Get ready to face the inevitable blunders, mishaps, and mistakes that life throws your way, and come out on top! Let funny motivational speaker Jan McInnis show you the ropes with her hilarious humor and captivating tales from her early years in comedy. In her Bouncing Back keynote, Jan will share with you the secrets, tips, and tricks that comedians use to handle, recover, and avoid missteps in the future. You’ll be amazed by how quickly comedians can rebound from a mistake and turn it into a positive! With no “degree in comedy,” they learn their craft by trial and error!

This keynote includes stories from Jan’s second book titled: Convention Comedian: Stories and Wisdom from Two Decades of Chicken Dinners and Comedy Clubs.

3. Finding the Funny in Communications

In order to accomplish anything, you need to be heard and remembered! Humor works. Using humor in both your written and verbal business communications will keep your audience engaged, connect you with clients, employees and coworkers, “sell“ your organization, product, or service to others, and make your message memorable. This keynote combines Jan’s humor along with some easy-to-implement techniques that anyone can use to inject humor into their communications. Jan has written for everything from The Tonight Show monologues to radio, greeting cards, and CEOs – but this is not just about joke writing. She uses examples from your industry to demonstrate how to create and use humor that works. This is based on her book Finding the Funny FAST: How to Create Quick Humor to Connect with Clients, Coworkers & Crowds.
