Give Me 8 Evenings Online and I'll Teach You to Think on Your Feet with Confidence

Learn to feel at ease with public speaking, job interviews, dating, and more... even if you're super shy!


How Many of These 7 Problems Plague You?

If you're like most of my students, you don't want to become an actor or comedian. Instead, you want to overcome some or all of these problems:

  • Public speaking makes you panic and go blank.
  • Shyness and social anxiety stop you from meeting people.
  • You feel uncreative, especially in the spotlight.
  • Self doubt holds you back.
  • You get stuck in your head and can't be in the moment.
  • You're afraid you're dull when you talk.
  • The unexpected causes you stress.

These problems can hold you back in your career, prevent you from making new friends, and put the brakes on your romantic life. Besides that, they just leave you feeling stuck and unhappy.

Luckily, you've come to the right place to find solutions, so keep reading...

Marcela Castillo-Rama

Professor at Berklee


"I took two improv courses with Chad during the covid pandemic! I have to say that initially I was a little skeptical about taking an improv course via zoom, but the courses were AMAZING."


Why are Online Classes Better?

Here are some benefits of doing classes online:

  • No commute. This can save you hours of time and hassle, and even save you from having to miss classes.
  • Sharper focus. Fewer distractions mean students pay closer attention and learn more.
  • More efficient. Virtual classrooms offer several features that allow us to move at a faster pace.
  • Modern training. Much communication is online now. If you want to thrive, it's best to learn these skills that way, too. And I've designed this training to guarantee you know how to communicate effectively both in person and online.
  • Fewer nerves. Students have told me it took them a year to get up the courage to sign up for classes. If you feel terrified, taking classes online can be easier and less intimidating.

Thanks to these and other perks, online classes are a fast and effective way to learn. Now, you may be wondering, how exactly do online classes work?

Senior Web Developer


“I thoroughly enjoyed the improv class with Chad (so much so that I'm taking it again). The online sessions were perfect for learning and practicing skills for conversation, storytelling, and public speaking.”


How Do Online Classes Work?

We'll do three main things during the classes:

  • Explanation. I'll teach various ideas to you and your classmates. Luckily, I use a variety of tricks to avoid long periods of lecture. That way we can maximize the time you spend practicing the skills.
  • Practice. I'll team you up with one or two of your classmates to play games that build the skills you need. Thanks to Zoom's "Breakout Rooms" feature, this is easy. I just tell Zoom how many people to put in each virtual room and poof! I can even visit the room where you're practicing to see how you and your partner are doing and offer useful feedback.
  • Demo. I'll also have you and your classmates play these games in front of the class. This is vital, because it helps you overcome your fears of being in the spotlight. But don't worry, I go out of my way to make this safe, fun, easy, and supportive.

It's that simple: explanation, practice, and demo. That's all you need to become a more confident, effective communicator!

Luckily, the next series of classes starts soon...

“I took this course to practice creative thinking, challenge myself, and 'get uncomfortable' - it did all of these! Chad is a patient, passionate, adaptive instructor. He loves what he does and he'll make you love it, too.”


Who is Chad Elliot?

"Because I struggled, you won't have to."

My father died when I was young, so my mother raised three kids on her own. Being a shy homeschooled kid, I wound up mostly friendless and alone.

As an adult, everything was a struggle. Since I lacked confidence and communication skills, I failed in more ways than anyone has a right to fail. I even got turned down for a job because during the interview I was slow at thinking on my feet. (Not promising for a future improvisation teacher!)

It took years of effort, but I finally learned how to enjoy public speaking, feel at ease talking with new people, and communicate confidently.

That's good news for you. Since I had to learn everything from scratch, I know how to teach the same skills to you in a step-by-step approach. I've spent over 5 years perfecting how to teach those skills in a way that's simple, fun, and engaging.

That's why I've been featured in:

And it's why I've been hired to teach by such companies as:

The bottom line: I've worked with hundreds of people of all ability levels, and I've refined what I teach so that you'll laugh a lot, learn quickly, and get results.

“I learned techniques on how to have deeper and more fascinating conversations with anyone and went from nervous to confident speaking in front of a group. I recommend to anyone trying to take their social skills to the next level.”

Ginger Scarbrough

Program Manager


“I wouldn't have guessed that Improv could help people so much personally, but I saw it with my own eyes and heart—On the first day of class, I saw new students enter the classroom tentative and unsure, then 8 weeks later, they were much more confident and had gained so many new skills.”

Diane Ho Buxton

Bookkeeper


“I took Chad's class to get better at public speaking and learn to speak more spontaneously, and the class exceeded my expectations.”

FAQ

What's covered in the classes?

Each class in the series has a different focus and builds on previous classes. Here's a brief listing of what we cover each week:

Week 1: How to Think Creatively Under Pressure.
Week 2: How to Avoid 7 Common Mistakes.
Week 3: How to Give a Powerful Presentation.
Week 4: How to Tell Captivating Stories.
Week 5: How to Unleash Your Charisma by Mastering Nonverbal Communication.
Week 6: How to Enjoy Deeper, More Engaging Conversations.
Week 7:
How to Get Out of Your Head and Be In the Moment.
Week 8: The Most Powerful Exercise You'll Ever Experience.

While each week has a different focus, ideas do get revisited. For example, nonverbal communication is the focus of the fifth class, but we'll also work on it in most of the other classes.


Plus, you'll get tons of fun practice with each skill through simple improv games. That means, as you learn to handle everything from interviews to presentations, you'll build your ability to think on your feet creatively, too.

How does this compare to other classes?

It's unlike than anything else out there. It's far more practical than regular improv classes. It's far more fun and active than regular communication or public speaking classes. And much of the material simply isn't available elsewhere, because I designed it and refined it to meet the needs of my students.

What if I have to miss a class?

Most people have to miss a class or two during the series. I understand and designed the series with that in mind. Naturally, it's best to attend as many classes as you can. But missing one or two won't stop you from getting phenomenal benefits from the overall series.

Is it okay if I'm not a native English speaker?

Many of my students over the years have spoken English as a second language. They've always done very well in the classes.

While your English skills don't have to be perfect, you do have to be conversational. You need to be able to understand most of what people say in English. And you need to be able to speak it well enough to be understood most of the time.

Can I drop into a single class?

No, the classes are meant to be done as a series. You wouldn't get the same experience if you just joined a single class. Also, there are a limited number of spots, and they're reserved for students who commit to the entire series. If people came for just a class or two, the class size would fluctuate dramatically and it would hurt everyone's experience.


But remember, once you finish the series, if you aren't satisfied with the results, you can get a complete refund.

What if I sign up but can't attend for some reason?

While I offer a complete refund if you attend the series and aren't satisfied, I can't promise a refund if you simply don't show up. There are a limited number of spots and the classes sell out. So if you sign up but don't attend, it takes a spot away from somebody else.


If you sign up for the classes and discover later that you won't be able to attend, let me know as soon as possible. If I can fill your spot with someone else, I'm happy to give you a refund or transfer you to a later series.
