Theatre for Business

 

 

This is a great way of using my actor's skills in non-theatrical contexts and environments. It's huge fun, challenges you to get your head (and mouth) around unfamiliar jargon with minimal rehearsal, and makes you think on your feet, bigtime. But then it's the seat-of-the-pants stuff that can give the biggest buzz.

 

It also equips the audience with vital skills that actors tend to take for granted, like how to use your physicality and voice to feel better about yourself and give the right impression to others. Seeing that lightbulb go on for people who've never thought about it before is the very best bit.

I have a whole other website about this if you want to read more.
