About the event
Want this year to be different for your life AND your work? Perhaps you need to laugh more and be a little more humorous. Join me for a conversation with keynote speaker, author, and improv comedian Kathy Klotz-Guest as we dive into how we can transform our world with humor and laughter.
Kathy Klotz-Guest helps leaders and teams step up, speak up, and playfully and powerfully through stand-up.
Playful, powerful, bold people change the world. During this Let's Talk: Laughter, Humor, and Owning Your Truth, Kathy will discuss how participants can build your brand through play and bold storytelling.
Kathy Klotz-Guest, MA, MBA: Kathy is a keynote speaker, author, storyteller, creative strategist, and improv comedian. She helps transform leaders and teams into fully HUMAN communicators, storytellers, and creators. She does this effectively through improv and comedy principles.
Comedy / Improv tools in business aren't about becoming a comedian. Instead, they help you get past perfectionism and fear, so you can confidently ditch the script and be more truthfully YOU. Playfulness makes us more powerfully innovative, connected, funnier and happier because we feel more confident. Imagine that impact!
