SMM conference speaker will bring improvised fun

Jessie Shternshus

Prepare to think outside the box during Small Market Meetings Conference’s presentation by Jessie Shternshus, founder and owner of The Improv Effect. Shternshus’s company combines her love of improvisation with the demands of the business world for a fun, playful seminar.

Schternshus will demonstrate how improvisational skills can help make meetings more engaging and memorable. During the session, planners will be presented with real-life meeting situations, in which they must think on their feet as last-minute changes arise.

The improvisational techniques that planners learn will enable them to better communicate with vendors, collaborate, generate ideas, creatively solve problems and establish an atmosphere that encourages attendee participation and fun.

Shternshus is a graduate of the University of South Florida and New York University. She has taught improvisational skills to companies worldwide including CBS, Living Social, Fidelity Investments, Expedia and other Fortune 500 companies.
