"True about the bean bag. In my group of about 24 I let it run for about 5 minutes. Perhaps if I had set the tone better for it at the beginning, they would have put more thought and deliberation into the exercise."

Hi Gabe, that's a good memory test! British TV series - Gavin and Stacey, Alan Partridge, Inbetweeners (very rude), League of Gentlemen. A quirky range, I'd say.

AIN External Website

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.
