If they are laughing, they are listening. Humour is a wonderful leveller and a great way of bonding with others. Throughout history, humour has proven its importance in life particularly in times of adversity. When you’re laughing with people it brings you together and rids any nervous tension or worry. With a background in news and sports presenting and broadcasting, Jeremy Nicholas now specialises in helping professional speakers to add humour to their presentations. As a professional speaker, are you spreading your message using humour? Are you ‘talking funny’?
“The other thing about humour is that it anchors a story in your memory. The humour and the story is almost like nectar and pollen and bees. You're attracting them into your flower because they're after the pollen but then inadvertently they're spreading it.”
Jeremy Nicholas adds impact to communications, presentations and pitches. He helps clients use humour without losing status, damaging their credibility or causing offence. He’s a regular keynote speaker, MC and after-dinner speaker, with tales of his long career in BBC News broadcasting. Jeremy runs the online programme Talking Funny For Speakers as well as mentoring and coaching professional speakers. He’s a recipient of a Sony Radio Award, a New York Academy Award, the Professional Speaking Award of Excellence and The Badger Of Honour award. Jeremy lives in London with his wife Jeanette and dog Jimmy Chew.
