Jim Tosone - Improv Means Business
Jim Tosone is a graduate of The Second City Training Center, the world-famous center for Improvisation, where he studied under Martin de Maat. He has performed with the Improv group Demented But Mobile at Players Theatre, Music Theatre Works, and the Comedy Cellar in New York City. He currently runs IMPROV Means Business.
Jim brings over twenty years of business experience to every event. His combination of performing and business experience, along with his approachable style, are what makes his workshops so popular in the business community. Jim’s educational and entertaining Improv Workshops, and Improv Sessions for Meetings/Conferences, have been used successfully by clients for major corporations (Astellas Pharma, Bank Leumi, Chubb, Dannon, Leviton, M&M Mars, MetLife, Pepsi, Pfizer, Time Warner), academia (Howard Hughes Medical Institute, New York Academy of Science, NYU Stern School of Business), and professional associations (Society for Information Management, Toastmasters International).
As a libertarian (and NJ Libertarian Party member), Jim will present a workshop on Improv. What does this have to do with being a Libertarian? Well, the best Improv groups (think of the players on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”) are self-organizing groups that create meaning spontaneously, without a leader or central planning. An Improv scene, like our social and economic lives, is a complex adaptive system in which local distributed knowledge (that of each individual) is critical to what is, in essence, a bottom-up process of co-creation.
