Robin's technique for breathing life into a performance is through her patented Robin Dunn's F.A.C.E. technique. F.A.C.E., an acronym for Focus, Attitude, Confidence, Energy and Eye Contact, is a tightly constructed technique designed to develop and enhance artists, business professionals and individuals with being more comfortable on stage, camera, the work place and in their everyday lives. Robin's F.A.C.E. received rave reviews in Moscow for addressing 2,000 marketing professionals of Meridian International Group for two consecutive years. The workshops are currently being offered in New York City and are available for venues worldwide.
