Workshops and Facilitation

Abolish Boring! Super-Creative Ideas and Big Results

Whether you need new product/service, storytelling or content ideas, or want to bust boring in marketing or sales, my approach to facilitation is playful (improv-based “yes, and!”), collaborative and helps customers generate lots of innovative ideas for better outcomes.  This is what happens when strategy meets improv!
