    Keynote Address: The Humour Factor
    Hobart & Southern Tasmania| Launceston & North East Tasmania| MC's / Speakers etc.
    The Value of Positive Humour in Workplaces A sense of humour is part of the art of leadership, of getting along with people, of getting things done. – – President Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890 -1969) Successful and dynamic organisations encourage appropriate humour as part of the workplace culture. Daryl Peebles recently completed a PhD research study that investigated humour as a positive human attribute, and how it impacts on contemporary workplace management practices.-  This study involved 50 Australian work teams and specifically examined the relationships that exist between humour and the psychological capital attributes of hope, efficacy (confidence), resilience and optimism.-  It then noted the positive impacts these had on worker attitudes and workplace performance. The findings are not surprising. Appropriate humour will enhance most relationships ““ work, social and family ““ which is something we all intrinsically know but can now back up with some empirical evidence. Although the use of humour in workplaces remains a contentious issue in management theory to this day, Daryl, along with others, is proving that if used appropriately it really can help the bottom line. Far from being a frivolous distraction from the job-at-hand, humour can help in sustaining an organisation’s long-term viability and is a strong ally in maintaining workers’ health and well-being. Daryl is keen to share his findings and the wealth of information he has collected from around the world. He does so through an engaging (and, yes humorous) presentation that looks at the psychological, physiological and social benefits of humour and laughter and how these manifest within a work environment through measures such as job satisfaction, staff turnover, discretionary effort and creativity. Daryl’s presentation is educational, enlightening, engaging and entertaining. As Andrew Carnegie once said, There’s little success where there’s little laughter.

    Keynote Address: Winning the Crowd
    Hobart & Southern Tasmania| MC's / Speakers etc.| Performances
    Winning the Crowd – The Communication Secrets of a Professional Comedian They say comedy is the “˜hardest job in the world’. That’s probably an exaggeration, but it’s certainly not an easy job either. – A professional comedian often only has 5″“10 minutes to impress a crowd. This means they usually have less than one minute to win them over and get them laughing. The techniques a comedian uses to do this are surprisingly simple and effective and can be applied to all levels of communication and presentations. Gavin Baskerville has been a successful professional comedian for more than 20 years. He has played to audiences of all types on land and at sea. He has also spent the last 13 years teaching and coaching beginners and experienced comedians. He has recently created this specialised corporate presentation which gives an insight into how to win any crowd and how to make an audience laugh. Gavin’s presentation is customisable to any length or event. It is motivational, insightful and highly entertaining – perfect for conferences, dinners and professional development sessions.
