Lynne Parker / Presenter
Welcome to my website. Most of you will know me as the founder and chief executive of Funny Women which I set up in 2002. Funny Women provides comedy expertise to help women to perform, write and do business with humour. I do a few other things as well so this is my personal space to tell you about this.
I write for a number of publications and websites from the Guardian to the Huffington Post, and I talk to businesses and organisations about my ‘accidental’ entrepreneurship; women, humour and power; workplace diversity and team building. I work with some leading companies and organisations delivering workshops, facilitating events, and offering one-to-one coaching for those looking to access their funny bones.
I am a radio regular contributing to BBC Radio Kent, BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 4’s flagship programme Moral Maze. I am also a presenter on the newly created Women’s Radio Station – you can download my programmes, Funny Women On Air, where I chat to some of the amazing funny women I meet through the world of comedy.
The ability to use humour is enormously powerful and makes you memorable, confident and impactful whether you are entertaining an audience or communicating in the workplace. I believe everybody has the ability to be funny, whether we realise this or not, and am constantly inspired by what I see on the live comedy circuit.
