2019 Special Guests | Piotr Gasik and Agnieszka Matan | TestingCup 2019

We are proud to introduce to you our 2019 Special Guests – Piotr Gasik and Agnieszka Matan!

Piotr and Agnieszka are comedians from Warsaw, who will teach you how to improvise!

Piotr started as a software developer and have been in the IT industry for over 13 years. He worked for both Polish (Play, Netia) and international (T-mobile, Payback, Optiva) companies in many roles (from developer up to Technical Product Manager). Now, as a full-time improviser and trainer, one of his main goals is to revolutionise the everyday behaviour of the IT sector using the improvisational theatre.

Agnieszka gained professional experience in NGOs and in Warsaw City Council. She repeatedly experienced a variety of communicational challenges in the workplace. It was difficult for her to handle situations, in which everyone has to go for their opinion, but nobody listens at the same time. When she is able to change this behaviour with improv skills, the teams work in an efficient way of appreciation and respect.

Both of them moved their improv skills from stage to the workplace. Both would love to tell you about how the art of improvising changed the way they communicate – everywhere: not only on stage but also in their work and in their private life.

They will share their ideas and tricks they use every day.
