Prepare, don’t plan – Lateral Lessons Ep 07

Preparedness sets us up to have everything we need on stage. Planning can ruin a scene. As speakers we can take a queue from improv and have parts of our Talks where we simply react to whatever happens in the moment.


  • Go where the muse leads.

    Being prepared allows for new ideas and creativity - the very basis of improv.

  • Always be training.

    Do the training - all the training - and you'll be prepared for anything and everything.

  • Let it all go.

    Wave bye bye to the preconceived notions and the compulsion for perfection. Your audience will thank you.

"Here's what you need to do, Kymberlee. Prepare, don't plan. That is the key to improv success."Alan Irwin
