Nancy Vogl Speakers Bureau

Laughter... it’s good for our health, it’s good for our wealth (translation: bottom line), and it’s been proven that people remember more when they laugh along the way. Many professional speakers weave humor into their presentations, because, lets face it, life can be amusing. But these presenters use humor as the major carrier of their message.  What could more fun than spicing up a meeting with a little hilarity?  We think it’s vital.
