Managing Partner for Strategy Rik Moore joins Reset, The Podcast, hosted by Suki Thompson, as originally featured in Advertising Week.
Having a creative outlet is important, and Rik initially found his performing comedy. However, soon he found himself without enough hours in the day, holding down a full-time job in both comedy and media, and as a result, he was working 300+ hours a month and was missing out socially with friends and family. As a result, he had to scale back and did so by merging his two passions together.
Rik identified the similarities and the benefits of bringing his comedy experience into the workplace and talks about how comedy can support confidence, public speaking, meeting preparation, brainstorming and how training in comedy can help you conduct a room in a way that puts everyone at ease. There are so many benefits, and it highlights the importance and value of making time and embracing our need for a creative outlet and its impact on our performance.
