It's simple - look through your current or past project portfolio and find something that makes you proud. Maybe it was something through which you learned a new skill, or where you tried something you had never done before. If it makes you proud, we want you to share your success!

    At the event, we'll place everyone in small groups (2-3 people). You'll to bring in a project or story to share with fellow Tech SIG members, spending about 5-10 minutes showing them why it's special to you. After everyone has shared with their group, we'll rotate groups and do the whole thing again!

    Don't have a project you can or want to share, but still interested in attending? No problem! We believe in sharing the love, so feel free to attend, hear some fun stories and maybe get some new ideas you can take back to your organization.

    We're hoping to make these Speed Show & Tells a regular thing, so if you have a suggestion for a future topic, let us know!

    Presenter: 


    Joe Van Haecke

    With an unshakable belief that anyone can learn and succeed with this art form, Joe’s mission is to bring improvisation to businesses, colleges, and the health profession. Starting off in Kansas City’s Comedy City, Joe has spent the past two decades honing his craft by studying with Comedy Sportz, Second City, and the IO Theater in Chicago. As one of the founders of Comedy XPeriment, Des Moines’ longest running improv troupe, Joe has explored a variety of improv formats. During my 20 years of coaching and performing improv, I’ve seen both teens and adults make complete transformations into strong, independent, and confident leaders. I believe the skills we develop through improvisation apply not only to performance but also to education, medical, and business environments. Improvisation strengthens everyone. My job is to help leaders create strong leaders. Joe provides coaching, consulting, and workshops that utilize the tools and skills of improvisation. His workshops break down communication barriers in order to create a sense of play in an engaging learning environment. Connect with Joe to discuss how a workshop or series of workshops can help your environment use improvisation.

    Session Description

    In the next 5 - 10 years, at least 1/3 of the jobs we have today will not exist. We need a workforce that can adapt to change while being innovative, communicative, and collaborative. Applied improvisation, using the tenants of improv, provides the tools and skills managers and team members need to listen, take risk, and communicate effectively.

    Session Objectives

    This interactive workshop provides an introduction to applied improvisation where participants will: foster creativity, listen actively, adapt quickly to variable factors that change unexpectedly and take bold risks.
