    When you think of “improv” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Comedy? Wit? “I could never do that?” You aren’t alone. Yet, companies and business schools regularly employ improv training. Google “improv business” and you’ll receive 17 million results, many from sources like Forbes, Harvard Business Review, and Fast Company. Even the TD Magazine included an article in June 2017, Setting the Stage for Employee Success Through Improv.

    Why is improv so popular with the business world? Because the same principles that make improv comedy work also help teams cultivate skills in collaboration, communication, creativity, and more.

    Find out for yourself. Join us for an interactive, fun, and low-pressure introduction to the basics of improv for business teams. No experience is necessary and there’s no need to be funny. You’ll come away with practical applications and a newfound appreciation for how improv empowers any team – including yours.

    Jon delivered this session at the 2018 GCATD conference. It drew more than 35 participants and received an average feedback rating of 9.54 out of 10.
