HERlarious: Creative Voices
February 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm GMT
Do you have the confidence to speak in public?
Empowering you to find your voice.
Less than 3% of ads depict women in leadership roles, being intelligent or having a sense of humour. It’s no wonder that women lack the confidence to put themselves forward as experts or spokespeople when it comes to speaking on public platforms or in the media.
Women are by nature practical, strong, creative and nurturing and have proven to be the backbone of family and business life during the global pandemic. Yet we’re not as vocal about our achievements and successes as we should be. This event is all about standing up to stand out and giving each other the space to find our voice.
Funny Women is on a mission to bring its brand of feminine creativity and fun to the workplace. This is the first of a new season of HERlarious events with an online format that maintains our unique blend of workshops, panel discussion and, of course, entertainment, designed to reboot your inner creativity, boost your confidence and discover your voice.
Brought to you in partnership with Mediatel, IAAUK and Kantar.
This event is open to anybody of any gender who would like to express their ideas more confidently and freely using some of the tricks of the comedy trade.
If you are a first-jobber, intern, returner to the workplace, furloughed, made redundant or simply in need of a change of direction then a comedy fix is guaranteed to boost your confidence, whatever your level!
We can promise you a fun event interacting online with comedy professionals where you can get valuable advice on how to ‘perform’, work independently, bring your ideas to life and develop techniques to communicate more effectively. We will cover creating your own material, interpreting body language, storytelling, developing a strong narrative and finding your unique voice in an increasingly competitive business environment.
You will be able to take part in two workshops to boost your skills and confidence levels. Choose from:
Stand Up to Stand Out with Rachel Creeger
Improvise to Succeed with Monica Gaga
Develop Your Own Personal Brand with Deb Leary
Pressure To Perform When Things Get Tough with Sajeela Kershi
Each workshop will be run by a facilitator with first-hand experience of the comedy industry.
Panel Discussion with creative industry and media experts: ‘Take yourself off mute and find your voice’.
with Lauren Allpress (AirBnB), Grace Lown (Kantar), Lisa Goodchild (Digilearning Foundation and Digiwoo) and hosted by Lynne Parker (Funny Women)
Plus, headline entertainment from comedimum and social media superstar Sophie McCartney aka Tired ‘N Tested!
