What is Improvisation (improv)?
Improv means actively listening and reacting without pre-planning. It encourages us to be adaptable. We do this throughout the day  E.G. Being forced to make a decision without all of the facts, being put on the spot, negotiating a deal, speaking off the cuff, the list goes on. By using the core principles of improvisation  collaboration, communication, creativity and fun  we can react more flexibly and spontaneously while at the same time grow our confidence with our work abilities. In the modern workplace, we are expected to be highly adaptable and rise to many unseen challenges.

Neil will work with you in the following areas to both enhance your skills and grow your confidence in utilising them.

Speaking to Influence
No one is exempt from having to speak or present in the workplace. Be it a presentation with clients, internally with our teams or a meeting with colleagues. We are constantly require to engage with our peers. For many, these often unscripted scenarios cause anxiety. In the masterclass we will utilise tools and techniques that empower us to engage with people more effectively in any setting that requires us communicate, speak and influence.

Presenting with Impact
Having to present to a room of investors, clients or colleagues can be daunting to anyone in an organisation. However we often prepare for our presentations focussing on the areas that require least attention. During the Masterclass, we will explore how to bring a real presence to a presentation, engaging our audience and inspiring others.

Create more Engaging Interactions
How we speak and engage with others determines our effectiveness at being effective, confidence communicators. Do we inspire confidence, show leadership and bring clarity to our interactions? This Masterclass will show us how our mindset, body language and choice of words can can make us more effective communicators and grow our self confidence working with others at any level in an organisation.

Improv with Neil surpassed my expectations in many ways. The classes delivered were far more enjoyable and fun than I could have imagined. That was in part due to the nature of improv but in much larger part due to Neils skills in teaching, understanding, perception and communication. I was imagining a tuition on how to do whose line is it anyway type of scenarios but was surprised to be exploring the barriers that we have constructed as adults. And then I was given the encouragement and space to tear these barriers down and relearn vital skills we had as children. Subsequently life is now viewed through a different prism with a clarity that has more colours and depth of perception than ever before.
