The training covers 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. 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 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 very detailed, practical one-to-one feedback. And I was able to rapidly improve and gain more confidence each week. Other benefits include the excellent textbook which is packed with useful information for reference in the future. The acting methods you tap into are made immediately accessible at a most practical level. As the name says, Drama can bring great Rewards in personal development.
Rewards Drama is 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!
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. I loved 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 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. 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.
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 how to make it more effective and connect with my audience better. Plus it sounded fun! From tone of voice to lighting, it will bring new life to my videos.
I enjoyed the sessions, textbook and homework. 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.
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 was a big help to me.
The training has made me a more confident speaker, understanding subtle things that can make my stage presence greater and how to harness them to my 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 apply it to your situation. The textbook provided mean we have references forevermore to go back and continue practicing. I'd recommend this training to professionals wanting to improve their public speaking and video presence.
A W O R D
Founder and Director
of Rewards Drama,
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 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, and 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!

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.
We provide you with the technical and practical skill set that are known to improve presentation, poise, confidence and effectual communication.
Think about what is it that shows that an actor or director is successful.
It is their ability to invoke emotion and reach the audience with their story and message.
There is psychology and strategy and a time-tested craft behind this success.
This is why the strategies and dedication to the craft of acting and directing is such a powerful resource for those who need to reach their audience.
Actors and directors are trained for years how to convince an audience, move your emotions, be seen as authentic and effective communicators, and confidently master the stage and film.
Now busy corporate leaders and public figures can benefit from our years of training and experience with personalised attention and ALL the training needed to quickly master the stage and camera.
We don’t ask you to do anything embarrassing, participate in trust exercises or imagine yourself to be a giraffe!
Unlike groups like ‘Toastmasters’ we don’t insist you practice in front of people until you feel more comfortable – but still are no good at public speaking!
Instead, Rewards Drama brings you exactly what you need in the marketplace – the technical and practical skills to be an effectual and confident communicator.
The Rewards Drama training ‘Persuasive Presenting On Stage and On Camera’ is taught in four separate ‘Scenes’ (modules).
1/ You Separately and You in a Team

4/ Filming and Execution
Every client will receive a comprehensive pdf textbook covering all of the training.
The training is delivered in 10 x 60 minute sessions.
We recommend one session a week for 10 weeks, however, the sessions can be undertaken in a condensed time period if desired.
In addition, we suggest that you allow 1 hour for the Homework Requirement and implementation after each of the 10 sessions.
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.
Further support in the form of Ongoing 1:1 Consulting Packages is available after completion to help you to implement the training and grow and develop.
