yourself In Ten Years? Setting Career Goals. Are you itching for change or a new challenge? Do you feel a little stuck in your career? Do you need a push to think further ahead? In this practical and engaging workshop, trained coach and mentor Andonella Thomson will help you set yourself goals for the future and ensure you have the tools to achieve them.

What will you be covering in your session at DramaCon?
It’s a first coaching session. All good leaders ought to know the principles of asking good powerful questions and using a coaching style approach to encourage learning.

Why you’re looking forward to the convention?
I love working with people in the Arts. There’s always a bucket load of innovation, enthusiasm and genuinely lovely people. It’s also a great networking opportunity for me.

Why others should look to attend?
You will be given the opportunity to self-reflect and give you food for thought about your motivations and what you get stuck with. If this resonates with you, this is a must-do session. It will allow you to put your work and home life into context and give you simple techniques to use, beyond the session.

Andonella presents her session at 3pm on Fri 20 March 2020 as part of the National Convention of Youth Drama at Scottish Youth Theatre in Glasgow. Booking is open at
