How to Use Humour for Engagement on Webinars, Online Training and Virtual Events

Do you want to add more humour to your presentations?

Do you wish you were a funnier speaker so you could get more gigs or charge higher fees?

Have you heard that “It's important to be funny if you want to get paid” but have no idea how where to start?

If you want to deliver your message with more laughs, more entertainment and more engagement (especially online!), this session will help you to use humour:

  • in a way that’s not awkward, embarrassing or uncomfortable for you
  • that will engage your audience and get your message to really pop
  • and will keep you top of mind with your audience, prospects and clients long after you have finished talking.

A must-attend event for every Coach, Virtual Speaker and Online Presenter

During the session, there will be an opportunity to do a live demonstration on how to find the humour in any topic. If you really want to have greater influence and make more of an impact, you can prepare for this event by thinking of a specific topic, or part of your presentation where you think humour will help, and you might be one of the lucky people Kate will workshop with live during the session. 


Kate will be going through:

  • The secrets that professional comedians use to have their audiences in stitches.
  • Why you should never tell jokes and what you should do instead.
  • How to use humour and still be taken seriously.
  • How to deliver your humour so it is 100% risk-free - if it doesn’t work no-one will ever know and your dignity will remain intact!
  • How you can make people laugh even if you aren’t a funny person.
  • 9 places to seamlessly integrate relevant humour into your presentation that will support your key messages and not overshadow them.
  • A demonstration of live humour writing with the group to show the process.
  • The 3 key areas to work on if you want to improve your humour.
