HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO BE FUNNIER?
Do you need to write a joke for that presentation?
Or lots of jokes for that speech or emcee role?
Or want a funny line to start a conversation?
Or maybe a witty observation of today's news?
National Speakers Association, New Jersey Chapter presents the FunnierU Workshop: How to Add Humour & Be Funnier, Saturday, November 8, 2014 at Hilton Garden Inn, 500 Promenade Boulevard, Bridgewater, NJ 08807. Two faculty members of FunnierU, namely George Campbell, Mark Mayfield are all "Hall of Fame" speakers who bring a wealth of real world comedy to this program. The faculty members of FunnierU are all working humorists with nearly 100 years of combined experience in comedy arenas.
"Knowing funny is one thing, being funny is another, teaching funny is another thing yet. These guys at FunnierU can do all three. If you want "funny" for any reason, then you can't pass up this opportunity to laugh and learn with three of the funniest guys I know."

Join NSA-NJ as they helped our members and guest improve our presentations immediately by leaning:

- How to be the 'Funny One'
- How to spice up that speech or presentation with humour
- How to tell a joke better
- How to have a witty observation of the news
George Campbell and Mark Mayfield will lead us through actual exercises. This will not just a presentation talking about the "theory" of comedy. This workshop is truly 'hands on'. FunnierU staff will explain the concepts, show the concept, and do the exercises with the participants. You will get the tools you need to incorporate humor into your programs. It will be theoretical, practical, and learnable regardless of your comic skill set. And one more thing.it will be hilarious!

They know comedy, and they can teach it. The FunnierU program is entirely different because you'll actually learn how to break down comedy and how to write jokes, all different types of jokes. And as you're going through the workbook, you'll be listening to the authors go through it with you. It'll be like having them in the room with you, which could also qualify you for hazard pay. But know this, it'll be fun too. And is there anything more fun than fun?

I'm looking forward to serving as the President of the New Jersey Chapter of the National Speakers Association this year. It's a thriving chapter with great member interest in the high quality monthly meetings. More importantly, the members and aspiring members are there to help, encourage and support all who choose to make professional speaking, consulting or training their chosen career.
I look forward to working with Board members to make this year even more exciting for all the members and aspiring members of NSA-NJ. I am truly blessed to benefit from their love of NSA-NJ and their long experience in professional speaking.
We are planning a great year of exciting speakers for our meetings that will focus on all areas of professional speakers - Platform Skills, Business Skills, Ethics to offer a well-rounded meeting schedule of interest to everyone.
