Theatre improvisation teaches us to think “Yes, And” before saying “No” or “Yes, But”.  While we can’t actually say yes to all ideas or requests, we can learn to listen more fully, amplify innovation, and generate trust and enthusiasm with any audience. We can come to enjoy “curveballs” by reading the room and trusting our instincts. Through improv, we enhance flexibility and responsiveness, hone our presence, and create lasting positive connections with clients and colleagues.


Humans are hardwired for stories. From childhood, stories are the way we learn and engage. As adults, great storytellers captivate attention, spark inspiration, and embed messages in our hearts and minds. Powerful stories teach lessons, create shared meaning, and spur positive action. Training in storytelling techniques enhances public speaking of any kind.
