If you're reading this, you know the positive impact L&D has in your organisation. You may also know the damage done by training providers who don't meet your needs.
How are you supposed to choose the right provider, when so many training companies look and sound the same?
The Humour Works employs professional stand-up comedians to lead customised soft skills workshops for business teams. We serve clients in the public, private, and charity sector.
We take an unconventional approach, but it works. Here's why:
Think about your favourite stand-up comedian for a minute. Now, consider their skills. Skills like innovation, creativity, communication, engagement, the ability to read a room and be responsive. The skills of the stand-up comedian are the skills of the modern workplace.
We are dedicated to sharing those skills with teams like yours.
Without punchlines, comedy audiences don't laugh. Without points of interest, corporate audiences stop paying attention. The mechanism for these is the same.
The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible.
We love comedy, but we understand business is still business. We take great care to hand-pick workshop leaders who are not just popular stand-up comedians. They are also experienced trainers. Everyone who joins our team has demonstrated:
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
People at work are busier than ever, so convincing them to take time out for L&D is more challenging. We've noticed L&D professionals working harder now. You don't just design learning programmes any more. You market them to their participants.
Most people enjoy stand-up comedy. A workshop led by a stand-up comedian requires less hard sell. In a world of identikit training companies, we stand out. That's a good thing, especially when you have to market L&D to your people.
We want you to get exactly what you need, so we customise every aspect of each workshop. We follow a simple three-step process:
There is little success where there is little laughter.
