What People are Saying!

I am happy to recommend Improv Consultants-Safran Consulting without reservation. Lisa Safran was a pleasure to work with. She helped facilitate our Communications team retreat.Our goals were strategic planning, team building and improved internal communications. At first I was skeptical that my team would actively participate in an improvisation forum, but the day exceeded my expectations in every way. Lisa and her colleague Laura were expert in breaking the ice and getting everyone excited about the activities. I could easily see how well this forum could also work for developing leadership skills as Improv really helps folks to focus on active listening, stepping outside of their comfort zones and effective communication skills.

Plus, it’s really fun. I saw my team bond over sharing laughs, all while we worked towards collaboratively building out a plan to address strategic priorities.

—Deborah Chilvers, Deputy Driector SFPUC


The National Speakers Association, Northern California Chapter executed a two-day planning retreat and engaged Lisa Safran to work with the new board of directors. Our goal was to have the board learn and use improv techniques to bring the group together, facilitate decision-making and have skills we could use throughout the year.Lisa exceeded our expectations! She was so professional and made sure she was clear on the goals and the needs prior to the meeting. Her two sessions were highlights of the two-day retreat. She had the group out of their seats, learning, laughing and bonding. Just last week at one of our meetings, the president said “yes….and” and winked as he helped the group brainstorm some issues. I would highly recommend Lisa for any business, organization of non-profit that needs to move forward.

Lisa is a gem. I reached out to Lisa to help me prep for a big interview – to kick the nerves and handle tough questions in a calm and confident manner. Her exercises were unconventional, effective, and fun! I highly recommend Lisa for unleashing creativity and confidence for anyone.
