Featuring Karyn Buxman

Hilton Milwaukee City Center, Crystal Ballroom

$38, Pre-Registration Required

Crises come in all shapes and sizes: personal, family, organizational, community, regional, national and global. Experiencing a crisis is no joke—but it may be a laughing matter. Lack of focus, inability to concentrate, anxiety, forgetfulness, brain fog: all these can be warning signs that your brain has been hijacked, and that can be dangerous, or even deadly for you and your students. Discover how to harness humor to distract, relate, reframe and refuel to empower yourself and those you care for.

In this keynote, Karyn Buxman will cover:

  • How to harness humor and your brain to reverse an amygdala hijack.
  • How to use humor to strengthen and improve your communication so your message can be heard.
  • How to use humor to build your mental bandwidth and boost your physical resilience.

Karyn is a TEDx speaker, successful author, brain-based high-performance coach, former school board member – and a neurohumorist (she lives at the intersection of humor and the brain).

As a global expert in strategic humor for business, Karyn helps high performers go from great to mastery. From the Mayo Clinic to the Million Dollar Round Table, organizations around the world hire Karyn to educate, inspire and entertain their audiences again and again. She’s one of 260 people (and only 55 women) in the world to be inducted into the National Speakers Association’s Speaker Hall of Fame. Her latest book, “Funny Means Money: Strategic Humor for Influence & World Domination,” will be published by Forbes Books in 2022.

Karyn is serious about humor!
