S1E17: Neil Mullarkey, Austin Powers star, author, improv comedian and business guru

Pitch Masters

26-03-2023 • 1 hr 28 mins

Episode 17 of Pitch Masters features the incredible Neil Mullarkey, star of Austin Powers, author of Seven Steps to Improve Your People Skills, and In The Moment, actor and improv comedy maestro. We talk about how to use improv in business, how to cast the perfect team for your pitch, debunking the myth of “Yes, and…”, mirror neurons and monkeys, and, of course, Swedish-made penis enlargers.

I was lucky enough to be taught ‘business improv’ by Neil a few years ago, and the lessons I learned from him have stuck with me forever. We met downstairs at the Comedy Store in London and spent an entire day telling stories and learning how the exact techniques used in improv comedy are directly applicable to business. In this episode, we drill down deep so you can learn them too.

This is an episode that is packed with a thousand usable tips for when you’re next pitching.

You can find out more about Neil on his website neilmullarkey.com, and order his new book In The Moment over at Koganpage.
