This high energy, interactive workshop incorporates games to develop camaraderie, creativity, humor, and spontaneous thinking in a way that is refreshingly honest and thought-provoking. The format will explore how students can use improv techniques to improve their approach to leadership and collaboration. Pratt Master's students can register for this workshop at mywco.com/pratt on the Professional Development Schedule. Facilitator Bio: Paul Marks studied improv fundamentals at Second City, one of the origins of improv comedy, and spent several years researching and studying corporate culture, team building, and presentation skills to explore the synergistic relationship between his improv philosophy and the business world. Confident of the connection, in early 2012, Paul opened the Over The Counter Improv Business Division (now known as Beta Test improv) to teach the benefits of improvisation and right brain thinking. Paul's unique style of laughter, leadership, and right brain thinking has led companies such as Daimler Trucks, Wells Fargo, Ingersoll Rand, Duke Energy, Bank of America, Red Ventures and many others to use his training workshops.
