We elevated our game…

We couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon! Our custom workshop focused on working as a team and how we can best build off each other’s ideas. Finest City Improv directly related all their lessons to our GoPro brand, and through the magic of improvisation we elevated our game.

The client was thrilled!

As a whole, the Value Stations were a great success and the client was thrilled! I am very happy with the way you and your team brought to life our ideas. The scripts incorporated Sabra’s values extraordinarily well and were perfectly aligned with the information you were provided with but with that extra pizzazz that we were looking for!

A workshop was just what we needed…

Amy Lisewski brings her branded method of playful discovery to any group, and brought so much life to my team! Being able to work with creative minded and energetic entrepreneurs, I am always thinking of new ways to challenge them and bring new approaches to learning into my coaching. A workshop with Amy was exactly what my group needed to laugh and work with each other in a different and exciting way.

Now I look forward to, instead of dreading, presenting!

Finest City Improv tailored a work shop specific to our requests for a fun, unique and collaborative client event. Everyone was able to participate and work on presentation skills in a comfortable environment. We all have had to attend presentation training and just dreaded it. Finest City Improv does the complete opposite of dread. It made me want to practice my presentation skills and look forward to actually having the opportunity to “present”. How great is that? Finest City Improv accomplishes all of this in just 2 hours.

Rave Reviews from WD-40 Employees

Wow! Within just a couple of hours, Amy and Kat had our team open, trusting and ready to move forward with positive communication and relationship building skills. We received rave reviews from our tribe members (employees) and created a significant shift in our mindset as it relates to positive communication. The “Yes.. And” was especially powerful as well all of the stimulating activities that got us out of chairs, out of our comfort zones and on the path towards self-awareness and development. Bravo Finest City and we will definitely request a repeat performance!

Our president said it was the best retreat, bar none…

Finest City Improv managed to turn a group of attorneys into funny folks, as we improvised our way through challenges, bonding as a team along the way. The Finest City Improv team was so thoughtful and helpful in planning our custom workshop. Our president said it was the best retreat, bar none, that he had ever attended for any organization.

Days after we were still talking about the experience!

The staff at Finest City Improv hit it out of the park on all counts. They customized a workshop that was fun, informative, and engaging. We walked away from the workshop a more cohesive team and inspired to take that energy back to our own respective teams. Days after the workshop my key managers were still talking about their experience and applying what they learned to their daily work.

We had such an awesome time!

Kat and Amy were full of energy and excitement with our group, what I loved most was their ability to get the team engaged. Everyone participated and the end result was a room filled with confident sales people who had just finished a bunch of activities they would normally never participate in. I would highly recommend their workshop to other companies who want to have fun while they work!

Really brought the crowd to life at our event!

Finest City Improv was integral to the success of our event. They got visitors engaged, laughing, participating, and carrying on, and really brought the crowd to life at our event! In the planning stages, Kat and her team helped to shape the artistic direction of their performance, were flexible and professional, and added so much creativity and fun to the program from the very first meeting. Their spirit and joy for what they do is apparent and makes for a great event!

These exercises build confidence in a group and for each individual.

I loved the improv class. I thought it was very funny and it was a great team experience. I think from a business and professional stand point it was really good too as we discovered some issues with brainstorming and some people not getting their voices heard. Amy was great and made everyone feel comfortable. These exercises build confidence in a group and for each individual.

Their keynote knocked it out of the park!

Finest City Improv was anything but traditional in their keynote presentation. They had our large group up on their feet utilizing the principles of improvisation right away. We will not hesitate to work with Amy and Kat again, as our team is already taking to the “Yes! And…” philosophy that was taught in the presentation. They knocked it out of the park!

Finest City Improv will take excellent care of you…

We LOVED working with Finest City Improv, and their team of experts, to ... improve skills, confidence, increase sales, and to be willing to take bigger risks in their business. In sales you need to be able to improvise. You cannot be static.

Our guests were engaged and thinking creatively all day!

We were so happy to have Finest City Improv open our conference with a session on Improv. They really got the room engaged and thinking creatively and the energy that they inspired lasted all day. Improv is a great way to get the group on track before moving to business topics. What could possibly be better than a room full of happy, awake, engaged people at a conference? Thank you, Finest City Improv!

Great creativity in my managers that I got to see for the first time…

There is a great creativity in my managers that I got to see for the first time. They came up with new and unique ideas that I had not thought of. Working in customer service, we can utilize the techniques of the Finest City corporate workshop to propel us to be bold and step out of our comfort zone and into action with every guest that comes in.

We laughed and had a great time!

The San Diego Chapter of International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) was extremely pleased with Finest City Improv.

Our instructor was professional and fun to work with, her enthusiasm was contagious! The group exercises we admins performed taught us to listen, trust, and respond in a bold, honest way! We laughed and had a great time, and became stronger as a group.
