Take advantage of changeTM

Change within a company

isn’t an open threat,

it’s an offer

So take it.

You have everything to gain.

 At Clean Slate we create customized UnScripted designs that address different issues within different organizations faced with the same inevitability —


 As someone who’s been keynoting and running workshops – exposing groups to their unconscious attitudes and cracking their assumptions as they deal with unexpected challenges like acquisitions, new tech, fresh competition, whatever the issue – I can tell you:

The reason unexpected change is painful is because not only do we not trust the new uncertainty of our surroundings, we also don’t trust ourselves to handle it.

 My job is to prove to you that whatever happens… you got this.

 Because life will never cease to throw its curveballs. But something truly remarkable happens when you go Unscripted and throw a curveball right back.

How did I get here…?


I’m a recovering corporate executive, an ex-VP of Marketing and HR, where I was the busy type with the razor focus and the endless cycle of rotting take-out in the fridge.

I worked 100 plus hours a week, slept in fragmented chunks, and stayed in my lane with the pedal to the floor. We’ve all felt those situations where something’s gotta give. Well, sometimes the something is you. And that breaking point can be a busted hole in the ship or, in my case back then… a quiet tapping in the dark.

One night I sat in my office after hours reading about an open class for improv, the goal being to get out the door one day a week by 7:00 pm. With a tap of the mouse, I was enrolled.

Sometimes our choices, even small ones, to venture off our usual script aren’t just about “making a change.” They’re about accepting that the current situation doesn’t work. And engaging with the reality of what is.

In improv, you can’t rehearse. All you have is the moment, and tuning in is your only playbook. In improv, there’s no backing down from the chaos, and your role is necessary in the uncertainty… so pay attention.

The circumstances are what they are.

Rejection of those circumstances isn’t an option.

YES is the only destiny.

And we have everything we need to make an offering to the moment.

I ended up going all the way with improv. Around the same time that I earned my Executive MBA I graduated from the famous Second City Improvisation program because, just like work and business I take improv seriously.

Today in my own company, I mesh the concepts and creeds of improv and problem solving into my customized designs for client-work that address different issues within different organizations faced with the same inevitability…


Change within a company isn’t an open threat, it’s an offer.

So what are you willing to gain?
