My Conversational Partner:
Mike Dwyer is an expert at using digital communication for recruiting and developing culture, especially in the tech start-up world. It probably helps that he’s also been a fixture in the improv scene in Chicago for over 15 years, especially at the Playground Theater. I call him Mikey Truffles based on a funny story that I heard second hand and we’ve run with it for years. He’s that kind of guy.

- The pluses and minuses of working remotely – and why it might be better for companies to keep people at the office.
- How organizations can integrate the generations into a new work model.
- The ways that improv lessons may make you a better business person, and just a better person in general.
- Why Mike and I shouldn’t sing freestyle jazz…
