Her titles have included lecturer, researcher, stage director, learning designer, writer and performer. Through her PhD, she investigated directorial and design strategies for working with non-actors, winning the Phillip Parson’s Prize in 2015.
Underpinning all her work is the desire to initiate lasting positive change through collaborative, creative and immersive experiences. Natasha plans to achieve just that in her work with leaders, teams and organisations in increasingly virtual learning environments.
