A Must-Have Skill for Working Professionals: Stand-up Comedy
Thursday, September 24
7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Many people don’t realize the powerful life skills they’d take away from a stand-up comedy class. Comedy is now required for all Harvard and Stanford Business MBA students. It’s about more than being funny, it helps you become more comfortable with who you are and more present with others. It’s also a “secret weapon” for any working professionals, as it has been proven people are 2.5 times more likely to remember what you tell them if you make them laugh. Attendees will learn real world skills that are invaluable for any working professional. Stand up will improve your public speaking, pitches, presentations, and more importantly, increase your confidence. This is an exclusive invitation for Pace University and Berkeley College alumni.
