Stand Up!

Stand Up Keynote

A keynote which shares performance-raising secrets from the world of stand up comedy. I’ll help your audience to see their roles, goals and challenges through a deliciously fresh lens.  

The audience will laugh themselves out of stale habits and into better results. I’ve been a comic for over ten years, I’m a Funny Women Award semi-finalist and had three solo runs at the Edinburgh Fringe. I’ll explain how to use comedic techniques to make your organisation a more creative, productive and enjoyable place to work. Learn how to:

  • Copy the way comics are always looking for a laugh. How to use this approach to stay focussed on what’s truly important to the business – rather than just being busy, busy, busy
  • Use the same process which stand up comics use to generate jokes – in order to smash negative beliefs and find creative solutions to your challenges
  • Deal with challenging stakeholders by channelling the same attitude and methods which comics use to deal with the most rowdy of hecklers

The feedback I get from this keynote is that it’s a very funny session, but it packs a serious punch. By using a warm, humorous approach I can deliver some powerful messages, lovingly poke fun at current inefficiencies and gleefully challenge delegates to ‘stand up’ and perform.
