Who would have anticipated that a virus would put the world into a tailspin? Or that a 17 year old would bring the realities of climate change to the masses and change perspectives forever?  In an even faster instant, life can throw completely unexpected curveballs at you illness, work surprises, an accident, a heckler at a speech…Yet are you able to be agile in your response when others around you might fall into fragility?

John, the founder of the award winning “Maydays” improvisation company says that within each of us is a creative genius waiting to step out and flourish and by using improvisation tools we can turn the unexpected into opportunity. Join us as we discuss turning each surprise situation into an opportunity for your success!
