This amazing program has helped our men and women in uniform learn tangible job interview and life skills so they are prepared for the transition to life as a civilian.

Alexandra Volp

The work game on does with us doesn’t seem like ‘work’ at all to this team – and the positive message of communication with humor and honesty is so important in a long season. We look forward every year to game on’s spring training sessions.

Joe Girardi
Manager, New York Yankees

Great communication training from @steveshenbaum & @gameonNATION with our team. It even impacted our practice later in the day. Fun time.

I wish this program was offered when I was younger.

My heart is so full of joy and it truly has so much to do with your presentation. I’ve sat through countless meetings and I must say that your originality, humor, and passion was so well received and totally appreciated by all. I LOVED IT!

game on helped me prepare for all interviews at the NFL Draft without sounding rehearsed. I highly recommend this program for all athletes. Improvisation is one of the best ways to learn and these instructors are dynamic people.

After working with Steve and the game on staff I realized I didn’t have to be serious in every interview. They helped me use my sense of humor to relax on and off the field.
