KEYNOTES

Roberte Hawke “Laugh It Off: Harnessing Humour at Work!

Laugh It Off: Harnessing Humour at Work will teach your team how to use humour to reduce their level of stress, improve their mental health and increase their productivity. Using the core values of improvisation and over 20 years of experience as a comedian, Robert Hawke will show your team how to use laughter as their secret weapon at work.

After Rob had surgery for cancer he was in trouble. He was depressed, angry and unable to cope. He had to learn resilience techniques that would help him FAST. He did. After his recovery, he used some of the same methods he’d used onstage for 20 years to inspire groups of people in literally life threatening situations. Rob has inspired and entertained groups in health care, the financial services industry and provincial associations to name a few.
