Activation have been one of our most successful suppliers and have gained a regional reputation of excellence. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to you.— Janet Butterworth Deputy Director - Service Experience Directorate NHS North of England
With highly experienced professional role-players, we are ideally suited to help the individual explore issues in a realistic and controllable way. Unbiased feedback is a crucial part of the role-play process and is focused on ensuring that the participant’s needs have been addressed.
We've recently been working with a London based management consultancy running an Interview Skills programme for a major City Investment Bank. Activation provided role-players to help participants practice their interviewing skills and provide them with constructive feedback.
Providing the opportunity for interactive theatre and shared learning, Forum Theatre brings to life a range of issues relevant to the organisation and allows learners in a safe environment to experience 'best practice'. Alongside this we also employ 'hot-seating' which allows learners to question the characters to get a deeper understanding of issues and behaviours.
Forum theatre scenarios were researched and scripted for the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The scenarios highlighted some of the key issues senior managers were needing to address. Having played out the scenarios the actors were guided by the audience on how to handle the situation more effectively.
"The scenarios were so true to life. Watching the actors and being able to interact with them really helped to bring out the learning. I found it a fascinating process and have learned a lot" Course participant, EBRD
