Trust-Building Workshop

This transformational storytelling workshop is the perfect virtual or in-person session for teams who are looking to build trust and connect with each other on a deeper level. Throughout the 75-90 minute interactive experience, IN-Q takes your team on a poetic journey into what’s stopping them from living up to their fullest potential and stepping into their personal power.

He motivates the group through his spoken word and life stories, leading them from performance, into writing and sharing exercises, specifically designed to create a safe and supportive environment where people can be vulnerable from a place of strength. It is a truly unforgettable experience that will leave your team feeling grateful and connected far beyond the session.

“…incredibly effective way to form real connection with your team.”

“…I was new to the team, but after hearing everyone’s poems I felt so much closer to these people — even closer than I had to a team I’d worked with for 3+ years at my last job.”

“…far-and-away the coolest things I’ve ever done at work. We laughed with each other and the poems that everyone wrote made me feel close to people in a way we hadn’t ever felt before — even after working together for years…”

Custom Poem + Keynote Performance

IN-Q will write a one of a kind, fully customized poem for your brand, company, or campaign. He will work with your team to craft the vision for this piece by including any language or messaging that helps tell your larger story. If you have an upcoming event, IN-Q can memorize and perform this tailored poem within a virtual or in-person keynote meant to motivate your team and remind them of their deeper purpose. This piece can also be turned into branded content like the videos below. He has done this for companies including VFC (Vans), A&E, Cirque du Soleil, and many more, and the response has been truly incredible. This is the most highly personalized creative experience IN-Q offers.

“IN-Q’s performance was a very powerful moment for us. He brilliantly gave voice to the spirit of Cirque, brought us all together around a shared vision of what we could create, and inspired us to reach into ourselves. He is the best in the world at his art and we can’t wait to partner with him again.
