"I could never use humor in my speech!"
Using humor in a presentation is a challenge for most presenters.
In most cases humor can do a lot more than make people laugh.
It brings attention to the point we are making as a speaker.
It helps the audience remember our point!
It breaks down barriers so that the audience is more receptive to our ideas.
When humor is used correctly, it can improve performance, promote creativity, energize meetings and encourage positive thinking. Appropriate humor relaxes audience and makes people feel more comfortable with us as a speaker.
Humor helps people to get acquainted, groups to bond into teams and strangers to feel welcomed.
Watch how you can use humor in your public speeches!
