Lisa Pertoso, Founder
Improv changed the way I saw the world and how I participated (played) in it.
Six years ago I turned my two major fears - being funny in front of an audience and being alone - into action. I took improv classes and challenged myself to go on over 100 first dates (and write about them). Did I fall in love? Yes. No, not with any of my dates but with the art of improvisation.
To my surprise, the skills and behaviors I practiced in improv directly translated into my professional and personal life. I grew into a more empathetic, adaptable, and collaborative leader. Improv taught me to navigate chaos with confidence and playfulness.
I design and facilitate programs for people and teams that are rooted in play. They focus on building leadership, communication, and creativity skills using methods from experiential learning and improvisational theater (more about my process here).
I partner with the smartest, most playful and inspirational people from all over the globe to the deliver impactful programs for our clients.
