Arttis Academy is a concept that was born in London a few years ago, emerging from the experience of its founders with the multiculturality of the British culture.
The fusion of values and traditions that Roxana and Nicholas had as part of their heritage together with the multiculturality of the British culture, united with the most inspiring ideas of the greatest international minds, has created a revolutionary learning concept focusing on a new way of seeing life and understanding things.
This idea evolved whilst the founders worked in various environments to the point they felt the need to bring it to Romania, thus creating a cultural bridge between London and Bucharest, bringing British artists, international speakers and professionals to Bucharest.
Arttis Academy is learning continuous learning which doesn’t stop once you finish a university. Learning evolves and takes on different forms throughout a person’s life.
The Academy’s mission is to open the path to self-development and personal evolution for an extra-ordinary life through revolutionary training programs and workshops which are so much more than acting and music courses, public speaking and corporate training presenting a unique way of understanding life.
For too long personal development has been perceived as a daunting and boring task. The Academy’s programs create a relaxing atmosphere and has the so called ’growth mindset’ at its core.
Designed to bring to life all of our hidden capacities, the programs are aimed at all those who seek a new way of thinking, one that is based on values and on a creative approach to life.
The research made by Harvard University, Carnegie Foundation and Stanford Research Centre has led to the conclusion that 85% of those who are successful at their job have developed people skills and soft skills (creativity, time management, motivation, self-confidence) and only 15% of those successful at their job have developed technical skills and knowledge.
Whether you work in a corporation, are a freelancer or work in any other field, Arttis Academy’s personal development courses offer you a space in which you can express who you are without being judged and where you can reinvent yourself with the help of music and acting games.
Benjamin Franklin said that ’an investment in knowledge always pays the best interest’. A good team is everything and, with it, a company evolves and moves forward. In the field of Corporate Training, the Academy’s Programs are specially designed for the development of each team member and focuses on higher productivity, employee engagement, stress-reduction, creativity, better team dynamic, mental flexibility and adaptability, providing employees with a sense of being valued.
In a recent 2017 Dale Carnegie study, the companies where employees feel valued have a higher performance, by up to 202%, in comparison with companies where employees don’t feel valued. To coach your employees and to give them career growth opportunities is a sure way to make them feel appreciated inside the company.
Arttis Academy’s most popular Corporate Training Programs include ‘Creative problem solving and play’, ‘Acting techniques applied in Business’, ’Public speaking’, ‘Understand body language’, ‘How perfectionism is holding you back’, ’Becoming indistractable’ and many more.
Team Building is very popular among our corporate clients. And because of that, we work closely with managers and CEO’s of companies in their desire to give their team a break from the routine or, as we like to call it, ’a corporate pick me up’. The Academy’s trainers are skilled actors and musicians with a vast experience in the corporate world, having inside knowledge of this particular work environment, creating a personalised programme specially designed for the personality of your organisation, focusing on individual progress, positive communication, dealing with change, problem solving and productive team work.
