Biography

A former stand-up comedian and contributing writer for the original Saturday Night Live Show, Jim Pelley has left them laughing for more than 18 years at over 1,600 top organizations in the United States and abroad, including Disney, Intel, Southwest Airlines, Mattel, and AT&T. Jim Pelley has brought his message of "How to Smarten Up by Lightening Up" to hundreds of thousands of people who are high-tech, low-tech, and no-tech-at-all. With his hilarious way of poking fun at the frustrations of everyday life, Jim demonstrates uproariously how to use humor to become more creative, more productive, and less stressed.

Jim Pelley is dedicated to providing the highest quality, most humorous presentations humanly possible. His educational, entertaining keynote programs combine humor with the latest communication theory and physiological research. Not content to serve as mere entertainment, Jim Pelley packs his talks with skills and tools for a more productive workplace. Proper mirth management, he proposes, can boost morale, increase team spirit and stimulate motivation. Jim delivers this message and much more with such wittiness and intelligence that audience members leave his programs informed while laughing in the aisles.

Jim Pelley resonates with people as the class clown, the favorite brother-in-law, and the helpful consultant all rolled in one. He says the things most people are thinking but would not dare verbalize. Jim speaks of universally recognizable situations and truths, and customizes his presentation to each group or industry so he can "talk the talk." This relaxes the mental barrier people usually put up to deflect new ideas, and as a result, even the most resistant give in once Jim builds up momentum. Jim Pelley integrates private life and public life, and then ties his observations back to the bigger picture of leadership, group dynamics and workplace politics.

Through his humor, Jim Pelley gives participants permission to stop and reflect on how they are living now, and presents possibilities for living differently in the future. He helps them believe that they are up to the task by breaking through the commonality of the mundane, giving them coping tools as well as relational tools to help them respond appropriately to the challenges they are facing.

Jim Pelley leaves people with the belief that things can be better. That conflicts can be resolved. That the things that cannot be resolved do not always have to be. And that whatever is left is do-able, if people just lighten up their expectations. Jim brings a unique perspective to the table and yet maintains a presence, a sense of confidence and integrity. In a nutshell, Jim Pelley takes humor seriously, and helps others do the same.
