Webinar: IMPROV FOR THE BUSINESS STAGE
12 PM on October 30
Presented by Kat Koppett
Improvisational actors make up scenes, songs, stories and plays on-the-spot, collaboratively, with no script or pre-planning. To succeed at this high-stakes task, improvisers have developed philosophies and techniques that can be applied to any environment where people interact, collaborate and create. Let’s face it, we are all improvising all the time. And increasingly, in our fast-moving and unpredictable world, solid improvisational skills are a powerful asset…and a growing necessity.
In this session, Kat will share tips and exercises to increase flexibility, influence, courage and performance range. We guarantee at least one fresh insight and a laugh or two.
