About Our Guests
Marcelle’s journey when developing LAF Tech
included her need to find and embrace humor
and comedy amidst grief and tragedy. Famous for
leading with quotes like, “Humor heals,” she knows
the truth behind those words and chooses to laugh
and find the joy in others, versus the alternatives.
She’s curious, supportive, encouraging, and a techie
by nature. She knows anyone who’s developing a
digital presence must remain remarkable and
memorable for their brand to take off and knowing
the fundamentals of improv will bring courage and
resiliency to any presenter. Also, when you meet her,
ask her what her nickname is.
If there could be a PHD or Degree for laughter,
Brian’s earned it. While suffering through countless
corporate jobs in the tech industry, management
and sales, he realized what was wrong with
everyone: no one laughed. To their detriment, humor
is rarely ever attempted to brought into the business
world. This had to stop! Soon after Brian and Marcelle
Allen met, they created LAF Tech and now provide
Mini Workshops, larger-scale Corporate Trainings,
and individual Laughter Coach sessions. Brian finds
humor in everything, from his experiences onstage
20+ years ago as a comedian, to business owner,
small business serial networker, and now Laughter
Coach. His quick-wit, charm, and command of any
stage makes him an experience to watch, and a fantastic person to learn from.
