“With the economy in the toilet, and my life as an educator-humorist taking off, it’s the perfect time to offer a no-risk proposition to college leaders,” says Leah Wescott. “Wescott” is the pen name of the editor-in-chief of the satirical higher education blog the Cronk of Higher Education. “I need exposure and schools need a trainer who can keep them engaged without breaking the budget.”
Wescott says she will waive her speaking fee for the first three colleges to take her up on her offer. “Since I’ve been operating as a fictional persona, I need schools to trust that I can deliver solid educational programs for students and professional staff. If they’ll pay for my travel, I’ll bring my best programs and a spirit of enjoyable productivity.”
How can a humorist be taken seriously as an educator?
“The programs highlighted as my ‘Signature Sessions’ tend to focus on using differences as a catalyst for creativity, high performance and morale,” says Wescott. “I love positive conflict – in both business and in my favority comedy. Humor can help people laugh at themselves, bond, and solve complicated problems. But don’t trust me. Ask my references – or become a test audience yourself!”
