    Additional Skills

    Not bad at drawing and watercolour painting. Doggedly learning Italian, but those pesky pronouns don't come easily. Very experienced as a writer of training and marketing material, including scripts for video and live theatre-based management training (sounds so dull - it's a hoot, I promise). Also highly experienced in performing forum theatre and roleplays, and designing and facilitating workshops for businesspeople and drama students in personal impact, voice, improvisation, presenting with confidence, creativity, negotiating and influencing skills, teamwork, managing conflict, running meetings etc. Also a 1-1 coach for drama students and businesspeople.

    Additional Information

    18 years experience in the corporate world, mainly as an actor; running my own corporate consultancy, Play4Real, since 2005 (www.play4real.co.uk) taking theatre techniques into business as a way of building skills and confidence in all walks of working life. Also a scriptwriter of training and marketing videos in the 1980s and 90s - and more recently, of corporate animations for Cognitive (www.cognitivemedia.com)

    About me

    Just played HM Queen Elizabeth II in a Radio 4 play, which one found rurly rather fun. Love to keep my skills honed with student and indie short films, as well as live rehearsed readings of new short stories (go to www.linsagovsky.com for video examples of those). Lots of ongoing corporate forum theatre and role-plays as various Nightmare Managers in Amersterdam, Zurich, Pinewood Studios. Keen member of my Equity Branch. In between things, totally adoring classes in watercolour painting and life drawing.
