How Improv Comedy Can Help You Be a Better, More Engaging and Funnier Speaker with Avish Parashar

Improv is the art of saying, “Yes, and …” but when it comes to even thinking about it, so many of us say, “No way!” And that’s unfortunate because no matter how well you plan, things will go wrong, surprises will arise, and the universe will throw you a curveball. Consequently, your success — and sanity — are directly related to how you respond to these challenges.
