Applied Improvisation Service

The tools of Applied Improvisation can be used to address many workplace issues – team functioning, leadership, emotional intelligence, innovation and creativity, customer service, pitching and presenting, networking, confidence and personal impact, to name just a few.  In-house courses can be shaped and tailored to meet the particular needs and requirements of teams and departments.

Applied Improvisation training is effective, experiential, accelerated learning that inspires, educates, and engages.  It takes concepts, ideas, and techniques from the world of improvised theatre, and  applies them in other settings.  It uses the associated principles, practices, skills and mind-sets to enable and encourage corporate and personal learning and change. It’s not about being more extravert or funny. It is about acquiring a set of incredibly useful personal and interpersonal skills.
