Laughter Yoga for the Corporate World

  • This highly interactive program has been very successful in lifting the energy in the room in corporate environments with participants becoming highly engaged and feeling for themselves how their mood can change within minutes with this effective practice. This program has received raving reviews from leaders from organizations such as Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), the City of Brampton, ISOL India, Concordia University and the University of Windsor.

    This can also be presented as a high-energy laughter yoga session (10-25 minutes) to warm up your conference attendees (in person or virtual) and raise their energy, so they feel great and connected as you dive further into your conference programming. This is also a unique offering that can be offered right after lunch when a release of endorphins and “happy” hormones like dopamine and serotonin may be required to ease and center the audience back into your conference programming.

Men’s Health

  • After his successful TED talk, Ven’s received numerous requests from both men and women to share further on his personal journey triumphing over shame and guilt and is now shining light on one of society’s last taboos.

    Ven continues to share something few men will ever admit out loud, much less announce to the world. Bringing insight to what is out of sight. To address a hidden truth that 9 out of 10 men won’t admit. Because they’re ashamed. He’s here to talk about the rise and fall of erectile dysfunction. No pun intended.

    Since getting help, which took nearly two years of various treatments including a major surgery and 10 months of therapy, Ven has learned that one in four men UNDER the age of forty deal with erectile dysfunction. And despite all the Viagra commercials on TV, men do not talk about it.

    His compelling story, which is full of humor and many obvious double entendres, has been warmly received and resulted in a lot of positive feedback. And every week, Ven keeps receiving messages from men and women globally who also dare to share their own personal experiences with this important topic. Men’s health affects us all. And Ven is grateful that he gets to keep sharing this message in person with corporate audiences, university students, and online through video interviews, podcasts and news outlets.

We had our 6th Annual Ascend Fall Conference this past October where Ven was the Master of Ceremony. Ven opened the evening with the very original Ascend Talk ”Shift Happens”.

His personal anecdotes put the audience at ease and the room was full of laughter within seconds! Ven was very smooth in transitioning from speaker to speaker, and his ability to take moments from the evening and bring them to life with a relevant story really made the event! Ven was a delight to work with – professional, funny and very flexible with some of the last minute changes we had. It was an absolute pleasure working with Ven, and I hope he will join us again in the future!
