I am a naturopath, kinesiologist and Yoga teacher. I am in front of a class of students many times a week, and have been for years, but before taking a series of Stand and deliver sessions with Caroline I always felt a separation with the audience and an underlying self consciousness. Caroline helped me get insights into the core of this issue and this freed me up. She taught me in her delightfully funny manner how to relax more and engage with the audience in a more authentic and confident way.I would certainly recommend Caroline to anyone wanting to up skill to become a compelling, passionate, confident speaker. Caroline models all these qualities with ease and it rubs off.

Workplace Humour – The line between humour and a bad joke is hard to see sometimes. In a workplace setting, misplaced ‘humour’ can be an expensive error. People love humour so let’s harness it well.Good humour builds rapport. People feel comfortable, relaxed and engaged, as well as alert! Recognise and use comments with group interaction techniques, people will learn and remember when you acknowledge their ideas and contributions. Used correctly, workplace humour can become an integral part of your workplace culture and help to build trust and cooperation.I so enjoyed being trained by some of the world's’ finest comedy writers and performers visiting the UK, that I brought the first stand-up comedy training courses to Wellington in 1997 (when stand-up was new and shiny in the capitol). Since then I have performed MC, ensemble, solo and as a comedy festival Diva, taught storytelling, media skills and presentation techniques. This unique background in public relations and performance disciplines,disciplines enables me to share with you how to successfully harness language and humour for better workplace communications.
