I think it would be fair to say that as a species, we are well and truly attracted to things which are funny. For example, as children, we take pleasure in watching cartoons and animated films because they make us laugh, and because we find them humorous. As we get older, we enjoy watching sketches by comedians, or comical TV shows, so that we can get our desired dosage of humour. There are not many people out there who do not enjoy humour, and it is quite evident that the vast majority of people enjoy things a lot more, if they find them funny. The question arises: should motivational speakers be funny? On first glance, the answer seems obvious: Yes! One would say yes, because humour allows for relaxation and enjoyment, therefore meaning that one would enjoy the talk much more. On the other hand, however, it is difficult for some motivational speakers to be funny when they are dealing with difficult topics. It is, so it seems, not quite as straightforward as we first imagined. Hence, let us explore whether we should have funny motivational speakers.

 

A potential benefit of having a funny motivational speaker is that he or she will allow the audience to relax. By starting with a hilarious anecdote, or a quick fire round of jokes, a motivational speaker will allow their audience to relax, thus meaning that their mind will be able to relax. This should cause them to be fully focused on what the speaker is saying to them. Motivational speakers need the full attention of the audience, so that they can effectively transmit their message or advice. If an audience is relaxed, they are far more likely to pay attention to the message that the speaker is giving, hence meaning that they are far more likely to take the advice on board. One may argue, however, that the serious message may be lost among the small bits of humour which are permeating the atmosphere. Moreover, once the audience has been amused, they may find it hard to concentrate on what the motivational speakers are saying to them. In summary, even though funny motivational speakers can get their audiences to relax, they may lose their concentration, or cause them to not fully accept their message.

 

Funny motivational speakers are unique because they are able to make some very harrowing topics much easier to digest. Through their entertaining methods, they are able to slowly transmit messages about some difficult topics without causing distress or anxiety for audience members. This is a potential benefit of having funny motivational speakers, as opposed to having a regular motivational speaker. A funny motivational speaker will deliver his message in a calming manner, whereas a regular motivational speaker may cause his or her audience to panic and worry.

 

In conclusion, funny motivational speakers have good qualities. They can, for example, get an audience to relax and accept their message. They can also talk about difficult issues, whilst not making them seem overly difficult. It is for these reasons that I would say that we should have funny motivational speakers.To get in touch or for more information on Bianca Miller-Cole please email bookings@biancamiller.uk  , call 02086679519 or visit www.biancamiller.uk
