Powerfully organic

How Business Training Started

Early in his coaching career, Matthew Dearing noticed a distinct pattern. His students were not only getting better at acting but also consistently reporting new successes within their professional lives.

Curious, Matthew tested a theory; “learning acting technique has a positive impact on the workplace”. As the results poured in, he immediately began reimagining his teachings for maximum impact within a business format.

Matthew opened Dearing Acting Studio in January of 2007 and began coaching his first business clients by the end of that same year.

Everything we do involves performance. Surgeons “perform” surgery. Realtors “show” houses. Executives “present” to the board. We specialize in high level performance training.

This is why Matthew’s acting and business coaching has been able to help thousands of people reach their goals and begin mastering their lives through the craft of acting.

The Results


When Blueprint Education first contacted Matt Dearing in 2018, little did we know just how impactful his expertise and influence would rock our organization!

Our initial purpose was to have Matt help our leadership team become more confident public speakers while at the same time, building our team into a unified powerhouse of people who would be ready for new opportunities as our organization continued its growth.

As the saying goes, you have to walk before you can run and our leadership team certainly experienced those awkward and uncomfortable moments in the spotlight, during those impromptus where the words completely escaped our tongues and the panic of feeling “naked” on stage enveloped our psyche.

Slowly through the productive struggles our team endured during those years, we are now well-equipped to handle the unanticipated verbal and nonverbal cues thrown our way. Our team has developed the fortitude to stay strong and assured in whatever environment we walk into.

We’ve taken full advantage of Matt’s intuitive sense of people and situations to know what it takes to be comfortable in being uncomfortable and to always be listening because it’s always your turn and it’s never your turn.

Blueprint Education heavily relies on Matt Dearing and his incredible support team helping us not only with our leadership team but also through our team building and corporate workshops, C suite coaching, as well as his private executive coaching workshops to finetune our CEO’s messages.

We can’t even begin to show our gratitude to Matt and his team for their continued support and encouragement over these past years. We’ve claimed Matt for life!
