He also specialises in working one to one with C level leaders and keynote speakers (many of whom now give TED talks) – and in 2018 was speaker coach to the 3 top selling speakers in Europe. He is one of the most versatile and prolific creators on the London comedy scene, his comedy Octopus Soup is currently touring the UK>

Milner has run comedy workshops for The National Theatre, BBC comic relief Channel 4 and ITV, amongst many others.

A stand up approach to presenting

What drives most decisions is emotion, human understanding, empathy towards a client’s wants and needs, and the skill to land a good story.

Stand ups share many of these traits. They have the ability to connect, to “read” an audience, to engage emotionally, and through humour, share stories that resonate with their audience. This workshop is about practicing many of these skills and then applying them to business presenting.

Places are limited. Reserve yours at Eventbrite.

Praise for Jack Milner:

“I can’t tell you how constructive it was. The skills learnt translate into daily life and everyday business, not just presenting.”

Emma, Senior Account Manager, Grey Healthcare

“A brilliant , eye opening workshop.”

Daniel Fisher, Executive Creative Director, Adam & Eve DDB

“I came to the workshop thinking my presentation skills were honed and fairly good. But I learnt a vast amount of techniques and methods that will vastly improve my skills.”

Rafe Burchell, Art Director, DDB Remedy

“Just wanted to drop you an email with the collated feedback from this morning. I am thrilled that it was such a success. Both the turnout and the feedback was fantastic, so thank you. All feedback was either ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’. Typical of which was: ‘Fantastic. More practical advice in the course than I expected.’ “

Holly Tweddle, Head of Learning, IPA learning
