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?


The Rewards Drama 'Persuasive Presenting' training is taught online 1:1 or in a group or in person training and conferences.

When booking online services, please make sure that you booking in your own time zone or account for time differences. All days and times are listed in AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time).

Please contact us to enquire about any group or in person options.


The Rewards Drama training ‘Persuasive Presenting On Stage and On Camera’

is taught in 4 separate 'Scenes'.


1/ You Separately and You in a Team

2/ Vocal Expression and Pre-production

3/ Physical Expression and Directorial Concept

4/ Filming and Execution



Every client will receive a comprehensive pdf textbook covering all of the training.

The training is delivered in 8 x 60 minute sessions.

​In addition, we ask that you allow 1 hour for the Homework Requirement and implementation after each module. ​The homework is to put into practice what we have just covered in the session, grow your skills and to help you understand for yourself the points made and tools taught. 

The sessions can be used to go through the 'Persuasive Presenting' training together, as well as a focus on your own individual needs and areas to prioritise and work on a specific project if you wish.

Ideally 1 or 2 sessions for each module is required to get through all of the content and training. 

However, we will focus on the modules that are most relevant to you and spend the time where it is needed most.


Further sessions and support is recommended after completion to help you to implement the training and grow and develop. Ongoing 1:1 Coaching Packages are available.


There are no prerequisites to take part in the training.

You will, however, need access to the following if you are doing the training online:

from the Founder and Director of Rewards Drama, Amanda Meyer

I saw through my work in the performing arts, 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 when I worked in business, I became frustrated because I saw people who are amazing at what they do, but when it came to sharing that with others, speaking 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 they 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 studied Directing, Acting, Writing, Screenwriting, Teaching, Training and Assessment, Business Studies, Leadership, and Psychology. With this background I have unique insights into presenting and how to unleash your potential. 

In addition to my work in Rewards Drama and my own creative endeavours, I have taught acting, written and directed for the stage and written many training programs, articles, manuals for the business and training communities, as well as numerous fictional pieces. I have extensive leadership experience in multiple roles, including managing a national company.

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.

I have worked with all ages and with a wide variety of people around the world: CEO's and Executives of Global Companies and High Level Government Department Leaders, Business Owners, Students, Singers and Performers, Speakers, and Educators and Coaches.

I am passionate about helping people find their own voice, mastering their platforms, and confidently excelling in a position of authority.

I look forward to working with you!
