London!  Ah.  My Carla and I will be in town August 27 through 29th.  Perhaps a casual get together?  Paul?  Belina?  Johnie?

Sooo delightful to meet up with William Hall, Paul Z, Joe, Alice and Lucy in Regents Park!  William taught us a great extension of Thiagi's 35 with envelopes, we co-created a story using a seated version of 'what comes next? and no/pe' and we learned a snap game.  The last two were great at tuning us in to taking care of our partners.  Fantastic day!

Belina and Paul Z were delightful......and Joe, Alice and Lucy were great company.  We even tried a bit of Applied Improv on them....with some success....or maybe they just let us believe we had success. Either way it was delightful - pizza - rain - and applied improv!  Perfect.  We laughed and laughed ....I could do that every week.  Thank you London!!!!!

Sounds lovely! Unfortunately I missed it. Could we have it again sometime? :)

Thanks Paul for your GREAT session on Games that Solve Problems.  Here's a great link to Jane McGonigal on productivity, positive psychology, what it takes to flourish, and how games can help us through extremely difficult times.

Yes, thanks very much for a great event, Paul - both thought provoking and fun!

Thanks for the link Berlina, that's a very interesting talk - the most valuable idea I took out of the cauldron of knowledge(!) from it was the PERMA acronym - Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishments. A very good way of looking at productivity!


Here's another great talk by Jane McGonigal -

and one by on Gamification by Jesse Schell (although his vision of a gameified future is a little scary!):

Great post Mark - great videos.  But who's 'Berlina'? ; )

Anyone good at the Boris/Interrogator game?  Who wants to tie me to a chair and shout at me?  We could order pizza...

I'd love to, but a bit tied up now (uh - sorry...)

Would anyone be interested in a session on Dave Gray's excellent Gamestorming?

Sounds interesting but I'll be on stage.

AIN External Website

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.
