My NAC Arts Education Programmes:
STORIES WITH STUFF: designed to get primary participants creating and then telling stories using everyday objects . So a ruler could become a wand, an escalator, a sword, a bridge . . .
STORIES FOR SUCCESS What career are your students considering? Sales, Business, Healthcare, Lawyer, Educator, Tourism, Politics, Entrepreneur? Whatever path they choose, the ability to tell a good story will make them more effective in their role (and probably more popular too!) Stories help us connect. They make abstract ideas concrete, giving us a clear idea of what things like ‘integrity’ or ‘excellence’ or ‘going the extra mile’ look like.
WRITING RIVETTING STORIES : a highly interactive creative writing programme which can be tailored to your student’s interests as they play with the building blocks of character, setting, goals and problems,
Stories are a great way to bring people together. Everyone listens to a story with their own ears, so the same story can appeal to both young and old but for different reasons.

Tailoring a performance to be site specific is a fascinating challenge in order to make the most of what the space offers in terms of its geography, the audience-teller dynamic and of course its own history.
Corporate clients have included A*STAR, Allianz, Google, Hour Glass, Maritime Port Authority, Procter & Gamble, Singapore University of social Sciences. the story workshops have been given to frontline staff, as well as management from mid-level to country managers of multi-nationals.

VOICE-OVER & AUDIO DESCRIPTION
I am an expressive, dramatic reader with a flair for comedy and charcterisation. My accent is definitely English.
The variety of audiobooks I have narrated for Storytel reflects my range – from kids to teen, sci-fi, adult 9even erotic) fiction and plenty of seriuos non-ficiton books.
I am proud to be a trained audio-describer as I believe this is an important service increasing accessibility for the vision-impaired. Although I describe productions predominnantly staged with SRT & WILD RICE, I am always open to describing for other companies
