What people are saying...

From the jump...and then progressively throughout our interactions, Maria has been an absolute GEM to work with! I truly believe that Maria has and actively uses the ability to instantly scoop people up with her glowing personality, incredibly insightful intellect, willingness and even better, desire to collaborate with others' mentality and spirit to make you want to curl up in her heart and never leave.

In this workshop, we'll explore how effective storytelling can set you apart and guide your career path.

Improv for Business

I can't count the number of times I've prepared for a meeting, and when I arrive things need to change - a key stakeholder can't make it, we now only have 30 minutes instead of 2 hours, the conference call equipment isn't working, and the list goes on. My improv training has been my saving grace in these situations. In this up-on-your-feet workshop, we'll explore the power of improv to arm you for the unexpected, and have a little fun in the process.
