Gary Ware

Founder, Breakthrough Play

Gary Ware is the Founder of Breakthrough Play, a company that helps teams be more creative, confident, and collaborative using play. To do this, Gary incorporates techniques that professional improvisers use to create amazing experiences without a script. Gary has been in the marketing and advertising industry for over a decade and first got into improvisation as a way to better his public speaking. Gary quickly found that improv and play could be a solution to various business challenges, so he started doing workshops for his team and other people in his network. This side project turned into a full-time gig after he stepped down from the agency that he co-founded. When Gary isn't leading workshops and keynote speaking he could be found doing improv at Finest City Improv in North Park, learning magic, or playing with his wife Courtney and son Garrett.
