Have you ever thought about the skill-set of an actor?
The unique tools they are taught?
Tools that help:
Presentation (Stagecraft, body movement and language, position)
Expression (voice, enunciation, projection)
Knowing your worth and who you are
Memory (learning tricks, retention)
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 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!
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, Trainer and Coach.
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 became frustrated because I saw 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!
At Rewards Drama, I focus not only on the technical aspects of stagecraft, voice, body, and on camera work, but also on mindset, worth, individuality and the importance of our own voice.
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.
I studied Directing, Acting, Writing, Screenwriting, Teaching, Training and Assessment, Business Studies, and Psychology.
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, as well as numerous fictional pieces.
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: Business Owners, Students, Singers and Performers, Speakers, Educators and Coaches, CEO's of Global Companies and High Level Government Departments.
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!

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?
