Speaking Topics
  • Lead with Levity: Strategic Humor for Successful Leaders

    [Leadership: Keynote/breakout/workshop] Approved by CIC for CE Credit Successful people—in business, politics and life in general—have something in common: they understand that levity is an important trait for effective leaders. Churchill, Kennedy and Reagan were all masters at using wit on the world stage; the characters in M*A*S*H used gallows humor to retain their sanity amid horrendous conditions; and your audience can learn how to use humor effectively in their daily work lives. Properly used, levity is a dynamic strategy that enhances communication, strengthens resilience, and boosts engagement. Karyn uses (hysterical) anecdotes, (solid) research, and (practical) tips to help your audience leverage levity in the service of better leadership.

  • Amazed & Amused: Strategies of the Sane & Successful

    Success is not measured only in dollars and cents, but also in the moments that you live amazed and amused. Customers are not really "yours" until they have been amazed and/or amused by your products, your services, or your people. Leadership finds its inspiration not in duty, but in grasping the amazing power of one's vision and will, and in motivating the amusing diversity of many people’s personalities and skills. Bestselling author, business consultant, and observer of the human condition Karyn Buxman will take you on a life-changing journey of humor and hope.

  • I’ve Got One Nerve Left—and You’re Standing on It

    Expanding responsibilities, shrinking budgets, cranky coworkers, family demands, too much to do and not enough time to do it! Is it any wonder that we’re all a little edgy? Find out how taking care of yourself can affect your sanity, your success and everyone’s bottom line. Learn how to get through the toughest of days and still remain smiling. Discover how to survive and thrive in a world of change.

  • When Funny Means Money: Humor as a Serious Business Strategy

    Do you think that humor and business don’t go together? Think again! There’s a good reason why American Express paid Jerry Seinfeld millions of dollars to star in their ads. They know that “While logic tells, emotion sells”—and that humor is the quickest route to the emotions. In this keynote you will learn: How humor functions as a leadership tool, a sales aid, and a customer service strategy; how humor goes to the bottom line; the neuroscience behind how and why humor bypasses people’s logic circuits, and influences their buying decisions through emotion; and specific strategies for utilizing humor in your business—and your life.

  • I Know You Think You Understood What You Thought I Said

    Whether you’re communicating one-on-one, in a small group, or before a large audience—humor can give you a serious advantage. Want to convey information? Do you need to deal difficult person? Do you want to avoid putting your foot in your mouth? Join Karyn Buxman for the opportunity to laugh and to learn how to ramp up the effectiveness of your communication and reap the rewards.
