How We do it

I connect through effective communication. A gifted communicator, I speak, write, facilitate and use the tools and techniques of improv to engage others and highlight human nature, conflict, connection and creativity.

I’m passionate about connecting people with their ideas and creativity.

Blessed with a strong instinct to listen and skilled at making others feel heard, I’m sought after to facilitate board retreats, sales conferences and brainstorming sessions.

I’ve been called a “Pracademic” mixing the real world experience backed by evidence-based science in everything I do.

My years at Second City in Toronto served me well and graduating from the Conservatory was a game changer. Improv taught me to think on my feet, deal with unpredictable situations and become intuitively agile, on stage and in life.

"100 staff and graduate students attended. It was easily one of the most dynamic and effective colloquia we have ever given."
David M. Harrison, Senior Lecturer Emeritus
University of Toronto

"It was fantastic! Improv encouraged even the most shy and introverted student and it gave the extroverted types the opportunity to listen. I cannot say enough how powerful the afternoon was for my students. It was one of the highlights of my teaching career."

"I collaborated on a networking event with Nancy for Enterprising Women and found her to be a real joy to work with. She was professional, delightful, engaging and I would highly recommend her as a key note speaker!"

"Nancy presented a dynamic lesson on bridging the gender communication gap…insightful, active, engaging and thought-provoking…with more laughter than we’ve ever shared at our local monthly engineering meeting."

Deep Foundations Institute

"Improv was a scary word for me until I met Nancy! She instantly brought a light to my group and helped each and every one of us shine brighter. She was even kind enough to stay late and help us perfect some of our business improv skills - which have certainly paid off!! Thank you Nancy, we will be calling again!"
