Do you know applied improvisation?
Here is my journey, my quest… to apply improvisation to the most rational: business and enterprise!
Since 1990, my conviction has been to bring together management and improvisation, which I teach in parallel with my commercial and managerial career. In 2002, I wrote my thesis on “Improvisation Applied to Management and Sales/Negotiation” In 2005, I created a training project in Improvisation Applied to Management for 2000 managers! In 2006, ESSEC commissioned me to study applied improv management…
In 2007, I created EN HAUT DE L’AFFICHE, the training organization specialized in improvisation applied to communication, sales, negotiation, management, leadership, speaking and team building. Building a team is also an art because I am very demanding for my project and lead a team of about ten consultants and actors who understand companies and that I train. In 2007 I discovered the creation of the international association “Applied Improv”, which I joined and co-constructed… I was in an Anglo-Saxon world but I was no longer alone and we share our know-how very generously to be the best professionals. We have since created our certification. So I also start looking for potential peers in France…
And finally, 2016, I create with great teammates the French group AIN France or Improvisation Appliquée France ! Applied improv became a recognized pedagogical tool that I have been proud to defend for 15 years, even when no one believed in it! I am currently in Los Angeles for our annual international convention… Discover my articles and conferences on this subject, to the pleasure!
I am very happy to announce that AIN France, which I created this year with my friends, will organize the international conference AIN Paris 2018, applied Improv Network 2018! This year in Irvine, in August, at the end of the conference, the surprise of the Paris announcement was made at the end of the convention and created unanimous happiness!
