Jon Trevor delivered a fantastic, unexpected and truly rewarding session. What on the surface felt like ‘play’ was valuable in helping the group understand how we can work positively and effectively both individually and within our teams and organisations. Well worth investing in.

A big thank you to you, Jon.  What a great way to inaugurate our learning and collaborative space. It was a memorable experience which was also very appropriate for us in that, like what we wish to do in our new building, it involved people being able to express themselves explicitly in a supportive environment.   The simple exercises were provocative and energising at the same time.  I am still thinking about this…


I was skeptical about the session at first, but after 20 minutes I was enjoying myself. I was surprised how useful and applicable the activities and lessons were.


I learnt that as GPs we need to spend time listening more to patients, and responding and acting on their words, as opposed to using our own words. Lot’s of fun – did not stop smiling all afternoon.  Thank you!

I think the lessons of the day will be realised not immediately but in years to come as the trainees mature, they will realise the  benefits and lessons of the day.  Just like Mr Miyagi from the original Karate Kid film where his student performed mundane chores such as cleaning a car with “Wax on, Wax off” and was secretly preparing him with this unorthodox method.  Likewise, with Applied Improvisation the lessons are immediately less tangible, but the skills elicited will prove to being applicable to our  clinical work as well as having potential benefits for our personal relationships with colleagues, families and spouses.

Really enjoyable session – left our team laughing, smiling, positive and united.  Definitely food for thought.

Thanks, Jon, you made what was quite a sombre team smile again and appreciate each other.
