A Truly Unique Group Experience

Get your group out of the building and onto the street, the streets of Roanoke, VA, for an exciting team-building Urban Scavenger Hunt! There are very few team bonding experiences that offer more fun than a good old-fashioned scavenger hunt! Explore local landmarks and businesses, learn a little history, bond with your group, use creative problem-solving skills, think out-of-the-box, get out of comfort zones, and have a ton of fun!

  • Solve the clues, work together with your team, be the fastest, most creative, be the winner! But most of all - have fun!

  • Scavenger Hunt will be customized to meet your group's interests. Clues created for locals or out-of-town visitors.

  • Minimum of 15 guests are required. We can easily accommodate 150 guests. 

  • An old-fashion Scavenger Hunt with new technology = unique way to encourage team bonding. 

  • Includes a post-hunt winners presentation with tacky-trophy.

  • Uncover hidden gems, iconic landmarks, back alleys and Roanoke's history on the Hunt!

  • Hunt start time can be customized for your group.

  • Scavenger Hunts can be scheduled year round any day of the week. 

  • At you request, we can help plan and coordinate a post-hunt celebration.

Applied Improv

A custom Workshop for your team.  Or a fun effective Break-out session for conference.  

“I'm very interested in improvisation because one of the things I do is to help train scientists to communicate in a better and more personal way when they're making a presentation, and I use improvisation to do that.”  - Alan Alda

 

When some hear the term, “applied improvisation”, they often have no idea what this means and how this can be professionally beneficial. They often fear the worst.

 

They worry that it means their participants and staff will have to tell jokes, will be forced to do silly exercises, or will have to do some form of trust fall.

 

An Applied Improvisation workshop is none of the above.

 

What is Applied Improvisation?

Applied Improvisation is a highly effective method of professional development that uses concepts, ideas, and techniques from the world of improvisation and applies them to business, relationships, and life.

 

It's not joke-telling, silly activities, or a scaled down equivalent of the TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway.”  It is effective, experiential learning that inspires, educates, and entertains.

 

Applied Improv is NOT the What.  

It’s the HOW. 

It’s important to understand that applied improvisation is not the what, but the how.

 

It’s how we’ll train incredibly valuable business skills such as communication, active listening, collaboration, innovation, risk taking, problem solving, and leadership. It’s how we introduce a culture of growth, build psychological safety, encourage authentic leadership and become more comfortable with chaos and the unknown.  It’s how we’ll learn to be more effective at what we do.  It’s also fun!

 

How is Applied Improvisation different from other workshops?

Applied Improvisation is engaging experiential and active.  Rather than just hearing about skills and ideas participants get to practice and participate in learning. Research shows that we retain much more of what we actually do and participate in firsthand.
