Improv can help boost employee creativity, collaboration and communication, for starters.

10 Slides

We invited Chicago’s The Second City to host an improv comedy special to close out Channel Partners Virtual 2021. While improv is widely used as part of comedy acts, its use as a business tool to enhance storytelling, employee interaction and boosting sales skills is being quickly adopted as well.


The Second City’s Kelly Leonard

We wanted to put improv’s ability to help business leaders to the test, so we enlisted the help of Kelly Leonard, executive director of insights and applied improvisation of The Second City. Leonard is a popular speaker, appearing at Aspen Ideas Festival, Chicago Ideas Week and TEDxBroadway. He also hosts the Second City Works/WGN Podcast “Getting to Yes, And.”

The Second City performance will be Thursday, March 4, 3:05-3:45 p.m. EST.
