Based on my own experience of overcoming speech challenges as a child, I feel there is no limit to a person’s potential as a powerful, skilled and accomplished communicator if they’re willing to commit themselves to self-expression and connecting with those around them. In Praesentia Training, I bring together acting technique and the latest learning methodologies - including sequencing, online learning and self-instruction - to give my clients the tools to build their confidence and skill long into the future.

‘Learning from Theo was a life-changing experience. He makes you feel so relaxed, creating a very easy environment to learn in. I now feel I have more authority and integrity in every social and professional situation.'
Edwin Abl - Chief Marketing Officer, Hive Learning
Theo continues to provide evolving solutions to my public speaking challenges. So far he’s helped me to confidently engage large audiences of business leaders as well as high-value meetings within my own organisation. As well as introducing him to colleagues and their teams, I continue to mine Theo for ever more valuable insights!
Laura Paplauskaite - Founder & Managing Director, Bit Zesty Ltd.
I would recommend Theo to anyone who needs to hone their public speaking or general communication skills. Theo is brilliant at putting me at ease - working with him is always fun. I no longer avoid presentations or dread pitches - in fact, I view them as an opportunity to practice my (newly acquired) skills.
I have been teaching since 2006 across Yorkshire and Staffordshire, to a variety of age groups and abilities and in a variety of settings; from community groups to sixth-form colleges. Now I have returned to my roots in Doncaster, where I began performing at the age of 7 years and founded DN4 Dance & Theatre in 2019. In addition to a BA Hons in Dance and PGCE (PCET), I have a background in Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Musical Theatre and is a registered teacher with BBOdance (British Ballet Organisation). When I'm not teaching, I work closely with local Theatre groups and on a professional basis, acting, singing and providing choreography for events/productions. Over my experience in working in FE, I have successfully supported many of my students in their application process to Higher Education and Drama school; selecting and rehearsing monologues for audition and preparing UCAS application. Some of my former students are currently studying at ALRA and UCLAN and I have also successfully helped students gain entry to Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge.
While my recent formal experience has been with FE students and above, I have taught students from the age of 5 through to university level on a wide range of topics. Areas of study include; Physical Theatre (from Dance-based to Commedia dell'Arte), Shakespeare, Contemporary Theatre, Prose.
A general lesson will include a short warm-up (either skills or focus based) prior to the main content; breaking down a script/choreography, rehearsal, feedback and discussion based on learning taken place and next steps. I try to make lessons as practical as I can, dependent on the material that we are working with and the end result required.
