Listen to What Clients Are Saying About Improv Consultants

In September 2013, I had the good fortune to attend an interactive Leadership seminar at which Lisa Safran of Improv Consultants was the featured presenter. From the moment Lisa took the stage to the moment she signed off, she had attendees engaged and attentive. Her delivery was energized by her enthusiasm and comfort level on a stage, in front of an audience, with a microphone in hand. She was as amused and delighted by us – the audience – as we were by her – the speaker, the improv master, the communications expert. She fully filled the hour with compelling stories and inspired ideas and interactive activities, giving each of us valuable takeaways regarding being better listeners, being more comfortable public speakers, and being more accepting of interpersonal communications with friends, family, and business colleagues. Lisa was very well received by this largely professional audience and I highly recommend her to any organization looking for messages of inspiration and information.

In my 30-minute phone consultation with Lisa Safran, we covered a lot of ground. That’s because she is so organized. Before the call, I answered a list of questions she emailed me several days earlier, priming me to identify my top priority issues quickly. The exercises that she offered to address these issues helped me rethink the language I use in my pitch so my message is more inviting. Her approach is unique and gets results.

21Tech hired Improv Consultants to provide a Team building workshop to our staff using Improv techniques. We were very happy with the results. Lisa was highly effective, personable, and empathetic with shy employees, working easily to instill confidence in the staff to help each other, support one another and eventually enjoy and build upon a team member’s contribution in exactly the way we had envisioned. They taught us to use nothing but our wits and each other to create something dynamic and magical.I am so happy with Lisa’s work with this team, I am bringing ImprovConsultants back to provide the same spark with the rest of my company. I have no hesitation in recommending ImprovConsultants for corporate team building.

Wow! Our two hour private session flew by! Before working with you, I was struggling with how to get all the “stuff” out of my head and into creating a workshop that would really empower my audience. By the time our session was over, I had a clear direction for my workshop and a whole bunch of fun, creative ideas to use! Your playful nature and obvious experience in creating training programs was just what I needed to help move my business forward. I will definitely be working with you again!

Lisa Safran facilitated a workshop at the District 57 Toastmasters Fall Conference on the Cal Maritime campus in Vallejo, CA on behalf of Heart2Heart Toastmasters. Her workshop was the last one before the closing ceremonies. Usually attendees have lost a lot steam by late afternoon yet Lisa’s session brought everyone involved alive with energy. The buzz from that session should carry HRT2HRT forward a new impetus of growth. I strongly recommend Lisa for her fun professionalism that gets results that will meet if not exceed your expectations.

I would recommend Ms. Safran–she found out what my goals for the sessions were. She made good use of the time I could afford. She left me with good and easy practices that I could use to support what I learned and what I want to do. The best sign to me as a pretty powered business woman–25 years in the garment industry, is that Lisa helped me set positive and possible goals that I can practice and achieve!!! And feel good about myself while I am doing them. Grade A from this satisfied woman.

Lisa is a gem. I’ve been taking improv as way to express creativity and step out of my comfort zone. More recently, I reached out to Lisa to help me prep for a big interview – to kick the nerves and handle tough questions in a calm and confident manner. Her improv exercises were unconventional, effective, and fun! I highly recommend Lisa for unleashing creativity and confidence for anyone.

I first met Lisa Safran at a BNI meeting. Even in a room full of extroverts, Lisa’s friendliness and positive energy set her apart from the crowd.I’m the co-founder of a startup called BeCouply, which helps couples have epic social lives, in part by providing them with amazing all-inclusive date experiences. So, I was immediately intrigued when I heard Lisa describe Improv Consultants. What could be a more fun and unique date than an improv session?Lisa and I worked together to plan the perfect improv event for a small group of BeCouply couples. During the planning process, Lisa was the consummate professional – thoughtful, organized, and always prompt to respond. Even more importantly, the event itself lived up to all of my expectations! Lisa led the group through several improv activities that helped each pair to deepen their bond as a couple, by focusing on trust and communication, while still having fun. That’s no easy feat! Overall, I was extremely pleased with Lisa and Improv Consultants. We will certainly keep them in mind for future events and strongly recommend their services to others!

Hi Lisa – Been meaning to email you all day to tell you about what a terrific job you did last night as our presenter. Everyone was raving about the program on our Rotary group email buzz today. You made quite an impression and I really wanted to thank you for your well-prepared program and the high energy you bring! I saw my Rotary group really get into the games and techniques you presented. Not a single grumble or any “stick in the mud” people- everyone joined in the fun! Again, thanks so very much! Warmly, Karen
