There’s an old adage in the speaking world that speakers who make their audiences laugh have lifelong business security. Even if your presentations are content-dense, you’ll win more hearts, minds—and business—if you can get your audience laughing.
But what if you aren’t naturally a funny person? What if you think your audience will think you are “fluffy” if you add humor? What if you have already added all the funny stories you know?
Whether you dream of becoming a funnier speaker or you just want people not falling asleep when you speak, you CAN learn to leave them laughing!
Judy reveals the trade secrets of stand-up comics so even the most humor-impaired speaker can become a laugh riot.
You will learn how to:
- make your audiences love you in 17 seconds
- apply specific comedy formulas to pump up your “funny”
- make any subject funny (even the most boring)
- get laughs throughout your stories, not just at the end
- turn your problems into punch lines
