Help bring THINK IMPROV back to SXSW!
It's voting time again! Please help Amanda and me return to SXSW Interactive to preach the power of improvisation. This year's topic: Improv for Creative Collaboration. Discover how the power of "yes, and" fosters relationship building and fuels effective brainstorming. And explore how awareness of your objective helps you work with others to build a better scene, meeting, business, or Plan to Change the World. If we are selected, it will be our fourth(!) year presenting at SXSW. We've had a very enthusiastic response from audiences the past 3 years, including being voted as an Audience Favorite in 2010. Please vote, leave a comment, and help us spread a little improv magic in 2013.
Based on the feedback we got at SXSW 2011, we've turned our series of SXSW workshops into a business: THINK IMPROV. THINK IMPROV helps people from all walks of life apply the concepts of improv comedy to unleash their full potential. We lead custom workshops that bring improv concepts off the stage and into your brain. Please check us out, and keep in touch with us on Twitter and Facebook.
If you have any clicking strength left, please consider also voting for (and commenting on) my other proposal for SXSW, "Choosing a CMS For Your Non-Profit". I won't be in this one, but I am producing it. It features two of the principals from Beaconfire, and it promises to be a fascinating — and useful — discussion about the issues facing non-profit decision makers as they navigate the often-confusing world of CMS choices. Thanks for your vote!
