- To read and connect with the audience
- To be funnier and to think out of the box
- The structure and basics of comedy writing
- To develop stage presence, confidence, creativity and communicational skills
“Comedy teaches you to think on your feet because you are being judged by the entire audience. And it helps you get people on your side – you make sure they are laughing with you, not at you. The more standup comedy shows you do, the better you get at reading the audience. This is an important skill when you are making a presentation as a banker or delivering a difficult message as a consultant” – Ben Quinlan CEO, Quinlan & Associates
“I attended Jami’s stand-up comedy workshop to help me add more humour into my presentations. I’m a trainer and public speaker by profession and his tips were practical and effective. I used them the very next morning in one of my speeches. I engaged the audience immediately and had them laughing about an otherwise dry topic. Afterwards, I received many compliments about how fun my talk was. I recommend the workshop for anyone who needs to liven up their presentation skills. Thanks, Jami!” – Bernice Lee, Director, The Etiquette & Leadership Institute, www.eli-asia.com
“An awesome way to ignite your communications skills to the next level!” –Perry Lam, TEDx HK Coach, Executive Excellence Coach and Founder Lam Institute, www.laminstitute.com
