Improve your life, where everything’s not made up and the points do matter.

Drew Carey’s show Whose Line Is It Anyway?
has turned improvisational comedy into a pop culture phenomenon. But improv is more than just laughs—it’s a valuable training tool that will make you a more effective business professional.
Inside, you will discover how to:
• Replace negative phrases like “Yes, but...”
with successful terms like “Yes, and...”
• Park your agenda and really hear your client out. By listening to understand, you can adapt to their ideas and produce a more positive outcome.
• Grow your client relationships beyond the numbers to build rapport, comfort, and trust.
Improv is no Joke is must-read for accountants, bankers, and other financial professionals to sharpen the invaluable leadership and communication skills you need to successfully relate to clients and communicate complex information in a user-friendly way.
“Peter is the first CPA speaker who actually made me laugh.
Who knew accountants could be funny AND inspiring?
Now, if I could just get my taxes to not be a joke!”
—Judy Carter, author of The Comedy Bible and The Message of You
