Our Story:

A Spark to Help Others Inspired the Launch of Fuse - Igniting Communication

Before launching Fuse - Igniting Communication, founder Tracy Graf held senior marketing, communications, and project management roles with prominent international corporations. 


“In 2015, my boss, the CMO (now CEO) of Vail Resorts, asked me to take on a leadership project to deliver Think on Your Feet®, a workshop teaching how to communicate with ‘Clarity, Brevity, and Impact®’, to our 300-person marketing team. I discovered a new passion for facilitating communications skills workshops that help others interact more effectively and efficiently.” 


In 2018, recognizing that so many organizations struggle to communicate effectively, Tracy harnessed her previous communications leadership experience to start Fuse - Igniting Communication. We teach professionals of all levels powerful and effective communications skills, via workshops that improve interactions for a healthier, more productive workplace.  

Today, Fuse - Igniting Communication offers a variety of virtual, in-classroom, or outdoor workshops which improve workplace communication skills in the areas of:


- Team Collaboration

- Transformational Leadership

- Partnership Development

Our trainers are certified in dozens of learning and development tools and programs to improve workplace communication which inspires team collaboration, leadership and partnership development. 

As big fans of lifelong learning, we continue to gain accreditations to provide our clients with the best workshop experiences possible. Here is a list of our current ones ...
