Introducing: Jo-Dee Walmsley, Simply Laughter (UK)

The Playing Human Conference on 27-28 September 2018 is promising a variety of outstanding speakers from around the world.

Last year in September we started introducing our key-notes and last month I announced that introductions were complete.

However, there is one more important person to introduce – Jo-Dee Walmsley, our MC! Please welcome our Master of Ceremonies, the Founder of Simply Laughter!

Jo-Dee Walmsley makes this bold idea real: As an experienced professional motivational speaker and energiser, she shows the path via her Laughter Program to more rewarding, creative and productive states of mind, perfected in recent years in keynotes and in workshops, tailored to Blue-Chip corporations and many more in Dubai.

She is now bringing her unique and vitalising charisma to the UK, Europe and beyond. Seriously? See for yourself.

Jo-Dee has mastered the art of communication, connecting with people through optimism and energy. Whether it is focused counseling 1 to 1, for a small group or energizing an audience of a thousand, Jo-Dee’s genuine personality and unique flair make participants feel engaged and relaxed in her sessions and comfortable in not only speaking out about the issues they are facing, but also fixing them.

“A stress-free life is the only way to real Success and Happiness in today’s world. Changing reactions to events will change the outcome and this change will come only from within.”

Jo-Dee Walmsley, Simply Laughter

Please visit Jo-Dee on www.simplylaughter.com to learn more about her work.
