Skills for your needs

After more than a decade of hosting and producing shows and performing on stage, Markus has developed a wide range of skills that you can benefit from. Customize your workshop with the most relevant content. There are more than 20 modules to choose from. Examples include:

  • Warming up the audience
  • Using a microphone
  • Keeping the show on track when something goes wrong
  • Planning a lineup
  • Dealing with distractions
  • Making meetings fun

Flexible format

With its modular design, Leadership Lessons from the Comedy Club can be tailored to your needs. Each event could be a lunchtime presentation covering 1-2 modules, a fun-filled afternoon or a multi-day experience.

Because there is so much interaction between the participants, a face-to-face setting is recommended. However, many modules can be delivered via online video conferencing. A few of the modules are available for free on Markus’ YouTube channel.
