Humour

At Engage Presentations we believe that a good dose of humour should be taken daily and at every presentation. We started to develop a collection of what we consider entertaining clips. We invite you to share these and by all means suggest other clips we should include on our site. Presentation experts state that adding the proper variety of humour to a presentation can help to make the audience more receptive. Humour (successfully delivered) has the added benefit of putting the speaker more at ease.

This is why many experts suggest using humour at the opening of a presentation to “break the ice”. Considerable research has been conducted to identify the relationship between the use of humour and learning outcomes. It has been argued that humour is useful in facilitating attention and comprehension*.

If you have ever attended a boring presentation (Death by PowerPoint) you will relate to some (hopefully not all!) of the comics below.

Have a piece of humour that you would like to share? We encourage you to contact us with your suggestions. Please remember to credit the author(s) of the work or the link to the source website.

We look forward to seeing your contributions!
