28th February 2015

Oops! We’ve only gone and planned an Accidental Conference!  Run in partnership with the Guardian Women in Leadership, our Stand Up to Stand Out one-day event has been specially curated for women who want to develop their business mojo from the ground up – no shoulder pads allowed!  All you need is handfuls of passion and a GSOH!  

Our aim is to help you to be better in business by focusing on the most important thing: YOU. This unique event is made up of a series of workshops that will help you to improve your confidence, use your voice properly, improvise when the going gets tough, stand up for yourself and even dress for the part. Our plan is that you leave this conference with a new set of personal skills that will really make you stand out.

To read all about the full and diverse workshop programme take a look at this article.

Facilitated by Funny Women and a few of our very best and funniest friends, you’ll be treated to expert advice from women at the top of their game. You can pick and choose from a range of fantastic workshops and at the end of the day we’ll all come together to hear from a very special headline act - to be announced very soon.

Laughter is obligatory throughout the day because we know that when you laugh, your whole being relaxes and the world feels like a better place. So join us for a day of self-improvement guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and everybody you do business with too.

Funny Women Improv Workshop

Funny Women Improv Workshop

7th March 2015

Join Funny Women and its experienced team of comedy improvisors for a special workshop to teach you all about the art of improv comedy. In this fun and friendly class you won’t need any drama, acting, comedy or improv experience. You don’t even have to be funny! We're here to teach you the basics and show you how you can improvise your way to success.

Improv comedy is very different to stand up comedy. You work with a team, bounce off one another and use your collective imaginations to create other worlds, characters and scenarios. It's a great skill to develop and use in everyday life whenever you can.

In this fun and friendly workshop you'll learn core improvisation skills such as comic timing, how to say "yes, and ...", how to develop characters and storylines and most importantly, how to listen. So book your place now and unleash your creativity. 


PRICE: Full Price  £49.50 

            Concs/Students/BFFs  £39.50

DATE: Saturday 7th March

TIME: 11.00 a.m - 1.00 p.m

VENUE: St James Theatre, 12 Palace St, London, SW1E 5JA
