SOME TESTIMONIALS:

“Before [improv]… I lacked the confidence in myself and my abilities to take risks. The fear of possible failure in front of co workers or friends was always in the back of my mind. Through improv, I have learned to not only to face those fears, but to chase them.” – ColdTowne Student
“I have learned to not only be efficient and specific with my communication, but also to actively listen to my co workers and clients. I don’t just hear their words. ColdTowne taught me how to listen to someone’s whole self. Their tone, their body language, and so much more.”Academy for Conscious Leadership June 2013 – ColdTowne Student
“I learned a variety of group exercises in class that I have taken back to the workplace. My team has loved the jolt of energy, melding of minds, and release of steam these improv games consist of!” – ColdTowne Student Academy for Conscious Leadership June 2013

Q: Why Does my company need Improv training?

A: Bill Murray called improv the “most important group work since the pyramids.” Improv sharpens critical communication skills, improves teamwork and helps to create a positive work environment. It’s also great for creative thinking and presentation skills. Most importantly? It’s tons of fun.

Our clients regularly tell us that their improv training has transformed their work environment, helping their company become more efficient and productive. In other words, improv training is training that works.

In addition to being hilarious comedians, our staff of facilitators are made up of professional team builders, therapists, and educational specialists. They have also directed, taught, and performed at some of the world’s most recognized comedy institutions, including Second City, ComedySportz, and Improv Olympic. They have run countless training seminars from organizations such as Ebay, Shell Oil, SxSw Interactive, Dell Computers and Whole Foods Market.
