Improv Program

Hello SMPS Upstate NY!

Our Chapter would like to gauge interest in hosting an improv program centered around team-building and sales, management, and presentation skills development.  This would be a four-hour event held in Syracuse with lunch provided.  It will be a great opportunity for technical staff to refine these skills as well, so please keep in mind that if you bring 4 or more people from your firm, you can register all participants at the member price. 

The program will help attendees refine the following skills:

Sales Skills:  Promote teamwork, gain a better understanding of verbal and non-verbal communication signals sent to potential clients, and generate better client relationships.  Learn to take seemingly off-topic subjects and redirect the conversation to the matter at hand. 

Management Skills:  Working well with others and how to handle tough decisions.  Cultivate enhanced relationships with employees, better cooperation with other arms of the organization chart, and outside-the-box thinking that can help make executive decisions.

Presentation Skills:  Strengthen the ability to present in front of large and small groups.  Not only the ability to speak, but the ability to convey certain messages.  Learn verbal and non-verbal signals being sent by the presenter, the use of comedy, and effective methods of creating presentations.

Electronic Communication Skills:  Working knowledge of communication devices, etiquette, and ensuring that the correct ideas are being conveyed.

Thank you for taking the time to help us determine if this is a program that our Chapter would benefit from.
