Homegrown Humor! (Prospecting your Past to Uncover Humorous Hidden Story Treasures)
You've got gold in your past. You have stories -- humorous ones -- from past experiences, that you can tell to share who you are, what you believe and how you learned life's lessons. Best yet, your unique stories have universal appeal. Why tell other peoples' stories when you have great stories of your own, from your youth, travels, school and work, to use in speeches and presentations, to transmit culture and more. This program helps you uncover and craft humorous stories for purposeful use. Speakers, meeting planners, business professionals and especially leaders in the US, Canada and elsewhere have all benefited from this training. You can too!
