Charlotte De Metsenaere
Communication expert, international improvisational theater teacher and public speaking coach
There are not enough words to describe Charlotte: enthusiasm, energy, humor, flexibility, daring to take risks, creativity, curiosity, cooperation, trust, acceptance, connecting, active listening and authenticity are some of them.
Communication and improvisational theater are Charlotte's two passions. Both worlds have so much to learn from each other. Strength lies in the combination of theatre and business. The overlap between them is where her work starts. To teach companies to learn to play again, with joy, laughter and innocence. But just as well, to bring them to insights about flexibility, assertiveness, leading, following, listening, connecting, how to better communicate and other soft skills just by the use of theater exercises.
Charlotte's teambuilding workshop is what drives people together in laughter and creativity in a way they haven’t experienced before. Her communication workshop goes more in-depth to theoretical insights, while still learning by doing.
Thanks to her academic background (Master in Business Communication), she effortlessly combines the experiential learning of the improvisation game with important communication principles, such as giving feedback, speaking in front of an audience, performing under pressure, customer focus or authentic leadership.
Apart from communication and soft skills, Charlotte is also passionate about social topics like society, diversity, gender awareness,... and she's not only an enthusiastic speaker, trainer, coach, but also a great host and moderator.

Online Teambuilding based on improvisational theatre
Now, more than ever, there is a need for connection. Checking in together with a smile and a wink feels like in a distant past. We can not bring back cozy chats at the coffee machine, but we can help your team relax and laugh together and feel connected.
Charlotte puts a smile on the face of your team members. See each other at work in a creative way, let go for a moment and connect. Through humor and fun games inspired by improvisational theatre.
You don't play scenes or will be taught theatre and no one is put under pressure. It's just fun, bonding and spending feel-good time with the team!
This teambuilding is unique because everyone, yes really everyone, get involved and enjoy together.
Spotlight on Feedback
This online workshop focuses on people who give regular feedback and want to refine this skill.
The approach is practice-oriented, with every participant practicing.
We start on the basis of realistic situations and reflecting on everyone's personal strengths and working points.
No extensive theory, but a very practical and experienced-based workshop, where knowledge is immediately put into practice: what is working and what is not?
Founded on psychology and evidence-based insights on the one hand and improvisation theatre techniques on the other hand.
Your collaborators and managers will be able to bring in real-life cases to train their feedback skills.
This teambuilding is unique because participants really practice their feedback skills. Learning by doing.
