Purposeful Storytelling Workshop:
The Craft of Comedy

The Craft of Comedy for Speakers

MOTORONTOXANDRAA common speaker’s joke starts with the question, ‘Do I have to be funny?’ The answer, of course, is, ‘Only if you want to get paid.’ The truth is that no matter how serious your topic, or no matter how tragic the story… humour always plays a major role in your ability to connect with your audience and keep them engaged. But what if you’re not naturally funny? What if you can’t tell a joke to save your life? What if you can’t find a place in your story to insert a laugh?

But this workshop isn’t just about learning how to find the funny; it’s about taking the story you have and enhancing it with humour. This is the stuff that separates the professionals from the amateurs. Our unique exercises use the craft of comedy to improve memorability, audience engagement, impact, effectiveness and well, everything... including your speaker fee!

MOTORONTOMICHEL5You will work on:

  • Where and how to insert a laugh for comedic relief or to make a point more pointed.
  • The 4 fundamentals of funny
  • How to develop a humour mindset
  • The vocabulary of comedy
  • Timing and pacing

In addition, you will use your own material or prepared story in exercises specifically designed to add smiles, snickers and big belly laughs to your talk.

And as a double bonus, you'll see how the principles for getting a smile or laugh are the same principles when making a dramatic or though-provoking point. (Yes, seriously.) Intrigued? Register now...

Dave LieberOne of the best storytelling programs, if not the best, I have ever seen. Remarkable in its clarity.

Kat HayI have been on the cutting edge of new programs before and the moSpeaker Academy is no exception. It’s cutting edge because the ‘mo’ model and process take you on a journey just as the stories you are trying to write. Michel, this program was a gift and one I hope you share with hundreds of people. I am your fan and advocate and I have a kick-ass signature story because of your cutting edge new program. To anyone sitting on the fence about this one… jump in, take the risk.

carolynellisFeeling grateful for the experience of moSpeaker Academy this past week. I learned a lot about how to put together a talk, etc. but what was delivered went way beyond that. Authentic, moving stories of the heart, how to structure and deliver them, and then actually getting up on the stage and getting individual attention and awesome feedback. A profound and powerful training I know will make a huge difference in so many ways.

Combining exercises in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), classic story-telling, stand-up comedy, improv, acting and professional speaking, participants rave about the unique approach we take in Purposeful Storytelling Workshops - which uses your signature story as the basis for a more impactful message and performance.

Limited to just 12 participants, and facilitated by Michel Neray, founder of momondays, a major portion of the workshop is devoted to working with you individually in order to help you go from good speaker to great and from great to awesome.
