Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

The need to adapt and be flexible within project schedules and meetings has never been greater, but this is a soft skill not easily taught or quickly learned. It starts with team collaboration and trust while ultimately leading to idea generation and problem solving. Yield to the highest offer. Always say YES. Alway raise the bar. These are three of the core components to improvisation in comedy. They are also three pillars to a good collaborative environment.

This hands on session will explore the fundamentals to improv as a means to strengthen teams across organizations. Participants will walk away with:

  1. An understanding to the fundamentals to improv
  2. An understanding of applications to the field of UX as both a team building tool and idea generation
  3. Real world practice and sample exercises

We’re looking to get up and shake the cobwebs off our bodies. Through Bodystorming and other improv games participants will engage with the space around them and will learn the basics of improvisational comedy and how it can directly translate back to work in the office and with clients alike.
