Laughology’s team is made up of experts with backgrounds in business and performance. For both of these you need resilience.
As a former stand-up comedian, Stephanie Davies, Laughology’s CEO and Head of Happiness, sometimes encountered drunk crowds who slow-clapped her off stage. This was perfect for resilience-building and proved valuable experience for facing various challenges in the business world (where thankfully she's usually clapped onto the stage). A few cutting reviews of her work on the largest comedy website in the UK also helped her cope with direct feedback.
