#3 David McCourt | Laughing all the way to the bank

Share Article

Ep 3

It’s episode three of The Humourology Podcast, so it’s time to break-in with a brilliant business bloke whose insights are worth billions.

David McCourt and Paul Boross on the Humourology Podcast

There’s no doubting that humour can change your business and your life. But, do the funniest people actually make the best leaders? In this week’s episode, I’m joined by revolutionary billionaire and communication business legend, David McCourt, as he spills the beans on how laughter can be lucrative.

He has been called “Che Guevara in a suit” and very few people have been as iconoclastic and innovative to solve problems with a sense of humour, like David has. As he reveals to us this week, a witty workforce is a more productive one, and it is a subtly strategic way to have a more successful business.

Of course, as David stresses, being good at barnstorming banter does take real brains. But, if you take the time to work on your sense of humour, your business will definitely boom – and your colleagues will thank you for it!

As the telecoms revolutionary says, you must “do what you love with people you love to “win the game of life”. All jokes aside, laughter is the best medicine and, if you want to take a leaf out of David’s book, it’s also the best way to get out of a tricky situation if you ever get stopped by police!
