Closing Session/Lunch: Using Improv to Turn Agony Into Victory (all)
12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m


“They” say practice makes perfect, but we all know that is not true.  How many times have you practiced for a client call or job interview, only to have the other person throw you a curve ball?  They ask a question or respond to something you say, in a way totally unexpected.  You are momentarily stunned and at a loss what to do next.  You feel your heart pounding, your hands are getting sweatier by the moment, and all eyes are on you. The answer is improvise.  Learn effective techniques for turning a difficult situation into an opportunity to really show your skill and adaptability.
