SS 1 - Improv 101: Get Comfortable with Public Speaking
Start the Annual Meeting off right and join us for a fun and truly interactive session of improv comedy exercises that will help you get the most out of the meeting. Drawing from improvisational comedy games, this session gives participants a chance to relax and learn some basic presentation techniques at the same time. Organizers will provide tips on public speaking while using improv comedy techniques to improve ease of speaking in front of others and awareness of how body language conveys information. Spontaneous activities will also help you think quickly on your feet. All participants will also receive public speaking tip sheets.
Organizer:Nadine Lymn, Ecological Society of America
