Sue Walden is the founder of ImprovWorks!, an organization dedicated to applying the skills, tools and techniques of improvisation training to business, theater and life. Her experience includes a BA in Education and 35 years of teaching, performing, and widely adapting/applying the techniques of improvisation. She approaches improvisation training as a powerful and joyful way to peel away constraints, restraints and inhibitions, allowing the naturally expressive, collaborative and creative self to emerge.
Sue is an engaging speaker, a dynamic trainer/facilitator, author of Working with Groups to Enhance Relationships, the delightful "Playmeister" of corporate play events, and was the director and a regular performer with San Francisco's longest-running improvisational theater company, "Flash Family" for 28 years. Five years ago, Sue decided to stretch her performing envelope by creating a one-woman improv show that she staged in various locations, including London, UK, Helsinki, Finland, and all over California.
For ten years Sue was a member of the specialty staff for the international, Co-Active Leadership Program, and has presented at both 2005 and 2006 ICF conferences. Over the past ten years, she has been a regular presenter at the North American, European and Asian Applied Improvisation Network conferences.
Her current passions are training trainers and consulting on how to design powerful experiential workshops.
