Director at Engage 4 Insights - Innovation with Customer Insights
What Amanda so effectively delivers are professional techniques you can use straight away to polish your preparation and performance instead of fragments of knowledge you may pick up along the way, but not really know how to implement.
I was very keen to undertake the Rewards Drama training to improve my presentation skills in my business.
I have a regular commitment to produce LinkedIn videos, along with live presentations in both small and groups.
Time is of the essence in producing the content, and securing engagement at the point of delivery.
I personally found the video homework exercises very beneficial during the course, because of Amanda's one-to-one feedback. And I was able to rapidly improve and gain more confidence each week.
I feel a lot more confident in presenting now, armed with all the practical tips and personalised feedback.
Amanda has a very clearly expressed method of teaching, as you might expect :)
The material in the live class is well-paced and easy to follow.
The homework is very valuable, putting learnings into practice, and receiving personalised feedback.
This all adds to being immersed in a wide range of skills and acting method 'secrets', that are very focused, and not the hit & miss we would normally put up with otherwise.
And your homework receives very detailed, practical feedback. This really helps your week-by-week progress.
Other benefits include the excellent workbooks which are packed with useful information for reference in the future.
Amanda also curates a great series of videos relating to each lesson's themes which are very stimulating & explanatory.
The live and online environment is well suited to delivering the benefits because it's all about acquiring skills in 2-way communication and interaction and being in a group provides an enjoyable social aspect.
As I'm producing weekly videos, I was able to put ideas straight into practice with an immediate improvement in the quality of my presentation.
I would recommend Rewards Drama to anyone who needs to pitch ideas, present concepts and generally educate & inform.
The acting methods you tap into are made immediately accessible at a most practical level.
Things you may have said in the past "I wonder how on earth they do that" are revealed as common-sense and not magical. Though the end result should be magic!
As the name says, Drama can bring great Rewards in personal development.
I look forward to continuing to apply everything I've learned, as it’s not a one-time benefit, but something you can grow into each time you need to present.
Rewards Drama is good value as it’s an investment in your personal 'brand', and I would recommend future participants take full advantage of every aspect.
It’s not a massive time commitment, but the quality is worth every minute you spend in class, on the homework, and in ongoing review.
I would be happy to work with Amanda again in the future too, as I'm sure there's always room to grow.
It's stimulating, fun, and ultimately rewarding!
Director at Accellier Education
I have long held the opinion that actors have a very unique and useful skill set that can benefit people in their careers and businesses.
Where do people learn about acting skills without going off to film school or joining their local theatre group though?
Rewards Drama answered this question.
The training has given me a very practical toolkit and a broad range of new ideas and inspiration to continue to grow and excel as a presenter.
The training included homework activities that really gave me the ability to practice what was learnt, as well as get valuable feedback from Amanda.
Having a highly accomplished acting professional provide detailed feedback on my skills as they grew through the training (and they did!) was hugely beneficial.
I loved the ability to get feedback from Amanda on my performance as I applied the new skills and knowledge.
I would strongly recommend this program to anyone wishing to unlock skills in becoming a highly effective communicator.
There are things in this program you just cannot learn any other way than to apply them in a way that an actor would, and get great feedback from a professional.
I would recommend this to anyone wanting to build their skill-set in presenting, training, social-media video content production, digital video making etc.
You could literally apply these lessons in so many aspects of life.
'Persuasive Presenting On Stage and On Camera' is an incredible program that got me out of myself and onto another level of presenting and communicating.
The link between the world of acting and business + everyday life is uncovered and a range of invaluable skills developed.
Amanda is a fantastic facilitator who really helped me grow as a presenter, trainer and these skills are transferring into my personal life also.
You're in for a real journey if you join this program. Strongly recommended.

I took the 'Persuasive Presenting' Rewards Drama Training to become a more confident speaker, to learn some techniques on how to slow down, not stumble over my words and run out of breath.
I also wanted to learn some tips for doing Facebook Lives and other video presentations.
Stage presence and emphasis was a big light bulb moment for me.
Where to stand on the stage, how to emphasise what you are saying or change where you want your audience's attention to go.
The training has made me a more confident speaker, understanding subtle things that can make my stage presence greater.
Tips on how to improve memory and enunciation were of a huge benefit.
The training is taught in an online platform with interactive sessions and after class assignments that reinforce and cement the session learnings.
Amanda gives fabulous personalised feedback on the homework that also helps with the learning and how you and apply it to your situation.
Benefits are a better understanding of the subtleties of posture and voice when presenting and how to harness them to your benefit.
The workbooks provided mean we have references forevermore to go back and continue practicing.
I have plans now on how to make my Facebook lives more professional and how I can create a studio for online video tutorials.
I'd recommend this training to professionals wanting to improve their public speaking and video presence.
I will use the knowledge I have learnt to create professional standard tutorials for an online course and improve my presence in face-to-face presentations.

The Rewards Drama 'Persuasive Presenting on Stage and on Camera' Training really helped me to stop and think about what I am presenting and how I am presenting myself.
From tone of voice to lighting, it will bring new life to my videos.
My primary reason for taking the training was that while I've been doing video presentations for quite some time, I've never done any formal training and thought I could learn some tips to make it more effective and connect with my audience better.
Plus it sounded fun!
I enjoyed the lessons and the workbooks.
Combined they bring together a good mix of practical knowledge that I will constantly refer back to when preparing my videos.
I can highly recommend Rewards Drama to anyone who isn't feeling confident in their presentation skills.
Rewards Drama gives that knowledge and training to help make you more comfortable in front of people and take that leap into presenting more.
