Yesterday I attended a Masterclass with Joan Collins.   While Ms. Collins herself is, of course, an accomplished actress, I found I got much less out of this particular Masterclass than I have others. Typically, in a Masterclass, the practitioner delivering it will impart some instruction or knowledge. I found that in this particular instance, we got a run-down of … Read More
