How it Works:

During the first session, the client will be filmed presenting any literature of their choice. If the client does not have any, we will provide them with that literature.

Our Acting Coach will work with the client to improve on the delivery and performance of that literature for a number of sessions as per the client’s requirements. Thereafter, on the last session, we will invite other professional actors for a peer review as well as the client’s chosen audiences, be it family members, colleagues or friends for a private performance which will also be filmed for comparison purposes.

We will also have a question and answer session after the final performance. The Client will be supplied with a video of both their performances, a ‘’Before & After’’.

Our main objective is to help our clients to be able to stand in front of a live audience with the sole purpose to inform, persuade and entertain while doing that.
