AA-ISP Training Tuesday: Your Sales Presentation is a Joke

Author: Marshall Chiles, Founder & CEO, HumorWins
Posted: October 11th, 2016


Why use humor? As Dr. Jim Lyttle said in 1977, "Humor increases persuasion's effectiveness". And guess what? It's still true today.

If you're selling, you're persuading. Marshall Chiles shows you his simple and proven methodologies of adding humor to selling in order to be more engaging, likable, and one of the cool kids.

Marshall is a YPO award-winning presenter and his Amazon best selling book Your Presentation is a Joke: Using Humor to Maximize Your Impact has a rating of 4.8/5 stars with over 60 reviews... and four of those people, he doesn't even know!

In addition to being the co-founder of The Speakers Guild of America, Marshall owns The Laughing Skull Lounge comedy club and festival in Atlanta, GA. As you can see, he is building a comedy empire to pass off to his sons so they can run it into the ground.

Marshall loves comedy, education, and business...but not always in that order. He is a professional international comedian who has owned comedy clubs and festivals around the country. He combines his 20+ years of entrepreneur success and 14 years of stand-up comedy experience to inspire and help businesses apply more comedy and humor to their culture and communications. Currently, Marshall is living in Atlanta and is available for talks, workshops, interviews, and parole hearings.

His comedy and business pedigree includes founding and building several comedic enterprises such as: The Laughing Skull Lounge (Atlanta, GA), The Funny Farm Comedy Club (Roswell, GA), Morty’s Comedy Club (Indianapolis, IN), The Laughing Devil (New York, NY), Asbury Park Comedy Festival (Asbury Park, NJ), The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival (Atlanta, GA), and Laughing Skull Studios (Atlanta, GA).
