IMPROV FOR BUSINESS
There is nothing worse for staff motivation than a stuffy lecture or a boring training session for your team. We change all that with our unique
approach to business using improvisation.
Improvisation is the art of creating scenes and stories out of given suggestions. Often silly, surreal, script-less but above all, huge fun! What better way to motivate than having a hilarious day working together and creating unique one off comedy scenes!
Improvisation techniques hone skills in some of these key areas:-
- Problem Solving
- Team Playing
