We’re having a valuable week. Training police investigators. Getting people to try new things in an arena they can happily learn from any mistakes in is a task in itself: people don’t want to make mistakes, they naturally want to get it right first time. When they let go of that inhibition though, we see all sorts of great learning coming out and it’s our pleasure to help in that. As an acting exercise and a training exercise it’s immersive and beats many old fashioned methods hands down.

Some old sayings will always be true and we’d like to paraphrase one now: “You can read the manual, watch the video, attend the seminar, write an essay – but you’ll never learn to ride the bike until you actually climb on the thing”.

I think that’s an old saying. It is now!
