Nicole Faust Cohen is an experienced business leader and lifelong student and practitioner of the performing arts. She also has training and experience in both scripted performances, as well as the dynamic world of improvisational comedy. Ms. Cohen is a managing director at a global consulting company. Spending time with dozens of companies, she has seen both incredible collaborations, as well as those stifled by professionals who seemed to have forgotten that the journey towards greatness is as important as the greatness itself. Equally important, the journey may affect how great the outcomes can be.

Outside her industry work, Ms. Cohen creates and leads workshops on the topic of bringing the rules of improvisational comedy to the workplace, for the purpose of creating the most collaborative and innovative work environment possible. In those sessions, themes and topics are addressed based on the needs of the group or team but examples explored include but are not limited to:
- Leading with a growth mindset
- Building professional relationships to optimize collaboration and innovation
- Becoming the best workplace where we bring the best out of ourselves and others
Ms. Cohen graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering and a Theme in Fine Arts/Theatre. It was in college where she became exposed to improvisational comedy, cast in an improv group called Titanic Players alongside a mighty cast of hilarious actors, who performed regularly. Today, Ms. Cohen is an International Best Selling Author with Improv at Work: What the Business World Can Learn from Improvisational Comedy. In addition to leading workshops with global leadership teams, she has also spoken on podcasts, radio programming, Northwestern Alumni Association webcast series and at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women.
