Non-Executive Board Member, Facilitator, Course Designer
Phyllis began her association with Performance Role Play Training as a co-facilitator with Judy Ditchfield for Vodacom. This work developed into great synergy and a powerful working team, which was then incorporated into programmes for PRPT. The foundation of Phyllis’ work is developing and growing people which is strongly aligned to the values of PRPT. As our association developed, Phyllis was a perfect fit to come in and develop and grow Performance Role Play Training, and was asked to become a Non-Executive Board Member and Shareholder. Her work with PRPT continues to be driving Strategy and being a core contributor to strengthening our vision and direction. She is also a strong contributor to course development.
