  • Build a Better Team with Improv

    by H. Wade Minter and Andrew Berkowitz

    Growing high-tech companies often spend thousands of dollars on corporate team building because it’s critical to get new groups working well together. In this workshop, two longtime corporate trainers (and principals in a successful high-tech start-up) teach the basics of improv-based team building exercises. You’ll come away with techniques and exercises you can take back to your own company, whether it’s a three-person start-up or a thousand-person dotcom heavyweight.

    This is not a lecture, but an on-your-feet workshop. Participants will move, laugh and get to know each other while learning the basics of improv-focused team building. The “Yes And” philosophy of improv is valuable for managers, team members or anyone needing to simply get along better with co-workers. No need to take notes—all participants will receive a link to the entire curriculum, as well as additional exercises and information they can take back to their own companies.

    Great for anyone on any kind of team—development, marketing or business—as well as both native and non-native English speakers. No fire-walking, drum circles or touchy-feely stuff. Just real improv exercises for bringing groups together.

    At 1:30pm to 5:00pm, Monday 25th July

    In D136, Oregon Convention Center
