IMPROV FOR PRESENTERS & TRAINERS

Don't be perfect; be present.

When you take the stage, do you want to appear perfectly polished, or do you want to have the confidence to be in the moment, create an emotional connection with your audience, and have your message really resonate?

What if there were a way to bulletproof your presentations against the unexpected?

When you connect deeply with your audience, you create an unforgettable experience and leave them with a lasting message that will have impact well beyond the time you spend on stage.

The Improv for Presenters LIVE Master Workshop will teach you the skills you need to think on your feet, read the room, and be yourself on stage, only bigger.

What's the Problem?

You've spent hours upon hours perfecting your speech, memorizing each word until you can recite it in your sleep. But then something goes wrong. Maybe you're given less time than you originally expected. Maybe you forget a line, and it throws your entire speech off. Or maybe someone in the audience throws you a curveball, and you are left blank, attempting to recover. Maybe you just go blank!

It Gets Worse

Or maybe everything goes perfectly. You're given as much time as you were told, you remember your speech word for word, and the audience doesn't make a peep. You think you’ve crushed it until you see the feedback.

OUCH!

Audiences want to feel like they are a part of your presentation, not just a witness to it. When you are too rehearsed, too afraid to make a single mistake, they can tell.

Stop taking the stage like it's Groundhog Day, where everything is predictable and routine. When you embrace the possibility that something interesting might happen at any time, your presentations will soar.


How Do I Fix This?

In the Improv for Presenters and Trainers LIVE Master Workshop, you'll learn that words are simply not enough. In order to influence and have impact on your audience, you need to be present and authentic. In fact, you need to connect with yourself first before the audience will connect with you. With this session, you’ll walk away knowing how to do just that.

Darren LaCroix, World Champion of Public Speaking, is a self-described introvert who credits his 3 times a week marriage in the dinner theater improvisation show Nathan and Nina's Wedding as the foundation of his career.

“If it weren’t for my improv background, I probably would not be a speaker today.”

- Darren

Kevin Burke began his career as a founding cast member in the legendary Improv Olympics and now headlines the Las Vegas production of Defending the Caveman with over 4,000 shows under his belt.

This workshop is a safe environment where you can practice new skills, gain confidence, and learn how to bust through your creativity blocks to a newfound freedom. You’ll learn to embrace strategic failures, and see the endless possibilities.

Why Now?

Our world-class presenters are busy people. (Kevin once set the Guinness World Record for “Most Theatrical Performances in 50 Days.”) While they take time out of their schedules to help you become a better presenter, make no mistake, they spend the bulk of their days honing their craft. This LIVE Workshop will be offered only once this year, so if you'd like to be a better, more authentic presenter, the time is now. This one skill will permeate everything you do on stage.

Our graduates overwhelmingly agree that attending a LIVE Master Workshop was the turning point for their presentation careers. In fact, a LIVE event gave them these advantages:

  • The confidence to be themselves on stage
  • A major breakthrough of understanding that launches a transformation
  • A change of mindset from hobby level to world-class professional
  • Motivation from everyone in the room
  • Rapid growth from the ideas shared by masters in professional speaking
  • Personalized insights from the masters

Attendees at our LIVE Master Workshops have said,

What Will I Learn?

One of the bedrock principles of improv is "Make your teammates look good." In this environment of curiosity and experimentation, you'll feel the support of your fellow players and build the confidence to take your creativity to new heights. The sky is the limit when your teammates are in your corner.

Discover more about yourself and your own style than you ever thought possible in just two days.

Attendees Will:

  • Open their eyes to new possibilities
  • Learn practical tools to apply improv skills during presentations
  • Embrace the freedom to try something different and fail forward
  • Be fully present, open, and flexible
  • Come away with new keynote ideas
  • Harness the power of "Yes, and . . . " in their presentations and their lives
  • Experience camaraderie and make new friends, emphasizing positive results over personal gain
  • Find joy in failure

Failure in improv is never failure. It’s an opportunity to embrace mistakes, make something better, or create something new. You will leave more confident after honing your new skills over just two days of fun, experiential training!

“The one class I recommend that every speaker take is improv, because I know how crucial it was to my success. One challenge of most improvisation classes is that they are not designed for presenters. That is exactly why we created a workshop that is specifically designed for presenters and trainers.”

- Darren
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! Improv is a gateway to creativity. By opening yourself up to spontaneous play, you bypass the critical part of your mind that bogs you down and contributes hugely to writer's block. 
 
You'll also develop the creative muscles to create on-the-spot, client-centered content for your presentations. Imagine being able to observe all the events happening at an event, then being able to spontaneously create original content about your audience to weave throughout your presentation. Every audience comes to a presentation with this thought in mind: "Tell me a story about ME." The highest-paid presenters do just that, and Improv is an essential key to reach that level.
 
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE. BECAUSE THERE'S MORE THAN MORE!!! You'll also learn how to lead your audience in fun, engaging Improv games geared toward business audiences. Perfect for those engagements where you're MCing an event and need something, ANYTHING, to fill an unexpectedly vacant 10, 15, or even 30 minutes of programming . . . or if you just need to wake them up and get them energized.
 
Improv is an incredibly versatile and essential tool that belongs in every presenter’s toolkit.

About Kevin Burke

Kevin Burke got his start as an improvisational actor in Chicago and was a founding cast member of the legendary Improv Olympics. He also spent a year as a circus clown with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Kevin paid his dues the old-school way: by playing everywhere from Calgary to Key West. No theater was too big, and no saloon one-nighter was too small as Kevin learned the nuts and bolts of making people laugh. The payoff for all the hard work and the launch of Kevin’s career came when ABC named Kevin the $10,000 Grand Prize Winner on America’s Funniest People.

Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year, Kevin has been starring in Defending the Caveman since 2003. He has performed Caveman over 4,000 times, making Caveman the longest-running Broadway show in Las Vegas history.
