Meet the Team

Best mates Rose Flanagan and Amy Robinson have been creating characters and voices that crack each other up for the last 15 years. In 2019 their destiny as business partners became clear after a night at the ballet where screen and stage actor Rose opened up to advertising wiz Amy about an idea she had been working on to serve the pressing desire for a modern, actor-oriented style of training.

Rose was a shy kid who was put into speech and drama classes at an early age to help with her lisp and her confidence. She found comfort and community in strengthening her performance skills and soon she was out of her shell and acting at every opportunity. Rose’s talents extend across acting for screen and stage, writing, directing, producing and coaching. She has a handy Sociology degree under her belt, is currently on the board at Bitten By Productions and also hosts the interview-based podcast for actors, Get Your Act Together!

 

After chats with a number of fellow actors and drawing on her own experience, Rose recognised that a kind of effective, flexible and modern training actors desire was simply not on offer. Not content to wait around, Rose decided to do it herself, charming her actor mates into attending the prototype SceneWorkout sessions out of her spare room before expanding to the beautiful Collingwood space.

 

Whether it’s facilitating sessions, coaching private self tests, interviewing industry pros, or having an iced latte and a chat (she never drinks hot coffee) Rose naturally operates with respect, kindness and compassion, and loves to celebrate others!

Much like Liam Neeson, Amy possesses a unique set of skills across business management, marketing and advertising, social media and sales. 

 

Having graduated with a marketing degree from Monash University in 2013, Amy spent the next few years working her way up the corporate ladder in various roles in the advertising industry, including TV sales for Network 10 and Foxtel and media planning/buying for a number of brands including Xero, Swisse Beauty and Suzuki.

 

Even from a young age, Amy had always dreamed of one day being her own boss, so when the opportunity to build a business with her bestie was presented to her, she immediately threw caution to the wind and said “where do I sign?” Amy’s decisive nature and get shit done attitude were the perfect ingredients to help elevate Rose’s SceneWorkout concept into a full blown business and the two have never looked back!

 

Amy has a passion for helping people realise their own potential and it’s been a dream come true for her to see SceneWorkout give actors their power back and help them smash their goals!
