Learn@Lunch: “Funny: You Should Say That“ : Influence With Humour
Public speaking is tough. Presenters want audiences to like them instead of social media posts. Audiences want to be entertained, not bored. Their attention spans are shorter than ever, and establishing & maintaining connections with audiences is a battle. Using humor goes a long way towards winning them over, maintaining engagement, boosting confidence, and getting the point across more effectively. It may seem daunting, but it’s not that complicated. Jon Selig offers guidance and advice on getting laughs in the boardroom. He explains the value of humour, the dos and don’ts, and various vehicles to laughter.
About Jon Selig
Two business degrees and twelve years of sales experience make Jon a highly improbable stand-up comic. He’s transitioned from selling enterprise & startup technology to getting judgmental audiences to listen & laugh. Stand-up’s full of failure, but discipline and a need to validate silly thoughts have led Jon to persevere. He’s performed at JFL Zoofest and the annual Young Guns of Comedy, not to mention overseas with his social enterprise Comedy Abroad. He put together this course because he loves teaching and stand-up pays terribly.
Find Jon on Twitter at @jonselig or @ImprobableComic on Instagram. He performs every Sunday on a popular weekly comedy showcase called ComedyAbroad (search ComedyAbroad for FB, IG, TW, or visit ComedyAbroad.com/MTL to see weekly lineups).
