Make Your Audience Laugh as a Professional Speaker

Timing is crucial when using humor as a professional speaker.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

There is nothing worse than a dull professional speaker. They make speeches that last half an hour feel as though they will never end, and you find that your chair becomes increasingly uncomfortable as they drone on. The last thing that you want to do is give a boring speech, so consider using a bit of humor to keep your audience listening.

Who Are Your Audience Members?

Humor is a device used to ensure that your audience members engage with your speech. It is therefore very important that you direct your humor towards the particular audience that you’re talking to. Think about where they have come from; are there any local rivalries that you can exploit? If you’re giving a speech to people who know each other, do you know any office stories that you can slip in? Taking a bit of time to research your audience will lead to a real connection.

Timing is Everything

You need to remember that you are giving a speech for a particular purpose. If you focus too much on humor then your topic may be lost in a wave of laughter. The phrase ‘less is more’ has never been more apt. You want to ensure that you use humor to get the audience on your side and then push forward with your talk. Sprinkle in a pun or two mid-way through to keep them listening and try to end with a bang. Find the right balance and you will give an excellent speech.

Make sure you give a memorable speech; add humor and watch as the audience hangs on your every word.

Share your work issues with someone.  Talk to a professional about your work related problems or perhaps even a co-worker or a friend. By simply sharing your thoughts and sentiments with someone who is understanding and supportive, you’ll be able to blow off some steam and relieve your brain from a load of unnecessary stress.
