Other than providing venue and educational services for the performing arts, klpac also provides corporate services.

It is a common misperception that arts training is only for artists.

Today’s business world prizes innovation, creativity and adaptability – qualities necessary to thrive in a highly competitive and ever-changing environment.

Industry pioneers Dato’ Faridah Merican and Joe Hasham OAM have been specialising in arts-based corporate training for almost three decades, serving clients ranging from those in the telecommunications industry to advertising and other service sectors. In 2005 The Actors Studio Academy @ klpac  adopted the methods set by co-founders Joe and Faridah.

While the actual programme can be customised according to group size, duration and objective, some of our training modules include:

  • Team building
  • Presentation and body language skills
  • Change management
  • Creativity and thinking out of the box

Some of the reasons our clients have engaged us over conventional trainers is because arts-based training helps to:

  • Break down the silo effect of corporations
  • Develop trust and rapport
  • Shift perceptions, attitudes and mindsets
  • Facilitate conversations about workplace problems and challenges

If you would like us to customise a training module for you, please drop us an email at deda@klpac.org or ian@klpac.org.

One of our greatest passions is storytelling.

Over the years, our multi-talented team has created a solid body of original, award-winning works from musical biopics like ISMAIL The Last Days to works that highlight our heritage like the Hokkien play Big Head and Potato Head and Broken Bridges The Musical, a tribute to Ipoh and the olden days.

An example of a commissioned project was ADAM The Musical. We were tasked by the Malaysian AIDS Foundation to create a piece of work to raise awareness on the AIDS epidemic and people living with HIV.

If you would like to explore engaging our team to help you tell a compelling story for either a commercial or non-commercial purpose, please drop an e-mail to faridah@klpac.org and yuemay@klpac.org.
