Course Description

Training fatigue may set in if the training specialist conducts the same workshop to many batches of participants week after week. Despite one’s repertoire of techniques and technology gadgets, the sheer repetition of content may create an oh-no-not-again feeling. Playing IMPROVS Games assures a fresh, new, always unpredictable yet manageable approach in training. Though the games have rules, the topics and the participants change all the time, thus it can be claimed that “no three training days are ever the same”.
