“Laugh As Though Your Life Depended On It”

A Keynote Presentation by Bob Wells and Dave Johnson from Chicken Lips Entertainment




Bob and Dave join us once again for a highly interactive program that gives a fresh perspective on how positive attitudes and inclusive humor influence the workplace atmosphere, productivity, team trust and everyone’s health. The presenters focus on using humor and laughter as a means to lessen stress, while providing information, inspiration and improvisational techniques that can be used daily.

Often, our stress comes not from the stressful situations we face, but rather from our reaction to those situations. Nurturing a positive perspective helps us choose the attitudes we will embrace throughout our day. This contributes to a work environment that is inclusive, respectful, collaborative, flexible and fun!

Research has shown that there are physical and mental health benefits of laughter. Bob and Dave examine some of the research and benefits in this session. The immediate return is how you feel after you experience laughter and connections with each other. Through the experiences in the session, each person receives a reminder that many will then keep for years, to inspire laughter. It’s good for the soul!
