‘I have used Peers and Players on a number of occasions and they have consistently provided actors with exceptional acting ability and communication skills. On this occasion the actor was perfect for the client, and delivered a great balance of challenging portrayals of the characters, with supportive and practical feedback.’
‘From the moment I began speaking with Lisa I felt the clear focus on ensuring our situation was clearly understood to develop an exercise that would be believable and valuable. The professionalism and attention to detail was evident throughout the development and execution of the exercise. After the exercise, feedback from the participants was outstanding; several stating it was the best training experience in our organization’s 51-year history. If you are looking for a unique yet powerful way to approach an organizational issue I can’t more enthusiastically recommend Peers and Players.’

‘In several of our Learning & Development programs, KPMG uses professional actors from Peers and Players to play roles in simulated meetings.
KPMG has found that because the actors are well prepared and know their brief well, they are also effective at ad-libbing where appropriate. In addition to acting out the the role, the actors provide feedback to the participants they interact with, and their feedback has been well received by participants. Overall, the involvement of the actors enhances the credibility of the role plays and improves the learning experience for participants.

‘Lisa and her team were quickly able to capture the essence of our client’s business objectives and craft a completely unique method of communicating and engaging the audience with their key messages. With a turn around of two weeks from brief to show they succeeded in engaging the audience’s emotions, imagination and intellect and exceeding the communication objectives.’

‘Working with Peers & Players on our recent Performance Leader training seminars was a fantastic experience. They took the time to really grasp what our agenda was and helped us via the role-plays and their great insight to meet these objectives. The actors, Brendon and Sarah, were brilliant – capturing the true nature of the scenarios by being the “difficult” employee ! And pushing and challenging each Performance Leader they interacted with. The role-play was a vital part of our training and helped complete the overall session.’
