Nose to Nose at the Nowhere conference

Laughter is the shortest distance between two people
Victor Borge

Social Clowning at a ‘Creative Dialogue’ organised by the Nowhere Academy in London in September 2010. The Creative Dialogues bring together business leaders and organisational practitioners in innovative and participatory ways to examine together leading edge issues for today’s organisations and for society. This particular dialogue focussed on ‘Unleashing the Creative Power of Teams’. Sharon Usher and Vivian Gladwell of Nose to Nose attended the day as participants and then came on as clowns to improvise with some of the material of the day. Here is a flavour of the day!


Summarise your meetings, business events or conferences in an intelligent, relevant and entertaining way.

Nose to Nose come as your guests (not as clowns). We listen, observe and take part. Then, at agreed moments during the event, we perform a 10 minute comic skit to summarise the day. There can be up to four such skits during a day event.

We bring new and creative ways of looking at your issues that will get you talking to each other differently.

If you want to know more email Nose to Nose and we will gladly talk with you. For a little peek at our work, see the video above.
