Say Yes & Turn Obstacles into Opportunities
Judi Holler

You’re not on mute! You were built to make waves, live out loud, and take action in your life. Yet, most of us remain in our comfort zones because we are afraid to take chances which leads to loads of regret. Fear isn’t something to be afraid of, neither is failure. Both are incredible data streams that illuminate the path towards innovation, confidence, and true collaboration. This interactive keynote is designed to help participants use the experimental ideas from the improv theater and apply them to the unscripted stage of everyday life. The improv mindset will build confidence in individuals, and teams, so they can turn obstacles into opportunities and remain flexible inside of disruption. Participants will learn how to identify the ways that fear shows up in their lives and embrace failure in order to stay in forward momentum. Yes, you are working in business but you are also running a business: the business of YOU! When you start thinking like a CEO you will begin to transform the quality of your life and your work.
