Join us Thursday, January 16th, at our Monthly PACC Membership Luncheon featuring David Horning, who will present "Lead With Laughs: How Humor Inspires a Creative and Engaged Workplace".
|We have been conditioned to believe that “work isn’t the time or place to laugh,” but studies have conclusively shown that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Organizations that have integrated humor into their workplace culture have seen increases in productivity, collaboration and communication, and the ability to adapt to change and adversity, all while showing a reduction in workplace stress and sick days.
In a presentation deemed “a wake-up call for businesses,” “hilarious,” and “wildly unprofessional” by past audiences, David disrupts the status quo with groundbreaking studies in employee engagement, audience interaction, and anecdotes that will make your audience laugh while sharing how to integrate humor into your workplace culture. You don’t even have to be funny to do it!
|Combining 7 years of comedy and a passion for positive psychology, David Horning is on a mission to transform workplace culture as a keynote speaker. Over the past 5 years, David has inspired and entertained audiences at conferences, company retreats, and seminars across the country, with fresh and fun presentations that turn traditional leadership on its head with his use of humor.
He is the founder and Chief Experience Officer of Water Cooler Comedy, a company that transforms work into a creative and collaborative place through humor leadership keynote presentations, a comedy onboarding program, professional comedy performances for corporate and private events, and humor leadership training. In addition to speaking, he performs stand-up wherever his work takes him, and produces unique, live comedy shows in Cleveland such as “Six Courses of Comedy,” a culinary and comedy experience combining food and funny. David has been featured in the New York Comedy Festival, Cleveland Comedy Festival, and on Funny or Die.
