Melissa Love, Founder & President, Everybody Up! will walk us through how improv can help refine our communication skills, improve teamwork and create a positive work environment.
Just as audiences want to see you succeed on stage, so do managers, presidents, co-workers and clients want and like to see your business succeed. On an improv stage and in business there is often no time to plan and things change constantly and quickly. If one does not change and evolve through observing, connecting and responding quickly the individual or business could fail. This session will be a co-creation with Melissa and the PTMA attendees. Through low-pressure exercises she will teach us how to be present in the moment, listen carefully and contribute freely.

Figuring out a way to get things done, work around obstacles and find opportunities for growth for her clients and employees has been her life-long mission and sticky client situations are her specialty because working the front lines with clients has prepared her to bob, weave and hit any problem head on. She now combines these skills with improvisation tools to help businesses increase productivity through team building, employee empowerment and employee engagement programs or to simply persuade her family to do what she wants.
