Testimonials

“John’s team building work through improvisation was very effective in breaking down barriers and allowing the whole team to get to know each far more. John provided us with some interesting challenges and great fun. There was a lot of laughter, which was a good result and seen as a real success across the whole team – although we won’t be tempted to give up our day jobs any time soon!”

“John’s Improv day was one of the most enjoyable and rewarding days I’ve ever had in a work environment. Whilst it was a few hours of complete fun, the business and personal messages beneath it were very powerful. We all came away with a significant improvement in our instant creativity”

“Thank you once more for bringing both fun and learning into our recent training programmes with your improvisation work. Everyone loved the improv sessions and the feedback has been great. Your sessions achieved many things, amongst them; creativity, fun, spontaneity, trust and above all a great way to team build! The group experienced each other in new ways they could not imagine possible. They surprised and delighted each other, which was just wonderful. We look forward to inviting you back.”

“As a facilitator, John brings a powerfully positive presence and deep level of facilitation skills. He is extremely enabling and supportive whilst at the same time encouraging people to extend their capacity and take risks in conversation. His ability to get people to sidestep anxiety and just jump into doing things is very impressive indeed; he creates a constructive and playful climate which is very enabling. His last piece of work with us in our strategy days made a significant difference to the working climate of the group and enabled us to have deeper and more productive conversations after his session”

“Thanks for your workshop today as part of the National Tourism Management Institute Conference. You fulfilled my objectives of breaking the mould of a normal conference workshop superbly. What you managed to achieve, just in one hour, will continue to affect the participants for a very long time. It is clear from the feedback that the session turned out to be the most stimulating, thought provoking and effective of the whole conference. I very much hope that we have the opportunity work together again in the future”

“Absolutely brilliant! The improv comedy show complete with improvised songs that the Maydays did at our annual conference was pure genius – I’m really not sure how they do it, but they certainly do! They had even the grumpiest of our delegates in stitches.”

“I have known John Cremer for several years now, and he is one of the most creative and inspiring Academy for Chief Executives speakers that it has been my privilege to work with. His workshop on improvisation is simply awesome, and the learning and opportunity for growth by participating in this session is enormous. This is a man with rare and unusual talent, and any chief executive should engage him as part of their overall management development process"

"Our practice event was a great success. John created a safe environment that allowed people to feel comfortable with putting themselves forwards. Delegates were surprised at how funny they could be and the more we got it wrong the funnier it became. Throughout the session we related the skills that were being learnt back to our workplace. Overall this was an extremely successful event."

"It is rare, perhaps unique, for us to give a standing ovation to any speaker. The session you gave us was outstanding, full of fun and laughter, great for bonding, and will bring learning at many levels."
