“Stand-up comedians can teach us a formidable array of skills for life and work – confidence, courage, charisma, engagement, impact, creativity, self-expression and of course humour – to name but a few.”
Gerry Thompson is a stand-up comedian, trainer in communication skills, best-selling author, and Huffington Post blogger.
Gerry has run Positive Comedy Training for twenty-five years, enabling people in all walks of life to develop their personal and professional skills for life and work, drawing from the learning potential of comedy and improvisation. He is passionate about helping people get their lives to work better, and be the very best they can be. His learning sessions are exciting, fun, and full of serious transformation.
Gerry’s books have sold over half a million copies in thirty languages. These include Cats are from Venus, Dogs are from Mars, a humorous parody of intimate human relationship, and his latest title, Inspirational Gamechangers published by Financial Times Publishing and recently appearing in Chinese language.
