Stand Up for Speakers!

(Please note this is a completely different workshop to Jack’s “Bringing the Skills of Stand-up to Speaking”)

“Essentially the most popular and best selling speakers have one thing in common. They’re funnier than the rest. The good news is that these skills can be learnt and can be applied to even the most serious subject matter.” Jack Milner

A masterclass for more experienced speakers who want to take their speaking to the next level. As well as numerous tips and techniques from the world of comedy, Jack will take you through seven simple techniques for writing and creating humour that will help you add significantly more laughs to your talks, speeches or workshops.

To anyone who attended Jack’s first session, this workshop is packed with NEW insights, exercises and clips to help make your talk significantly funnier! Although it’s not vital to have attended Jack’s first course it will certainly help you to get the most out of this masterclass.

“The best speakers in the world are stand-ups, or at least the ones people spend good money to go and hear speak. What I do is take the skills of a stand-up and make those applicable to business speakers.” Jack Milner

Jack Milner will share the techniques used by the world’s leading stand-ups and humorous speakers, giving you the tools to transform your speech making it more engaging, funnier and inspiring.

What you will take away:

  • A speech that will already be significantly improved as a result of attending this masterclass
  • 7 NEW writing and comedy creation tools from stand-up that will ensure that your future speeches are funnier than the competition
  • Personal coaching on your delivery and content
  • A clear idea of what you need to do and how you will implement the changes to take your speech to the next level with the confidence and delivery of a stand-up comedian.

“Jack Milner has brought his techniques from the world of stand-up comedy to business communication. In fact, he has coached our most booked speaker to be the hugely successful performer he is today.” Maria Franzoni

Jack initially taught me the basics of stand up, which essentially launched the career I have now. I owe him a huge debt." Mark Stevenson

“Jack Milner’s workshop on humour in speaking was extremely valuable. I thought it contained and excellent mix of theory and practical work so that the techniques were properly understood. There were plenty of tips and techniques which were all easy to use so I could start using them straightaway in my writing. If you want to improve your use of humour in public speaking, I’d recommend you attend this excellent workshop.” Bob Ferguson
