Join us at Huckletree on Wednesday, 28 November from 5.30pm to 7pm for a Learn & Connect event on Building Better Teams with Improv.
Neil Curran, seasoned performer and Improv guru from improvisational comedy school Lower the Tone, will introduce you to improvisational comedy techniques that enhance teamwork in corporate environments.
Improv can tell us a lot about ourselves including how we work with others. Experimenting with Improv can lessen our fear of failure and build our self-confidence – enhancing our relationships with the people we interact with at work.
Organisations in Ireland and the UK are increasingly following the example of US companies by embracing improvisational comedy workshops as a tool to enhance the key soft skills required in today’s teams. Improvisation helps unlock creativity and spontaneity and encourages open and agile communication in teams. Corporate clients like Facebook and Google recognise the value of Improv in enhancing the interpersonal skills of employees.
Neil Curran (of LowerTheTone.com) is a veteran improviser with 20 years international corporate management experience. With his combination of both a corporate and stage performance background, Neil offers a unique approach of using Improv to develop and train skills in the workplace. Neil also holds a Masters in Training & Development and is an Executive Coach.

We are a diverse community of people learning about how humans learn and how technology can help learners. This diversity is a key strength of the Learnovate network with learning & development managers, learning designers, educators, entrepreneurs and researchers working across corporate learning, schools, higher-education and non-formal learning. Our new ‘Learn & Connect’ event series encourages you to step away from your own assumptions and take time out to learn in the company of others who are as passionate as you are about the topic of human learning.
