Humor is a critical tool for any public speaker. And it's also important for any marketer or communicator.

Why? Because a dose of humor will grab and hold your audience's interest, making you (and your message) memorable and more persuasive.

In a world full of bland speeches and mediocre communication, if you stand out through stand-up you win!

But you're not funny? You've come to the right seminar.

In one hour, you will:

  • Understand what makes something funny through a deconstruction of the stand-up comedy process
  • Learn to apply easy, actionable steps from some of the very best presidential speeches and TED Talks
  • Understand how best to translate comedy principles into public speaking skills for a business or marketing audience

You'll leave with the tools you need to deliver more memorable, entertaining, and engaging presentations every time.
