Relieving Work Related Stress with Humour

Judy draws from her standup performance experience to entertain, inform and inspire in this dynamic keynote. Stress is a major cause of most illnesses, and humour is an amazing way to relieve it. Harvard studies show that when we are stressed, our brain shrinks. However, when we laugh, we relax; and when we relax, we learn. Judy’s hilarious and inspirational session explores seven stress-relieving ingredients: a positive attitude, perseverance, forgiveness, teamwork, family and friends, mental activity and physical activity.

Judy shows clients:

  • How to cope with information overload
  • How to appreciate the incredible medical benefits of humour
  • How to make happiness a mindset
  • How to increase their chances of surviving a heart attack by five times and increase their   lifespan and quality of life by laughing
  • How to increase their brain’s reasoning and decision-making
  • The surprising key to motivation and the most important gift they can give to their child

Taming Office Hecklers - Dealing with Difficult People

In showbiz, a heckler is a person in the audience who disrupts the show. In business, a heckler is the person who disrupts the flow.

The strategies that Judy has developed as a performer in dealing with hecklers also work in an office environment. These strategies:

  • improve productivity
  • decrease bullying and absenteeism
  • lower your stress levels
  • make everyone LAUGH more

In this half-day workshop, Judy will show you how to capitalize on the 3 difficult personalities:

  • Bullies
  • Snipers
  • Buffoons

For each personality, let her show you how to maintain your:

  • Control
  • Poise
  • Rhythm

Stress can cost your company 20 hours/per month/per employee of productivity and 70% of employees who are targeted by hecklers leave their jobs!

Judy, we are getting rave reviews from our agents and support staff that attended our kick off event this morning. As our keynote in the morning (lacking alcohol), this event either hits or misses. You hit it out of the park!! You were funny but also had a very clear message to deliver. Your topic ‘Relieving Stress with Humour’ was well received. It is very hard to keep over 300 people totally spell bound for an hour! But you did! Congratulations. You are an excellent speaker. Funny, captivating and smart!
