Todays guest is a lady who believes that there is nothing better in life than a good laugh.
And although many of us do this, when a close relative falls over, or some other unexpected rib tickler occurs not many of us ever think of bringing this merriment into our business lives.
You don't go to work to enjoy yourself, appears to be the mantra that so many people live their lives by after all.
But when you consider the health benefits that chuckling can bring to you, such as a huge boost to the immune System by releasing endorphins, protecting the heart by improving the function of blood vessels, and helping to bring about better sleep then its simply not something to laugh about.
We should all be doing it more, and certainly making sure we do it whilst at work too.
And so our guest over the last fifteen years has taken this approach into the corporate world where, she coaches individuals and teams to reconnect, communicate, and be more productive...through humor, laughter, and improvisation.
She wants us to find the childlike side of our characters and bring it once more to the fore.
Be the person we were before life became serious and paying the bills became our number one focus.
And with the honour of being crowned the American Laughing Champion of 2013, where she fought her way to the top prize by demonstrating such high class cackling as best maniacal laugh, best multiplex laugh and the best laughing fit, there is no doubt she has the credentials to educate, and inspire whilst entertaining too.
So when did she find that there was a need to bring this kind of thinking into the corporate arena?
And what the hell is the best multiplex laugh?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Julie Ostrow .
