NEW YORK — TrivWorks, a corporate team-building company specializing in live trivia events, has joined forces with corporate trainer and improvisation coach Rob Schiffmann to create a line of interactive workplace training programs, it was announced Sept. 29.
Focusing on critical workplace skills, this new line of courses includes seminars on communication, presentation, feedback, leadership and narrative. All five courses will feature a fast-paced combination of icebreakers, lectures and practical games and exercises utilizing short-form improvisation, as well as team trivia challenges tailored to specific groups and goals. Each course is available as a two-hour, half-day, full-day or multi-day program, and may be held as either a standalone class or in combination with other programs in the series.
“Now more than ever, companies need fun and effective training programs which will hold employees’ attention and make an impact,” said TrivWorks founder David Jacobson.
Established in New York City in 2009, TrivWorks is a corporate team-building company specializing in live trivia events. Providing customization, event emcees and service industry expertise, TrivWorks offers celebrity hosts, comedians, magicians, improvisers, karaoke, DJs and more.
In summer 2016, TrivWorks expanded by opening an office in Long Beach, Calif.
Rob Schiffmann is a veteran corporate trainer, facilitator and program developer with over 20 years experience. An award-winning professional improviser, seasoned event emcee and experienced game show host, his background and expertise make him uniquely qualified to lead this new program series.
“I am excited for the marriage of trivia and improvisational skill building. Both involve listening, being present and staying on your toes. Audiences should be prepared to learn — and have a blast doing it,” he said.
