Improv For Everyone

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

From Malcolm Gladwell's Blink to articles in Fast Company and the New York Times, improvised comedy is gaining recognition as an art form with valuable lessons for professionals of all stripes. Building on the success of their SXSW Interactive 2010 Audience Favorite session "Improv Lessons for Freelancers," Jordan and Amanda Hirsch return to SXSW to unlock the secrets of improvised comedy for everyone: from freelancers to Fortune 500s, grey-suits to geeks. Come learn how improv can help you hone essential business and life skills like: communicating more effectively; responding constructively to change; making decisions; and trusting your gut instincts. Plus: we'll play games!
