In this workshop learn the basics of improv through exciting games and exercises! In Improv anything goes- no experience is required! Audience members, actors, non-actors, all levels welcome. Ages 16 and up! Join us for some unscripted fun!

Trust is fundamental to healthy, cooperative relationships - especially in the workplace. This talk aims to dig deep into why trust is so critical, what can be done to build it, and what the consequences are if it's ignored. The talk will set the framework, however, I hope everyone in attendance will be willing to participate in an open discussion afterwards with their thoughts and experiences.
