About this event

Want to know how to use humour to get better engagement with your online content and presentations but don't know where to start?

Do you want to avoid feeling awkward or being cringe-worthy when you use humour?

Would you like to be funny on purpose - where your humour supports your key messages, brand and personality (but doesn't ruin your credibility)?


FUNNY ON PURPOSE FOUNDATIONS is a 3-hour introductory workshop for Coaches, Speakers and Business Leaders, that gives you the basics on how to use humour to deliver your message confidently. Find out how to maintain your credibility, without feeling awkward, embarrassed or uncomfortable.


Why does this workshop exist?

Attention spans are getting shorter, we are faced with more distractions than ever before, and we are in information overload. It's getting harder to get attention, be listened to, and make an impact.

How do you stand out from the crowd, get attention and get engagement?

Comedians are masters of engagement - they can do it instantly. Comedians can skilfully use humour to connect with their audience. In this workshop, you will discover how to deliver your message with more humour, more entertainment and more engagement and still maintain your credibility!

FUNNY ON PURPOSE FOUNDATIONS combines the skills of Comedians with the strategies of business to show you how to get attention, connect and engage with your audience (and your audience can be anyone; your customers, clients, prospects, suppliers and team).

The biggest problem most people face is when they think of humour is they think of it in the context of humour for entertainment - where the focus is on being funny, cracking jokes and getting laughs. But when you are using humour for presentations and business - that doesn't quite work.

Instead, when using humour for business - think of it as the ACE up your sleeve. In a business context, you want to use humour for getting Attention, Connection and Engagement.

Humour is also the perfect antidote to disengagement that happens when things are too dull, too dry or too boring. Theron Harmon, from Harmon Brothers - (the Advertising Agency behind hilarious viral brand videos including PooPouri, Squatty Potty and Click Funnels) says…

"People don't bail because it's too long, they bail because it's too boring." Theron Harmon

FUNNY ON PURPOSE FOUNDATIONS is the perfect introduction if you are a Coach, Speaker or someone who presents as part of their business, who wants to add more humour to your business message to:

  • Get attention in a crowded online marketplace
  • Engage online audiences when you are doing videos or presentations for webinars, online training and virtual events
  • Get more guest speaking and podcast opportunities
  • Increase your speaking fees
  • Get more laughs from your audience
  • Get remembered, referred and repeat business

What you will learn:

  1. The secrets that professional comedians use to have their audiences in stitches
  2. Why you should never tell jokes and what you should do instead
  3. How to safely use humour that maintains your credibility
  4. How to use humour without feeling awkward or uncomfortable
  5. How to deliver your humour 100% risk-free so if it doesn't work no-one will ever know, and your dignity will remain intact
  6. How you can make people laugh even if you aren't a funny person
  7. How to seamlessly integrate relevant humour that will support your key messages and not overshadow them.
  8. How to still be taken seriously when using humour

What we'll cover:

  • The 3 Big Mistakes (HUGE!) that will restrict your ability to get laughs while maintaining your credibility.
  • How to add humour to reinforce your message and make sure it lands with your audience.
  • How to inject your message into the day-to-day life of your audience, so it's remembered long after you've stopped talking.
