Whether it’s going green or the myriad of new rules that govern our business, we are constantly reacting to a new playing field. And all of this change causes fear, tension and miscommunications. This is Jan’s most popular keynote, because she combines her hilarious comedy with PRACTICAL tips on dealing with change through using humor.
Jan will show you how to:
- diffuse tension instantly,
- kick off tough conversations
- facilitate communications
. . . all by using humor that you, yourself can do. And she’ll also give you the latest research between laughter and health – yes they’re actually studying this stuff!

Hey Jan! Thanks for a great key note speech and kick off to our annual FHIMA convention. In all my 25 years of HIM experience, I’ve not seen a large group of HIM professionals walk out of a meeting with such smiles on their faces. Your presentation was witty and enjoyable! I love your book- each time I pick it up to read, I’ll be thinking of you and our Tuesday morning hour of laughter! Thanks.

Thanks for helping to end our conference on a high note! Your message was uplifting and put everyone in a good mood for the rest of the day. All comments about your performance were positive, and the conference committee received accolades for having you there with us. We look forward to having you again at a future conference! H.S., California Association of Public Purchasing Officials
On our evaluations, people really welcomed you as a speaker. If I have the chance, I definitely will be recommending your services in the future (okay to use me as a reference, if you need it.). I thought it worked out well, for you to demonstrate all those humor techniques on us (the audience); then tell the audience what you just did in the form of the main tips you just demonstrated. One other idea for the future: Have people do a reality check on their own state of mind towards the end of your presentation. On evaluations, people implied that they felt lighter; more ready to receive information for the rest of the day. L.K., President-Elect, Colorado Healthcare Risk Management Association
Jan McInnis truly is a funny lady and helped our organization to Find the Funny in Change even during a time when K-12 educators might not be able to find anything to laugh about regarding public education. She was a joy to have at our conference and we would welcome her back anytime. C.R., Missouri Association of School Business Officials
Jan was the star attraction at our annual conference, she was upbeat & topical and had the audience in stitches. She was also a true pleasure to work with; professional, timely and low maintenance. S.G., American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management
