I trained at the Oxford School of Drama from 2002 to 2005. As a professional actor, I've appeared in major TV, Film and Theatre productions in the UK, the US and Canada. My work on Supernatural, Psych and A Christmas Prince 1 & 2 can currently be viewed on Netflix. Prior to appearing on TV and Film, I spent 8 years working regularly in UK Theatre.
I have extensive experience working in corporate training and facilitation. In 2015 I joined a leading London-based communication skills company, departing to work independently in 2016. He has since conducted over 1000 hours of one-to-one and group communication training.

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.
