Karyn Buxman

I enjoyed sitting in the back of the room and watching the audience rock with laughter. You have a wonderful gift for imparting great practical advice and worldly wisdom by poking fun at everyday life. Your involvement as a presenter was a key component to the success of our conference.

The Psychology of Illusion

Magic is much more than sleight of hand. It’s the ability to guide perspective, spotlight influence, and challenge belief systems. With humor, heart, and captivating showmanship, Vinh Giang transforms these three powerful components and shares how creating and cultivating the RIGHT influence in our lives can make the difference between tremendous success or limited mediocrity. What we know in this world is that everything that once seemed impossible can be reimagined and overcome. It takes suspending old belief systems. Unlocking mindsets. Innovating. Deliberate and definitive action. And yes, even a little magic. Invite wonder and unlock limitless potential in your team by inviting Vinh to speak at your next event.

Lead with Levity: Strategic Humor for Successful Leaders

[Leadership: Keynote/breakout/workshop]

Successful people in business, politics and life in general have something in common: they understand that humor is an important trait for effective leaders. Ronald Reagan was a master at using humor on the world stage; the characters in M*A*S*H used humor to retain their sanity amid horrendous conditions; and your audience can learn how to use humor effectively in their daily work lives. Properly used, humor is a dynamic strategy that enhances communication, strengthens resilience, and increases engagement. Karyn uses (hysterical) personal anecdotes, (solid) medical research, and (practical) tips to help your audience leverage levity in the service of better leadership.

*New Book: Lead with Levity will be released Spring 2015 and be available for pre-purchase. Multiple book discounts available. Call to discuss.

Build a Better Brain Through Humor

[Inspiration/Health/Business: Keynote/breakout/workshop]

Scientists have shown that the health of our brain plays a crucial role in our overall health and resilience; our ability to perform and succeed; our ability to connect and be significant; and our overall happiness. Author, RN, and neurohumorist, Karyn Buxman, will share tactics on how to practice humor strategically to improve our brains and experience better health, wealth, and happiness.

Funny Means Money! Humor as a Serious Business Strategy

[General Business/entertainment: Keynote or breakout]

Do you think that humor and business don’t go together? Think again! There’s a good reason why American Express paid Jerry Seinfeld millions of dollars to star in their ads. They know that “While logic tells, emotion sells” and that humor is the quickest route to the emotions. In this keynote you will learn: How humor functions as a leadership tool, a sales aid, and a customer service strategy; how humor goes to the bottom line; the neuroscience behind how and why humor bypasses people’s logic circuits, and influences their buying decisions through emotion; and specific strategies for utilizing humor in your business and your life.

Amazed & Amused: Strategies of the Sane & Successful

[Inspiration/Entertainment: Keynote]

Success is not measured only in dollars and cents, but also in the moments that you live amazed and amused. Customers are not really “yours” until they have been amazed and/or amused by your products, your services, or your people. Leadership finds its inspiration not in duty, but in grasping the amazing power of one’s vision and will, and in motivating the amusing diversity of many people’s personalities and skills. Bestselling author, business consultant, and observer of the human condition Karyn Buxman will take you on a life-changing journey of humor and hope.
