"Lisa has an impeccable knack for knowing when and how to command an audience's attention. From intimate executive leadership retreats to 400+ person global sales meetings, we've commissioned her services to infuse our guests with inspiration, and a feeling of weightlessness and freshness amidst weighty content."

Improvisation is a great way to get groups connecting, listening, and responding to each other before a collaborative event.  If you have a strategic planning session, brainstorm, debrief or staff retreat planned, putting some improv up front is a wonderful way to set the stage for open partnerships and and set people up for a great collaboration.


A player, teacher, and thinker, Lisa engages deeply with the lessons that improvisation has to teach us. A speaker at SF hotspot creativity conference, The Sum by Bold Italic, Lisa brings something different to her talks - interactivity, humor, and her uniquely accessible eloquence.  Her goal is to bring participants out of their sit-and-observe mode to get them interacting, questioning, experiencing and thinking.
