Share a favorite 'improv epiphany'
Just before I was due to lead a rehearsal by my improv troupe, I said to the group's leader: "I don't know how to do this." He replied: "New choice." So I played the game and said: "I need help to do this." Again, he said: "New choice." And I replied: "OK, here's what we're going to do." And I realised that I can play New Choice in any situation in my life to reach a more resourceful state.

In my travels since then, I’ve come across lots more excellent resources. I’ve read several books and hundreds of articles, watched lots of videos, and cherry-picked what I think are the most relevant, useful and interesting ones.

So here’s my gift to you: Part 2 in the series, with a link to my…


How to Sell an Applied Improv Program

Posted on July 20, 2013 at 12:15pm 0 Comments

Note: I'm a marketing consultant, and I led a session titled “How to Sell an Applied Improv Program” at the Applied Improvisation Network's mini-conference in Manila, The Philippines, on June 25, 2013.

The one-hour session was a wide-ranging conversation.
