Client Testimonials

Steve’s presentation for our team and Old-Timer’s day are my 2 favorite days of the year!

Nick Swisher
Former New York Yankee and current Cleveland Indian

These unique improv games have helped make my transition from an amateur athlete to a professional golfer so much easier and I am so much more confident communicating and interviewing.

Paula Creamer
2005 LPGA Rookie of the Year

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.

Pete Sampras
Tennis Hall of Famer

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!

Abby Wambach
2 Time Olympic Gold Medalist and 2011 AP Female Athlete of the Year

After working with game on, I was fully prepared 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.

Alex Smith
2005 NFL #1 overall draft pick

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.
