IMPROVING THE WORLD ON & OFF STAGE

In an epic mashup, 2 improv-obsessed entrepreneurs merge their backgrounds and share their passion for applying Improv to life and continuous learning.

IMPROVING THE WORLD

Lauren Berning, founder of TBC Improv in the UK and Hong Kong, began Improving the World as a platform to amplify the voices of women in improv. She produces a YouTube channel (link) of interviews with experts from around the globe.


In the fluorescent-ruled 1990's Lauren and improv first met each other in Santa Cruz, California. They both fell head-over heels and the love has never faded. Through the years she and improv have traveled the globe, learned, laughed and loved. Lauren uses improv as a foundation in corporate settings, and to navigate the world at large. She brings this overwhelming infatuation with her artform to Creative Approach, and lends you her lens for a mere 72-hrs. Improving the World ushers into this event an adoration for diverse perspectives and a devotion to giving space for those with unique skills and cool applications of knowledge. May you have all of the fun.

IMPROV | ON AND OFF STAGE

Shannon Stott is the creator and Director of Improv | On and Off the Stage, a virtual resource for performers and non-performers looking to use tools from Improv in their lives and work.


Improv has taught Shannon to be a more engaged listener, to be flexible in the face of change and to delight in different perspectives among so many other lessons. She discovered that these lessons, though taught to her for stage performance, found their way into her daily life at home and in business as an entrepreneur. Dynamic communication, flexibility and valuing others’ perspectives has brought amazing people into Shannon’s life, many of whom are working on this very Summit, if Improv can inspire people to create a global gathering, what else can it inspire people to do? We are exploring the answer together, here through Creative Approach.
