MEDA Young Leaders Improv
- This event has passed.
Join the MEDA Young Leaders for a special Economic Development Week in Maryland virtual team building activity. Partnering with Bird City Improv, this event is designed to develop your personal and professional speaking skills in a judgement-free, fun environment with your fellow peers. Let’s get out of our comfort zone and grow together!
Improv is unscripted comedy. It is about moment-to-moment discovery and flexibility. It’s also extraordinarily fun! In this workshop participants will learn to be confident, creative and collaborative by finding potential in what is readily available. The truth is everyone improvises every single day, but only a few of us improvise well. Why? We don’t listen to each other. We don’t acknowledge how we feel. We don’t see the merit in others’ ideas and we convince ourselves that what we bring to the table isn’t good enough. Improv works to curb those bad habits through its self-empowering philosophy: Yes, And. “Yes” is about embracing ideas and the circumstance you are in. “And” is about capitalizing on your situation. No prior experience is necessary. You don’t need to be a “funny person” or an actor. You don’t need to know any jokes. You just need to be brave, willing to learn, and willing to laugh.
This event is only open to MEDA Young Leaders.
