What We Do 

Improvisation is based on the philosophy that “it is OK to make mistakes.” It is a powerful tool that helps build confidence, collaboration and creativity. Improv Consultants uses improvisation to provide engaging and enjoyable experiential programs for businesses of all types. Our consultants have expertise in conducting team building and management training that promotes teamwork and authentic communication. We also provide personal coaching that develops leadership, presentation and communication skills.
