Event Details

Submitted by the Event Organizer

Entertainer and best selling author, David Nihill shares the principles, techniques and tools of the world’s best TED speakers in a humorous talk based on his bestselling book Do You Talk Funny?

Tickets include wine, beer and soft drinks and for the first 50 people to buy tickets, a signed copy of David’s bestselling book Do You Talk Funny.

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, David is the author of the best-selling book Do You Talk Funny? and the Founder of FunnyBizz Conference. His work has been featured in Inc., Lifehacker, The Huffington Post, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, The Irish Times, and Forbes.

His program with over 23,000 students has been featured by Prezi as one of the best training courses for presenters, and his book remains one of the highest rated in the world on the (usually not so wildly exciting) topic of public speaking.

A sought after international business speaker, David has also performed standup comedy at leading clubs including Cobbs, the Comedy Store, the Improv, the Punchline and the Upright Citizens Brigade, even though he strongly denies being a comedian and is well aware most people don’t understand his accent. As a storyteller he finished runner up in NPR’s the Moth’s largest US story telling competition and has won multiple Moth Storyslam competitions.

A graduate of the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School he calls San Francisco home when immigration officials permit, and was named on the 2017 Irish America 100 List, which recognizes the accomplishments of the best and the brightest Irish-American and Irish-born leaders.

A big fan of travel and languages David has lived and worked in 12 countries and visited 66 and counting.
