Decades ago, I purchased a distributorship from Tony Robbins. At ADL (Associated Distributor Lecturer), I asked Tony Robbins, what he believed about teaching a workshop and training folks. What are your top 10 beliefs about training. I was kind of surprised, he said, I believed you Educate folks first. Give them what they came for, he suggest they came for something else:

  1. Entertainment. They came to be entertained.  If they have fun, they will want more. (Can Not argue that point).
  2. Sell. Your job is to sell products, or concept or ideas. So get good at influence. Successful business requires your dedication to selling. Even if all you are selling are your idea and concepts.
  3. Educate them. Strategies and techniques.

Marshall Sylver says, laughter leads to sales. It is a good to sprinkle humor, tasteful jokes and even funny videos and slides into your presentation. Here are a few I use. Become a student of humor:
