VP, Export Sales & Marketing | Scholastic
Every training has been highly engaging and memorable–reps still talk about concepts that Debra taught them years ago, probably because they got to practice them in a safe environment where mistakes are always turned into teachable moments. In addition, Debra has consistently demonstrated an ability to adapt to the needs of the team to be trained, customizing materials and actively learning about the business in advance of the training.
Learning & Development Manager Distribution | Argos
I’ve used actors in the past and have had reservations about just how effective some of the interventions have been. I have to say I had none of those reservations with the guys from DTS. They were fabulous! What I think really worked was the idea of getting delegates to express their emotions before they even realised they were in a learning situation, which created real and genuine situations for people to learn from.
Senior Learning Specialist, Management & Leadership Capability | Santander
Debra and her team provided a powerful and compelling element to our leadership programme using professional actors/ facilitators who were able to fully immerse learners in challenging and stimulating scenarios instantly and completely.
Their ability to do this and then facilitate the learning was essential to the success of this programme, and I would fully recommend Debra and her organisation to anyone wishing to achieve likewise.
Co-founder | The Learning Space
We found DTS to be very professional, responsive, organised an a pleasure to work with. The actors were very well received by the participants and programme was a huge success; winning the ‘People Development Programme of the Year’ award with the LPI. I can happily recommend Debra to you if you are looking for actors to support your development programmes.
Head of School Partnerships | Frog Education
I have attended a BTEC Sales course delivered by Debra and her team. The quality of the training was the best I have ever experienced, and really changed the way in which I worked. Working with the actors helped to bring everything to life in a controlled yet challenging manner. My sales improved afterwards, and I’ve since had two promotions. I would highly recommend Debra – anytime

Associate Director Warehousing South | Coca-Cola European Partners
Debra’s natural warmth won over my team very quickly and she has a great instinct for pace, so she allowed enough time for everyone to make a considered contribution, but also moved things along when it was needed. Thanks to Debra’s involvement everyone believes in our new purpose, behaviours and goals and I am confident we will be a more successful team now. If you can afford an external facilitator I strongly recommend you to talk to Debra about how she could help
Product Marketing Director | Pearson
Debra and her team are warm and approachable, phenomenally knowledgeable about our business and our market (which makes the role-playing elements of the training so meaningful), and manage to walk that difficult line between being powerpoint-free and high energy whilst never cheesy or forced.
Managing Director | Acai Activewear Ltd
I have been lucky enough to attend a few of Dramatic Training Solutions courses now. Every course/session has been extremely well facilitated, interactive and engaging all the way through. Light hearted and fun, the sessions are involving and I have used many of these valuable lessons in my own business and cannot speak highly enough of the way DTS work.
Entrepreneurial Enabler | Entrepreneurial Spark
Training that sticks – Training that is applied – Training that is actionable, Training that is experiential. DTS deliver this. I must say I was slightly sceptical at first to utilise actors in professional training. However, the experience, expertise and most of all the actionable tips and execution make this method of training a must.
SVP Sales Learning & Development, North American Higher Education | Pearson
Debra and her team have worked extensively with my team designing, refining and delivering sales and coaching training. Among the high value Debra’s group brings to the table is the ability to understand the customer and selling situation in all its richness and use their acting skills to bring those situations to life in a way that challenges those being trained.
Founder | Future Pharmacy
I’ve attended a few of DTS’s training events. They worked with me to improve my sales and negotiating skills. What really impressed me with the training was how dynamic the training team were. Debra and her acting team were able to bring workplace situations to life, making the whole experience much more rewarding.
