The PSASA Cape Town Chapter presents a unique opportunity to ‘learn while you laugh’!
“Speak On Your Feet” is an immersive experiential training that will focus on the skills & exercises that are relevant to you & your work as a Professional speaker. Through a series of games, explanations & discussions, you’ll change the way you think about & respond to any given situation, both on- and offstage.
Experienced performer & Professional speaker, Marcel Oudejans, will introduce you to the philosophy, practice and performance of the art of “improv” and how it helps you:
… trust your instincts & innate intelligence
… build relationships & work with your peers
… respond proactively to new & surprising situations
… gain confidence despite your fears
… think creatively & try new behaviour patterns
… generate new ideas & brainstorm effectively
During the 2-hour session, you’ll exercise your body and brain while acting completely silly and belly-laughing at the amazing improvised performances of your peers! You’ll soon understand why Applied Improvisation is taught at esteemed schools like Harvard, Stanford, UCLA and others world-wide as a tool for both individual & team skills development.
“More companies are sending employees to improv training sessions to develop better listening and communication skills… Improv techniques also help employees deal with unexpected situations, gain confidence in running meetings and take part in brainstorming sessions.” – Chicago Tribune
The sessions will be run by Marcel Oudejans who is a permanent member of the Long Shots Improve Group and regularly does Improve training for his clients.
