Re-cap of November Event Steve Portigal presents “Yes, My Iguana Loves to Cha-Cha: Improv, Creativity and Collaboration.”
7 Dec 2009 - 11:00am
On November 19 Steve Portigal presented “Yes, My Iguana Loves to Cha-Cha:
Improv, Creativity and Collaboration.” We’d like to thank our special guest
speaker for engaging us in a relaxed, informative, and truly interactive
evening of improv games that gave us fresh ways of thinking about our
creative work. Steve did a fantastic job facilitating a nicely-paced mix of
slide presentation, exercises with audience members, and subsequent group
discussion in which the room was openly engaged. A lot of interesting and
thoughtful ideas were exchanged.
We also are grateful to the good people of R/GA for hosting us, especially
Chloe Gottlieb, VP, Executive Creative Director, Interaction Design and
Courtney Buckle, Recruiter. Thanks to all of our amazing local volunteers
who made the evening possible, especially MJ Broadbent who worked with Steve
to develop the program and Jesse Wilbur who managed virtually all of the
logistics at R/GA (including live streaming) while working on a major pitch
that ran concurrently with our event.
And last but not least, a big thank you to the brilliant IxDA New York
community members who attended: your participation in the improv games and
conversation really electrified the event!
