Welcome to Guildhall Ignite, Executive and Professional Performance.


The world is a stage.


So, for leaders, teams and global businesses, performance matters.

At Guildhall Ignite, we enable performance by coaching in and through the performing arts. This is where accredited business and executive coaching meets the leading standard in performance arts training.

We are the executive and professional training consultancy of Guildhall School of Music & Drama, a global leader in creative and professional performance located in the heart of the City of London.

We’ve trained successful performers including Daniel Craig, Jodie Whittaker, Paapa Essiedu, Lily James, Roderick Williams and Bryn Terfel to own their stage.

Now let’s train you to own yours.

Welcome to Guildhall Ignite.
