Creative Director & Facilitator


Stephen Sheffer

Practicing improv helps me practice being in the moment. When I'm present, I feel happier and more creative.

Stephen is a Brooklyn-based and award-winning improviser, actor and writer.


Stephen facilitated our first-ever Improv for Parkison's workshop at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. He is passionate about the myriad ways improv can spark community building and communication.


In the workplace, Stephen has facilitated workshops for companies all over North America, applying the principles of drama to team-building and creating inclusive cultures at companies such as TD Bank, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Duke University’s School of Business (MBA program), Amcor, JP Morgan Chase and others. Stephen is a graduate of Queen’s University in Canada (BAH with distinction, where he studied as a chancellor’s scholar) and Circle In The Square Theatre School in NYC.


As a performer, Stephen has performed on stages & screens all over North America. He studied improv at all of New York City’s major training programs. Stephen had a major ‘aha’ moment when he started to notice how his improv experience was parlaying and benefiting other parts of his life. Thanks to improv, his listening and collaboration skills have expanded exponentially.


For Stephen, it’s a no-brainer that the transformative skills and concepts that improv embodies are ripe for inspiring growth in individuals and businesses all over.
