Become your best self.

Become a better presenter. Develop stronger bonds with work- and teammates. Leave more interviews smiling. Learn to laugh at life and yourself. Negotiate bigger salaries. Tell better stories. Get people to like you.

These are all benefits to improving your soft skills.

I can help.

Below are a few of the lesson plans I currently offer. If you see something you like (or even if you don’t see something but want help anyway), hit me up at jmflamm @ gmail dot com.

The judgment-free zone that I create with these particular classes are meant to help people accelerate their learning by doing. No powerpoint presentation needed, instead we focus on developing skills that enable you to connect quickly, listen actively, and speak without fear.

Can be taught to groups or individuals and help improve:

  • Job interview skills

  • Public speaking and presentation skills

  • Confidence and interpersonal skills

  • Adding humor and personality

  • Overall soft skills

  • Team cohesiveness

  • …and much more.


sketch or Improv comedy performance

If you’re interested in performing or want to improve you (or your team’s) performance, I can help. I’ve been performing improv and sketch comedy since 2011 with well over 200 live shows under my belt. I have a list of services that I offer for both improv and sketch (for individuals and teams).

My experience:

For improv, I learned under Bill Chott (from The Dana Carvey Show) at the Improv Trick-St. Louis, and I graduated the multi level program of The Improv Shop. I’ve been fortunate to be apart of workshops by Jimmy Carrane (Improv Nerd), David Koechner (Anchorman, The Office), Susan Messing (iO theater), Laura and Rick Hall (Whose Line is it Anyway?) and many more.

For sketch comedy, I started my first ever sketch team The Last Sketch Comedy Show on Earth back in 2011 simply because I had never done sketch before and wanted to learn how to do it. We held our last show on December 21, 2012… the day the world was supposed to end. It didn’t, but our sketch team did. In 2014, I started Sketchpad® Comedy. A comedy organization dedicated to helping anyone and everyone learn how to write and perform sketch comedy.

Through sketch comedy I’ve been fortunate to learn from some of the absolute best, including Kevin McDonald (Kids in the Hall), Rich Talarico (Key and Peele, Review), Michael McCarthy (SNL) and Andel Sudik (The Second City).

If any of these services interest you, or you feel like there’s something you need that I missed, contact me at jmflamm @ gmail dot com.
