Picture of Amanda Meyer of Rewards DramaLove Learning Podcast: What educators can learn from actors.

Did you know SAVE Training has a Podcast? It's called Love Learning and is designed to distill the wisdom, experience, knowledge and skills from highly successful people who can help educators and other professionals grow and learn.

In this episode I speak with Amanda Meyer who is one of those people you meet with such enthusiasm and passion for what they do, it's infectious. I wanted to speak with Amanda because she's onto something exciting that I've long held the belief can give trainers, teachers and presenters a real edge - acting skills.

I first met Amanda a few years ago when she undertook some professional development with us in the TAEDEL501 Facilitate e-learning unit. Amanda has now launched her own specialised training teaching acting skills to non-actors as tools for everyday life.

Amanda knows that acting skills help people with confidence, presentation skills, expression, creativity, collaboration, self-worth, memory and focus.
