"We have generally found the actors to be responsive and flexible. I have certainly been impressed by their knowledge of the academic sector and use of appropriate jargon. They have not been fazed by participants who lack engagement with the task. I don’t really have anything negative to say; they have exceeded my expectations."
Sarah, Academic Leadership and Management Development, MMU
"Using Acting UP actors added realism, challenge and an additional dimension to our training."
Joe Bell, Director, Evoke People Development
"The use of Acting UP's actors has ensured that a potentially limiting environment of a training session is truly brought to life and made to feel as real as it can be. The professional actors give a true to life performances of potential candidates. This ensures there isn’t a course that goes by that attendees don’t quote the role-play as the most valuable part of the training as it gives them a realistic take on the experience and what to expect in an interview situation."
Deborah Snell, Investors in People Co-ordinator and
Organisation Development and Training Officer for Manchester Metropolitan University
"We worked with Acting Up on our leadership programme to help support managers to have constructive conversations around performance or conflict. The actors that worked with us were fantastic, highly professional and worked sensitively yet constructively with our delegates. The delegate feedback was excellent e.g. “Fantastic interactive session”, “Great actors – made it real”. I would highly recommend Nancy Monaghan and her team to add value to your training sessions and enhance the learning experience for your delegates."
