“2013 saw ITV's commercial sales team nominated for Media Week's Sales Team of the Year - our equivalent of 'Best Film' at the Oscars. Our entry was a creative presentation, driven by 6 star presenters who built a physical set and used props to tell our story.
Before we focused this team on the presentation, we wanted to focus them on each other. Dave Bourn led the first day, bringing them closer together through improvisation and building a solid foundation for the following week's work.
Dave helped create strong new bonds between them, delivered an almost telepathic rapport, and helped the team relax in each others' company. The result was a tight team who performed absolutely in the moment, and coped with everything the live pitch through at them. Dave was an important part of our team, and a fantastic kick-start to a pitch that led to a golden trophy for our award cabinet.”

My personal journey has taken me from computer science to applied improvisation.
A period of illness after acquiring my degree left me anxious and low on confidence. Improvisation became a major factor in my recovery and led to performing and directing at the Edinburgh Festival and eventually teaching these skills to others.
I know from my own experience the transformative nature of improv and its impact on the individual and teams in communication, creativity confidence and resilience.
