About training and development

The academy is rapidly expanding in the world of business and continues to provide verbal communication, confidence, and self-development training to adults in the workplace in a fun, fresh and unique way. Our objective is to develop people for the future by helping companies build enthusiastic, efficient, and effective workforces through a variety of drama techniques.


“At South City Hospital, we have been working closely with the Drama Academy on the corporate programme which is a benefit to both professional and personal lives. The CEO is thrilled with the results and is keen to continue the programme until all her 500 members of staff have had a chance to work with the Helen O’Grady team.”

“I’m so glad I approached the Drama Kids team for help with developing my vocal projection and public speaking. The team made me feel so at ease in my first consultation and were really keen to make sure they fully understood what I needed and why.”
