Supercharge Communication

Improv isn’t just for comedy, it’s the skill of unscripted conversation. Nathan uses improv techniques to elevate active listening, presentation skills, and foster confident communication.

Catalyze Collaboration

Improvisers work harmoniously without any props or scripts, relying solely on each other. This philosophy can turn your student group into a cohesive, trust-filled team.

Become Adaptable

Becoming flexible, embracing change, and reacting in high-stress situations are crucial. Through improv, Nathan teaches your students to be nimble, intuitive decision-makers.

“I learned that it’s okay to feel a bit uncomfortable and get outside of your comfort zone. That is where the learning begins. It was a great experience and our staff had fun, learned some new communications skills, and got to know our co-workers better.”

“Nathan was very energetic and spoke in a very casual way while remaining professional. He was very prepared, made it personal, and made the audience feel comfortable.”


Everything was entertaining, and I learned how to have more positive & inclusive conversations with my colleagues.

“I now have more confidence in my communication skills. And I’ll be more mindful when listening to someone without cutting them off or nodding my head too much. I liked the variety of activities that are built on one another. I think by the last exercise we were very prepared to sell our odd objects!”
