Reclaim your business ‘mojo’ with some tricks of the comedy trade.
This free workshop will support you to explore techniques to communicate memorably and creatively within your communities and networks.

Facilitated by Lynne Parker, founder of Funny Women and Kirstin Miller, Comedy in the Community Project Lead and local business woman. 

As a Rochester based not-for-profit business, we empower a community of women to express themselves more confidently so that they can stand out in both their professional and personal lives.

Lynne, who founded Funny Women, 20 years ago, has worked with thousands of women through the annual Funny Women Awards and runs her workshops and events for organisations and companies including NatWest, Canada Life, Airbandb,  Havas Lynx, and MHS.  Funny Women’s HERlarious programme aimed at the workplace reflects the ideals of Funny Women, helping women to perform, write, create and do business with humour.

In this workshop Lynne deploys some of the tried and tested tricks of the comedy trade to provide insights and inspiration for professional women who want to take on leadership roles, speak in public and tell their story. The focus is on  self-belief and developing personal skills to to run or start a business, take on a leadership role or seek promotion. We are particularly interested in those of you who stand back from taking on community leadership roles due to a lack of confidence – Medway is full of amazing women and we’re here to stand by your side.

 This workshop is free to attend thanks to funding from Medway Council and the UK Government Levelling Up initiative as part of Funny Women’s Comedy in the Community programme.

There are only 30 spaces available and we are requesting that you make a donation to our chosen charity – The Friends of the Wisdom Hospice.
