Humor: Unleashing Your Secret (Untapped) Marketing Tactic


Thursday, January 18, 7:30 a.m., Brio Tuscan Grille, Country Club Plaza


Is it possible for an employee newsletter to crack a smile? Or for a B2B blog post to elicit a chuckle?

Business communicators strive to get and keep their audience’s attention. If you make someone laugh – or even grin – you’ve succeeded. Whether your goal is employee engagement or the sale of a service, your foot is now in the door.

Learn how to stand out in the often dull and dour world of marketing and internal communications by connecting with human emotion.

In this breakfast seminar, two veteran communicators will share and show examples from the real world of business.

They’ll also explore: How do we connect with different styles of humor?

  • What is taboo?
  • What if we’re not funny?
  • When is trying to please everyone actually pleasing no one?

You’ve lived in Dullsville long enough. It’s time to calculate the ROI on humor and cash in.
