Caught in a Wood Chipper

Keynote speaking at it’s best! Part 3

–By Jan McInnis, Comedian and Keynote Speaker

And of course he told us about and showed us a lot of other useful tools that did not include tofu, but that will help us live life in a “beautiful state,” as he says. But what I really learned, aside from never wanting to hug another stranger again (for a few days anyway), is the value of attending a conference to connect with people face-to-face, take a break from the hectic pace, and pick up effective tools that will help me enjoy life more fully. And at the risk of being self-serving, because I keynote at so many conferences, I do encourage you to make time to attend professional events that feed your soul, because that’s just as important as catching up on your emails. And who knows, maybe you’ll pick up a tip or two that will help you if you ever find yourself caught in a wood chipper.

 Client Quote: “Having Jan McInnis as our opening keynote speaker was a perfect way to start our annual conference. She helped set the tone with her humor and her helpful ideas on using humor to deal with stressful situations. Throughout the remaining days of the meeting, members could be heard referencing her comments. We would highly recommend her to any group.”
