Learning through Laughter

Bob Owen, Humorist

Audience Comments

Bob spoke at our opening day ceremony when Lexington Community College and Central Kentucky Technical College came together for the first time. He immediately got everyone involved and engaged. Using humor and good solid advice, Bob kicked off our new year and our new institution on a high, positive and fun-filled note. He has a great message for everyone.”

Dr. Jim Kerley, President LCC/Central Kentucky Technical College

Bob the team builder. Like Bob the Builder, Bob Owen brings a wonderful spirit of collaboration to any team he is working with. Bob’s encouraging spirit, sense of humor coupled with his ability to turn motivation into goals with an action plan is a real asset to any team that chooses to host him. Our team benefited tremendously from his style, ideas and leadership. Can he build it? Yes he can!

Alex Carmichel, President, Kentucky United Methodist Children’s Home

Bob had everyone laughing. It is great to motivate people with encouraging words and praise but to do it by using laughter takes a special gift from God. He had the most positive energy about him.

Charity Wilson, Lyon County Chamber of Commerce

Bob Owen recently spoke to our management group and was very well received. His high energy level kept us interested and involved, even during an afternoon session. He also was thoroughly entertaining while presenting substantive information.

Susan Beth McKenzie, VP Human Resources, St. Mary’s Medical Center

I want to thank you for conducting a valuable workshop for our Mayors and Council members. The audience participation was evidence of your ability to work with individuals to bring out importation information, while making participants feel comfortable. If all our trainers were as flexible and able as you to develop workshops to meet specific needs, we would have more viable training.

Karen Butcher, Leadership and Training Manager, Kentucky League of Cities

We have had only positive feedback on Bob’s remarks. They were
“right on target” and given with humor and a flair that only you he can do.
Bob gave the best message for United Way of any in the past 10 years.

Steve Towler, Executive Director, Northeast Kentucky United Way

Bob has a high energy level, a magnificent sense of humor, and a relaxed presentation style and offers serious information in a memorable way.
