These sessions get team members on the same page quickly. Building better relationships with coworkers through laughter and shared experience.

Face 2 Face

Face to face sessions are great fun and very practical. They are interactive and supportive. With over fifteen years of experience in teaching through laughter, we help teams, feel great and think fast.


Taking the 'meeting' out of zoom meetings, using games and comedy (improv) to help teams connect in new more engaging ways and work around the missing bits of body language we lose when we're in a webcam window.

About Improv

Improv is an incredibly fun way to build confidence and develop communication skills. From trainee managers to cultural ambassadors, improv is for everyone. It’s not about trying to be funny, or cracking a joke at the expense of a teammate - improv uses games as a way to learn and develop. And it works fast.

As businesses change the way they work, there is a need for more flexible teambuilding. More recently, we've developed improv sessions for online groups, where we lose some of our body language and need to find new ways to stay engaged.
