Improvise Your Way To Success

Gina Trimarco built Myrtle Beach’s entire improv scene from the ground up…and that was only the beginning. Today she works with executives at some of the biggest companies in the world, and she made it all happen by making connections and cultivating her own cultural playground. On this episode, the Second City alum shares how she turned her love of comedy into a roaring (and scalable) business, and reveals how improvisational techniques can teach us a lot about the art of networking.

Topics include:

  • The “yes, and…” philosophy (and why it works)
  • Why most artists fail to break into the corporate scene
  • How to make big things happen in smaller markets
  • Speaking vs. workshops
