Prepare to be entertained during lunch on Monday, November 16, when author and comedienne Jan McInnis shows you how to use humor to handle change. Attendees will walk away laughing and learning how to diffuse tension, kick off difficult conversations, and facilitate communication through the use of humor.
Inspired by 15 years as a marketing director in the 9 to 5 world, Jan knows that learning doesn’t have to be boring! Jan has a knack for humorous analysis, which enables her to keep her audiences laughing.
Born in Washington D.C., Jan was in charge of the “Joke of the Day” for her junior high school lunch table. Not surprisingly, she majored in communications at Virginia Tech, where she was a disk jockey for the local radio station. Go here to read more.
