Laugh & Learn


We all need to laugh. It's a healthy way to cope and thrive in our society. The way you present yourself every day either attracts or repels people. Being nice and being smart only gets you so far. Humor helps you heal, entertain, engage at a new level, grow trust quickly with your audience and if you're looking for real speaking engagements, humor is required. If you aren't leveraging humor in a powerful and effective way in how you express your key message, you're missing out. When you're laughing, you're learning.



Brian Trendler

Founder

Brian has spent his entire life being an observer of human behavior. Trust us, he’s totally not smart enough to pursue PHD’s or anything like that, but he realized at an early age - we’ll say 10 to be dramatic - that people react more positively to humor and situations that are labeled funny than the alternatives. This is especially applicable in personal situations such as with today's youth in our education system, building confidence as entrepreneurs, and business environments with poor work atmospheres and low retention. He tried just about every job position throughout his career(s): from fast food to technology, evening comedy to day-jobs, employee to boss, and realized at the end that he didn’t consider himself as “hire-able.” While he now does run a successful graphic design company in the local Bothell area, there came a calling to develop all he’s learned from watching people’s paralyzing fear over improving their personal or business communication skills while in front of 1 to many.

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. Brian is a primary facilitator and trainer 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.

WHAT WE DO: It’s a well-known fact that people buy from salespeople they like, socialize, remember and continue to interact with those that use humor and make them laugh. With so much negativity in the media and around us every day, we work hard to provide a fun, safe environment where anyone can learn how to skillfully use methods of humor to improve their personal lives and careers. Whether you’re a presenter, an entrepreneur, or just giving an event toast - say it with humor!

WHY WE DO IT. There are so many people out there that struggle to be heard, seen, and acknowledged. We’re all born the same; innocent, pure, happy and funny. At some point in our lives, whether by way of environment, societal pressure or the workplace, we lose ourselves. Our Workshops help anyone uncover and rediscover their own mix of humor. Laughter has so many hidden benefits such as confidence and pride as well; which quickly reveal themselves when students dedicate themselves to our curriculum. 

WHY YOU SHOULD DO IT. In just over 2 years, we’ve helped over 200 people learn all or portions of our Six Methods of Humor that we promote. 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, and 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.
