Julian Hirst 2018

Julian Hirst

Julian is a former associate of ICL Learning, The Cable & Wireless College and Peritas plc, where he gained a wide experience of effective communication skills and became a firm believer in the efficacy of drama based learning solutions. This resulted in his founding CentreStage Partnership in 2001.

He spent many years in hotel, catering and institutional management both in the UK and Switzerland prior to becoming a professional actor/entertainer in 1985. Since then he has appeared at theatres and worked as a presenter and entertainer at corporate and private events world-wide.

Julian has designed and facilitated a number of drama based workshops for all levels in various organisations throughout the UK, particularly around Customer Service, Diversity and Inclusion, Performance Review and Behavioural Safety.

Drawing on over 30 years of theatre experience Julian takes techniques from the stage to help individuals develop a more confident and dynamic communication style in both meetings and presentations.

Julian is experienced in every aspect of small scale video production from hiring crew and cast, editing the script, directing the action and the editing process. In other words, translating the written screenplay and learning objectives into images on the screen.


Julian is engaging, flexible and great fun to work with – I always look forward to working with him as I know he will be highly professional and full of energy for the project. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
