TDRP Services

TDRP offers many services, for example:

  • Providing actors for business role play
  • A full consultation regarding your exact role play training needs
  • Scenario script writing and bespoke sales training packages
  • Providing onsite trainers, coaches and facilitators if required
  • Providing corporate presenters and presentation coaches
  • Corporate film production
  • Forum theatre
  • Mystery shopping

And you can take advantage of all of them or just some of them.

Naturally our core business is providing Role Play Actors for business training days. This can be in any format you like, but the most common use of TDRP actors is within a training environment, where we play the part of your staff or customers (sometimes we play a variety of characters) during the session.

Working closely with your trainer and keeping to the training brief, we provide a safe environment for your delegates to practice. If needed, whilst playing the part of your staff or customer, we are able to take the role play situation to both extremes of the spectrum: this can highlight where there is a learning need or just reinforce the effectiveness of current practices.

We can also perform ‘dramatisations’ of typical scenarios ‘within the work place’. For example “What to do” and “What not to do”. These can be very powerful and effective, showcasing and demonstrating in ‘real’ terms to the delegates examples of what works and what doesn’t work.

Forum theatre is a way of having a more interactive session, where there is a direct input from the delegates on how a situation should play out. Think of the actor as a blank canvas, controlled by the delegates. This can be a great and safe way to brainstorm solutions within the workplace.

If you have not had much experience at running training days, then TDRP can help from the beginning. We consult with you on what types of training are useful, and deliver the most effective outcome. We can script write role play scenarios and bespoke training packages and provide the facilitators, trainers, coaches, and feedback reports etc.

TDRP doesn’t stop there: we also have an experienced team of Corporate Presenters. They have travelled all over the world delivering company or brand messages to live conferences, events and product launches, as well as fronting DVD/Online Corporate Films, Infomercials, Website Tours and TV Commercial Campaigns.

TDRP is also able to provide mystery shoppers, whether it be face to face with your sales team or customer service phone calls. We consult with you to create the exact brief which suits your needs then we provide a programme of execution with an agreed grading system followed by a campaign report.

So these are a few of the services that we offer. All TDRP actors and presenters are dedicated, qualified and competent, with a great balance of life experience and corporate social skills.

1. Role Play

Role Playing is used within training days to improve a delegate’s abilities and skills within the work place.

Corporate Role Play with an actor allows the delegate to be actively involved in the learning process and as a result, the message or concept gains a more powerful cognitive memory, with the knock on effect being that it will be remembered and used more often in the future. TDRP Actors can take the stress away from delegates who are anxious about role playing as they can quickly instill confidence and lead a situation during training.

2. Feedback

Feedback is one of the most important areas of a training course and is vital to a delegate’s personal development. TDRP Actors are all skilled in providing constructive or tailored feedback via face-to-face, on camera or written assessments.

3. Consultancy

We provide a flexible consultancy service that can be as simple as a telephone call or email. We will work alongside you to ensure that your training is effective. If you don’t know what you want, let us provide you with some options that we know work.

4. Script Writing

TDRP can write scripted scenarios or workplace ‘dramatic’ reconstructions, which can be performed and/or run as a workshop alongside your training day programme. You, the Client, will have final approval of all scripts prior to your training day.

5. Presenter Script Consultancy – ‘TDRP from Page to Screen’

TDRP Presenter Script Consultancy is a human support tool, which can help take your written message from the page to the screen to achieve a more believable and natural video, visual and audio performance.

6. Customised Training Courses – ‘One size doesn’t always fit all’

To really get the most from your training day, why not create a tailor made company training course or programme through TDRP. We can work closely with you to create, devise and structure a programme plan that is right for you and your delegates.

7. Corporate Film

These are a great way to style your brand, communicate a lifestyle, or just get across some simple messages or instructions, in a format that everyone understands.

8. Forum Theatre – ‘Collective Ideas to find the Solution’

Forum Theatre is an interactive form of theatre that encourages audience interaction and explores different options for dealing with a problem or issue. Your staff / delegates are shown a short scenario in which a central character encounters an oppression or obstacle which he or she is unable to overcome. When the scenario has been performed, your staff / delegates can take to the stage as ‘directors’ to suggest alternative options, creating a kind of theatrical debate, sharing ideas and experiences within the whole group.

9. Voice-Over

Voice-over is a technique where the voice may be
pre-recorded and placed over the top of a film or video and commonly used in documentaries and corporate films, to explain information.

TDRP has its own professional recording facility, using studio quality Rode NT2A Mics, Focusrite interface and engineered on Adobe Audition CC exporting MP3, WAV or AIFF. This enables us to turnaround voice projects quickly, at very competitive rates. Perfect for e-Learning modules, product features or instructional films.

10. Mystery Customers – ‘Front Line Feedback’

TDRP ‘Mystery Customers’ , also known as ‘mystery shoppers’ can be a vital tool for getting the real, frontline feedback and opinions of your customers, which is vital to successfully growing your Business or Brand.
