Want to learn the secrets a Stand Up Comedian uses to engage and hold the audiences attention?
Would you like to go into your presentation knowing your audience will walk away feeling energized and enthusiastic about your message?
How would it feel to know that people think of you as a great presenter and speaker?
Would you like to be able to manage your nerves so well that you never turn down an opportunity to speak again?

To become a great Stand UP Comedian, you have to keep your audience engaged and listening from start to finish.  Afterall if a comedian fails, they die on stage – contrast this to a business presentation – if its going badly it the audience that slowly looses the will to live.  

Imagine if you could discover how to craft your message so it holds the listeners attention from start to finish.

One of the most difficult aspects of being a comedian is to overcome the nerves, after all its scary standing up to speak. Imagine though if you could turn those nerves into excitement and the enthusiasm of sharing your story. Would you be interested in learning how to do this?



During this one day workshop we will:

  • We look at how you can craft your business presentation into a story, using emotion and personality to bring the key messages and facts to life.

  • We will share with you techniques for controlling the nerves and being as relaxed as possible to ensure that you deliver the presentation with confidence.

  • And yes, we will give talk about how to inject humour into your presentation to bring it to life.

Who is this workshop for?

If you need to present at work, then investing in learning how to excel at delivering a presentation will make you stand out.  If you run your own business, then every opportunity to speak, is an opportunity for you to showcase yourself, your business and your products and services.
