ABOUT

Have you ever thought about the skill-set of an actor?

 

The unique tools they are taught?

 

 

Tools that help:

 

Confidence

 

Presentation (Stagecraft, body movement and language, position)

 

Expression (voice, enunciation, projection)

Creative Collaboration

 

Knowing your worth and who you are

 

Memory (learning tricks, retention)

Focus

Improvisation

Why shouldn't you have access to these tools and skills just because you're not an actor?

Rewards Drama teaches acting tools for presentation & confidence so that business owners, ceo's, managers, educators & government departments and agencies can overcome fears, & confidently & effectively reach their audience.

We provide professional training and consulting, so you can excel in a position of authority and create the most powerful presentations on stage, in the room and on-camera.

We offer an Online Course, 1:1 or Group Online Training, as well as In-Person 1:1 or Group Training, Workshops and Conferences.

In addition, Amanda Meyer is available as a speaker, both online and in person.

Presenting well and confidently is a SKILL SET that CAN be learned!

A WORD

from the Founder and Director of Rewards Drama, Amanda Meyer

Hi! I'm Amanda and I am a Professional Presentation Skills, Public Speaking, On-Camera, Confidence Trainer.

I teach Public Speaking, On-Camera Skills & Presence by Utilising the Actors Skill Set.

Rewards Drama translates acting and directing skills (my background for 20 years) to the business and performance worlds so that you can overcome fears, and confidently and effectively reach your audience on stage, in the room and on-camera. 

I saw through my work in the acting world, how life changing the skills taught to actors can be. Skills that enable them to stand up on any stage or stare into the camera lens -without fear- because they know that they have the expertise and skill to do so well. 

 

However, over the years, I got more and more and more frustrated because I saw, time and again, people who are amazing at what they do, but when it came to sharing that with others, speak to a crowd, pitch to the board, film their expertise on camera, they are completely let down by their lack of skills for presenting themselves effectively to their audiences. 

 

I was further frustrated because I saw that people in the business world need those skills but that traditional public speaking training and groups fall far short of the mark.

Aware that I had the answers and the expertise that people so desperately needed, I turned my attention to creating a training system utilising the actors and directors skill set and Rewards Drama was born!  
 

I have unique insights into presenting and how to unleash your potential. I can bring the skill set that actors are taught and translate it into your corporate world. I am an authority in the field and Rewards Drama is well renowned.

So many people have a fear of public speaking and being on camera. These days though, both are crucial in our work life. Learning the skills to do so well and having the 'behind the scenes' knowledge is the key!

And I have that knowledge. It is my job and my passion to share it and to see others succeed because of it.

However, at Rewards Drama, I focus not only on stagecraft, voice, body, and on camera work, but on worth, individuality and the importance of our own voice.

I have worked with all ages and with a wide variety of people: Singers and Performers, Business Owners, Students, Speakers, Trainers and Coaches, CEO's of Global Companies and High Level Government Departments.

In addition to my work in Rewards Drama I've taught acting, written and directed for the stage and written many training programs, articles, manuals, as well as numerous fictional pieces. 

I've studied Directing, Acting, Writing, Screenwriting, Teaching, Training and Assessment, Business Studies, Psychology, HR and Training in the Workplace.

Most recently, I was the Head of the Drama Department at Australian Centre of Performing Arts for almost 3 years, before choosing to leave to found Rewards Drama.

Suffice to say, I know what I am doing - and I can help you to present well and effectively!

I am passionate about helping people find their own voice, confidence and creative gifting.

I look forward to working with you to achieve YOUR best!

~Amanda

FAQ'S
IS REWARDS DRAMA ANOTHER ACTING SCHOOL TEACHING PEOPLE TO ACT?

No. Rewards Drama uses acting and directing methods that have been restricted to acting schools teaching actors only... until now!

 

Rewards Drama isn't trying to teach people to be actors, but how to utilise the specialised acting skills.

Bonus - we won't subject you to 'trust' exercises or embarrassing theatre sports either! 

 

We provide you with the technical and practical skill set that are known to improve presentation, poise, confidence and effectual communication.

Why wouldn't you learn the skills for yourself?
