Thanks David

I had enjoyed your workshops and depth.

We can skype next week when I get back home and I can share and contribute "Yes and" to give you some tips to make the very same thing more exciting and interactive.

I loved very much the way you were present for Joey and the way you had protected him after he gave the example. It was a great lesson

Hi David! It appears that we have a lot of overlapping experience - MBA, worked for a bank, and love improv. Would like to hear about your experience with the ICF. Any chance we could set up a Skype meeting?

Hi Alan. Great to meet you as well, and Sharon too. (Sharon, right??) Therapist as Life Coach by Patrick Williams. Another book: Coaching for Performance, by John Whitmore. The training school for therapists who are interested in becoming life coaches: ILCT Insititute for Life Coach Training. You can find it on the web by googling. You also might want to browse the International Coach Federation site: www.coachfederation.org

Stay well, and improvise,

How was your return home ? I enjoyed our conversation in the lounge. Do you recall the titles of the book references on coaching you gave me then ? Also, the name of the guy who offers coaching training for therapists.

You have from now until the Monday, May 11th to make a (or several) delightful offers for our tribe’s conference. Again, ’Back to Nature’ is our theme for this 2015 AIN conference. Life on earth is creative, playful, and always improvising. In that sense, being connected to nature is being connected to our whole being, with all of our creative, playful and improvisational capacities. How does your work connect with that?

More info can be found on the AIN Conference Website


Time: September 24, 2015 at 5pm toSeptember 27, 2015 at 5pm

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

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.
