Let’s just be honest - stress sucks! It sucks the joy out of life, depletes our energy, creates tension with other people and makes life miserable.

But there is a solution! Laughter, humour, fun and positive energy help us stress less, enjoy more and get the results we want. Laughter helps us access vitality and creativity, improves our communication and connection with others, lets us express who we truly are and makes life a joyful experience.

And here’s some really good news - you can learn the skills and strategies that will increase the levels of laughter, humour, play and positive energy you experience on a daily basis.

In the Stress Less Laugh More workshop renowned comedian and laughter expert Anthony Ackroyd will guide you into a new life with less stress, anxiety and worry and more laughter, fun, happiness, energy and success.

 “After a stressful year for the sector, we thought Anthony would be just the tonic. We were sensationally correct. Feedback from our members is glowing with many managers wanting a happy and harmonious workplace which increases productivity sending whole groups for laughter training. On a personal level people have remarked on the wonderful experience and the lessons to be learnt. From ATEM’s viewpoint a harmonious workplace is creative, optimistic and resourceful.

Anthony is very funny, as a session with such a title should be, but he immerses it with the science of laughter and presents it with an exuberant, high-spirited and enthusiastic energy. We highly recommend this program.”

They loved him! As convenor I found Anthony extremely organised, reliable and prepared, a convenor’s dream. He is simply fantastic!”



“Stress Less Laugh More was an entertaining and educational way of understanding how to get great personal and professional outcomes by thinking and acting differently. The combination of Anthony's comedic talent and extensive research on the amazing benefits of laughter resulted in a powerful and enriching experience for all our staff. In response to this workshop with my management team, I have been appointed the 'Stress Less Laugh More' ambassador, with a mission of ensuring humour is a component of each of our meetings.”
