We provide corporate training and team building workshops using a variety of forms of comedy. Comedy is extremely useful in getting across information that is the retained by those attending the event. That is why comedy is useful in training and team building programs.

Our Director has a lot of business experience, having served the Speaker of the House in Washington, DC, the FAA, and as the CEO of a small tech company. Whle being unconventional, he discovered that injecting a little positive humor proved a technique for success when done appropriately.

why comedy

Our Director found that when people laugh, they become more open to new ideas and more likely to take lessons to heart. This made a company engaged in comedy the perfect vehicle to help everything from small organizations to members of the Fortune 500.

We use improv comedy, game shows and murder mystery dinners for entertainment options and activities such as workshops, scavenger hunts, mini-Olympiads, audience Olympiads and mental challenges. We have worked with over half of the Fortune 500 and helped them to find even greater success at bringing employees together and fostering a sense of teamwork!



Making Workshops Enjoyable

Often workshops are seen as dull events where the attendees are simply there to absorb knowledge. Someone drones on about something while the attendees stare at the clock and doodle on the pads provided by the hotel or convention center. This is not a formula for success in the US or Canada.

Making the event a more enjoyable experience maintains the attention of the attendees. Focus on the facilitator increases the absorption of knowledge. They are focused because it might cause them to laugh, which is enjoyable. Rewarded attention in a physically positive way is a great way to motivate people to listen.

Making Workshops More Memorable

Interviews with many workshop attendees after a lecture have proven that little knowledge is retained. When knowledge is not directly related to the day-to-day activities of the attendee or not utilized soon after the event, often the knowledge is lost. If retention of knowledge is important to the company then practical methods must be used.

Fun events increase knowledge retention and short-term recall. Often attendees talk to their friends about the event or try to repeat jokes. Through association between the jokes and the event, the knowledge is recalled and is kept fresh in the memory. These fond memories of an event are key to remembering as opposed to an event that they want to forget.

Making Workshops a Positive Experience

Having workshops feel like a requirement are seen as something that has to be done as opposed to something to enjoy. Therefore, attentiveness during the event is already undermined by the nature of the event.

When the workshop is seen as a positive experience and the attendees anticipate the event, they are more receptive to the messages being delivered. Attendees are more likely to provide active participation allowing for affirmative adjustments to be made in content and to increase the interactive elements enhancing knowledge retention. By increasing the positive nature of the training, you also are enhancing the results.




Lower Barriers

By having people laugh together, they start to trust one another. Laughter is a very personal and embarrassing activity. Laughing together shows a level of trust and relaxation among people. This helps people to trust one another in other things.

Overcome Silo Mentality

Getting people from different teams to work together for common purpose allows them to see each other as human beings as opposed to by job title or work group. Laughing along the way solidifies this effect and can build the teams of a company.

Enthusiasm is Contagious

When engaged with others in a fun and enthusiastic environment, the positive attitude during that experience becomes how they perceive one another. Perceiving the positive attitudes of coworkers then reinforces that attitude in themselves.
