What our clients say about us
Our existing clients consistently tell us that it comes down to three factors: our Commerciality, our Feedback, and our Style.
Running assessments virtually is a new area for us but this is necessary in the current situation. We were unsure how role-plays would work virtually but are pleased to say that they have worked well. We have worked with AII for many years and value the input they have at our assessment centres. Although some of the body language subtleties are not as overt as they may be when everybody is in the room you are still able to see each other and have a good discussion. The role AII play in this is twofold; they play the part as briefed but with their own interpretation which makes it real to life and they also provide excellent feedback about the candidates and their performance. They are vital in the review session as they bring an additional perspective to the discussion.
It is a joy and delight to work with Actors in Industry. I absolutely loved the way they approached the scenarios and how much they went out of their way to find out about Taylor Wessing beforehand. It enabled them to weave specific examples into their scenarios with such ease. Gigi and Matt were both able to put the candidates at ease, even in a digital environment and had prepared in advance for any potential technical glitches. Their involvement in our assessment centres has been successful and seamless
We had a real play session with Adam. We worked in small groups of 5 people which recreated the feeling of the audience in small groups. Adam can convey an experience of real life relationships, acting as briefed. It makes the work even more real. Afterwards, he provides to the point feedback that is well appreciated by the participants.
We wanted to get in touch and let you know that the team won Lot 3 (the ‘big’ one!) from the tender.
This is a huge achievement. We have heard through the grapevine that it is thought that the team’s performance on the behavioural assessment element was crucial to the overall win. Several of those on the team that we coached, and others who were a core part of the process, have approached us to thank us for all the support and coaching going in to the assessment.
So, thank you once again for your contribution to the preparation of a winning team! Deborah, Rebecca and I agree that it has been a highlight for us to work with a group of such talented, dedicated, and just simply good people – and that includes professionals such as yourself who brought your careful attention, expert knowledge and enthusiasm to the table.
I have had the pleasure of contracting AII many times to deliver facilitated role plays and theatre scenarios for populations ranging from interns and graduates to very senior leaders - with topics including delegation, disability, diversity, personal impact, effective influencing, sales and managing challenge. They provide consistently excellent actors who as well as being great performers, are highly skilled at coaching and facilitation, are always able to speak the language of the client, are always reliable, flexible and fun to work with. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They always add great value to any programme and are always mentioned in the delegate feedback as the favourite and most effective part of any course. Keep up the good work!
Please would you pass on my thanks to the actors who helped us with IPSC1 last week. They all did a great job and the feedback from the attendees has been excellent
Just wanted to let you know that Thom Mitchell and Kate Kordel were excellent today with our client Criteo in London. The participants really enjoyed working with them, both as actors and also in the very practical and useful feedback they gave. We are aiming to run this program again in April and I would like to use them again. I will be in touch!
We have just wrapped with Rina, she was EXCELLENT! I really recommend her for future work with us.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for today. Lorraine and Sakuntala did an excellent job! I don’t know where they get their energy from! I don’t have their emails so please can you pass on my thanks and gratitude to them!
A few observers were unwell and the actors stepped up and helped us more than usual – and as usual, did a fantastic job.
Thank you again for all your help today with the new course. You both were fantastic at assimilating the participants' situations, playing the required parts and offering very useful guidance and feedback.
It went really well thank you and the Actors sessions received great feedback, as always :-)
Thank you for checking, the actors went down very well. The role play activity was noted as one of the most useful parts of the day in the feedback forms. I’ll be having the formal debrief with the client over the next couple of weeks but from the participant perspective the actors were well received, positive comments were made about their wealth of experience and the value of the feedback that was provided.
I was very fortunate when your friend and competitor recommended you. I wanted to write and thank you for all the patience Julia and Trevor showed and the fact they listened to my points. For the fabulous people who Julia sourced to work with us and their commitment to getting it right and yet not heavy at all. I have no doubt I will be back to you again soon! It was a real and rare privilege to work with true professionals.
I have just returned from the programme having observed the Dangerous Opportunities. The actors were great –both Jess and James and the participants were very engaged in the stories - you and your team of wonderful actors can be well satisfied with your work!
The course went really well. Thank you for coming to the rescue and thank you too to all 4 actors who did another great job
I’ve just heard from Jane this morning regarding the event yesterday and the feedback was fantastic! Please pass on my huge thanks and gratitude to Jess and Roger for doing such a sterling job. Thank you so much again for all of your help too.
Your actors were awesome. Added such value to our event thank you.
.....pleasure to work with you guys as ever. Feedback from participants and observers on the actors was really good
Surely there must be a niche for a company called 'MDs R Us' where you would go into companies and run them in the MD's absence
Yesterday's training session was excellent and enjoyable
Thank you for creating and delivering such a wonderful program for our employees, they are still talking about it
The actors have added real value in adapting to each delegates needs on the day
Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect.
The actors were excellent at the workshop last week. She said they came across as very credible, they varied their style according to the brief and also according to how the participant handled them, they gave useful feedback and were very nice to be around!
As usual, the participants really valued your contributions, especially the one to one coaching sessions
I just received an email from one of the Territory Managers that it was the best sales training he has ever received.
I actually found the team you sent to be excellent (something that one of the other facilitators also commented on).
