When organizing a public speaking event, a surefire way to maintain audience involvement is through the clever use of humor. However, skillfully adding humor in a keynote is no walk in the park.

It’s one of the reasons why you should consider hiring professional speakers. They are experts when it comes to communicating a meaningful message while also giving the audience a good laugh.

Read on to find out more about three hand-picked suggestions for speakers who will make an excellent addition to your event.

1. Conor Cunneen-IrishmanSpeaks

Conor’s career as a keynote speaker encompasses close to 30 years of experience. During this time, he has come to perfect his “brand promise” which he describes as 4E, as in Energizing, Educative, Entertaining and Easy.

Here is a sample of what he can do on stage to engage audiences:

Conor puts a lot of thought into planning his performance and cooperates with the event planner to conceive the ideal show for any audience.

This is a trait that separates the professional speakers from the rest.

It is his passion to improve the productivity and performance of his audience – and he does it in a highly humorous and engaging way.

With such a firebrand dedication to providing real value, you know that Conor will do the best job of giving the audience insightful advice which has real-life applications.

2. Brad Nieder

The doctor is in the house. Brad Nieder is a corporate speaker with over 15 years of experience in the entertainment industry.

A licensed MD, Dr. Brad’s signature style of comedy involves adding medical lingo or punchlines into his keynote speeches. And the audience loves it.

Have a look for yourself:

Is your target audience dealing with the everyday strains of the corporate environment? No need to worry! With a keynote aptly titled “Laughter is the Best Medicine,” Dr. Brad has a “tablet” for many common issues that arise at the workplace.

In addition to pure entertainment value, attendees will also benefit from his inspiring talks and maybe get some wellness advice on the side.  How many professional speakers manage to make that kind of impact?

3. Karen McCullough

Karen started working pretty early in life. From a young age, she was her mother’s assistant at work. This experience enabled her to gain valuable insight into what it takes to grow through collaboration and working as a team. However, that was only the beginning.

Here’s a video that will help you shape a better understanding of the kind of content Karen delivers on stage.

As you probably saw from the video above, Karen’s talks are chock full of insightful information and advice for anyone working within the structure of a team.

One of the points she makes is that large teams often have a generational problem, where team members are having a difficult time interacting with each other due to a significant age gap between them.

This affects the cohesion of the group and their overall productivity.

Karen’s solution to problems like this is to encourage communication and add a pinch of humor, for good measure. This approach makes her an instant hit among attendees.
