Creative Problem Solving Skills and more!
Is your team listening, communicating, speaking and leading to the best of their ability? Are you telling your brand story effectively and connecting with clients and customers on a real and authentic level?
We can help you do this and more through our customized interactive learning workshops and development!

- Presentation and Public Speaking

Whether we come to you or you come to us, we keep your colleagues moving and engaged, and we keep your goals and everyday life in mind while we develop and grow skills that will make you a more effective organization.
Every program starts with a call to discuss goals, outcomes, time constraints and employee culture. We want to know what you want, and if you aren’t sure, we want to help you figure out where you can grow! Please note, we are offering remote workshops during this time due to COVID19.
After our call, here’s a handy flow chart of what next:
While we customize all of our workshops, we have some best sellers! You aren’t alone in your company needs. Here are three starting points that we can edit to fit your goals:
Presentation + Public Speaking: Using prepared upcoming or past presentations, our facilitators work on polish, advanced skills, and personalized feedback. We take the participants in the room, and through interactive activities, make them better, more effective speakers complete with activities and information on how they can continue to improve when we leave the room. This can include video components, multiple workshops, multiple facilitators, one-on-one meetings, storytelling components that focus on brand and mission development, and a full continuing education plan.
Improv For Communication Skills: Using interactive, improv-based learning and activities we focus on the day-to-day and higher-level communication skills. From listening and responding to positive communication and conflict management, we use interactive learning and reflection that works with the individuals in the room. We focus on ‘So What’ and ‘Now What’ – sure, these activities are fun and allow for team building – they also have real connections to everyday communication and interactions, as well as the Now What – you’ve realized what you need to work on, what next?
Storytelling and Presentation Skills: We know you have a great story – can you tell it to your audience? Storytelling is a big part of brand and company culture and it truly is an art form. We’ll work with your brand, information, employees, and style and help you bring out the best version for you and your audience. This workshop pairs well with brief presentation skills practice to polish and refine personal and professional style, as well as individualized feedback for authentic communication.
