Among the benefits of applying theatrical techniques (especially theatre improvisation) in presentation is that:
1) It creates a more relaxed and less strict atmosphere that will help the presenter to manage anxiety easily.
2) It helps to "rescue" the presenters when any unexpected things happen; technical problem (oh, this always happen to me!), interruptions etc. By being able to "rescue situation", it puts the presenter's mind at ease and thus create comfort and confidence.
3) It helps to "think on the feet"; people who is able to think on the feet often being looked up too because of the ability to react and response accordingly.
