Tue, Jun 09, 6:30pm - Jun 23, 9:30pm PT (3 sessions)
Jumpstart your public speaking & communication skills (at a discounted price!) by taking our improv for business, workplace communication & presentation classes bundled together.
No matter what line of business you’re in, being able to clearly communicate your ideas is a critical part of becoming a success. Whether you’re presenting a project or just taking a meeting, knowing how to think on your feet and effectively express yourself is key to connecting and collaborating with your peers. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use the fundamental techniques and philosophies of improv to enhance your workplace communication skills. You’ll get hands on experience with improv exercises and games that can help you define your message, receive information, and build upon new ideas both independently and within a team. By utilizing the same skills that actors and comedians use to support each other on stage, you’ll be able to communicate with your team on a whole new level. And maybe even make them laugh a little, too.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to understand:
