BRIDGEWATER, N.J. - May 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Humor is simply the combining of ideas not normally associated with one another. This can be accomplished via a uniquely crafted brilliantly presented spoken story; an ordinary visual prop tied to a previously unseen problem solution or the perfect construction of an original joke. The really successful speaker however, harnesses the power of all three options.

Audiences and meeting planners want strong, unique content, but no one ever asks if you can please "make it boring". Humor helps us communicate our message and helps our audiences more easily connect and understand out ideas and concepts. We can learn much from comedians; however harnessing humor is not necessarily about becoming a comedian. For example, comedians say funny things, professional speakers who choose to use humor show their audiences in real time how to see things… funny.

Tim Gard, CSP, CPAE will provide in this training:

An introduction to Tim's secrets of choosing and using props.
Tim's successful story steps and how to avoid barriers to story success.
Tim's curriculum is explored regarding how to learn to write humor using the joke grid and much more. Attendees will have access to FunnierU materials.

A humor plan for each attendee is included in the handout that helps attendees develop their ongoing skills with props, stories and humor writing. Also selected attendees will have the opportunity to present a humorous story and have Tim punch it up.
