Actors teaching Bankers

Today and tomorrow I will get to role-play as a Scotiabank investment client with financial advisors who want to practice their conversation skills.  I do this with Focus Management Group, a company started by Peter Gardner-Harding in Toronto and now works all over North America.  I’m really grateful for this work because it creates an awareness for both professions of the teaching potential that conversations can have if we are open to learning from them.  It is also wonderfully affirming of my belief in the power of applied theatre for illuminating our world.

From theses sessions, the actors have often walked away with a bit more knowledge about financial management and bankers appreciate the gift of the actor’s contribution to their learning in a new way than conventionally done on tv, film or stage.
