Alright, so you're a public speaker and you're not getting engagement. We got you covered. We know how to help!
Founders Marcelle Allen and Brian Trendler, captured while desperately trying to be serious.
Even the best speakers in the world are always learning, always trying new things, and always evolving. One thing we know for sure: Boring speakers also don’t get asked back, or aren’t hired in the first place. Funny speaker earn more too, by comparison to those who favor "death by powerpoint!"
As long as you're coachable, we'll be a great fit. You get both trainers for the price of one because we've refined our own Laughter Coaching to advise and inspire as a team. With our knowledge of The Six Methods of Humor™, we touch upon subjects like speech structure, anecdotal stories, kinesthetic memorization techniques, movement & body work, vocal exercises, stage/space usage, even tricks with eye contact and verbal pauses. You'll certainly see an improvement after even a singular session.
We can also touch upon props, visuals, and optimization of video. Through our improvisational exercises, we’ll help any serious presenter develop the very best message by learning their own mix of humor. We’ll make you more likable, hirable, re-hirable and memorable.
Laughter Coach sessions are 60 minutes. We can work with you on a singular-session basis, or we can tailor packages to fit any speaker’s needs.
Do I have to come to you?, or how does this work?
When hiring us for a Laughter Coaching session, we are happy to come to you. We will not, however, have these types of sessions over the phone, or video conferencing. Why? because we take you through enough exercises and fun things that require movement, etc., that it just isn't feasible. We also highly recommend that you come to our downtown Bothell office. (Not just because we're LITERALLY on top of a Baskin Robbins store) We say this because our office environment is not yours. Just getting outside of a comfort zone is a great step into unlocking our client's potential! Plus, there is that whole, "Ice cream is right below us thing..."
What sort of environment can I expect at events?
Great question. Our LAF Tech Mini Workshops held at our downtown Bothell office are limited to 10-15 attendees, and our Corporate level offerings are tailored specifically for 30 or less. At our training facility, we're proud to have created a fun, supportive and safe atmosphere to make mistakes, laugh, grow and really get out of one's comfort zone! Corporate Mini Workshops tend to reflect the business venue, of course, but we do our best to create the same atmosphere or we'll suggest a different location so attendees feel safe to explore their humor mix!
