Networking with a Twist!

Our networking events are structured with icebreakers, speed networking and group games that take the awkwardness out of networking. Immerse yourself in a new environment, make new professional contacts or friends, learn new skills and grow!

Creative Team Building 

Our team building programs use innovative games and challenges to help teams or groups form deeper connections and improve communication, creativity, listening, teamwork, problem-solving, 

risk-taking and spontaneity skills.

Connect & Create Workshops

A networking event combined with an artistic activity like painting. Learn a new skill while meeting new people and getting to know them on a below-the-surface level!

Story & Team

Linda

ACC-ICF Certified Creativity, Confidence & Brainstorming Coach 

Improviser & film writer & producer

A few years ago, I was stressed, overworked and unhappy.  I was also really shy. I overcame shyness by trying improv.  This helped me gain confidence and push myself to take a one-year sabbatical from my 9-5 accounting job. I moved to Paris, pushed my boundaries, indulged in my passions of screenwriting and improv, said "yes" to everything, and achieved my dream of writing and producing a short film.

Kim

Travel, Bucket List & Career Change Coach

Writer & Speaker 

TEFL Certified Teacher

I was also overworked and felt stuck and unfulfilled working in software marketing. I knew I could do more and felt the urge to get the most out of life. So, I decided to take some time off to travel. I went to live Europe and Asia, met people from all walks of life and pushed myself to do things I never thought I would do. 

 After our creative breaks, we both felt rejuvenated, learned a lot, and became more creative, meaning better at working, leading, adapting, innovating and seeing things through different point of views. We said “everyone should feel this way!”

​My Creative Break was initially born to help people feel this way – we motivated people to take breaks to do things for themselves. ​ Then, people asked us, “how did you push yourselves to become these better versions of yourselves?” ​

 

Our workshops and events help people work on this using our “secret ingredients” – theatrical games and creative activities that foster connection and growth. We bring people together to network, have fun, work on new skills, and get the support and motivation they need. We also work with organizations and help teams work on communication, collaboration and problem-solving skills using creativity and team bonding exercises.

"We met Kim and Linda at one of their Creative Networking events, and loved their format and energy. We brought them in to run a team building exercise. The session was fun, creative, engaging and the team loved the sense of play they brought. They brought out a creative side of  my team that has since helped with collaboration and teamwork.
I love what they do and how they go about it."
