is for anyone who wants to do it! We’re not kidding. Just like on “Who’s Line is it Anyway”? Come and see for yourself. You’ll gain new skills to help you in work and life, more effective communication, less self-consciousness about speaking in public, and the ability to listen without an agenda. And best of all, it’s FUN!
