Humor With a Message

I think people learn best in an atmosphere of fun, says Greg Risberg, so my goal is to be 'hilariously informative.' Greg is a warm, funny motivational speaker who has addressed over 500,000 people in 48 states, as well as Canada, Great Britain and Australia with his humor with a message programs. He helps people learn useful ideas for handling stress better, communicating better, and finding more balance in their lives. He does this with wit and humor that leave meeting planners saying your unique blend of humor, inspiration and message was perfect!

Greg involves his audiences with funny and poignant stories that touch hearts as well as minds. He tries to renew hope in people, remind them of their own intrinsic value, and help them to think about what is most important in their lives. His own philosophy of life can be seen in this quote from Leo Rosten:

I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be "happy." I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all, to matter to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.

Greg is an active member of the National Speakers Association, a group that awarded him their highest earned designation of Certified Speaking Professional. He is one of only 500 people in the entire country to earn this certification. Greg has also received the Wordsmith award for speaking excellence from the Illinois chapter of NSA. He has a B. A. degree in psychology from Roosevelt University and a Master's Degree in Social Work (M.S.W.) from the Jane Addams School of Social Work in Chicago, IL. Greg is the author of two books, Touch: A Personal Workbook and the soon to be published 52 Ways To Fill your Life with Humor, Happiness and Hope.

 

Client Comments:

Greg Risberg was ideal.  He really set our convention on the right track.  His comments were funny, yet applicable to many of our situations.  It was a perfect match.  The students loved him.  They repeated several of his sayings throughout the convention.  The convention was a great success.
