I look forward to starting off 2018 by teaching a 1-week master class at ARTA in the beautiful Cartoucherie in Paris. The class is designed for artists from all performing arts backgrounds, and will take place January 22-26. All details can be found HERE.
I was invited by the U.S. Embassy in Paris to lead a pitching warm-up for ten selected women entrepreneurs, as they prepared to participate in a speed-pitching marathon in front of French and American investors. It was a wonderful event at the beautiful Hotel de Talleyrand.
I recently had the pleasure of helping welcome the new cohort of entrepreneurs to the NUMA Accelerator Program in Barcelona. This 9-hour intensive that I facilitated was a combination of team-building, storytelling, and visioning exercises. I was thoroughly impressed by these start-ups from Europe and North Africa, and look forward to following their progress in the years to come.
I'm proud to join the first cohort of twenty-eight World Theatre Map Ambassadors from twenty-four countries to direct outreach, community organizing, and feedback gathering for HowlRound's new World Theatre Map. I look forward to working closely with this group over the coming years, and to contributing from France and beyond.
I'm very much looking forward to being back at OuiShare Fest Paris, which gathers 1500 visionaries, entrepreneurs and movement builders to explore how digital technologies and a more collaborative culture can address the great challenges of our time. This time I'll be offering a 4-hour Public Speaking Master Class on July 6th, 9am-1pm.
