Laughing together is as close as you can get to somebody without giving them a hug. Laughing together can change everything—and Dr. Barreca’s presentations, workshops, lectures, and public conversations about life’s most fascinating–and most complex—topics will get your business, bookclub, or organization fully engaged with ideas, laughter, and one another.
As an expert in working with all types of groups and themes, Gina customizes her talks to address your particular group’s specific needs. She doesn’t use powerpoint or any other technologies, needing only a microphone and a Diet-Coke to deliver talk because she knows that connecting with an audience means looking at their expressions and reacting to their individual responses in real-time. Your audience will feel seen and heard even as they watch and listen, because the conversation Gina offers always goes both ways. She adapts her work so that her message on your behalf is both successful and memorable.
Offering new perspectives and original takes on a range of subjects, Gina keeps it light as well as enlightening. Dr. Barreca knows that laughter is essential in terms of being able to cope with the stresses and pressure of everyday life. Thirty-five years of work in and on the use of humor in everyday life, she knows that it helps to establish and reinforce a shared sense of community; it enhances a sense of self-esteem within a new or established community; it helps everyone to deal effectively with change. Humor demonstrates an attractively creative, inventive, and flexible approach to complex situations, difficult decisions, and nearly impossible tasks–in other words, humor helps us handle what we do all the time.
Dr. Barreca’s events are welcoming, inclusive, engaging, and incomparably engaging. Available to appear in-person and via most virtual platforms, you can email Gina today to discuss dates, themes, fees, and more.
