Improvisation and On Your Feet

Some time near the end of the last century I met Gary Hirsch and together we created On Your Feet. My own work has focused on the connections between improvisation and complexity, linking the arts and science through a playful experiential method.

Meanwhile the little consultancy we started has some incredible clients – like Nike, Intel and Daimler. The main hub is in Portland Oregon, from where On Your Feet helps clients with issues like communication, creativity and leadership.

Though it may be small it’s older than Google. So we’ve seen and done a lot. When we started it seemed and sounded crazy, but now people seem to agree that becoming more resourceful, flexible and adaptable is good and important work - in both the personal and the professional realms.
