"I used your recommendations and absolutely crushed my sales presentation at the conference. Was told I was a stand out speaker and was really able to get the crowd engaged with some humor. You the man!" - Ryan Hughes, 360 Rick Partners After 16 years as a comedian and comedy entrepreneur, I have taken my knowledge of comedy and business to write this book. YPIJ initially was as an introductory course for new comedians, then I adapted it for business presenters as a speech. Over the last three years, I have been able to fine-tune the lessons that easily help people be funnier on stage. What really reenforced my belief in what I have to offer happened in 2015 when the presentation form of YPIJ won an award from YPO (Young Presidents' Organization www.ypo.org). YPO is one of the most elite executive groups on the planet, and they not only hired me, but honored Your Presentation is a Joke as award worthy which helped me finally feel acceptance. If you have a business presentation, then you want to stand out, make people pay more attention and give you their money. I submit humor is the way to reach those goals. In this book you will learn proven techniques from adding funny images, to finding the funny in (almost) any subject, to writing self-deprecating jokes, and more. So whether you're a seasoned public speaker, a new speaker, or you just think I'm pretty and want to give me money, you should get Your Presentation is a Joke.

Five years ago, we met at a panel discussion on leadership and realized that although we had very different career paths, we shared a common spirit and philosophy. We also had the desire to assist others to develop greater confidence, poise, and influence in all areas of their lives. Whether it’s the many workshops and training events that we have authored or led, or our personal experiences in life and in business, we share common lessons that have fueled our collaborative efforts to train, develop and mentor others. After every training event over the years, we have discussed the need to provide a tool that supplements the event and provides a reference and guide beyond the workshop. Very often, we give a 45-minute keynote address, and while we are thrilled at the positive impact that can have, it leaves so much unsaid. This book provides detailed experiences and information that we often have to leave out in our brief appearances. It is now yours to be read at your leisure. Although we provide insights and recommendations on maximizing your presence and impact, there are few things more influential than authenticity. As you read each chapter, we suggest that you internalize the concepts and tips and apply them in a way that works for you individually. We want you to remember at all times that it is important for you to celebrate who you are: in fact, as Oscar Wilde has said: “You may as well like yourself, because everyone else is taken.” Be you... the real you... and, whatever your position, highlight your strengths while leveraging the techniques we share to elevate your personal presence in business and in life! This book is a culmination of many workshops, coaching endeavors, and speeches that we’ve worked on together. The situations we mention are real; the people are real. In some cases, to protect their privacy, we have changed the name. At your disposal are the findings, techniques, and mindsets from the best of both of our experiences.

Have you been targeted The horror stories revealed during last year's testimony from hundreds of citizens targeted by vigilante government agents reveal a frightening reality of modern America -- everyone is vulnerable to zealous organizations and individuals. For many people, fear of harassment comes not from government agencies but from harder-to-trace entities such as religious cults, criminals, private detectives, and sociopathic stalkers. As a complement to Gavin de Becher's recent bestseller ""The Gift of Fear,"" security specialist H. Michael Sweeney provides both psychological and technical advice on dealing with a variety of harassers, casting his net more widely than other competing titles by including the ""good guys"" -- cops, federal agencies, and corporate bullies -- as well as the bad guys usually associated with systematic harassment. This new edition is new and updated has the latest information you need to FIGHT BACK!

Humor gets very little respect! While references to the importance of having a sense of humor are liberally sprinkled throughout the popular media, and it is usually mentioned as one of the qualities of effective employees, it is rare to find purposeful humor practice. Humor is without a doubt the one quality that most of us agree is needed in life. However, it is rare to find serious applications on the benefits of applying humor in everyday life and in our world of work. When the federal government tried to incorporate humor into a staff development program of a federal agency, there was an outcry. It seems that humor was thought to be a waste of taxpayer money, and the program was axed. The purpose of Using Humor to Maximize Living is to affirm, sustain, and encourage people in the practice of humor not only as a personal tool to optimize a healthy life style, but also to maximize the benefits of humor in everyday life. Check out the research that includes a review on the use of humor to nurture creativity, to increase the capacity for memory retention, to support an optimal work environment, and to build safe communities that reflect the relational trust necessary for maximizing living. Author, Mary Kay Morrison teaches a 3 hour grad course in Humor Studies through the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor (AATH) at the annual conference each year: http: //www.aath.org/humor-academy"

At one time taking a public speaking course was sufficient to provide the skills necessary for effective presentations. Now, the Information Age makes the use of information technology mandatory, so that presentations are delivered not only through speech, but also using electronic communications, audio and video media, print materials. To succeed in today's world, individuals must understand the characteristics of information, as well as people's information needs, not just how to present information. Small and Arnone have developed an extraordinarily successful model for professionals and academics—the PACT model (Purpose, Audience, Content, and Technique), which makes it easy to focus on the research, selection, organization, and delivery of information. Whether the assignment is public speaking, technical writing, or web designing, the PACT model can be used to integrate the common principles of information science and communication theory. This book introduces the reader to three crucial models for the successful design, development, delivery, and evaluation of information presentations. An ideal tool for professionals, a valuable ally for communications instructors, and a necessary resource for college students.
