Welcome to my website.  Most of you will know me as the founder and chief executive of Funny Women which I set up in 2002.  Funny Women provides comedy expertise to help women to perform, write and do business with humour.  I do a few other things as well so this is my personal space to tell you about this.

I write for a number of publications and websites from The Guardian to HuffPost, and I talk to businesses and organisations about women, humour and power, workplace diversity, team building and how we can all find ways to ‘Stand Up to Stand Out’. I work with some leading companies and organisations delivering workshops, facilitating events, and offer one-to-one coaching for those looking to build their confidence and access their funny bones.

I am a radio regular contributing to BBC Radio Kent, BBC Radio Scotland and even pushed my own limits by taking part on the BBC Radio 4’s flagship programme Moral Maze.  I am always happy to comment particularly in support of the hundreds of women who enter the Funny Women Awards each year.

The ability to use humour is enormously powerful and makes you memorable, confident and impactful whether you are entertaining an audience or communicating in the workplace.  I believe everybody has the ability to be funny, whether we realise this or not, and am constantly inspired by what I see on the live comedy circuit.

If you can’t find out what you want to know about me on this site, please call 020 8948 4444 or email lynne@funnywomen.com and we can arrange to have a chat over Skype or meet for a coffee.
