Who needs improv training?

Who needs improv training? Well me, for one. Although I have been doing improv for over 20 years, I am still learning. Last night at Laughing Matters workshop, I had a wonderful time and learned some neat new stuff.

Meanwhile, I’m able to pass on my expertise to help an ever more diverse clientele.

In the next month we will provide improv based training to:

The Shawnee County, Kansas Sheriff’s Department;

The Vestry at Grace Episcopal Cathedral;

 

Johnson County Kansas Development Supports; and

Kansas Department of Health and Environment Bureau of Disease Control and Prevention

Who’s next? It could be you! Contact me, marv@laugh2learn.com What have you got to lose? All our training is unconditionally guaranteed.

Variety: The Source of Creativity

I truly believe that a variety of activities and interests keep one’s mind active and productive. If that is so, my recent and current activities should keep my brain from ossifying. To wit: (I have always wanted to say that!)

Last week I attended a great conference   in New Orleans, sponsored by Public Health Law Research. The conference was well-organized by a very helpful staff of professionals from Temple University. I am amazed at how much a good, stimulating conference with can recharge one’s intellectual batteries. As Hedley Lamarr said in Blazing Saddles, “My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.” I’m sure the students in my Public Health Law and Policy class at the University of Kansas School of Medicine will benefit.

Speaking of waterfalls of creative alternatives, Last night was a Laughing Matters workshop. We are preparing for our annual Valentine’s Day show. If you can get to Topeka on January 10 or 11 you really should make an attempt to be there.

Just finished helping the Northeast Kansas Muliticounty Health Department develop a visioning story. And speaking of stories, Laugh2Learn is about ready to roll out a new product to help employees develop and present stories about their products.

I’m quite sure I have enough things to do that I can put off cleaning my office a bit longer.

Video Blogging

This morning at church, my good friend Tom Herrington, of Herrington Photography, suggested that I need video on my blog. Well, I like Tom, and value his opinion, so I picked his brain for a few minutes, and came home and made my first video blog. So please, check it out and tell me what you think.
