Marty Wilson used to be a Pharmacist… but he hated it. Then he became an Award Winning Advertising Copywriter… but he hated that too. Then he worked for seven years as a full time Stand Up Comic on the UK circuit – handling hecklers at the time Australia lost the Ashes and the Rugby World Cup, And now he is a bestselling author, a successful speaker, but more importantly for us today he does what he calls “Be More Funnier Mentoring” where he takes people’s meat and potatoes presentations and does a bit of a Jamie Oliver on them, spicing them up, adding some herbs, and making their speeches, pitches or sales presentations come to life.
