Bonjour Renatus,

Merci beaucoup pour ta réponse. Je viens de m'inscrire sur le réseau facebook. Je te tiens au courant si je passe par Genève.

bonne semaine,

Dear Renatus,

I hope you are well. I found your name as the coordinator for AIN Europe.

I started practicing improvisation in 2002 and have been teaching it since 2008. I only attended the AIN conference in Amsterdam a few years ago.

At the same time, I started giving applied improv courses in 2009 on the topics of interpersonal communication skills and teambuilding.

I am currently looking for courses to refresh my practice of improvisational teater teacher and AI trainer. As I live in Bolivia, I plan to stay in Europe the full month of June and a part of July, and would like to follow courses in Europe (better in France or nearby country but I could move as long as it would be in French, English or Spanish).

Could you please help identify these courses ?

In advance, thanks a lot :) I wish you a nice week-end,

Hi again, happy to chat on Skype, plus I'll be in SFO. And I'll be in your timezone from mid Oct to late Nov (in Kenya and UK) Well, it's closer to your timezone than Oz ;)

Heh! I'm not sure how we're organised down under either! I guess I'm the closest you'll get to a contact, as well as Mike Askew, who was at AIN last year. Cheers, viv

Hi Renatus

You kindly sent me an invite to join your Swiss group ages ago and apologies for my late late reply. I would love to join the group but live in the UK so am not sure how practical it will be for me to get involved. I am in Switzerland from time to time though so who knows!! Go well and it's good to connect.

Hi Renatus, yes I still like to join on the 30th. Though I wont be able to make it for 9:30 h. How far is the venue from Geneva train station? Does it make sense for you all if I drop in later. How can I support you best? Questions I wanted to take up with you at our meeting in Bern. Thanks for your feedback,  Cheers, Esther

Hi Renatus,

  Thank you for doing the study on improv in business schools and for sharing your report!  I have an MBA and an MFA, as well as some other very useful training.

  I'd like to take part in this project.  I live in the Los Angeles area where there are a number of MBA programs.  I look forward to the launch of the new web site and getting a "game plan" together!

Best to you,

Hi Renatus, 

Just read your report on AI in Business Schools. I am doing my PhD at the moment at the University of Warwick in England studying the use of role play and actors as a business training technique for improving Emotional Intelligence in workplace behaviour. I would very much like to be part of a larger community seeking to understand in increase the use of such skills in the Business Schools across the globe. Keep up the good work!

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
