Event description
Practice using improv techniques to engage your audience

About this event

How do I engage my audience when giving a virtual presentation? I get this question A LOT. Short answer: improvisation. Longer answer: the practice and application of improv thinking principles helps us prepare and present more effectively, authentically, and engagingly. The virtual stage can be a tricky one without the usual IRL feedback we’re used to. Still, we presenters want to connect and collaborate with our virtual audiences through the screen. What we need more than ever is an approach that taps into what we find engaging so we can share that curiosity, passion, or perspective virtually. In this workshop, we’ll get playful with our content and productive with our conversations so you can do exactly that when you’re next ‘on stage’ in your living room/bedroom/next to that window with the great natural light & lush indoor plant in the background.

These trainings will be led by improviser, coach, and facilitator Claire Slattery. This is not your average webinar training! Come ready to play, participate, and practice skills you can immediately apply to your current and upcoming talks! In this workshop you will:

  • Learn why improv is an important tool for presenters
  • Practice using improv techniques to engage your audience
  • Leave with greater confidence in yourself & your content!

Workshop Details:

We have always subsidized our community workshops to make them accessible as possible. You'll notice there are two ticket tiers for this workshop. If you are able to pay the standard ticket price, we ask that you do so. If paying the standard price would make this workshop inaccessible to you, we encourage you to pay the reduced solo rate.

Upon registration, you will receive instructions on how to join the workshop. You will also be added to a calendar invite and will receive a final reminder 24-hours in advance.

This will be an interactive workshop. We ask you to take the call in a place where you can have your video on and speak openly.
