Improv In the Wild
Improving Communication With Improv Comedy
A Custom Playshop By Sheila Robertson
Sheila Robertson (who? Get hip on Sheila now!) recently developed and conducted a custom Playshop as part of the 10th Annual UW-Madison Women & Leadership Symposium. Along with her co-presenter, Jacy Whitehead, Sheila demonstrated the ways in which the same skills utilized by improv comedians can be used to benefit one’s personal and professional life.
The UW-Madison Women & Leadership Symposium was fantastic! My favorite part of the day was looking around at the large group sessions and seeing 550+ powerful female leaders in one place. The energy in the room was palpable with a high frequency of greatness. Everyone I encountered was kind, interesting, clever, smart and open. I feel very lucky to have participated in the day. – Sheila
A big thanks to Jacy Whitehead, UW-Madison’s Learning and Talent Development department, and to all who attended this event.
