Jan McInnis - Finding the Funny in Change

 Check Availability

Whether it’s going green or the myriad of new rules that govern our business, we are constantly reacting to a new playing field. And all of this change causes fear, tension and miscommunications. This popular keynote combines hilarious comedy with practical tips on dealing with change through using humor.

Jan will show you how to:

  • diffuse tension instantly,
  • kick off tough conversations
  • facilitate communications

. . . all by using humor that you, yourself can do. And she’ll also give you the latest research between laughter and health – yes they’re actually studying this stuff!

Jan has spent the past 18 years as a professional speaker, comedian and comedy writer. She was featured in the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post for her humor, and she has shared her humor keynotes with thousands of organizations from the Federal Reserve Banks to the Mayo Clinic and beyond.

Jan has also sold comedy material to everything from the Tonight Show Monologue to hundreds of radio stations, to greeting cards, syndicated cartoon strips, websites, CEO’s, and even guests on the Jerry Springer show (her parents are proud!). She is the author of “Finding The Funny Fast: How To Create Quick Humor To Connect With Clients, Coworkers And Crowds.”

Born in D.C., Jan was in charge of the “Joke of the Day” for her junior high school lunch table. Not surprisingly, she majored in communications at Virginia Tech, where she was a disk jockey for the local radio station. She now resides in Los Angeles.
