What you'll learn in this public speaking class:

Learn Comedy Habits to be a better public speaker, consistently funnier and help rid the world of boring presentations!
  • Top business speakers are using humor.
  • They are developing laugh lines using the same process as comedians.
  • You don't need to be a natural comedian to get laughs.
This courses teachings, as referenced in Inc, Forbes, Fast Company, Lifehacker and featured by Prezi as one of the 5 best online training courses for presenters, outlines easy to apply steps from the world of standup comedy to improve your presentation and public speaking skills, using one of the most powerful tools available to us: Laughter.

We de-construct the process from standup comedy into Habits and show you how to translate them into public speaking skills for the world of business. These Comedic Habits are aimed at helping you deliver a more memorable, entertaining and engaging presentation, every time.

Whether you are a seasoned presenter or someone with a real fear of public speaking (like me!) these easy to apply steps will help you stand out from the crowd. These techniques are being applied by numerous TED talks, start-ups, entrepreneurs, keynotes, interviewees and professional speakers to further engage their audiences and we take you through how to do the same.

Most presentations are really boring. With application of these habits yours will not be!

Takeaways
  • How to craft a story that your audience will want to listen to. 
  • How to find the funniest parts of your material and how to get to them faster. 
  • How to deal with stage fright and flop sweat. 
  • How to master the two most important parts of your performance: timing and delivery.
Prereqs & Preparation

  • Lots of energy!
