General Information

Joke Master

This role sets a fun tone for the meeting. One of the most powerful tools that a speaker has is the use of humour. Laughing is healthy, gets the energy flowing and helps people to be more open to the speaker's message.


*Prepare a  joke to deliver when you are called on during the meeting.

*Time yourself to make sure it is 1 minute or less.

*Avoid the same topic areas that you would avoid for a speech.

*Since it is only 1 minute, this is a good opportunity to memorize the joke , so you can concentrate on delivery and timing, critical components to maximize the effect of your humour. Remember to use pauses and pacing effectively.

*Test your joke  out on a friend or family member before doing it in the meeting.


*When called upon by the Chairman, deliver your  joke. You have 1 minute.

*Pause after the punchline to support, enhance, and receive any laughter the joke  may have generated before sitting down.
