Use the Secrets of Improv to Achieve Extraordinary Results at Work
Share this book
Improv performers look like creative geniuses, coming up with brilliant comedy on the spur of the moment. But they rely on some simple rules and techniques – ones which anyone can learn, and which can help us offstage to think creatively, collaborate with others and communicate with impact.
Max Dickins is director
of Hoopla, the UK’s first improvisation training school and London’s first
dedicated improv comedy theatre. Offstage, as a coach and business speaker, he
has brought improvisation into workplaces across the world, with clients
including Facebook, Google and Unilever – even teaching candidates on The
Apprentice (BBC1). As
a comedian and writer, he has had his own Sony Award-nominated show on Absolute
Radio, appeared numerous times on Michael McIntyre’s Big Show (BBC1),
and taken critically acclaimed shows to the Edinburgh Festival and on tour around
the UK. His book My Groupon Adventure was
described by the Irish Examiner as ‘full of heart’.
