Three Improv Techniques to Make You a Better Business Owner
SPEAKER: Lawrese Brown
The core principles of improvisation—accepting failure, active listening, and collaboration and contribution—are also key pieces of being a successful business owner. During this interactive presentation, you'll discover how improvisation can improve your business by enabling you to be quicker on your feet, more present, and more clear and direct in your value-add to customers and clients.
Since founding Brown Coaching & Consulting, LLC in 2014, Lawrese Brown has educated and equipped thousands of students and hundreds of professionals with the information and skills necessary to reach their professional goals. Through her work with The Engaging Educator, Lawrese has taught improvisation classes and workshops to professionals of all ages in Connecticut, New York, and Washington, D.C. Her articles on learning and development have been featured Idealist Careers, Business Insider, Noodle Education, and Fast Company.
Lawrese is also the newly appointed MetroEast Region Leadership Team Chair and former region event coordinator.
