When you teach or present at a conference, you may have noticed that things don’t always go as planned. Improv gives you the ability to read an audience and communicate complex concepts in a way that resonates and sticks with your audience. And when things don’t go as planned, with improv skills you’ll quickly be able to adapt and get things back on track.
