Project Description


Eleanor Handley

Eleanor has worked with byrne•dean since 2013, initially as the lead actor in a number of our drama based sessions. Originally from Melbourne, she has over fifteen years experience in management and corporate training throughout Australia, the UK and North America. Now based in New York, she works as a communication and body language coach, leading training programs for individuals and groups throughout the legal, finance, pharmaceutical, tech, design and academic sectors. Drawing on theory and techniques from her extensive vocal and performance training (both in Australia and the USA), she has refined a reliable, practical approach for targeting unhelpful mindsets and habits. She provides clients with simple, concrete tools they can use every day to improve their impact and effectiveness. Eleanor also specialises in dialect training and accent modification, and has built a career as a performer on stages and screens throughout North America, including most recently at Lincoln Center in NYC.
