KEYNOTE SPEAKER, COMEDY & HUMOR SEMINARS: 

Humor can help people deal with the every day trials and tribulations as well as triumphing over tragedy.  It is a great aid to reduce stress and promote physical well-being and it's been said, "Laughter is the best medicine".  Barnhart's speeches and seminars are inspiring, interactive, educational, motivating but most of all entertaining, fun and funny!  Humor can ignite laughter and Barnhart's positive humor and improv workshops increase creativity and relieve stress while building and bonding teamwork.

A large executive search firm conducted a recent survey of top executives who earned more than $250k per year.  What the survey found out was that these executives believed their communication skills were the most important factor that helped them excel to their position. Mastering the use of humor techniques puts a fine polish on your public speaking skills, which can help propel you to the top of the speaking profession and business world.

According to Bob Orben, Former Director of the White House Speech writing Department and Special Assistant to President Gerald Ford, 'Business executives and political leaders have embraced humor because humor works. Humor has gone from being an admirable part of a leader's character to a mandatory one.'

The Advanced Public Speaking Institute says, "There are many benefits you can derive from using humor when speaking. Keep in mind that these benefits only help you reach your ultimate purpose for making the presentation. They are not purposes themselves unless, of course, you are only interested in entertaining."

The practical use of humor in your public speaking can help with the following:

* Connects you with your audience * Makes you more "likeable"
* Creates an interest in your product or topic

* Keeps audience's attention

* Helps to empahsize bullet points and ideas

* Disarms hostily and boredom

* Helps to get your point across without creating hostility * Makes information more memorable
* Paints pictures in the audience's mind * Shows you don't take yourself too seriously
* Lightens up heavy material * Makes a positive impression
* Increased likleyhood of being asked back * Higher evaluations and more sales
* Helps audience relate to facts and figures * You'll make a higher income
* You'll be happier * Your audience will be happier
