I've always been a big supporter of our local chambers of commerce. As a member, you not only become a business insider but you get to hear from experts you wouldn't have otherwise.

My guest today is one of those experts I recently heard at the 102nd Sarasota Chamber Annual Meeting.

I'm happy to introduce Dr. Kerry Szymanski or "Dr. Kerry" as she is better known.

She is an entrepreneur, business consultant, and stand-up comedian who believes "Leading Through Laughter" is indeed a leadership skill that is needed in business today.

In this episode, you'll learn...

  • One thing most people don’t know about Dr. Kerry
  • How she discovered her passion for stand-up
  • Why business leaders should use humor as a management tool
  • A favorite story Dr. Kerry has from her work
  • Why you should reach out to Dr. Kerry
  • ... and much much more!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. It's my hope that you will listen, learn and connect!
