Hi all,

Hope you feel better Stefan.

It's looking good!

In fact I won't need a beamer. I'll have my laptop with me and we'll use that if needed. Would be great to have some floor space to use for some improv activities... And a flip-chart would be fantastic! Looking dreadfully forward! R

Date: December 11

Time: 2pm to 5pm (if some want to stay untill 6, that will be ok)

Location: Theater PurPur, Grütlistrasse 36, 8002 Zürich

Directions from Zürich Main Station:
- Tram 7 to Bahnhof Enge
- Go to the left corner of Bahnhof Enge 
- Follow the Seestrasse to the stairs on the right side
- walk up the stairs (only to the street, not to the church!)
- accross the small street you will see two houses to the left, the one behind is our location

We will have plenty of space. I will bring a flip-chart.

We can have drinks and coffee. I will bring some fruits and a cake.

The rent is 150 CHF, coffee and drinks not included. (It is a family price. The theater is normally not rent to anybody.)

Hi all,

Wow; I'll take down both of your phone numbers; I was not a girl scout and it shows....

I look forward to seeing you all Sunday!

Hi all, Thank you so much for the enlightening meeting we had Sunday. Special thanks to Stefan for making it possible!!!!

It seems we have a nice core of people with very interesting stories and backgrounds.

We have discussed AIN, Improv in organisations, links to Systems thinking (and here), positive psychology, games theory... and the knowledge and experience we have with these matters.

To keep the ball running we decided to meet again in Feb 2012 in Bern. Carole has kindly offered to host that meeting. We want to discuss Business Development and do more applied Improv activities. There is also a question about Improv and child education. If there is something you'd like to add to the agenda, please post!

If you would like to read more (academic) articles, let me know. Please also refer to the section on our website:

Hope this is useful.

I'll shortly post information on the upcoming "Improvisational Leadership" event we organise in Geneva end of March, for those interested.

In the meantime enjoy your week and happy holidays!

We have created and launched a new website to promote Applied Improvisation to prospective clients -

As you know, we already have a great website for talking to each other: this new site is for us to talk to the world, letting people know the value that AI practitioners can bring to organisations and communities, as trainers, facilitators and inspirers of creativity. It also has a sensational new logo, thanks to our very own Bård Brænde.

Please take a look here, let us know how to improve the site, and recommend it to any potential clients you can think of.  If you’d like to be listed on the site as a Practitioner, then check out the sign-up process on the discussion linked to this email here.
