About Milo - My Story

aka: "How on earth does one become an
 improviser
/ teambuilder / speaker / speaking-coach / author?"

In 2000, after 15 years of computer programming and system analysis, I took a huge leap from the safety of that realm into the world of my passion:  sharing the power & lessons of improvisation in the business world. 
I had seen in my improv classes over the previous ten years how the lessons carried over into everyone's lives.  For me, it made me a creative programmer who could listen better to my clients and negotiate better solutions.  At heart, I always was an
improviser.

Walking away from the security of my last job was probably the most difficult choice of my life but I'd had too many people tell me that I was missing my calling and I knew it was true. The time had come to turn my passion for improv and its value into a career. 


Initially, my focus was to go back into organizations, having worked within them for so long, and use the power of improv games to convey crucial teamwork skills, like listening, building upon the ideas of others, and creative problem solving.  The result was the TEAMprovising™ course that I've been leading ever since, from tiny organizations where all staff attend to sections of large organizations like Southwest Airlines, Union Bank, and the US Navy.  So now I was a
teambuilder.

After a couple of years of leading TEAMprovising™, people kept saying, "This is powerful stuff!  It's changing our work environment.  It's even changing how I work with my spouse and my kids.  You need to get out and speak to larger groups!"

 

 

 

 


I found the idea intriguing, having done Toastmasters for many years, so I began studying through the National Speakers Association and knew I wanted to speak professionally...eventually.  But life threw me an unexpected twist:

In early 2002, I was asked to lead a crowd of professional speakers in some improv games to warm them up for the event to come.  I was nervous about a big crowd, but I agreed.  When I stepped onto the stage, the cameraman yelled out, "Remember everyone, no talking for the whole ten minutes he's on stage and face forward the whole time!"  I couldn't lead them in games like that...and I was already on the stage!  So I took a deep breath and made up a 10 minute speech about my life as an improviser...on the spot. 

I have no idea what I said now, but I remember someone came up to me at the break and asked if I would speak at her Rotary club the next week.  And the rest, as they say, is history...leading to years of solo speeches for groups like the Department of Defense, Qualcomm, and Minolta.  So now I was a professional speaker.

 

 

 

In late 2002, an improviser that I knew was asked to give a speech at a conference.  He wanted to do improv to make business point stick, like I do in TEAMprovising.  I explained to him that we'd need to do more than just perform; it would have to have a speech format with games within it.  The result:  The IMPROVfessionals with our Top Ten Countdowns.

Together, we found ten games that lent themselves to ten valid points about management and teamwork.  We both spoke briefly about our expertise in these area and then performed the game to make our point.  "Whose Line Manager Is It Anyway?" was an instant hit and we later booked it for Pfizer, Kodak, and others.

By changing the topic a little, we developed lists on Sales, Event Planning, and more, just titling these programs "Laugh In The Fast Lane".

We found that attendees liked the fun; management liked the fact it wasn't JUST fun...there were business lessons in the program that hit home.  And I loved that I was blending the entertainer in me with something that would make a difference to the audience.  So now I was a professional entertainer.

 

A number of other speakers began asking me for pointers, which I was flattered to offer, but then something bizarre started to happen:  conference attendees started lingering afterward to ask if I would coach them!  I'd always gotten high praise for my evaluations in Toastmasters, but I'd never considered it a possible career direction. 

I approached it cautiously at first.  The growth in my new clientele, though, was quickly clear and they began sharing excitement over something that had been unnerving to them previously.  I found  that coaching in public speaking was something that not only suited me, but greatly satisfied me as well -- to have such direct impact on someone's life and job satisfaction in this area.

Since then, I've worked with hundreds of people, including CEOs, business presidents, sales people, middle managers, authors...even beauty pageant contestants and unemployed job applicants.  I'm so proud of the testimonials on this site from these people -- and proud of their growth as well.   Along the way, I've done some duo, trio, and small class training as well, but the one-on-one is still my favorite way.  So now I was a speaking coach.
 

 

 

 

 

Not surprisingly, clients asked if there were books I could recommend so I began reading what was out there.  Repeatedly, I came to the same conclusion:  "I'm bored!"   This was a topic I loved, but the books I was finding weren't fun to read. 

The message was clear:  Write a book on public speaking from the perspective of someone who speaks professionally, has both an improv and a business background, and has watched a LOT of amateurs and professionals both fail and succeed. 

The result?  "Public Speaking:  Get A's, Not Zzzzzzz's!"  (available on this site and Amazon)   So now I was an author, too.  In fact, since then I've written a fun book of true-life short stories with life lessons (hey, you can only use so many in your speeches) called "The Worst Days Make The BEST Stories...and Other Life Lessons."   I also have a humor book...sort of a novel, but different...that I hope to have available before long.

 


What's next?  I keep thinking, "Nothing else!"  But life has a way of saying, "Oh...really???"
