Avish Parashar is the world's only “Motivational Improviser.” He works with groups that want their people to be more flexible and with organizations who want to increase innovation. He uses his 20+ years of experience performing, teaching, and studying improv comedy to show organizations and individuals how to deal with the unexpected quickly, effectively, and with a sense of humor. Avish is the author of "Improvise to Success!" and the Amazon best-seller, " Say 'Yes, And!" He has also created dozens of other products on applying improv skills to business and life.
Weaving together humorous stories, jokes, audience interaction, and improv comedy games, Avish keeps the audience engaged while imparting a key lesson: Planning is Important, but Improvising is Essential!

Your success and sanity are directly related to how you respond to these challenges. By the end of one of Avish's presentations you will have key tools to flow with all that life throws at you.
Avish has spoken to the very creative (actors and directors), the very un-creative (accountants), the very casual (college students), and the very business-like (sales professionals). The end result is always the same—smiles, laughs, and a new way of looking at life and business.
