As a Humorous Speaker and Communication Coach, The Second City-trained Julie Ostrow teaches and shows organizations how to use improv skills and humor to improve creativity, communication, and collaboration within their organizations and with their clients. Improv skills lay the foundation for effective communication and the ability to be truly present with whom we interact. Being truly present and really listening are key to connecting and communicating with team members and clients.
