"Humor increases persuasion's effectiveness." - Dr. Jim Lyttle I am comedian/author/dudeman Marshall Chiles and I will show you step-by-step proven methodologies to help add humor to your business presentations in order to increase your persuasion, maximize your impact, and be one of the cool kids. "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.
