Creating trust and success within your organization requires teamwork. Team building workshops provided by THEY improv are enjoyable experiences for all. When people have fun, they are more receptive to information and more likely to actively participate.
Let's be honest, team building has a bad reputation among employees. The average employee thinks of team building as listening to a hippie in Birkenstocks talk about auras and energy. The reality of the experience is much different.
Here are just a few testimonials from just a handful of team building workshops and corporate events clients:
I have now had the opportunity to work with Nick two times for company team building events. The first time, I have to admit, I was pretty apprehensive about what the experience would be like, but Nick put us all at ease and made us recognize that there was no right or wrong in Improv or anything to clearly define good or bad – so we just needed to relax and let it happen. It was one of the most fun nights I’ve had in the past year – full of laughter and learning. It was such a good experience, I asked Nick back to facilitate an Improv event with a different team. As the point person for the event, Nick worked with me to identify the goals I had for the team building and effectively wove them into our event. Again, it was an excellent time for the team that helped us build trust and get more comfortable together. I would highly recommend Improv as a team building event, and specifically Nick as a facilitator.

Thank you very much for facilitating the Improv Workshop for our leadership offsite. The feedback was extremely positive and people had a great time getting out of their comfort zone and learning a little bit about improv and how that can apply to their jobs and leadership roles in the company. It also helped people to interact and get to know other people in a way they would not have before - and that is extremely valuable. We are extremely pleased with the session and will recommend They Improv for future Capital One events.
I just wanted to thank you for all of your help setting up the event yesterday. Please let Christian and Olivia know that they were PHENOMENAL and we appreciate their enthusiasm so much! I've already gotten so much great feedback on the event. As this program will be held annually, I can promise you that I'll be reaching out to schedule more events in the future.
Thank you again. I can't say enough how impressed I was with everything.

I wanted to write and send along a big thank you from the team for such a great event. Everyone was really engaged, and it definitely loosened the group up and opened up the lines of communications. We will definitely keep you all in mind for future events.
It was really a great event. Big thanks to you both! I'll be sure to recommend and evangelize this going forward.
I did not have a chance to properly thank you on Thursday. The session went really well and you did a fantastic job. It was a great way for us to end a three-day session. I appreciate you spending so much time with us. The team had a great time and you received rave reviews. I hope our paths cross again.
We at Hearst Business Media really appreciate the great team your company provided to us for our Team Building event. It was truly a complete success thanks to your facilitators Joe, Jay and Erik.
The day was full of team building exercises that focused on all the aspects we wanted to address such as interpersonal communication, motivation, innovation and being more accepting of our colleagues' ideas. We could not have done it without the exceptional professionalism, expertise and charisma that Joe, Jay and Erik brought to the table.
Everything that was discussed during our event, whether in fun or as a post activity discussion has really triggered our positive thinking, and we're working on implementing what was learned.
We are very appreciative of your assistance and wish you and your entire staff all the best. We will definitely keep you in mind for future events as well as recommend your services whenever the opportunity arises.

THEY improv helped make our sales conference a big success. Todd was a great facilitator, and soon had our group sharing stories and laughing aloud. Their team-building exercises were effective and entertaining, and their hilarious improv performance was a great way to cap off the day. I'd recommend THEY improv to anyone looking for a creative way to foster teamwork and camaraderie.

This is the first time we have ever done something like this as a company and he saw value in it.
Concierge Choice Physicians
Your group did a fantastic job with our team builder and I wanted to thank you and your team for making this event successful. Everyone enjoyed and you delivered exactly what we were looking for.
Thank you again!
Thank you so much for the work your group did for my team in July! My leadership team is a unique audience in that they are typically the ones who develop and implement train-the-trainer and other like events for their audiences. Your group was a perfect match to bring in for the directors. The format was relaxed, fun and entertaining!
I'd like to provide you with the specific comments that they each contributed in reference to their experience. I can't say it any better than they did:
'They created a relaxed atmosphere and made everyone feel equal.'
'They stretched our imagination and tapped into our creative side which made the whole day fun.'
'The facilitators were very personable and handled the group dynamics professionally.'
'It was a refreshing experience so different from what we've had before!'
'Bravo to the Improv group for presenting a lively, upbeat series of activities that allowed me to get to know my coworkers.'
'The facilitators proved that the right mix of improvisational skits and positive reinforcement does wonders to remove fear. Openness, trust, and a healthy dose of laughter shelved the remnants of humiliation I might have otherwise felt.'
'It was light and fun team building. I thought it was a great team building experience.'
'The games we played had an impact on this group that carried over throughout our week together. We continued to play the same games with each other when we went out for dinner. It gave us a common cultural point of reference that we could call our own.'
Thank you for a fabulous event! We appreciate all of the work and effort you put into this!

The improv session was very good. The actors were skilled at their craft, engaging, and fun!
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you and your team. I have received great feedback and everyone was very pleased with the event.
Royal and Sun Alliance (RSA Group)
The pace was perfect and just about everyone managed to participate w/in their own comfort zone (and some willingly stepped out of it!). Someone remarked that it was the best staff development day since 5 years ago when we started this.
It is always reassuring to know that people enjoyed such a different type of learning experience while having so much fun.

I wanted to let you know that I have heard nothing but great responses from everyone about our meeting this past weekend. Asaf and his team did a phenomenal job. I had several people comment they were not very enthused about doing improve but ended up really enjoying it and taking away a lot.
I know all of the owners also really enjoyed the meeting. They want to have you guys back next year.
I will keep your contact information and get with you when we start planning for next year.
Again, thank you for your help with everything and thanks for sending such a great team to work with.

We definitely appreciate THEY improv and the wonderful 'spin' you brought to our customer conference. We look forward to working with your team again in the future.
I want to start off by saying thank you for all of your help with last year's DMEF I-MIX program held at Columbia, MD on August 2nd. It was a wild success and could not have happened without you and your team.
Assistant Program Manager-DMEF
I'm almost 99% positive that every one of the 30 students walked out of the improv room with a better understanding of who each individual in the group was.
