What our clients say

The Maydays’ show was definitely the highlight of our event. They got the mood of the audience immediately and presented a great, high level show which was both clever and extremely funny at the same time. Best of all was their enormous sense of fun, which was completely contagious for the audience.

Tomas Marcenaro Lynx Global Brand Director Unilever

The Maydays’ performance was the highlight of our clergy conference – hilarious, clever and pitched perfectly for the audience. They enthralled us by turning our suggestions and comments into comic turns and songs. The laughter never stopped and it was all totally appropriate – slightly cheeky but never offensive. They got the audience on their side from the start, and the mood of happiness and delight lingered long after they’d left the stage.

The Rt Revd Graham James Bishop of Norwich Church of England

It was never going to be an easy task doing an active activity with a bunch of hungover grumpy individuals, but the session was super fun – crazy how she instantly knew everyone’s names! After all the fun, it was great to sit down and reflect on the cultural values and see that there were quite a few at play in the session. I also took other learnings from the session (‘yes but’ is easy by default, but maybe we can approach other peoples’ ideas as ‘yes and’). Nice!

Business improv FAQs

Does improv training work with introverts?

People are often amazed to find out that a good two-thirds of The Maydays consider themselves to be introverted. Improvisation in many ways transcends that, and when we run a session, we play to the introverts in the room. Usually they come out with the funniest stuff, and the value of the quietest member of the team becomes apparent to everyone.

So yes, improv works particularly well with introverts. And that doesn’t mean we’re trying to get introverts to pop out the other end of the training as extroverts. No, we like them as they are, we respect that and we work with them at their own level of comfort.

How customised is customised?

We spend a lot of time talking with you in the lead up to the event. Whilst our core offering has an awful lot to offer, we like to make it special and personal every time.

The Maydays Corporate Training Experiences are tailored in 3 ways, according to:

  • the expressed needs of the organisation’s L&D team
  • the emergent characteristics and personality types within the group
  • the mood in the room on the day
