Bring improv to your federal agency! An improv session with WIT@Work will lift your team’s spirits and provide much-needed laughter and connection. The cherry on top of this fun workshop? You and your team come away with knowledge of key improv concepts and how they can create success in any collaboration.

WIT@Work Director John Windmueller will facilitate an in-person or virtual interactive session for your team. It’s low-pressure, high fun, and works great over Zoom (if that’s what you choose). Windmueller has experience working with teams of all sizes and from every sector—from small nonprofits to Fortune 500 companies.

How much value do you place on a happier team? WIT@Work offers fun with a purpose—we use the principles of improv to enable fun and laughter, while also demonstrating the power of creative collaboration and communication.
