What Alex Offers:

Alex offers customized group workshops, one-on-one sessions, and keynote speeches focused on your organizations needs and how the key tenets of improvisational theatre can be utilized to ascertain leadership shortcomings, mediate conflict, concoct collaborative workflows, and boost creative problem solving in the workplace and at home!

What is Improvisational Theatre or "Improv" anyway? Improv is the simple and innovative act of creating something (words, physical movement, etc.) from nothing (no preparation, instructions, or script) onstage via the power of listening, agreement, and bold decision making.

So how can improv help me and my business? Everyday we are thrust into situations requiring quick thinking and immediate decision making. Much like a playbook, improv can expose a set of innate patterns and skills that enable all of us to think on our feet, making the most informed decision for any given problem.

His Values:

Alex firmly believes that everyone has the power to lead, that poor training, societal pressure, and impostor syndrome often get the best of us, leading to poor decision making and, in turn, poor leadership. Click below to find out more...
