“At South City Hospital, we have been working closely with the Drama Academy on the corporate programme which is a benefit to both professional and personal lives. The CEO is thrilled with the results and is keen to continue the programme, until all her 500 members of staff have had a chance to work with the Helen O’Grady team.”

“The team and I really enjoyed actively participating in the development through drama class. Every activity was modelled well and encouraged others to jump in and immerse themselves in the productive playfulness which characterises this class.

We believe all lessons should be imbued with this joyful playfulness and are keen to engage our staff in drama training so they develop the confidence and flexibility to shape their own lessons so they are delivered with dramatic methodologies.”

“I’m so glad I approached the Helen O Grady team for help with developing my vocal projection and public speaking. The team made me feel so at ease in my first consultation and were really keen to make sure they fully understood what I needed and why. They put together a tailored programme for me helping me to develop not only my vocal skills but body language and confidence. The sessions were really fun and so enlightening. I left the sessions feeling I had learnt so much about how to deliver a more polished performance in my role. I was able to apply the techniques straight away and have actively sought opportunities to speak to large audiences. The sessions have also given me much more confidence in the workplace generally, and in dealing with everyday situations which I would previously have found very uncomfortable. The cost of the sessions was more than reasonable. Deciding to ask for help from the Helen O Grady team was definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made!”
