Christine Walters owned and operated the business of ComedySportz Improv Theatre in Richmond for 14 years, which was Richmond’s first and only improv theatre and restaurant. In 1996, she started ComedySportz* Richmond, and continued performing weekly improvisational comedy shows through 2009. She performed in the shows, provided improv programs for all ages, began ComedySportz High School and Little League program, co-created six musical parodies along with all the other business functions necessary.
As a result, of being a small business owner she has learned the importance of leadership, teamwork, verbal and non-verbal communication skills, creativity, taking risks, and appreciating the benefits of mistakes. She has also had great experience in teaching the philosophy of “Yes, and” which is the cornerstones of improvisation; “Yes” I accept the offer “and” will build on it. Another powerful lesson learned in the seminars is the ability to learn from our mistakes. Too often we are overwhelmed by mistakes and failures. Theatre and Improvisation has taught Christine the importance to accept mistakes, brush off the failures, learn from the mishaps and move forward.
Through this funny business, Christine has had great opportunities to teach students of all ages the benefits of improv, and the results continue to be profound. Students surprise her all the time with their increased confidence and creativity as a result of her Lessons Of Laughter.
Christine Walters and her staff provide creativity, innovation, and team building training seminars for local and national companies, including: Capital One, Carmax, Texas University, Philip Morris, Bank of America, MeKesson Medical Surgical, Allen, Allen, Allen, and Allen and VDOT.
She is also a keynote speaker and uses her improvisational and business background to inspire and encourage others to be more creative in their thought processes, increase their leadership skills and team morale.
The results of Christine Walters’ Lessons Of Laughter will have people LOL and wanting more.
