Communications Coaching, People Development and Innovative Drama Based Training

You or your business could be the best story yet to be told (or if you’re like most of us, just a really good page turner).
However any story only has meaning when it is heard, experienced and lived.
So at [non]fiction PEOPLE we help you understand who the main characters are, why your story matters, what form it takes, where you tell it and most importantly how you communicate it.


We’re obsessed with the psychology of communication. Over 20 years of practice, learning and leading in both the arts and business, has taught us how a single breath, a blink of an eye and a well chosen question can transform a relationship.
You’re the expert in you and your story and we’re the experts in helping you tell it.


You may need us to help you with a one-off blockbuster or work together in constructing a long running franchise, developing your superheroes. In either case our focus is on helping you develop one or all of your content, structure and delivery.

Executive Communications Coaching

We work one-one with senior individuals and by leading, facilitating and training teams.
How and what we deliver is designed uniquely to meet your challenge but we have worked with clients developing the following skills:

  • Public Speaking
  • Communicating at Senior Level
  • Gravitas & Impact
  • Pitch Preparation
  • Relationship & Rapport Building
  • Networking
  • Storytelling
  • Interview/Panel Preparation


An external voice in a meeting can be extraordinarily powerful. Objectivity, perceptivity and technique combined in facilitation can make a huge difference to outcomes.

We come from both creative and business backgrounds and helping you diverge your creative thinking before converging toward the most innovative and achievable idea is our bread and butter and vital in ensuring you find the best solution.

  • Board Meetings
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Idea Generation


Giving you and your teams the opportunity to practise the skills they need to execute at the highest level, win business and deliver that bit better than your competitors can make all the difference. We can help you devise scenarios or work with you or your partners to provide expert business actors, presenting the highest quality realistic challenge, combined with insightful and honest feedback. We can work with either a developmental or assessment focus or combine the two.

  • Giving Feedback
  • Difficult Conversations
  • Culture Change
  • Client Meetings


Where were you when…? It matters. 
Is it better to have a meeting, a coffee or a walk?
We understand there are many factors influencing where a communication takes place, but in most cases it’s determined by convenience and habit and not always by desired outcome and experience.
We have worked with clients in their offices of course, but also in theatres, members clubs, car-parks and fields. We have worked in person, on webcams, mobile phones and with video content.

We will encourage you to think about where a communication takes place and the possibility in what it means to experience learning in an environment which supports it.
The stage is set.


At the core of what we do is practice. Experiential learning is proven to outshine any other form when it comes to communication.
Yes we will explore communication theory, it can change your life, but the means to embody and practice making those marginal gains can reprogramme your defaults in lasting and profound ways.

Your story, plot and ending is unique and so is the way we work with you. We will design each project to help you overcome the obstacles your characters face and ensure there is always a memorable plot twist to keep the listener intrigued.

We can deliver alone, work alongside your own team, engage a range of incredible Associate Business Psychologists as well as collaborate with our partners [non]fiction EVENTS, [non]fiction SPACES and [non]fiction ARTS to construct innovative and extraordinary learning events and away days.
