We are excited to have Jane Fischer, Creative Change Facilitator with Improv Connections, as one of the presenters at the 2015 Creativity Conference. Jane has always drawn on three things: a love for humor and performing, embracing imagination and ideas, and the desire to help others.
After 20 years of experience and leadership in health & human services, she knows that a creative approach to challenges and change is vital, as are a sense of humor and positive intent! In 2002, she co-founded The Unexpected Guests Improv Comedy Group. She went on to launch Improv Connections, offering applied improvisation, creative problem solving, humor, and play as personal and organizational development tools. Jane has also served as Director of SBI Health Education at the University at Buffalo since 2006. She holds an MA in Health Arts and Sciences from Goddard College and a Graduate Certificate in Creativity and Change Leadership from Buffalo State College.
At the Conference, Jane will be presenting a workshop that applies creativity to your personal life. From attending her workshop you will experience the principles and practices of improvisation, discover the connections between improvisation and creative thinking/action, and you will walk away with the skill of knowing how to identify how, when, and why to use improve-based activities in your creative process!
