About Us

Deliberately different, RoleplayUK take great pride in our LIVE approach to learning, assessment and development. We bring together the individual expertise of professional actors, creative trainers and facilitators, backed by outstanding service to help organisations change the way their teams think, work and behave.

Our journey

Firm believers in the future rather than the past, here’s just a potted history of where we’ve come from, to help you understand how we’ve gained the trust of thousands of clients to date.

From a handful of actors, with a vision to enhance experiential learning opportunities, RoleplayUK first focussed on the needs of the financial services industry. From those early days, back in 1994, we have grown from strength to strength, with a great deal of our new business coming from personal recommendations.

Today we’re very proud to be a leading provider of drama-led training, development and assessment to a wide cross section of sectors and businesses.

The people making it happen

Jacqui Adams

Marketing and Projects

Jacqui Adams

Marketing and Projects

With a background in marketing and a predisposition to plan and organise, Jacqui is very well placed to co-ordinate RPUK’s marketing activity and wide range of projects, as well support Lindsey with operations. Free time is largely dedicated to keeping fit, exploring new places, dining with friends and the odd G&T … but not always in that order!

James Larter

Managing Director

James Larter

Managing Director

Jim has been leading RoleplayUK since 2002.  A firm believer in that you’re only as good as your last job, this philosophy drives the business to deliver beyond expectations time after time. Jim takes great pride in the fact that clients keep coming back to us year on year.  As a father of two sporty boys, a lot of time is spent on the rugby and football touchlines around the Midlands.  Jim enjoys cycling which was capped of a couple of years ago cycling from John O’Groats to Land’s End in 9 days – he is still looking for his next challenge.

Lindsey Adams

Operations Manager

Lindsey Adams

Operations Manager

Efficient, friendly and passionate about doing everything she possibly can to support clients and associates alike, Lindsey thrives on managing the busy RPUK operations desk. Away from work, you need to look up to the skies to find her; as a seasoned balloonist, there’s nothing she loves more than skimming the tree tops on a sunny evening… well maybe her cat Lilly!

Michael Hobbs

Senior Associate

Michael Hobbs

Senior Associate

An actor, academic and former BBC Presenter, Michael enjoys bringing out the best in people through enhancing their skills to lead, present, coach and communicate. When his head isn't in a book, you can find him on the west-end stage, eating a pizza or running the Thames tow-path.

Tim Scragg

Senior Associate

Tim Scragg

Senior Associate

Tim is a highly experienced trainer and coach; having devoted over 20 years of his career to Learning and Development, he's been a valuable asset to the RPUK team since the late 1990s. Tim specialises in Leadership and Management and Communication Skills courses, and like all our associates has a background as a professional actor. As a wildlife enthusiast, Tim has travelled all over the world in search of obscure creatures; he now lives with his family in the rather more tranquil setting of rural Buckinghamshire.

Andrew Blair

Creative Director

Andrew Blair

Creative Director

Andy is a genius at interpreting our clients’ learning objectives and transforming them into powerful and engaging training programmes. London West End, to Mumbai and Delhi, Andy has appeared, directed and written for British theatre before transferring his passion, energy and focus to developing individuals and supporting the organisations they work for.   He’s also a highly accomplished guitarist and is very content to spend time with his Lowden F25 … usually tuned to DADGAD. Don’t even ask!
