Rod Ben Zeev
I've devoted my professional career to telling a story. I've written plays, screenplays, TV shows, performed stand-up comedy, founded a true storytelling night, and performed improvisational theater all over the globe. I particularly connected with improv because of the spontaneity and the collective discovery. In order to do well you need to adhere to the basic rules: say "Yes And" to any idea, listen deeply, and connect with your fellow players. If you can master these skills, you can develop mindsets that can help you be a better storyteller, innovator, and leader.
At THNK, I co-design and deliver innovation and leadership programs for the Executive Leadership Program, THRIVE, and Custom Programs. My formal education includes a B.A. in English Literature from Boston University and an M.A. in Cultural Analysis from the University of Amsterdam.
And when I'm not doing all of that… I love to cook.
