What are people saying?
"Everything was fantastic! Dave did an incredible job. Our team had a great time, and I can still see the positive impact as we bring what we learned into the workplace."
-Stacy W, Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle, January 2020
"The Improv session was fun and extremely transferable to the sales environment. This should be pitched to more corporate sales offices!"
-Justin D, The Hershey Company, October 2019
"Dave facilitated a fantastic team experience!!! I heard feedback from multiple teammates stating that this activity was amongst the best they’d experienced. I found Dave to be professional, and the kind of presenter I aspire to be. I was particularly impressed by how he was able to make each exercise relevant to our job experience."
-Jeff M, The Hershey Company, October 2019
"Dave did his homework and provided our team with the most fun and educational team building event we have had to-date. Dave curated the improv exercises directly to our team's unique structure and needs. The activities focused on team bonding and brought even the shyest team members out of their shells to have a good time. I highly recommend Dave and CSz to any team who wants to spice up their basic team workshops with some fun and educational entertainment".
-Ryan U, Amazon, September 19, 2019
“Our cheeks hurt from smiling so much! I am so glad we had CSZ out for our event! They did an awesome job, we had a group of about 40 people and everyone could participate and had a great time :)”
-Nikki Baker, Washington State Patrol Budgeting and Fiscal Services
"Perfect experience for our team; it was a fun and different way to work on our communication and presentation skills. Not sitting around a meeting table listening to people talk but going through Dave's ridiculous exercises was a creative and refreshing way to improve our skills as a team. We loved this experience. Thank you CSz!"
-Jane M, Mountain Safety Research
“CSz Seattle provided an excellent team-building event for our national conference attendees in our hotel conference area. With little work on my part to coordinate this event with CSz, the CSz crew arrived and provided an extremely fun and energetic set of activities. The activities were inclusive and not overly burdensome to those introverts in our group. These guys were fun and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to any group, large or small. CSz also provided an evening “show” during our conference reception. Based on our request to ensure the material was appropriate for our business/professional group, CSz again provided a fantastic show for us. It truly was amazing what this troupe can do! The feedback from the conference participants overwhelmingly listed the CSz events as “excellent” and the teambuilding was regarded as very valuable as a way for people to get to know each other.”
-Tim Adamczak, Alyeska Pipeline Company
“Josh and Dave did a great job encouraging participation and keeping everyone engaged during our workshop.”
-Becky Bartlein, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
“Great experience for our company workshop. Dave promised it to be entertaining, educational and unforgettable and it was all that and more!”
-Amber James, Stokes Action Group
WHAT IS APPLIED IMPROV?
As CSz performers, we use our improvisation skills onstage to get people laughing. Conveniently, offstage, we use them to run a successful business. We specialize in teaching people HOW to use improvisation techniques in their work lives. We teach the essential, yet often overlooked or discarded, communication and listening skills that will consistently improve the quality of your work, home and social relationships. We call this Applied Improvisation.
Tell us what communications skills you want to exercise and we'll craft a workshop specifically to meet your group's needs.
