In this program you will learn how to (1) increase collaboration and productivity with improv and the “yes and” mindset, (2) improve emotional intelligence (be “in the moment” and “read” your business listeners), and (3) have more innovative problem-solving by enhancing creativity and imagination. Attendees take away techniques to think quickly on your feet, speak with confidence, and meet the changing needs of clients, prospects and stakeholders, to get to YES faster and increase your power to influence. Extra bonus: You can win a complimentary coaching session by phone or skype with our speaker, Maria Guida; be sure to bring a business card to enter the raffle: you have to be IN it to WIN it!
