In our improv for business team building workshops we teach you to use the power of ‘yes, and’ to unlock potential in your team.
Our team building is all about collaborating amazingly well, so that you make the most of the creative capital of the team. With the right behaviours, the whole really can add up to more than the sum of its parts. Put simply, we teach you improv techniques for business so you can achieve extraordinary results with what you’ve already got.
- Do people in your team listen well to each other?
- Are people comfortable sharing their ideas?
- Do you have a feedback rich culture?
- Do people in your team fear making mistakes?
- Do people in your team bring their whole selves to work, or are their relationships only transactional?

What You’ll Learn
Team Building Away Days
Are you after an away day that doesn’t involve paintball or raft building?
“Laughter is the shortest distance between two people” Victor Borge
Nothing builds relationships like laughter, and this is what our team building experience is all about. Our workshops are brilliant fun, very energetic and fully immersive. It is an away day that people will talk about in the office for months afterwards.
What’s more: you don’t have to be funny! In fact, trying to be funny can actually be counter-productive to good improvisation because players are more focussed on cracking wise than on listening to their fellow players and developing a story organically.
Participants don’t need any drama, acting, comedy or impro experience whatsoever.
Our teachers are experts at coaching people of all backgrounds and helping them to get stuck in and have some fun. We are always amazed at how shrinking violets turn into confident improvisers by the end of the session, it is our favourite part of what we do. We create a supportive atmosphere of friendliness, excitement and humour that it is almost impossible not to get caught up in.
We can help arrange venues, or come to your venue, and are also flexible enough to fit into pre-existing team building away days.
Ice breaker activities
We’re flexible enough to come and deliver smaller ice-breaker sessions at conferences & team meetings, and to add a little light relief to longer training sessions and meetings.
We provide quick team building energisers that get everyone on their toes, wake people up after lunch, and get everyone talking to each other. We break down barriers between groups and create a warm friendly atmosphere where everyone can meet new people and collaborate.
We’re very flexible on time and can adapt to any event. We can’t wait to share our passion with your team.

Thanks for the workshop. All the feedback has been extremely positive! The team loved it!

The skills you taught them will give them a real competitive edge in the market place.
Inspiring and hugely relevant to how we work.
I’ve used the communication skills learned at Hoopla to attract over $3m in venture capital for my start-up. And had fun doing it!
A smash hit. The feedback has been really amazing.
Improv has helped me to truly listen to what my clients want, understand their problems and then effectively work with others on my team to deliver a concise and consistent message.
My work is about helping clients be more creative and uncover different possibilities and develop them - which improv has really helped with.
Improv has supported my listening and support work for people I represent.
Improv is a great release to just mess around while building on the communication skills, confidence and self esteem that help me in my day to day job.
Really useful for building self confidence and being able to communicate better with people who I was meeting for the first time.
Improv helped me have more faith in myself, particularly in meetings with clients or senior stakeholders. I have more confidence that whatever comes out of my mouth will make sense and be of value.
I think improv makes people kinder to others and themselves. It teaches you to listen, react and support and I think everyone could benefit from more of that individually and collectively.
