Clients & Testimonials

NG Bailey –I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of RPFT. We have been working together for the past 7 / 8 years on various projects and I brought RPFT with me when I moved organisations. I have been delighted with the service and results we have achieved – increase in engagement in our training and clear ROI on our investment. We get so much positive feedback from the sessions RPFT are involved in delivering and it has revolutionised our approach to role play. Katerina’s solutions-based approach to issues or problems is second to none.” Becky West – Learning and Development Partner at NG Bailey

byrne-dean “RPfT are our go-to people for professional, reliable role players, both for our live drama-based training and recorded clips. Fergus is responsive, adaptable and and nothing’s too much trouble.  It’s great when our clients compliment the RPfT actors for their consistently high quality performances. “ Alison Best, Head of Purpose, Design and Innovation, byrne-dean

Jones Bros – “The ability to communicate in our business is very important particularly when delivering messages about health and safety to groups of people. This method of training was a completely new experience for our works managers and, although I was confident of the benefits it would bring, the delegates attending were a little apprehensive of this new training approach. RPfT’s course designers and facilitators were extremely skilled in understanding our requirements and designed and delivered a training day to raise self-awareness of how communication styles can impact the effectiveness of the message being delivered. Many practical tips and structures were shared equipping the managers with a toolkit to approach difficult conversations. We are now looking forward to developing a program of communication training and working with RPfT to deliver sessions to the rest of the business.” Ruth James, Director, Jones Bros

NESTLE – At Nestle the role players improvise content around a given brief.  “I really appreciate the work done by Fergus and Suzie during the last few days. Their desire to make the scenario true to life, the excellent suggestions and openness / ease to work with made for an enjoyable and beneficial time together. The production team also commented on the level of professionalism and how impressed they were with the whole process.”  Jeremy Ferguson Smith, Nestle Learning & Development

Hodge– “RPFT’s approach to training is very refreshing, as it’s very different to traditional training.  They ensure that the content is personalised to us rather than being generic. RPfT took the time to really understand how Hodge works as a business, the types of customers, products and what our overall aims are.”
