Putting fun into finance

Entertainment in Business, a company specialising in getting messages across using comedy, is sponsoring a comedy forum for financial services firms next month.

The event takes place at London&#39s Comedy Store from 2pm-4pm on November 28 and costs £65. It will feature Norman Pace, star of Hale & Pace, and scriptwriter Terry Morrison, who will demonstrate the effect that humour has on an audience.

Creative director Terry Morrison says: “The key question that all business presenters face is how much humour? What and when? Where should the line be drawn? Just how much humour, and when and where to draw the line, has always been the preserve of showbusiness professionals but we will be sharing these techniques with delegates, using real examples of where humour has successfully conveyed a business message or overcome a problem.”
