WHAT IT IS

Improv training is a proven skill-building resource with many positive applications. In fact, a recent Forbes article reports that more Fortune 500 companies are using improv to inspire creativity, communication and productivity in their workforce.

Each Power of Yes workshop focuses on researched business principles, and can be customized to meet your organization's needs.

Our experience working with Donovan and Graham was exceptionally positive. The Power of Yes! concept is very fitting for a corporate audience and the messages are universal to almost any work environment.

Plus, the team's quality/professionalism was just what we needed to not only win over our Executive Team but also the members of the audience.
