message' act to your stand-up comedy routine,
you have really taken the Twin Cities credit industry

year. The room was filled with our major customers,
so it was important to us that they be properly
entertained. You really topped off the day!"

"Barry and Tyler, Marni hit the mark with our group on several points! It’s amazing how well she can discuss serious topics like the research study information, and mix in many funny stories to emphasize the impact! After her presentation I had many people tell me how much they enjoyed hearing her speak and how they haven’t laughed so much in months!! She was outstanding!! I would recommend her to any group that is looking to energize their audience with solid messages (around sound business, doing what is right) in a fun and entertaining manner! Marni’s the best!!"

May 16, 2013, T. Marni Vos addressed our department
at ConAgra Foods. In a nutshell, her presentation
was GREAT! The audience loved her and very much
enjoyed her perspectives and her humor. She was
very flexible and open to working the room, as
well as relating to those employees who could
not attend in-person and participated by WebEx.
I would most certainly recommend T. Marni Vos
to other corporations and organizations!" ~ Lori
Senior Director of Finance, ConAgra Foods
wonderfully humorous presentation delighted our
audience, in fact, I saw many of them wiping tears
from their eyes, and we have had comments from
many that this was the best program we have ever
had. We feel the positive approach of humor as
you so aptly illustrated could only enhance the
support and commitment of those attending to the
mission of Futures Unlimited, Inc." ~ Futures

Converence last year when you spoke to us. I have
been holding on to your card and am finally getting

and I wish that everyone at our location had the
opportunity to hear you. I often think of the
truths that you spoke that day. Thank you for
your observations. Keep opening eyes!" ~ Eaton
you! You made me a hero by booking T. Marni Vos
for our convention. Our group of insurance agents
felt that they had shared a moment of laughter
and sincerity with a very special person in Marni.
is a gem in the world of keynote speakers. Her
style is warm and witty, yet entirely professional.
As a conference planner, I appreciated her communication,
her cost-consciousness and her promptness. She
researched the group and offered pertinent, insightful
information to an industry that has had its share
of serious events this year. As a humorist, she
is beyond comparison. We research hundreds of
speakers each year to be keynotes at our conferences.
Her comedic style on a stage, translates into
hilarity on a corporate level. To receive a standing
ovation from 600 insurance agents says it all." ~ DUAGI

Healing and Humor - There are four attributes
to our health: the physical, the mental, the emotional
and the spiritual. Both the patient and the healer know
that stress is the number one medical bill in this country.
Stress is not an event, it is how we choose to perceive
an event. Perceiving the world around us with humor,
hope, joy, and faith, not only assist the health care
provider, but also the patient. Humor lifts us in our
healing and helps us to maintain our well-being as we
help others in their healing process.
for a Fuller Life - Your job, regardless of what
it is, does not define you
You bring the definition of who you are to your job...and
to your family, your friends, and your community. Your
job is just one of the places you go, in the course
of a week, while you are working on something that is
much, much, more important, and that is your becoming.
If you are working on becoming a grand kind of individual,
well then, your work environment will benefit, but so
will your family, friends, strangers, and of course,
on Humor - People buy the quality of the individual
as well as the product. If there are people whose products
have equal qualifications, we will go with the individual
who brings pleasure to the process. Laughter, a sense
of lightness, and an authentic friendship, brings that
pleasure to the process. Humor and the heart of enjoyment
brings a product, a service, a proposal, or an idea,
to Life, and then...to Sold.
& Learning - As a former high school teacher,
I watch most “survival reality shows” and say, “That’s
nothing, I taught teenagers!” Regardless of what grade
level you teach, K thru college, humor is not a choice.
It is one of our greatest communication tools. In a
recent study, 284 teachers were evaluated. Those that
ranked at the top in teaching ability averaged 3.95
on the humor scale. The poorest teachers ranked 2.36.
Through incorporating more humor into the classroom,
both teacher and student will benefit. It is not just
about a subject. It’s about relationships.
'bout Just a Good Time- Laughter can kick off
a conference like nothing else! It truly is the shortest
distance between two people. Aren’t conferences designed,
in large, to bring people together to share information?
Why not shorten that distance with the common bond of
laughter? To walk out of your event with grins and laughter,
can send attendees off on their long drives or airline
flights, with a bit of inspiration and a bounce in their
