This is the first such partnership that we have entered into in the 71 years of Brathay's existence
Case study - Uniper and reenactment
In 2017, Uniper, already a client of Brathay, attended the b.SAFE@Brathay free ‘Change the Conversation, Change the Culture’ safety culture seminar at Brathay.
As a result of this, Uniper approached Beehive to design and deliver a re-enactment event based on the b.SAFE D2iT Trust-based Safety Culture model for their annual plant manager conference in Dusseldorf in January this year. Beehive wrote the script for the drama, rehearsed the actors, and delivered a high impact, engaging event that was very well received and has led to increased awareness and change in the organisation.
The success of the Dusseldorf conference led to the workshop re-enactment being rolled out further within the organisation, with plans for a senior manager event in Dusseldorf in September, multiple events in France, and for events in the nuclear sector in Sweden in the new year.
Plans to deliver an engagement event to address the challenges of lone working are also in progress. “Drama is a great way of engaging people and raising significant questions, allowing them to empathise with the people on stage and raising the question ‘what would I do?’ in the audience”, says Beehive director Sara Lodge.
Fellow director Mark Sykes adds, “using forum theatre allows the audience to get involved and rehearse new, better behaviours.”
