Welcome to LAF Tech
We’re glad you’re here!
Have you ever had one of those experiences where you watch your favorite speaker, event presenter or entertainer and think to yourself, “I wish I could do that?” Well guess what, you can! LAF Tech, which stands for “Learn About Funny Techniques,” exists to show you how.
If you aren’t leveraging humor in a powerful and effective way during any form of speaking opportunity you’re faced with each day, you need us. Engagement training is our specialty!
LAF Tech isn’t just for business owners or entrepreneurs, it’s applicable to any person who wants to become a better communicator by being heard, and most important – remembered.
Our Mission is a simple one: Funny is hard, but we’ve cracked the code to help make our Six Methods of Humor™ accessible to everyone who wants to become a better, funnier and more engaged speaker or presenter.
What is this LAF Tech thing, anyway?
What We Do.
Why We Do It.
Why You Should Do It
In just under 5 years, we’ve helped over 400+ people learn all or portions of our Six Methods of Humor™ that we train from. All of our programs are engaging, challenging, educational, fun, spirited and the support from one another is unmatched. You’ll experience a wide-range of tailored improvisational exercises, method-specific education, direct coaching, and multiple speaking opportunities in front of your supporting group. In some cases, there are project assignments that carry over week-to-week.
Meet the Founders of LAF Tech
Marcelle Allen, Co-Founder
Marcelle’s journey when developing LAF Tech included her need to find and embrace humor and comedy amidst grief and tragedy. When she found Brian on a Toastmaster stage, he became an immediate source of much-needed laughter and comedic relief. Once they joined in a work-environment partnership, LAF Tech was the inevitable result. Plus, she’s sorta’ bossy and he‘s afraid of her.
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. Marcelle believes that every individual could benefit from learning and leveraging ‘yes and’ techniques in their journey.
She’s committed to showcasing the remarkable benefits and strategies of how humor can help all of us, and while she’s incredibly modest about this – she’s a dynamic and engaging speaker and trainer as well!
Brian Trendler, Founder
With the creation of LAF Tech, he and co-founder, Marcelle Allen, have created a much-needed bridge between the “lack of access” of humor-based methods to applying them in real life situations. Both Brian and Marcelle are the primary facilitators and trainers at both LAF Tech Mini Workshops, as well as the larger-scale Corporate Trainings. His quick-wit, charm, and command of any stage makes him an experience to watch, and a fantastic person to learn from.
