Agency Team Building | Workshop

Team Building With the Upright Citizens Brigade

Get your team to be faster on their feet with the help of our world-class instructors. We use improv comedy and storytelling techniques to help agency teams communicate, connect and collaborate better. It’s ideal for new groups who don’t know each other well, as well as seasoned teams who want to shake things up. These kinds of workshops are great for off-sites, sales events, annual meetings and parties. All our team-building workshops are customized and can be structured to meet specific agency communication goals. You tell us what you need, and we’ll make it happen. (And it’ll be fun!)


What You Will Learn

  • How to be a better listener
  • The creative power of “Yes, and…”
  • How to build and convey trust with colleagues
  • The secret to stronger, richer, faster ideas


Workshop Structure

  • Typically, this workshop runs between 90 and 120 minutes for up to 20 participants. They are highly interactive, structured around a series of exercises, and run by one instructor.
  • For larger groups (up to 500), we offer this program as a UCB Masterclass. Here, we work from a stage and bring individuals up from the audience to participate in exercises. The first segment lasts for 60 minutes; the second segment is a 30-minute performance based on what was learned during the Masterclass.
  • Three to four instructors typically run a UCB Masterclass.
