And today it is with a name that has sat on Kate’s bookshelf for years, and a Queensland local too. Marty Wilson is the author of More Funny, More Money all about how to incorporate humour into your business speaking – and why you should do it.
He’s a past pharmacist, stand up comic and now a speaker on resilience in change. In this enjoyable conversation, Marty re-affirms loads about what we already thought of speaking with humour, but also drops some fantastic new tools that both Kate and Thomas will be employing as soon as possible!
