Our Program
DING Happens!
How to React to, Take Advantage of, and Create Unexpected Opportunities Through the Power of Improvisation

Anyone can perform well when everything goes right. The real test of you and your organization is how you react when things go wrong - and they will! These make-or-break moments are the "Dings!" of life. Handle them well and you come out looking like a rock star. Handle them poorly and you can end up adding unnecessary stress, difficulty, and complication to your life.

In this energetic, funny, and engaging program you will learn the fundamentals of great improvisation, and leave with specific techniques to think quickly, react to the unexpected, and find opportunities in setbacks. You will even learn how and why to be a "Ding Maker" and lead the change in your organization or industry.

Join IMC NJ on December 10, 2012 as Avish Parashar, Motivational Speaker, presents DING Happens!

Avish's interactive presentation will help you learn

- How to React To,
- Take Advantage of,
- and Create Unexpected Opportunities Through the Power of Improvisation

Our Speaker

  Avish Parashar,

Avish Parashar is an experienced, innovative, energetic, and humorous speaker who 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!" as well as 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! No matter how well you plan, things will go wrong, surprises will arise, and the Universe will throw you a curveball. 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.
