We recently had Shannon Spring and her company Just Humor Me come to our studio at Painting With a Twist and work with our staff of artists on Out Fun Your Competition?. It was a team building and an inspirational event for us. Since we are asked to do team building events at our studios, we had great fun learning ways we could incorporate new ideas into our classes. We learned how important it is for us to set the tone for our classes with humor. It was an interactive presentation with our artists participating in several fun events that reinforced the points that she was making about the importance of having fun in the workplace. It was well worth the time and cost and our artists are still talking about the humorous things we can work into our classes.

What a difference you made to our usual staff meeting! Reminding us to focus on our common goals and look for ways to communicate and cooperate better as a team is going to benefit us and our clients. Your clever, funny style and personalized approach had us laughing and learning. The Realtor Showdown was a great way to enjoy a friendly competition and get us thinking creatively.
We had high expectations and you exceeded them! It was very funny, people really related to what you were saying, they really got into it! It's clear you really understood our business and put a lot of time into customizing the material and games. We want to incorporate this into our annual training summit. Adding humor to our program really made a difference.
Thank you for a fantastic day of fun. We really appreciate the customization of games and how much went into creating a special day for us. We're still laughing and talking about it and would love to do one of your other programs too. We're happy to serve as a reference anytime!

It was interesting, interactive, and high energy, with useful information and lots of laughing and humor. It was also great to see everyone shooting water guns at each other and having a good time, and we're a tough group to please!
It was a much needed light hearted morning, great examples, stories, and ideas. I can&apo;t wait to apply what I learned.
A refreshing change from the usual- sugar with medicine!

Our group was REALLY stressed out. We all benefitted from taking the time to play together. It boosted out spirits and we gained a lot of valuable ideas on how to manage morale on a daily basis. We'll definitely have you back for another Fun Escape!

Shannon was awesome!!!! Just Humor Me created a custom training and team building program for our sales staff on how to use humor to attract and retain customers. We learned a great deal of fun ways to enhance our operations, deliver a better product, and have FUN along the way. The games and activities she created for us were so unique and the teams had a blast competing against each other in a non threatening, morale boosting way. Thank you, Shannon for reminding us to have fun with our work, we love what we do even more now.

Shannon Spring is THE GO TO EXPERT ON HUMOR. I hired her to train my staff on communication skills and using humor appropriately with staff and patients to boost morale and reduce stress. She is both a consummate professional and a SERIOUSLY FUNNY creative genius whose enthusiasm for facing challenges with a humorous perspective is positively contagious! Shannon is an essential part of any workplace wellness program.
