Lifestage training workshops and presentations can be designed for your staff, organization or conference and offered at your facility. Professional development courses include Transformative Storytelling, The Power Of Story, Workplace Communication, Emotional Intelligence, Creativity Training - all rooted in the practice of Applied Improvisation and the neuroscience of human connection. Our mission is to develop training seminars that meet the specifications and needs of your group. Check out TESTIMONIALS page for reviews of our onsite workshops.

Storytelling is one of the most effective ways to communicate ideas to the world and get your message out. It is also one of the fastest-growing forms of entertainment. Put a unique and indelible stamp on your brand by making your next event a storytelling show with stories drawn from your organization. We have partnered with organizations in New York and around the country to present arts-based events like these. A group of people from your organization volunteer to be storytellers at your event. We coach them and host the event, which is always powerful, memorable and unrepeatable.
