“What a fantastic time we all had today!  Thank you Leela for facilitating a wonderful session for a large bunch of rowdy improv students from Google.  I’ve organized a number of these sessions over the past 2+ years and I have to say: I’m confident that the group really had a blast and felt that the time was quite meaningful!  This is not always the consensus when we all get together.  Thanks again for an excellent workshop.  You’re fantastic!”

Angelo Carino, SMB Sales Team, ADS, Google

“I reached out to Leela to book an Improv session for our Global Finance Department Offsite.  For me, it was the highlight of our entire event.  Our group was very diverse with no prior experience and we all came away from the experience learning so much about ourselves and each other.  It was an exhilarating bonding experience focused on building trust & support through creativity & fun.”

Toni Ng, Director of Financial Operations & Systems, AppDirect

“Leela was the best – super organized in coordination, passionate about driving results for our team, and super easy to work with.  We had a great time learning how to trust each other, find confidence in ambiguity, and get out of our comfort zone.  Everyone found the exercise to be very relevant to our business roles and helpful for internal and external communications.  Would highly recommend for team building or any internal skill building for companies!”

Francesca Nicoletti, Growth Marketing Analyst, Ampush

“My team at work did a session with Leela.  We had a lot of skeptics and apprehensive people before the session but Leela made the session awesome – we had the perfect “learning curve” for everyone (as it was all our first time doing improv) and the perfect balance of activities and debriefs.  We all had an amazing time and can’t wait to go back!”

Adam Tong, Head of Operations, Komodo Health

“Improv can seem intimidating but it really isn’t.  Jill and her team make it so easy by starting with simple games that build up into the Improv experience.  The transition from getting warmed up to doing Improv is so seamless and gradual you won’t even know you are doing it until it is too late and you realize you are doing it and actually having fun.”

Eric Stone, AD Order Management, Genentech

Forbes, Why Improv Training Is Great Business Training

“Studies have shown that people can improve their communication skills and lower their anxiety with regular practice.  Improv’s low-stakes training increases the likelihood that team members will feel comfortable communicating in a variety of work situations.”
