We’ll work with you on:
- Improving and enhancing your pitching skills
- How to employ different types of storytelling strategically
- Finding your own narrative voice, and adapting it based on your audience and the story itself
Your team will have fun, but they’ll also learn valuable skills like listening and responding insightfully, leaving egos at the door, and connecting meaningfully with others. If we do our job correctly, this workshop will not feel like work at all!

Improvisation and Storytelling
Participating in a Corporate Improv Workshop can enhance any team’s business skills. These workshops focus on creating an innovative space to encourage engagement and personal development, and to foster creativity and growth. Practice the art of possible through an improv experience that will motivate your corporate team toward positive change!
Improv skills are directly transferable to the corporate world:
- “Yes, and…” and “over-acceptance” are fundamental tenants of improv. We’ll teach your team to enthusiastically support and sell any idea, a crucial skill in business.
- Improv is all about inclusion and valuing the input of others. We’ll foster a safe environment for ideation.
- Improv isn’t about going for the laugh. It’s about being in the moment, listening to others, and working to advance the scene through organic response, skills central to corporate work.
- Part of improv is the art of the pause. We’ll teach your team to take a moment and make an intelligent choice, a critical workplace skill.
The workshop will not only be a fun experience for your team, but you’ll also learn valuable skills like engagement, cooperation, acknowledgement, and humility. In improv, we don’t allow negativity, and we treat every idea as a gift.
