'Improv' performers look like creative geniuses, coming up with brilliant comedy on the spur of the moment. But they rely on some simple rules and techniques - ones which anyone can learn. Improvise takes the ideas and skills from improvisation offstage to help you communicate more clearly, act more confidently and think on your feet.

In a world of constant change and unrelenting speed, we can sometimes feel like we're struggling to keep up. Improv shows you how to roll with the punches and face the world with the belief that you can handle whatever comes your way - from adapting to change at work, to speaking confidently, negotiating like a pro and overcoming your fear of failure.

Using proven methods, real-world examples and a light-hearted approach, comedian and corporate trainer Max Dickins teaches you the secrets of improv to achieve extraordinary results with what you've already got.
