Get to know Jon Selig
Meet the MBA alumnus who found a way to integrate his love for comedy and the business world. After working for a large organization for several years, Jon knew he needed to find a way to allow his creative side and love for comedy to become a part of his job. He now runs his own business teaching sales teams and other organizations how to integrate (tasteful) humour into their work – and still finds time for standup comedy. Hear Jon’s story and what his advice would be for those looking to step outside the box and act on a creative idea.
A single joke (or “humour”) that highlights a problem that sales reps solve for prospects grabs attention, shines a light on a challenge, triggers an emotional reaction, and helps them start new conversations across various outreach channels. — Jon Selig
