What our customers say about Theatre Skills for Business:
A very successful workshop, supporting a different, fun and powerful way of engaging staff. The platform for pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zone, giving licence to fail and generosity of idea sharing was firmly set from the beginning. Some of the ideas generated at the event have gone on to implementation with very positive outcomes.

‘I would highly recommend the course, for senior people, presenting a lot, doesn't mean you can’t improve drastically and for juniors, it’s seriously confidence boosting. The course is for everyone and the tip and exercises easy to apply straight away. Highly recommended’
‘Feedback has been excellent. We enjoyed Andrea’s instructions on how best to use the voice and the exercises were great and beneficial. Thank you so much for all the planning in advance you were a pleasure to work with'.
