ABOUT IMPROVYOU

Meet KRISTIAN

Kristian is fuelled by a passion for authentic connections, individual empowerment, and the transformative journey of self-development. In 2016, he founded ImprovYou, an innovative soft skills training organisation that sets itself apart by seamlessly blending educational principles with engaging improvised learning activities.

As the visionary founder, Kristian has cultivated a unique approach to communication training at ImprovYou, aiming to inspire transformation through genuine connection and interactive experiences that empower individuals to reclaim their confidence.

Before venturing into the realm of self-development and training, Kristian dedicated 20 years to the corporate world, navigating roles in the insurance industry. Seeking a more impactful path, he made the pivotal decision to transition to founding ImprovYou. This shift reflects Kristian’s commitment to making a difference in the lives of others and leveraging his extensive corporate experience for a greater purpose.
