Free Webinar: Professional Standup Comics Teach Business Women How to Deal with Boardroom Hecklers
Many women in business meetings find themselves in the same position as standup comics – being interrupted, run over, and discredited. We standup comics called it being heckled; in the business world it’s called “manterrupted.”
During the first Presidential Debate, Donald Trump interrupted Hillary Clinton more than 51 times. Regardless of your political affiliation, business women can learn from how Sec. Clinton remained focused and got her ideas across. Clinton scored good points using a technique we standup comics use when confronted with a heckler interrupting us: validate and zing. When Trump heckled her for “over preparing for the debates”; she got applause by not being defensive, but rather validating his comment: “I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate. And yes I did. And you know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be president. And I think that’s a good thing.”
Join professional celebrity comics, Kira Soltanovich, Alycia Cooper, and Executive Business Coach Ora Shtull, for a webinar on how to handle hecklers in all the audiences of your career.
Kira is the first stand up comedian to shoot and release a one hour stand up special, “You Did This to Me, 7 months pregnant.” She has appeared on “The Jay Leno Show,” “Hello Ross! with Ross Mathews,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Last Comic Standing,” “Set List TV,” and “The World Stands Up” on Comedy Central. She has written for Joan Rivers, Scott Baio, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. And here’s an interesting fact, three of those people have dated each other.
Alycia’s comedy is a gift that she eagerly shares with friends, family and our dedicated service men and women overseas. Her global stand-up has entertained troops in Japan, Korea, Guam, Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Djibouti Africa. Alycia is a “Jill” of all trades and has written for the “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” and punched up scripts for TV and film. She was also the first female audience “warm-up” person for such notable TV shows as “Girlfriends,” “Wanda At Large,” “The Tyra Banks Show” and most recently, the Emmy-nominated, CBS morning panel show, “The Talk.”
