Our customised bogus speakers are fun, relevant and strangely insightful.

So how does it work? You provide us with your conference focus. For example:

  • Celebrating Success
  • Working Smarter
  • Cultural Change
  • Working Together
  • Risk Management.

Sound familiar? You then provide us with your company specific content, personalities and issues. (Anything you are happy to tell us, we are happy to use!).

We customise the performance and choose the expert characters to suit your situation. Our character teams present either upfront or undercover, but always as experts in the field!

Murder Mystery Dinners

Our unique murder mystery dinners unfold during an evening of fine dining. Guests are given their characters up to ten days before the event and must come prepared to play their part (no stage acting required) during the evening. Our actors lead you through the events and guests are tasked with trying to solve the mystery and avoid being murdered themselves! We have a variety of themes available.
