Marymount Society Lecture and Online Wellbeing Talk: The Power of ‘Yes, And’
7.00-8.00pm – online
Open to all Marymount friends and family: alumnae, parents and friends. No RSVP necessary: the link to this event will be circulated to the Marymount community on the day itself.

Next in our speaker series is a brilliantly engaging exploration of how and why improvisation empowers and enriches women of all ages and from every background. From its birthplace of theatre, comedy and music, improv today is actively taught and used in such diverse fields as sports, finance, STEM and healthcare. All over the world, schools, universities and leadership programmes train for a ‘Yes, And’ mindset – and the active listening and team mentality that goes with it.

You’ll learn all about this joyous performance tool, which increases confidence, creativity and collaboration, from an expert who uses it both in coaching roles and on comedy stages.

Improv is more than simply ‘playing around’ or ‘making it up as you go along’: it’s an intricate interweaving of internal creativity and external offers alongside behavioural adjustment, to get best results in the moment.
“Improvisation is a highly complex form of creative behaviour that justly inspires our awe and admiration. The ability to improvise requires cognitive flexibility, divergent thinking and discipline-specific skills, and it improves with training.”
Dr Heather Berlin, PHD, MPH, Neuroscientist

Our guest speaker is Victoria Hogg, director of The Offer Bank: a company dedicated to instilling confidence – using improv tools and techniques – in those wishing to be more courageous and charismatic at work… and in life.
