Welcome to the Telephone Laughter Club where we laugh Monday to Friday at 7:00am-7:10am UK time!
There are parts of the UK and beyond where the Laughter Clubs are not available and this is a great way of hitting it off with some chuckles and get the benefits laughter produces.

Stress, obesity, competition, low self-esteem, lack of motivation etc. are all factors in the work environment which are causing a very high level of loss of productivity and - revenue.
With a workshop designed with the particular team of people in mind, a change in attitude can quickly turn around performance from average to excellent and committed.
