The Path to ImprovThis!

Steve tells his story about ImprovThis and how he came to create the workshops.

Our Team – About Us
Steve Duberchin, President and CEO of ImprovThis
  • For the past few decades, I’ve held many roles which my MBA has successfully prepared me for.  I’ve had fun working in corporate America and was privileged to work for Fortune 50 and the Ad Age 50 companies over the years.  Because I wanted to be a jack-of-all-trades in my career, when I was looking to change jobs I went after positions which followed my professional curiosity.  Those roles brought me through a diverse array of departments over the years including finance, information technology, product development, project management, and I finally ended up in marketing strategy. It turns out, this wide-ranging work history is paying dividends for me now that I’m working with clients in so many diverse industries.

Questions and answers with Steve about ImprovThis, training and other tidbits:

What did you want to accomplish when you started ImprovThis!?

When I did my research and looked at the state of corporate training, I saw a bunch of options available to companies.  The deeper I looked, the more I thought I had a unique background and approach to corporate training, one that no-one else really had.   
I wanted to create a fun, energizing, and creative set of workshops where people could learn to communicate in a passionate way and build closer, more collaborative teams everywhere in their lives.

Wait a minute.  You’re just making this up as you go?

Do you have us ask for a suggestion and then tell jokes about… say… a banana?

Is ImprovThis! going to put on an improvised comedy show for us?
