Listen UP – Laugh it UP Hits Williamson County Young Professionals

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

RIK ROBERTS LISTEN UP LAUGH IT UP

“Rik Roberts, a professional corporate comedian and keynote speaker worked with Williamson Inc. to spearheaded a YP “Improv” Night where we learned through guided exercises with Rik how to be better listeners, conflict resolution, and teamwork skills. We had a blast and everyone was laughing all night. Everyone walked away with new perspective that they felt they could use in their work lives. I highly recommend switching up a chamber luncheon and trying something like this out.”

Mayberry Method Rik Roberts

“Rik Roberts presented the “Mayberry Method” to our group.  He was very well received by all level of employees.  Not one person, in the audience of 190, lost interest during the 90 minutes he “entertained” and educated our group.  We even had an added bonus of unexpected interaction of an official Kansas Highway Patrol Officer that assisted in his great message of how to react/respond when in an unusual or difficult situation.  Many employees have requested to have him back again!

Podfest 2017 Conference in Orlando, FL

Monday, March 13th, 2017

rik roberts podfest

What a fun time I had in Orlando, FL at Podfest! As a podcaster myself (School Of Laughs podcast available on iTunes | Stitcher | iHeart Radio and at www.SchoolOfLaughs.com) I loved meeting others who enjoy communicating to their “tribe”.

As a comedian, I got to share with them how to engage your audience by using stand-up comedy techniques. I met so many interesting people, including people who have podcasts about “puke stories”, and one guy whose podcast helps people fall asleep!

US POULTRY & EGG

This all-feather organization has your best interests in mind. This was the second time I had the privilege of speaking to the group. With feed mill managers coming from all across the US, this seminar helps update the members on new regulations, developments and quality control steps.

I was happy to infuse some humor showing how a light hearted moment around the work place can increase productivity, facilitate problem solving and make work a place you want to be. Thanks US PULTRY & EGG!
