Add a bit of DRAMA to your workforce

Excellent communication skills are vital to success in life. Acquiring and practising good, effective communication at work is not a luxury or an optional extra, but essential for success. We can train your team, using internationally applied theatre techniques, to improve all aspects of communication – from basic confidence to physical and vocal awareness; from making a great first impression, to engaging a client or audience.

Our experience perfectly aligns us to upskill your team in developing the tools needed to succeed in business and life.

Reference – SA Home Loans, May 2017

I had a vision in my head of what I wanted the roleplays to look and feel like, the journey I wanted to take the delegates on and the impact that I wanted the scenarios to land with the delegates. The role plays were a segment of a greater whole and it was integral that their true impact was landed in order to adequately and sufficiently deliver the learning objectives of a 2 day journey. The actors surpassed my expectations. You guys just ‘got it’. You got my direction, my vision and the intangible quality of what I was trying to deliver. You and your team truly made the vision come alive. I had to take a moment occasionally to say…is this actually happening right now? It felt too good to be true! I CANNOT thank you enough! I appreciate the time and effort it must have taken to deliver to this standard. I am so proud of the work you guys are doing, what a pool of talent in our very own Durban!

Reference – Peter Halford, June 2017 “From a young age I’ve always had a problem with articulation and speaking in public and as time went on I started to withdraw from a social setting and kept to myself.  To my surprise After our very first classes friends and family noticed a considerable difference in my articulation and projection. Nicole was always professional and had carefully crafted lessons to empower me with actionable tools and exercise for my permanent results. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone who is considering the course as she improved my confidence and help me get my voice back.”
