June 24, 2005


WASHINGTON, DC, June 24, 2005. BossaNova Consulting Group, a distinctive company that provides consulting expertise to consulting organizations, announced the successful delivery of "Improv Night," an extraordinary learning experience for its client Touchstone Consulting Group.

"We were looking for a way to sharpen our edge, bring fresh ideas to the ways we work with clients, and just generally re-charge our batteries. BossaNova's 'Improv Night' was the perfect fit," said Jane Soraghan, Touchstone's director of training and development. "At one point, one of our consultants burst into song with 'I got spurs that jingle jangle jingle' ... while another confessed 'I'm a little teapot' and another informed us that 'it's the end of the world as we know it!' Amidst all the laughter, our consultants really learned how to think on their feet, which is a critical skill in our business."

BossaNova's Shawn Westfall, who is the exclusive teacher of improv comedy classes at the DC Improv, led this very special evening. Shawn has performed improvisational comedy for ten years with several professional improv troupes, including Loose Screws in Honolulu, Hawaii and The Oxymorons, a nationally recognized improv troupe in San Antonio. Two years ago, Shawn pioneered a series of beginning, intermediate, and advanced improvisational comedy workshops at the DC Improv. In 2004, Shawn's classes were prominently featured on the front page of the Style section of The Washington Post.

Said BossaNova's President and Founder, Andrea Howe, "Performing improv comedy is not only incredibly fun, but offers the ultimate in being creative, engaging, and 'in the moment' - imperative skills for consultants. Improv is also one of the most profound ways to learn about teaming I have ever experienced."
