    BizPROV Training - Creative Business/Staff Development Workshop

    • Boost morale
    • Cultivate positive communication
    • Increase collaborative teamwork
    • Creativity and innovation within any company or organization.

    Using a fun, creatively developed curriculum, we help companies establish a “yes, and” culture where people are connected, say yes, listen, support one another, and make each other look good. We teach individuals how to be stronger, positive communicators, say yes, adapt in the moment, have confidence, and strengthen interpersonal skills.

    It’s not what you think of when you think of improv. There’s no acting or role-playing involved, and no one is put on the spot or made to “perform.” Our workshops are fun and safe for everyone, even your most introverted people. We are experts at what we do. You will be astounded by the positive impact and immediate results you’ll see with your team, and they will love it!

    Presented by:  Billy Tierney, General Manager, Upfront Theater

    Billy has been performing the craft of improvisation since 1998; and teaching since 2003. He enjoys the process of discovery as it happens at every level in improv. Billy is an advocate of perspective widening attitude adjustments and being positive in the face of certain failure. The present moment is wonderful and complex and contains a sea of information, and it’s important to not hold on to it too tightly because it’s constantly replaced by the new present moment.

    Billy is the General Manager of The Upfront Theatre, a member of the Mainstage Ensemble, and an instructor in the Upfront’s School of Improv.
