Workshops & Speaking

Charlie Chaplin once said, “A day without laughing is a day wasted”. Personally, we believe everyone needs to laugh more.

Planning an event, or looking to lighten up your organisation?

What do we talk about and explore?

Human Behaviour, EQ, & Understanding: We know organisations are full of these strange, fleshy things called people — and if you’re like us, you’re interested in trying to understand people better. Joe has a background in psychology, and Paul’s facilities management business employs over 1,500 staff across Australia. More importantly, we’re both relentless people-watchers.

Humour & the Price of Seriousness: One of, if not the biggest obstacles to well-functioning organisations is excessive seriousness. There’s no reason we can’t learn and perform well without enjoying ourselves — in fact, it might be the best way. We draw on personal examples and explore where the roots of our bias towards self-importance lies. We attempt to bring as much humor and fun as possible to all our talks and workshops

Workplace Culture: Taking the subtle and hidden workplace culture dynamics explored in our book, and exploring them further.

We promise to be flexible and easy to work with — we tailor our workshops and talks to fit the room as no two groups are identical.
