I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

So I’m in Toronto for a few days, for the conference on Improv in Business. Looking forward to an inspiring time.

This evening we kicked off with a performance of Playback Theatre, which aims to capture stories from the audience and then dramatise them… one of many ways Improv can get people to share and explore experiences.

What I particularly enjoyed tonight was that it emphasised a serious side to Improv, which sometimes gets too easily dismissed as merely comic. I’m passionate about Improv as a way of bringing greater spontaneity to people and organisations; this evening some of the stories told were intensely personal and showed how Improv can also support people in being authentic, telling their own truth and having it acknowledged.
