Johnny Blackburn
MA Personal Development Coach
“There are times, especially with referral partners, when I lose that self confidence, and stumble with my words, because I've built up a mental block, so I won't even talk to them, and especially not ask for their business. It's those times, especially when I apply the skills I've learned through taking improv, that help me think quicker on my feet, to be a better listener and to be truly present. It also helps me break down mental barriers and feel more confident and secure with who I am.”
Victoria Schafer
Home Mortgage Consultant, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage
“From the first workshop I took, it became apparent that the exercises fine tuned my interactions with people, providing exceptional customer service. I have learned so much from some of the principles of improv that I have now instilled some of my lessons to employees which I train in the retail environment. I personally believe that these principles can be applied to any business which utilizes customer service, team building, and networking.”
