Jack Milner

This week Maria’s guest on the show is Jack Milner. Jack works as a director, comedy writer, business facilitator, and speaker. He has over 20 years’ experience helping organisations and individuals articulate and memorably communicate their ideas. Jack says that skills learnt from the world of stand-up comedy and improvisation need fresh, natural and compelling communication, and can help audiences understand complex stories. As director for the West End, film and radio, Jack knows how to take often dry, technical information and render it clear and memorable, no matter who the audience.

The skills used in improvisation and stand-up are incredibly relevant to business

In this week’s show Jack talks to us about the similarities between working with executives and soap stars, what you can learn from the comedy world that you can apply to speaking and how to deal with nerves. He tells us about his scary experience in Russia and why his wife bought him a book called ‘Dull Men of Great Britain’!
