  • Who is Belina Raffy?

    The empress and director of Maffick Ltd, Applied Improvisation and Thrivability

    thought-leader, Thrivable World Quest co-founder and global captain.


    She used to work for a big bank in London and New York and saw a bunch

    of people burning out. She thought 'there's got to be a better way

    than this.' and did an MBA at Cranfield School of Management to

    relax and regroup.


    She started studying and applying improvisation skills to work.

    Skills which help us to navigate uncertainty, co-create deeply.


    Her work is increasingly exploring how we might totally transform

    our organisations so that we (and the organisations we are in)

    serve life beautifully. Belina believes improvisation is vital for

    what the world is facing now - and it is her passion to spread

    these mindsets, practices and skills as much as possible, as

    well as to support others who do this with breathtaking ability.


    And oh, she is writing this book called

    Using Improv to Save the World (and me) ...

    Some lovely feedback we got from our clients.

    Darshita Gillies

    Entrepreneur and Global System Integrator, on our Sustainable Stand Up

    “The concept is beautiful ... the ability to learn the art to articulate very

    tricky, boring, serious stuff in a fun way is definitely a skill to have ...

    I love the approach - it is very inviting.”

    Caron Bradshaw

    Chief Executive at Charity Finance Group (CFG), on our Applied Improvisation

    “So many different trainers and experts that I’ve seen over the years will go:

    “Here is my programme”. And whatever you talk to them about they will be coming back to their default, this is my programme, this is how I’m doing it. But what Belina does is a much more of a listening approach that genuinely tries to understand what the problem is that you are seeking to resolve and then co-creates with you a resolution for it and not imposes just a different way of saying “This is my solution.” ..”

    Julian Giacomelli

    President of RISE Kombucha Inc., on our Thrivable World

    “We worked with Belina on several internal thrivability-focussed meetings and workshops, as well as on an eco-system event. In the workshops, we helped give voice to everyone in the company on how we might better align ourselves more fully with nature, and with a way of working, that feels alive, meaningful and inspiring. In our ecosystem event, we had our whole company, supporters, customers, suppliers, artists, and musicians come together to celebrate and embody how our company works and dream with us what comes next. The insights gained from these meetings, workshops, and the event were invaluable."
