Thursday 21st September – 12:30 – 2pm

Are you ready to revolutionise the way you approach business challenges? Join us for an exhilarating workshop where comedy improvisation meets the world of business.

Join us with Luke Sorba from The Comedy School and discover how the power of laughter and spontaneity can unlock your team’s creativity, enhance business collaborations, and boost confident communication.

By creating a workplace culture that values and encourages laughter, you can foster a more engaging, connected, and productive environment for everyone involved.

In this one-of-a-kind event, facilitated by The Comedy School’s experienced comedy experts, you’ll embark on a journey of self-discovery and skill-building. You’ll learn valuable techniques to push the boundaries within your creative genius and develop the confidence to tackle any business situation with flair.

Don’t miss this opportunity to review your business approach by being productive but having a laugh along the way! Whether you’re a business leader, team member or aspiring entrepreneur, this workshop will equip you with the tools to navigate challenges with creativity, collaboration and unwavering confidence.

Why should I attend?

Our comedy workshop will encourage teamwork, collaboration, and creativity, highly relevant for SMEs that often rely on small, closely-knit teams to achieve their goals. The interactive nature of comedy can also create a fun and engaging atmosphere, fostering networking opportunities and team bonding among attendees. We believe this interactive and skill-focused event can provide greater value for their investment.
