Improvisation Techniques for Spontaneous Speaking

This fun, extremely interactive training segment uses traditional Improvisation techniques and exercises to encourage you to leap fearlessly and gleefully into the moment, and to make, trust and act upon quick, strong choices. The exercises encourage you to step fully into the moment and creatively solve the task at hand. Glee abounds, energy soars, laughter rocks the house, comfort zones are breached, and confidence is built. And working together with others towards a desired outcome encourages a greater degree of flexibility, patience, and communication between team members.

Punch Up Your Pitches  (After Hours Session)

You’re at yet another networking event, extending your business card to yet another prospect, and they ask the inevitable question: “What do you do?”  How you respond will either attract or repel them.  Which outcome would you prefer?

You can’t afford to let a ho-hum, confusing or robotic pitch drive away a potential patients or customer.  This interactive session will change the way you think about your Elevator Pitch (or Elevator Overture as I prefer to call it).  You’ll be encouraged to develop—and practice—new, more effective ways of phrasing, communicating and delivering your Elevator Overtures so that they catalyze conversations that build into lucrative business relationships.

You’ll learn:

  • How (and why) to craft a compelling pitch/Elevator Overture
  • How to focus a pitch and increase engagement by employing a strong intention
  • Four new pitching models that will make pitches/Elevator Overtures more fun, more human, more memorable and more effective.

Ramp Up Your Presence by Risking and Revealing  (Early Bird Session)

As professional actors understand, having the courage to be fully present–emotionally and physically–is a critical component to peak performance and effective communication.

In this mini-session, you’ll work in pairs to practice and reinforce the listening, speaking, and presence skills necessary to developing and maintaining effective relationships with your colleagues and patients. And in the process, you’ll be encouraged to take the risk of fully “showing up” and exploring your willingness to be present, human and real with another human being.

Awkward Introductions Made Easy
Networking is a very important part of success in the business world. While most of us in the speaking profession are very outgoing, that doesn’t mean that everyone is easy to talk to. And as a business professional we may get so caught up talking about ourselves that we don’t make the time and intentional effort to learn about others.
