Lethargy, boredom, and the same old same old creates meeting attrition. Your conference may be crying out for a new twist. People attend a conference to learn and grow; to experience something they wouldn't experience otherwise. Given adults only laugh 15- 20 times a day, laughing is just what audiences crave.
Humor has a big impact on learning. It aids in memory, creates focus, wakes people up and recharges audience energy levels.
The Way You Think-When you laugh you divert blood flow from the back stress center of the brain to the front part of the brain. See our blog post How Laughter Affects the Brain. A little bit of levity goes a long way to broaden your perspective. When you take yourself lightly you can see through stress instead of being stuck in it. You stop taking everything personally.
The Way You Feel- When you laugh you inject energy boosting endorphins that creates new focus and vitality. Especially if an event agenda is rich in content and learning, it is important to start the day by waking people up with more than caffeine.
The Way You Act- As the saying goes, people who play together stay together. A humorous motivational speaker uplifts the audience in a shared emotional bond. Audiences that are smiling and having fun together enjoy a strong congrence that binds them throughout an event and beyond.
