Corporate Role Play

WHAT IS CORPORATE ROLE PLAY and how can a bunch of actors help your company?

WE TAKE AN INITIAL BRIEF FROM YOU, CHOOSE A GROUP OF SUITABLE AND DIVERSE PROFESSIONAL ACTORS AND COMMUNICATION SPECIALISTS, REHEARSE and then, after the performance, it’s over to your “spect-actors”

Think of the actors as crash test dummies

  • They act out a scene designed specifically for your business
  • They get it horribly wrong
  • Time and time again they get it wrong and need to be assisted by the “spect-actors” (your staff members)
  • The “spect-actors” are encouraged to make suggestions on how to improve the interactions

Why Corporate Role Play Works

  • Corporate Role Play is highly interactive, entertaining and energising, with little chalk and talk and lots of get up and do.
  • During traditional training, delegates do not get the opportunity to practice until they get the interaction down pat.
  • There is no right or wrong – just experimentation
  • Enables participants to test out various courses 0f action
  • Is fun and interactive
  • We learn by “doing”
  • The spect-actors are an integral part of the training session
  • Highlight Pitfalls
  • Improve Communications

  • Seeing it Happen as a Third Party
