What you'll do

Perfect for teams looking for a fun way to virtually connect and engage with one another, while building and refining interpersonal skills applicable to your day-to-day work and life.

Context
When guests anticipate doing improv, most think stand-up comedy. I can promise you won’t have to perform or be funny. The truth is improv is about active listening, paying attention, and showing up with full presence in support of others.

Instead of a lecture or performance, I facilitate a swift and seamless flow of smaller breakout group activities and a variety of structured interactions, providing valuable insights and reflection. This unique content and approach offers improv as a versatile tool for team-based learning and growth, while having a ton of fun along the way!

Improv Benefits
* Get to know your colleagues better; build trust, camaraderie, and connection
* Experience and express innate creativity
* Have fun while being spontaneous, agile, and open
* Uplevel interpersonally: collaboration, communication, storytelling, empathy, and flow

Chris is a wonderful host in person and over Zoom! Chris and his assistant Eva created a great space and experience for my program’s group of interns to be engaged, vulnerable, and have fun while pushing themselves out of their comfort zone. Leading up to the event, Chris was very communicative and really took the time to understand what my team wanted to create for our interns and our desired outcomes of the session. I can’t recommend this experience and Chris enough, it was such a pleasure and such a fun time to connect through Improv.

Chris facilitated a great team bonding experience for our group's quarterly morale event. All the activities were light, fun, and easy to execute. Everyone was laughing and smiling the whole time. I feel we all got to know each other a little better, and got to learn about some new storytelling and collaboration skills we can apply in our day-to-day work. Chris did a great job of keeping the energy high and engaging the group. Some quotes from the group: - "It was awesome!" - "We should definitely try some of those activities in our meetings." - "That was a blast!" - "Looking forward to the next one!"
