Using Humor to Make a Difference with Allen Klein

Do you have humor in your talks? If so, you may be engaging your audiences while helping them remember your points. If not, why not? Do you speak in business settings and don’t think humor is appropriate? Do you speak on tough subjects where humor supposedly has no place? In either case, listen in as my guest Allen Klein discusses how and why he uses humor in his presentations.

 

Speaking professionally for more than 20 years, Allen is an award-winning professional speaker, earning the Lifetime Achievement Award in therapeutic humor. He is also the bestselling author of The Healing Power of Humor, and the world’s only Jollytologist.
