Diotime

Chantal_Marti_Diotime

Founder

Professional actress, certified adult trainer, Public Relations specialist.
My experience is unusual, and this is what makes my work so special. Since 2014, I use my acting techniques, communication tools and emotions management to answer the needs of my customers.

Theatre

Following my dramatic art school in Paris, I worked on stage in France, Poland and Switzerland, and participated in numerous workshops led by talented international artists. This gave me vast experience with different acting techniques and a full acting toolbox, which I now use in my workshops and coaching sessions. I specially enjoyed exploring body and voice work.
In order to better understand human nature, I also research the field of emotions. I followed an introduction course on emotions with Isabelle Filiozat of France.

Business & education skills

I completed a Communications school in Lausanne (Polycom), resulting in a Diploma in Communication and a PET Diploma of Public Relations specialist. I worked in different professional environments: in companies, as well as NGOs and Foundations.
Beside my career as an actress, I have been working for a major international company in Lausanne, in charge of an internal training program. Part of my activities was to coach the presenters.

In order to gain further knowledge and proficiency for my training sessions, I studied education skills and andragogy, and obtained a PET diploma as an adult trainer in 2016.

An unconventional path for a unique approach

I use tools gathered from my different experiences to create unique training and individual sessions, and to respond to each person's expectations and needs. Curious and passionate, I love to look for the best in each individual to help them reveal their true self and descover new skills.

About Diotime

Diotime was a woman who lived in ancient times, the only woman mentioned in Plato’s Symposium. She certainly possessed charisma and good public speaking skills to appear in such a philosophical book!

The Belgian writer Henri Bauchau describes her as a passionate woman: she meets Œdipe and helps him give birth to an ancient song. The picture is beautiful and reveals an ideal: to focus on the human beings, with all their specificities and splendor, and help them go beyond their own barriers, to discover something new about themselves. A little bit like a journey: an invitation to discover new territories. Or what we could call: THE ACTING EXPERIENCE!
