For the past two weekends, I have been immersed in Improv (aka Improvisational Theatre) training at the world-reknown Second City in Toronto.   “Improv?”  my friends asked when they heard “You plan to do standup?”  Well, no.  Truth is, I signed up because I thought improv would add to my facilitation and public speaking toolbox.  […]

One day last October, as I “happened” to be clearing the Inbox of my old Jamaican e-mail address,  I discovered an e-mail that read: “This is Lisa.  I’ve been trying to find you and I’m so happy to have come across your blog and then I searched for your email. I hope this is still […]
