LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

Social distancing measures have changed the nature of my teaching work, but in the meantime, I feel very fortunate to be able to teach online. I currently work with North Wales Music Tuition Centres and with Bitesize Theatre as a singing tutor. I also work with Hijinx Theatre Company as a facilitator; I tutor Neurodivergent professional actors a variety of performance skills as part of an ongoing performance training programme. I also run one off workshops for independent clients; the most recent being for Venue Cymru as part of their 'Take pART' festival and with Leonard Cheshire as part of their activity programme for residents. 

 Alongside my work as a performer and tutor, I've also enjoyed work in corporate settings as a coach and project coordinator; helping individuals or groups to establish the key problems holding them back from success, defining what that success does (and doesn't) look like to shape a project concept, then planning steps towards where they want to be. Details of my current and past projects are below.
