AIN MONTREAL 2015 : INVITATION FOR OFFERS
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?
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.
