Stand Up to Stand Out – helping you to find your voice

Submitted by on August 2, 2010 – 12:51 pmNo Comment

Humour is a valuable form of self expression that women can develop. Funny Women helps women to explore their funny side to build self confidence, improve relationships and enhance communications.

Over the last seven years, over 1,000 women have found their comic voice through Funny Women’s workshops and live events.

Funny Women have now taken what they’ve learned along the way and created Funny Women in Business ‘Stand Up to Stand Out’ workshops and business events.
With more women compelled to make speeches at social events and professional women increasingly sharing their experiences on public and media platforms, confidence and communication skills are essential for achieving personal and professional success.

Find your voice – and explore your funny side

During this evening, a range of exciting and interactive techniques are introduced to help with:

* presenting and delivering your message in a personal and compelling style
* developing ‘material‘
* overcoming nerves and increasing self confidence

Lynne Parker, founder of Funny Women developed Funny Women in Business to offer training and coaching for women based on stand up comedy techniques to improve self confidence and presentation skills in their professional lives.

“I have seen how much stand up helps women to become more assertive and confident in their every day lives. We have been running comedy workshops for women alongside the Funny Women Awards for the last two years and our business programme is an extension of this activity.”

What previous attendees have said:

“The tools and insights you used were very inspirational and left everyone in the room with a huge smile on their face and a different view on how they can use their skills and humour to great effect.”

“Your workshop has given my confidence a boost and perhaps I will be a little more able to hold my own in a very, very, very male dominated company. What I need is to be able to attend a workshop about every month just to keep topping up my confidence!”

“Just wanted to say thank you for what a boost last Wednesday has given me. Don’t think my other half quite believed me when I got home and told him! Thinking of ways that I can use my renewed liking of public speaking now :-).”

“The workshops are good places for women to share and feel like ‘it’s not just me who feels like this which I found brilliant.”

“I enjoyed the evening very much indeed. It was great fun, relaxed, lovely to meet other people and I gained a lot from it personally.”

The workshop will take place: 25th August 2010 from 6pm to 8pm at Quartermile, Edinburgh.
