Course participant reviews for National Theatre
There was definitely an air of anticipation and light dusting of anxiety as we awaited what was in store for the day. What followed I cannot recommend more highly. A very engaging day with two tutor-actors who immediately made us feel at ease and created an open and inviting atmosphere. We received personal feedback throughout the day from t...
Stimulating, interactive, thought provoking and more than your usual training. Really appreciated the extras that made it a great experience all round - nice lunch trip to the Theatre's restaurant, a ticket to a play in the evening included, and detailed written feedback afterwards.
I really enjoyed the course and it was different from all the other courses I have done over the years. I think with any training course you are lucky if you take away more than 2-3 rules of thumb to keep in your head afterwards – most courses where you sit at a desk and get inundated with information and a big book of papers is all forgotten wi...
A great session, covering voice, posture, movement, emotion and presence, in a truly interactive, experiential way. Lots of practice and feedback from the coaches and your fellow students. Strongly recommended
A well constructed, well run course, which challenged me in exactly the way I hoped it would when signing up. Even if I remember only some of the techniques it will help improve my presentational skills, and on a personal levelhelp me enjoy the experience of presenting more.
One of the best courses I have been on. Highly practical and engaging. Highly recommended.
I had fun on the course and the exercises and feedback has proved valuable for my work, social life and fitness
Good course. Well run. Great moderators. Felt more like a traditional impact course than the other theatreworks course I did which was very theatre technique dominated. The card exercise and the place yourself on a map exercises were useful but something ive done before. The theatre element is your USP so you should press that home more (from th...
excellent in all aspects from start to finish - lots of fun too

Theatreworks is designed to push you out of your comfort zone and it really does! Using theatrical exercises and techniques throughout the day really helped to highlight different ways of communicating. Working with the group and facilitators, I also learned how I can come across more confidently to make my voice heard and engage people I'm pres...
The course's highlight was the individualised personal feedback on how to improve one's impact. The course moderators were really good.
This course would suit anyone who wants to improve their influence in a meeting or who has difficulty with building rapport with others. It is a really effective course, any self consciousness was quickly over come during the morning’s exercises. It was fun and enjoyable. I left feeling energised and confident that I could put into prac...
An excellent course. Any self consciousness was quickly over come during the morning’s exercises. It was fun and enjoyable. I grew in self confidence during the day, as I effectively communicated to a group of strangers during the exercises. I left feeling “I can do this”.
It has been a really good experience to spend 2 days at National Theatre and get chance to learn some of the great techniques in communication.

I signed up to the Personal Impact course not knowing what to expect, with the intention of overcoming my nerves and apprehension towards public speaking and presenting. I came away from the course feeling revived - it was a really enjoyable day and I learnt ways to overcome my nerves and increase my confidence. It was great to be able to share ...
This course helps you become a better, more confident version of yourself. Skilled coaches give you space to figure out your strengths and weaknesses. Very encouraging, supportive and enjoyable. Five stars!
Although I was expecting a fun and engaging course from the National Theatre, I wasn't expecting it to be so productive. I have come away with so many techniques and tips to help improve how I come across in a variety of different situations. There was also ample personalised feedback and one-to-one work on individual problems which I thought wa...
This was a super workshop - full of practical advice and tips, and the chance to try it out in a safe and supportive environment.
Thought provoking, practical and relevant training, provided by facilitators who really know their stuff and how to enable others to put it to good use for themselves.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one day workshop. Although not necessarily aimed at me (my objective was not that of strengthening my personal impact but rather to think about using the programme in my own work), nonetheless I had great fun, thought it was very valuable and yes, I learnt something for me as an individual.
Very fulfilling and rewarding experience, 100% practical and tailored to delegates' needs.
I really enjoyed the training day and more than that, I feel that I have taken something tangible away which will be beneficial to me in my work as a CFO in the Financial Services sector. I thought that the trainers, Corinne and Tom, were excellent. As well as being very engaging, I was particularly impressed that they were very perceptive to ea...
