Many women in business meetings find themselves in the same position as standup comics – being interrupted, run over, and discredited. We standup comics called it being heckled; in the business world it’s called “manterrupted.”
Join professional celebrity comics, Kira Soltanovich, Alycia Cooper, and Executive Business Coach Ora Shtull, for a webinar on how to handle hecklers in all the audiences of your career.
Judy Carter will guide you to uncover the inspiring stories that occur in an ordinary day before they slip through your fingers. You don’t have to wait for dramatic life events to have a story that can turn into your TED talk, a memoir, or just something a little less stale to serve over dinner. Nor do you have to rely on funny things happening to have a story that will have an audience wiping tears from their eyes in laughter. In a seemingly ordinary day, there are hidden stories that contain laughs, drama, and a powerful message that can create a ripple effect of inspiration.
Join Judy Carter, the author of “The Comedy Bible” in an interactive online webinar on how to write funny material.
Whether you dream of becoming a funny speaker, a stand-up comedy star, a better writer, a more effective communicator, a funnier human being, or you just want to not have people fall asleep when you speak, you CAN learn to leave them laughing!
Many people feel that the comedy field is ageist and sexist so how does Jeanne Robertson who is over 70 years old fill concert halls and has more bookings than she can possibly handle?

This is a webinar you DO NOT want to miss.
Business is personal. It’s about stories. It’s about authentic stories. Stories, not bullet points, create customer loyalty, build social media platforms and increase sales. Stories create an emotional bond between your business and your customers.
If you examine your history, you will find an essential story that communicates your passion and commitment. This is your Heart Story.
A Heart Story is a powerful way to attract customers, communicate your message, and entertain audiences when you speak. We all have a story that can create a ripple effect of inspiration. These stories can be used to defend your brand, humanize your message, become a TED talk, and used to influence and touch others.
Everyone who gets up on stage needs to do audience participation. In comedy clubs, the audience expects it and in corporate gigs, there is nothing more boring than a speaker who insists on a rigid separation of performer and audience. There are many ways to make your presentation interactive that will engage an audience, inject energy and spontaneity, and make you look like a rock star. And… there are things performers do that are huge turn offs.
People come to me telling me that they have a “GREAT STORY” that they want to turn into a TED Talk, a speaking career, or a book.

In this webinar, join Judy Carter, author of The Message of You and The Comedy Bible, on an exciting journey into your life stories. You’ll learn the powerful messages buried in the stories. Get ready for ha-ha moments as well as many ah-ahs as you discover your ability to inspire others.
