We are a communication training company that specialises in Drama technique and Psychology theory. We are experts in communication training because of our unique blend of teaching, performance expertise and the way in which our methods are grounded in business context. We know that experiencing techniques in a practical way is the only way to create lasting behavioural change. Annie Fine was a secondary school teacher for many years. Based on the principles and expertise of teaching Drama in Secondary education, Annie witnessed the power of Drama in developing confidence and inspiration for teenagers. We have used these principles and have applied them to communication skills for adults, in a commercial environment. The techniques we use really enhance communication skills for better productivity at work.
At AF Communications, we look at techniques that we have researched, developed and then shared with success. We encourage all our techniques to be practised after each training session because the tools we provide really focus on authenticity for each individual. We have a distinctive and fresh approach as our aim is to provide interpersonal skills for people at work in a variety of business environments.
As a team we are addicted to the power of the performing arts as the only method to unlock potential and allow people to gain self- awareness. Our expertise lies in translating the art form we use and making it relevant to the work environment.
We see individuals who really progress throughout the session, gaining insights and self-awareness that can instantly transform their communication. We run interactive group exercises which focus on each person feeling and becoming empowered in their daily working life. The work is all experiential – it gives candidates a chance to see what a technique sounds and feels like, before taking it back into the workplace.
