Improv to Improve Communication Skills

Monday, January 29, 2018 at 2:30pm to 3:30pm

E19-202

Have you had that awkward moment in a presentation where someone asks a really weird question? Has an employer asked an unexpected question in a job interview? This improv workshop will help develop skills to respond to such situations. We will be doing improv comedy exercises to develop a comfort with engaging others. These skills help with job interviews, talks and working in groups. Participants should expect to participate in improv comedy exercises with attendees in a supportive and fun environment.

About the facilitator: Jake Livengood has worked in higher education since 2002 and provides career counseling with PhD students at MIT Global Education and Career Development. He is also a graduate of the Improv Asylum Training Center in the North End of Boston. With the last name "Livengood," this career path is quite fitting.
