Humour Secret Weapon of Business
Creative Speaking -The future of public speaking and presentations.
There are a significant number of courses aimed at training business people to speak in public. Many are long and long winded. The reason for this is simple. All too often, what is in fact a very straight forward activity is over complicated.
Confidence Enhancement -Speaking is something to get excited about.
By simply removing the fear and instilling confidence in every speaker much of the basics will fall happily into place.
Comedy Performance -The most extreme version of public speaking made safe.
The fundamentals of stand-up comedy are extremely easy to grasp. To an outsider, stand-up seems very daunting. Confidence and know-how is the key to a performer’s success.
I can install the basic principles of public speaking and presentation skills by using stand-up comedy as a training tool. This is achieved by demystifying stand-up, removing the fear of live performance and introducing a way for everyone to write funny lines, subconsciously.
The guidelines that apply to stand-up comedy mirror those needed for public presentations and speeches. In many ways speeches and presentations have built in safe guards such as; auto-scripts, lectern notes and power-point. Having gained the confidence to speak unaided, the rest will seem like a piece of cake (any flavour).
People Management Skills
Being at ease with using humour in everyday life, will transform not only a person’s public speaking skills but will also enhance their confidence and skills in all social interaction, whether at work or elsewhere. As confidence grows the creative juices will flow and each person will see a vastly improved success rate in their speeches, presentations, sales pitches, emails, telephone calls, meetings and networking; adding enormous value to any business or organisation.
This is training suitable for a new generation who are accustomed to short, sharp messages in which details are concise and to the point. These sessions are engaging, entertaining and educational as well as interesting, informative, innovative and interactive.
Executives and others in senior management positions need to convey short, sharp messages while being confident, courageous and self aware. These very same skills are required to be a successfully comedian.
Ultimately it provides a solid platform for excellent communication skills, which are with you for life, much like riding a bicycle but arguable more useful.
These courses are especially designed to provide comedy training to non-comedians.
