The benefits of using professional role-play actors for your training.

Using Professional Role-Play actors for Training

Organizations all over the globe have been benefitting from working with professional role-play actors to help them develop their teams.

Silvercube role-play and training was established in 2015 and has been helping companies to achieve greater results from their staff training for over seventeen years.

But what is it that a professional role-play actor brings to the training room?

In this blog post we outline some of the many ways in which role-play actors can add value to your training and development programmes.


Professional role play actors are able to portray the emotions that may arise during a challenging work situation. They will be able to remain in character and convey the emotions of that character in a realistic way, whilst maintaining the focus of the role-play. Delegates can concentrate entirely on their own input and the outcome of the conversation.


Playing opposite a confident actor will help the delegates to feel comfortable in the role-play. When delegates role-play with each other it can easily lead to embarrassment and focus can be lost.

Getting to the Heart of the Subject:

Delegates are encouraged to tackle the issues they face on a day-to-day basis. Role-play actors can give guidance on how clearly the message landed.


Actors are fantastic at improvising and staying in the moment. They will be able to create realistic and thought-provoking reactions for the delegate to respond to and for other delegates to consider and learn from.


Feedback plays a massive part in this type of training. Professional role-play actors will be experienced in giving objective feedback. This is often both emotional and technical. They can discuss how their character felt at key-moments in the conversation whilst also discussing specific techniques which were deployed during the role play. Such detailed feedback will have a monumental effect on the professional development of the delegates.


Whilst some delegates will be anxious to participate in role-play they are highly likely to leave the session feeling motivated and empowered. This type of investment in your employees can make them feel valued and recognised.
