What People Are Saying

"I want to thank you for the dynamic seminar. You made us aware that humor is an essential ingredient to a healthy and productive workplace. Thanks again for a special experience."

Charles Schwab

"Everyone found the section on the value of theatrical skills in business to be right on target. We all enjoyed learning how to apply principles of Improvisational Theater games to the demands of sales and marketing in the global marketplace. The professional fun and funny program that you shared with Oracle will inspire all that experienced your session for years to come."

Harry R. Gould, Vice President, Oracle Corporation

"The feedback I received from the 300 people in attendance was overwhelmingly positive. Your ability to leave the group with a message while having fun was inspiring. Your show indicated how important it is to incorporate humor into business. I am now a believer in the benefits."

Arlene Sena, Sr. Vice President, AT&T

"The forum on Business Theatrics was an enthusiastic, fun way for all participants to take a break from the 'formal' side of our meeting and relax and build new friendships. It was a very positive and 'team building' experience for everyone and helped us promote the basic theme of our meeting: Teamwork and Being a Team Player."

Rex Massey, Managing Director, FedEx

"Our fears that the staff would question the value of a non-technical, non-clinical presentation proved totally groundless. In short, you were a complete success and we are already clamoring for more of the same."
