    — Arun Dawit, Co-Founder of Urban Logiq (Batch 20 at 500 Startups)

    All of us walked away laughing and smiling, knowing a little bit more about each other, our neurons firing a bit more with the "yes and..." attitude, and energized for a day of planning and prioritizing with the team.

    Mary has successfully translated Improv Theater to a business context … it’s fun, it’s funny, it’s compelling and everyone she teaches comes away as a better, more confident, more focused presenter.

    — Rich Sheridan, Founder & CEO, Menlo Innovations, and Author of Joy, Inc

    Mary's improv session at Agile2018....easily the most impactful of the conference for me. Mary took 100+ strangers and, through improv, we were able to improve communication, build trust, become better listeners, problem-solvers, gain confidence, and have fun while doing it! We laughed a lot, learned a lot and, when we walked away, many of us were no longer strangers. All of this in less than 2 hours. It was awesome!

    - Ryan McCann, Agile Coach at Quicken Loans

    For the second year in a row, Mary's Workshop was a huge success at our accelerator program. Our founders and interns alike loved the captivating session. We laughed, fell down, and grew more comfortable with each other and public speaking. I would recommend her workshop for startups, corporations and everyone in between. It facilitates team cohesive in a way that really works while also providing hours full of laughter.

    — Alison Todak, Managing Director of Cahoots and former Director at Desai Accelerator at the University of Michigan

    Mary ran an amazing Improv session for our whole company as part of an offsite, engineers, sales and support and the team loved it.

    Whilst being hilariously funny, it also forced us to operate outside our comfort zones, and get us to know each other's personalities far better. We operate a distributed team across four countries, so this was a great way to bring everyone closer, make us think on our feet and have a bit of fun!

    — Simon Turner, President & Co-Founder of Myagi
