Developed in 2008, the Mackenzie Method training has been delivered to advertising agencies including Mr. President, Movement London, Tug Agency, Campbell Bell Communications, organisations such as D&AD New Blood, Creative Equals and individuals ranging from the CEO of an investment bank to copywriters.
Built on performance practice and business experience, the Mackenzie Method is a unique approach to communication and creativity. Fun and pacy, the training gets you doing in order to learn new skills.
Aliveness: There is so much more in us than we access day to day. The Mackenzie Method helps people discover greater availability vocally, physically and imaginatively. Acting and improvisation techniques are used to help you become present and unlock 'aliveness'. This enables you to be more imaginative, dynamic and open as a person.
Practical tools: The Mackenzie Method introduces no-nonsense tools to build skills. These are tried and tested techniques that you can use again and again. The teaching approach combines individual coaching (guidance and specific exercises in response to each person's needs) with positive feedback in order to build confidence and a critical awareness of what works.
