YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE AS A SPEAKER IS MAKING YOUR AUDIENCE LAUGH
Most speakers don't know where to start so they opt out and give boring speeches
YOU DON'T HAVE to do that
There is a process to making people laugh – and it’s not just for special people or stand-up comedians.
HUMOUR WAS A GAME-CHANGER FOR ME
I always got laughs in my speeches but I didn’t know why.
They were accidental laughs!
I didn’t know if they were laughing with me or at me!
It didn’t bother me until I reached the semi-finals of a humorous speech contest and didn’t even finish in the top 3 of 10 speakers!
I felt embarrassed.
I was a new speaker. It was my fifth speech, but I couldn’t shake off the feeling of defeat. It haunted me.
From then on, I went on a mission to understand humour – and it paid off!
I went from getting accidental laughs in speeches and secretly wishing I had tools to breathe life into my speeches, to reaching the Toastmasters International UK Humorous Speech Contest FINALS!
After winning several regional rounds I got to the final and ended up finishing second in the UK!
I picked up a silver medal!
Then something amazing happened.
Whenever I spoke, I watched audiences lean forward, learn, listen and laugh!
Yes, when I say everywhere, I mean everywhere!
At church and in business settings; delivering keynotes at weddings, after dinner speeches and hosting – it was all the same response.
The great news is that you can do that too!
I started to get feedback like this everywhere I spoke:
“Malachi was the last speaker in a packed, long afternoon with at least 10 previous speeches. However, he turned out to be the most energetic and probably the funniest and most honest too. The characteristic of any great speaker is not just content, vocal variety and audience engagement, but did I genuinely like him? Yes, I did. He’s welcome to my home for a home-cooked Chinese dinner any day.” –
“Malachi's workshop on creating a winning speech was so insightful. Generous with his knowledge, he provided valuable advice, interwoven with a great use of humour! I thoroughly recommend Malachi. He will complement any event and delegates will not leave disappointed!”
There are laws to laughter!
If you want to give standard speeches and just do a decent job, then you don’t need humour.
But if you want to give the type of presentation that makes you stand out and shine, the Humour FUNDAMENTALS KIT is just what you need. Check it out..
