Debra Stevens Training Director
I am driven by inspiring people to work on themselves, I believe that’s my purpose and even after all these years I love it. I enjoy the whole process of partnering with clients and putting together a workshop just for them, the job is creative, challenging and extremely varied. I have been privileged to travel all over the world visiting over 37 different countries working with different cultures and businesses. I feel I have learnt more from the learners and my customers than they have from me and for that I am so grateful.
Working with actors is a real joy, they are creative and talented and over the years we have worked together to perfect the art of experiential workshops. Using forum theatre, consequential theatre, simulations and demonstrations we are always coming up with new exciting ways to train learners that are challenging, realistic, practical, fun and linked to our customers key objectives.
As we move into an age of technology, AI and robots, soft skills such as empathy, communication and self-awareness are going to be essential to business, which means we will have an even bigger part to play in inspiring behavioural change.
Greg Harris Actor & Trainer
Once knowing what their story is, people can see the possibilities of creating a different story, the probabilities of rewards that a new role within the different story brings and the potential their new story gives their world.
The real power comes from the fact that people’s stories are rarely finished and as all writers will tell you – All writing is about rewriting…
Then again, maybe I’m still just nosy??
