Testimonials for Paul's teaching:
'We have commissioned Paul to design, plan and deliver engaging drama workshops to groups of international students over two intensive work periods. It is unusual to find someone with both the high level of organisation and exceptional creativity, but Paul is one of those rare finds. We have every confidence in his abilities to run consistently high quality drama programmes, and to represent our organisation professionally. We are already planning for next summer, and Paul is absolutely our number one choice of facilitator to deliver our drama programme.'
Adam Amer, Company Director, Chango Lingo (September 2019)
'Paul is dynamic, passionate, hardworking and focused. He has a fantastic range as a performer both in character roles, movement and singing. We have been booked for performances which involved workshops afterwards with young children and their families. In this context Paul is engaging, confident and inspiring.'
Gill Simmons, Artistic Director, Brave Bold Drama (January 2018)
'Paul is a committed theatre artist, and has great sensitivity to performance creation and delivery. He has coached our LAMDA pupils for their solo exams and they have not only gained strong marks (all Merits and Distinctions) but they have also enjoyed the process of working with him. He is firm but gentle, clear and consistent, knowing when to adapt to suit his pupil or audience. I highly recommend working with Paul.'
Heidi Hollis, Principal, Stagecoach Bristol South West, Portishead (September 2016)
'Paul is warm, welcoming, cheerful, and people felt comfortable talking to him. When he listens to people he is focused, patient and genuine . . . We felt that the group was extremely well run. People have choice and control over what happens. It is calm and fun. People learn to take part in the group, concentrate, focus and be confident.'
