Setting the Stage for Personal Growth

Stage actors are storytellers, creators, collaborators, and directors. They train physically, vocally, and emotionally in order to be as effective communicating with an audience of one thousand as they are with an audience of one.

An actor’s skill set provides a competitive advantage for people working in our modern business environment. As more professionals are working remotely, how do you connect with your team and lead them when you’re physically distant? Our team can help you discover ways to build relationships and connections online, engage and influence, and keep up the creative collaboration—even through a computer screen.

"[The] trainings . . . focused on skills that engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians don’t often get to practice at the office: loosening up the body and being aware of its impulses and feelings, breathing deeply and deliberately, and acting or speaking from the truth of the moment instead of from some notion of what giving a presentation is supposed to look like."

“I was blown away with the result of mixing brilliant technical talent with brilliant theater professionals. Our best technical talent developed a command of theater techniques which will allow them to effectively deliver a compelling story about big data, whether in a bar or in the boardroom.”
