Transformational Collaboration

Your team members will work for the company, but will they create for the company?  Do they help the company solve problems by building on each other’s knowledge, experience and creativity? Or are they just good at their jobs? Widely recognized as one of the top improv teachers in North America, Rob Nickerson leads audiences through an entertaining, educational, and energizing session that brings the skills and exercises of improvisational theatre into the workplace, to leverage the most underused and valuable resource a company has: the problem-solving, innovation-creating talents of its people.

Rob’s highly-rated keynotes and workshops are designed to help your company develop a more collaborative culture built on trust and collective creativity. Working within their organization’s own needs and circumstances, participants learn and actively experience how to combine their knowledge, abilities and creativity to achieve measurable, lasting results within their own teams and throughout the company.

Featured in Fortune magazine and hailed as one of Canada’s most unique conference speakers, Rob is currently a program leader at McGill University, and has lectured at the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, and the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario. His clients include Microsoft, Astra Zeneca, Hoffman-LaRoche, RBC, OpenText, Rogers, Walmart, Scotiabank, TD Canada Trust, AOL, Bell, and many others.
