Michael Kerr travels the world researching, writing, and speaking about inspiring workplaces and businesses that put humour to work to achieve outrageous results. Michael is the author of six books, including, most recently, The Humor Advantage: Why Some Businesses Are Laughing All the Way to the Bank. He lives in spectacular Canmore, Alberta, with his spectacular wife Claudine.
Michael has been a member of CAPS since 1999. He has spoken to more than a dozen chapters in North America, spoken at six of the international conferences, sat or stood on numerous CAPS committees, mentored numerous speakers over the years, wrote the mildly amusing back page column “Funny Business” for seven years for Speaking of Impact magazine, and most recently, got temporarily trapped in an elevator with Jeff Mowatt during a CAPS convention.
Value From CAPS
You’d think an old fart like me would have learned everything there is to know, yet I still gain amazing insights, ideas and inspiration from my fellow CAPS members. But the far greater value for me is belonging to a community of caring and sharing like-minded folks. It’s a cliché to say that this can be an isolating, lonely business and that no one understands what it is we really do, but, hey, it’s true! It’s the personal connections and deep friendships I have made over the years that continues to offer invaluable value that’s valuably invaluable.
