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. 

Improvise! will show you how to handle whatever comes your way at work – from giving confident presentations and handling difficult conversations to coming up with great ideas and persuading others to make them happen.

Comedian and improvisation for business coach Max Dickins combines examples from the world of work with exercises from the stage to teach you how to achieve extraordinary results with what you’ve already got.

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
(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’.
