About our Speaker:

Shannan Scarselletta is on a mission to help tomorrow’s innovative leaders turn big ideas into impact and market share in a way that keeps their brands fresh, and their customers and people engaged.

As a management consultant working with Fortune 500 companies to achieve transformational change, Shannan discovered that her clients’ success depended on their ability to communicate powerfully, adapt, and innovate.

As an improvisational comedian and storyteller performing nationwide with Second City, UCB, and ComedySportz (her “superman job”), she learned the power of storytelling and improvisation to connect, compel, and inspire creative solutioning.

In a world where disruption is the only constant, Shannan believes tomorrow’s leading organizations will be those whose leaders can create and communicate through uncertainty, so she founded ImproVision Consulting to bring meaningful improv- and storytelling-inspired learning to the next generation of game changers.
