Tools for strategy and innovation.

Developing the live capability of your people, for collaborating, communicating and creating.

At InPlay Arts, we specialise in the use of theatre and design practices for business improvement and capability building.  We guide strategy and innovation and equip teams and organisations for delivering on it – collaborating, communicating and creating.   With experience of over 25 years in business and design consultancy, and 20 years in performing arts practice and management, we bring the expertise of each to both.

Through our centrepiece, Working Live, we create bespoke programs to develop teams, individuals and organisations in tools for collaborating, communicating and creating.  From engaging with story, to collaborating, adapting and working in the moment – we can raise your organisation’s capability for dropping the script and working live.

We also provide executive facilitation services and work directly with business situations, consulting in strategy, innovation and organisational development.

Working Live was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and it made me reflect on how I might be able to better collaborate, communicate and create. This is a crucial part of the work that I do, and I've managed to start putting in place small hacks that will benefit how I facilitate innovation and creativity in our clients."

Tony Weir of InPlay is one of a kind. I have worked with Tony on some hugely complex projects and his ability to craft brilliant clarity and simplicity is second to none. But that is merely one of his talents. I have also seen him draw out presence and poise from the most reluctant. Check him out.
