Hello! Hope you've had a great bank holiday.
I'm not sure where the last few weeks have gone, but I've been working all over the country: Northern Film School, UAL, Lavender Pictures and I recently facilitated the Creative Skillset High End TV Drama Trainee Finder induction weekend for the cohort of 80 industry trainees.
This site is being overhauled at the moment, so a spangly new look site is on its way....
In the meantime my most current course is in London on 25th April, so if you want to learn how to use Movie Magic Scheduling, do have a look here.
"Addie could not have been any better! She was energetic, inspiring and throughout the entirety of the course there was not a moment within the day that her energy lapsed - this constantly kept a good flow of energy and concentration throughout the room. She always knew the appropriate time to take a break, to let the information sink in and had such experience in the field that every story she spoke, we felt as if we would know how to act if we ourselves were put into that situation."

"Addie is the most amazing trainer. She has written and run numerous courses for us over the past 2 years and not only have they been extremely successful, the feedback from ALL of the trainees has been awesome! She engages with the trainees like no other trainer I have dealt with before. She always seems to get them to be the best they can be and that is down to her patience and teaching style. I would not hesitate to recommend her, as far as I am concerned she is one of the best there is."
Natalie Brady, Training and Office Accounts Manager, Alias.
"Addie is an excellent trainer! She made the session personable for all attendees from them entering the room and her expertise and passion shone throughout. Her background and industry experience is invaluable and showed when she answered questions. Staff from both sessions said they enjoyed them and felt very comfortable with understanding what Diamond (Diversity initiative in TV) is and how it works. "
Ravinder Crone, Project Manager, SKY
" Fantastic course, really relevant, really interesting - learning in the morning and then having a hands on with the actual software is brilliant. I now know how to schedule on Movie Magic."
" Addie's half day course was informative and educational in a relaxed setting created by Addie and her unique ability to break the ice with people while remaining professional and authoritative on a subject. I can think of no person better qualified to teach. If you own, manage or run a business or organisation then at some point you are going to require Equality or Diversity Training- this is your last stop right here- Addie has it covered!
Thank you for a fantastic course and we look forward to working with you again soon."
