Most staff training doesn’t bring lasting change to how people communicate, so they feel disengaged.

Our proven drama based training helps people be confident in challenging presentations and conversations, so they are happier and more motivated.

Sessions range from 60 minutes to half or full days for individual participants, teams and/or groups.

Have you found that people aren't acting on their training?
  • Does your staff have impressive technical skills but are not strong managers and team leaders? In growing businesses, strong management and leadership skills are essential for staff retention.

  • Is giving presentations a top fear for your staff? Whether it’s presenting reports, giving client presentations, or sharing ideas in team meetings, poor presentation skills lose impact.

  • Do your leaders lack skills to provide essential feedback or face difficult conversations? Effective managers need to know how to communicate clearly and empower their teams, face to face or in virtual meetings.

  • Are your training models implemented? Experiential learning creates lasting change. Research shows that practice, with theory, results in improved behavior.

Corporate actors are experts in non-verbal communication, and will guide your staff with practice  to have more empathy, impact and influence at work.

From Our Team

“After a year doing several rounds of sessions with so many types of people it’s amazing to see how much people are able to take away from less than 2 hours of a process – kudos to them, kudos to you and your team for creating a simple and powerful process..”


Role Play

In person or virtual training, our actor/facilitators will assist your Assessment and Development Processes by roleplaying as subordinates, senior managers, partners and clients. Constructive feedback is given in a supportive environment.

Critical Conversations

Participants describe a current problematic work place situation, and enact it with a corporate actor. This is an opportunity to practice new skills and receive instant feedback and coaching to foster effective teamwork.

Presentation Skills

We deliver on-site training to your staff – in large or small groups, or individuals. Training them in the actors expertise of physical and vocal skills improves personal impact, engages the audience and brings home the message!

Virtual Sessions

Practice that meeting, presentation or difficult scenario, learn leadership and management strategies, at your home or work. We’ll come to you at a fraction of the cost of on-site Training. Hone your skills with a professional actor/coach.

Event Performances

Conference performances are modeled on your specific workplace issues. Actors demonstrate ‘ineffective’ behaviors and invite audience suggestions to improve and show ‘effective’ skills for interactions. Entertaining learning!

E-Learning Videos

Peers and Players can write, cast actors, shoot, edit and deliver your corporate videos with your message clearly delivered. Our team works efficiently to capture your learning needs for maximum impact with a professional look.
