“Improv with Neil surpassed my expectations in many ways. The classes delivered were far more enjoyable and fun than I could have imagined. That was in part due to the nature of improv but in much larger part due to Neil’s skills in teaching, understanding, perception and communication. I was imagining a tuition on how to “do” whose line is it anyway type of scenarios but was surprised to be exploring the barriers that we have constructed as adults. And then I was given the encouragement and space to tear these barriers down and relearn vital skills we had as children. Subsequently life is now viewed through a different prism with a clarity that has more colours and depth of perception than ever before.”
– Dr. Sim Lew-Gor, Consultant, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin
“Neil has delivered a series of interpersonal skills training sessions using improv as a tool for different groups of staff in the University and the feedback has been excellent. He is incredibly passionate about what he does, instantly creates trust in a group and excels at bringing out the best in people in a safe, thoroughly enjoyable environment. His primary strength is that he approaches each group with a fresh energy and takes people seriously while still enjoying himself.”
– Naoimh O’Connor, Research Careers Manager, UCD
“Renowned as they are for their imaginative approach to pretty much anything, Googlers are hard to surprise. Yet Neil’s ‘Emotion Machine’ routine did just that. During our latest team event Neil had us jumping, singing, dancing and, most of all, laughing out loud; all while maintaining friendly atmosphere that helped to build real team spirit.
Speaking on behalf of my team, I would recommend Neil’s workshop for any group looking for creative and inspiring team building exercise, that can be translated back into workplace. This one definitely stands out”
– Bozena Smialkowska, Online Media Associate Manager, Google Ireland
“I highly recommend Neil’s course to anyone with a fear of public speaking or if they suffer from social anxiety. Aside from learning some really valuable skills, feeling brilliant and overcoming my own fears, I met some of the best people and have made some life-long friends. Improv is so liberating! I’m so glad I did it.”
– Anna Shelswell-White (Editor, House & Home Magazine )
– Jack Murray, CEO, Media Contact Ltd.
“Members of the PopCap International management and business teams participated in a Business Improv Workshop, hosted by Neil Curran. The workshop was very relaxed, informal, well-structured and really a lot of fun. Neil is a natural presenter and moderator and he immediately put everyone at ease. We really enjoyed the workshop and got a lot more out of it than expected. We hope to have Neil come back to run this course again for our other managers and team members.”
– Aoife Brennan, Popcap Games International Ltd
“I had researched a number of Teambuilding training providers but what Neil pitched to us was exactly what our business was looking for. The feedback we received from the team after the training day was exceptional. The team were highly engaged, pariticipative and comfortable with each other. The team still talks about him today which demonstrated the high level of impact his session had. We cant wait to have him back again”
– Lead Manager in People Services, O2/Telefonica Ireland
“Neil’s workshop gave the team a heightened on screen/public presence as requested and took some of the more cagey members out of their shells, he himself gave 110% and we would definitely be booking him in again!”
– Declan Dowling – Gala Networks Europe
