Taking Rachel's improv training helped to create a cohesive environment among Riot's recruiting team. By creating a safe space, Rachel encouraged everyone to step outside of their comfort zone to exhibit leadership and quick thinking. Improv is about active listening, accepting a given situation, building upon it, and yes, sometimes getting a little silly! Improv is a wonderful team building exercise that could be beneficial for all types of business teams.

Rachel is an awesome and effective improv ninja. During our time with her she created fun and entertaining exercises for our group. She then taught us how to effectively implement that practice into work and real life. From Rachel I learned to be present always, adapt quickly and 'yes and' life. I would definitely recommend anyone to take improv with Rachel, she's awesome.

Rachel is extremely talented, hard working and committed. An enthusiast who bring out the best in others. Task oriented but with the imagination and energy to deliver more than you expect - time after time. Importantly she is fun to work with.

I needed some help preparing for a performance - but what I got was so much more. Not only did Rachel understand what I needed to get out of our time she also taught me loads of other invaluable lessons along the way. She has a lovely way of encouraging and stretching you all in the same breath. Highly recommended.

I took a workshop with Rachel from Impromptyou to help me with public speaking. She had a wide variety of methods with which to teach me voice projection and confidence, amongst other things. Rachel's improvisation based training was very enjoyable; I found that she is competent, confident and creative, and her great personality made the workshop relaxed and so much fun, yet packed with information and tools for further practice and learning.

Since joining Riot and doing improv, I have been able to learn skills that help me channel my once restless energy. I have improved my listening skills, my ability to pick up on body language, and how to adapt my approach to fit the group of people that I'm interacting with. I really appreciate the way our improv class is structured, in that I am able to get introduced to a skill, practice it, and discuss how it can be applied to me professional (and personal!) life. Furthermore, I've been able to forge relationships with other Rioters that I wouldn't generally be able to work with.

Improv Queen!! I cant say enough about Rachel! I learned a ton from her Improv training and left knowing more about myself and my team than I ever thought I would. Since her departure, I feel that I can effectively communicate and contribute to meetings and interviews more confidently than I did before Improv.

I recently had the opportunity to attend one of Rachel's improv workshops. The activities were wonderfully empowering, and definitely a giant leap out of my comfort zone. I had a great time, and also gained valuable insights into my interpersonal interactions.

Rachel introduced me to the world of Improv, which allowed me to grow confidence in public speaking and learn different communication styles that cater to a variety of audiences and personalities. Rachel facilitated short improv games that were not only fun, but also tested ones mental agility and adaptability. She also hosted a learning and development program that gave a deeper insight to improv and how it could apply to the business world as well as theatre. These workshops encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone, and explore creative ways to express an idea whilst collaborating with others. Her passion in sharing this unique skill is reflected in her initiative to teach and her dedication to keep them really fun and engaging. I had so much fun attending these classes and I am absolutely grateful that I had the opportunity to learn from Rachel!

Rachel brought improv to Riot in a variety of contexts, including recurring drop-in sessions for all levels (focused on low-pressure activities that get your brain going and help develop more broadly applicable skills like listening and attention), 6-8 week beginner-intermediate classes that included more scene work and built on concepts week to week, and team-building-focused sessions with individual teams or disciplines. Participating in Rachel’s classes has been a ton of fun, and a great learning opportunity. Rachel made the classes feel welcoming and unintimidating, and provided a great foundation for both the scenework aspect of improv as well as how the concepts are applicable in day-to-day life/work. During the longer class, she encouraged us to set and reflect on personal goals related to how some of the concepts we were learning in the class could apply to our work, which ended up being extremely valuable for me. And I always look forward to the drop-in sessions for a great mental energy boost! I really appreciate that Rachel has set up such a fun and engaging improv community here.

Rachel brings a ton of passion into her work and contagious energy from the second you meet her. I had the privilege of taking her Fundamentals of Improv courses and found great value in them from a professional and personal perspective. Namely, in maintaining presence. We're all wildly busy, but improv forces you to address what's happening right now, with no room for second-guessing, filtering, or judging what happens. I learned to actively listen and build on the ideas of others, and while it is indeed intimidating to run in the playground of uncertainty, I always had a blast with these workshops and thank Rachel for helping me grow in confidence and creativity.

Rachel is sure to be a positive and creative force within any company, bringing her unique program and project management skills with her. I attended an Improv course created and taught by Rachel that from my perspective was a huge success in unlocking the potential of each individual that attended. Rachel and I also worked for a time on an interviewer training project at Riot Games to train and assess the ability of new technical interviewers that eventually launched into a bigger program. Rachel is a pleasure to collaborate with and her cheerful attitude is sure to put a smile on your face!

I was fortunate to have attended the Improv Training that Rachel created for our Recruiting team. It was by far the most enjoyable corporate training that I have been a part of. Rachel has full command of her subject and she leads in a way that is both collaborative and highly engaging. Her impish English wit and her passion for improv created a true learning environment that allowed for individual development and team wins. And did I mention it was a blast?!
