Corporate Talk with Charlie and Eva with special guest Milo Shapiro

In 2000, after 15 years of computer programming and system analysis, I took a huge leap from the safety of that realm into the world of my passion:  sharing the power & lessons of improvisation in the business world. 
I had seen in my improv classes over the previous ten years how the lessons carried over into everyone's lives.  For me, it made me a creative programmer who could listen better to my clients and negotiate better solutions.  At heart, I always was an improviser.

Walking away from the security of my last job was probably the most difficult choice of my life but I'd had too many people tell me that I was missing my calling and I knew it was true. The time had come to turn my passion for improv and its value into a career.
Initially, my focus was to go back into organizations, having worked within them for so long, and use the power of improv games to convey crucial teamwork skills, like listening, building upon the ideas of others, and creative problem solving.  The result was the TEAMprovising™ course that I've been leading ever since, from tiny organizations where all staff attend to sections of large organizations like Southwest Airlines, Union Bank, and the US Navy.  So now I was a teambuilder. www.IMPROVentures.com
