Salesman: Office Banter For Top Dogs
"Office Banter For Top Dogs" was created for salesmen and is a collection of humorous quips, put-downs and one-liners designed for one-upmanship. Sometimes subtle, sometimes sophisticated. The purpose is to provide smiles and chuckles punctuated by an occasional guffaw for both you, your fellow workers perhaps even people you've never met before and especially your sales manager.
“I’m not teaching people to be funny, I’m pointing out the comic ability and confidence they have within themselves”
–Mike Francis. Author.
Office and workplace quips, banter and even flirty chat-up lines by a professional stand-up comic. Get the ultimate weapon and get the very best out of your own 'workplace audience, be the alpha male PLUS, flirt shamelessly with the sexiest of co-workers and laugh them right into your bed!
Banter is the use of witty quips and remarks in a good-humoured teasing way. A banter expert just waits for an everyday situation to arise, and always seems to have the right funny quip for the right situation.
Banter appears sharp, witty and spontaneous but it isn’t, and here’s the inside secret direct from the horse’s mouth, a stand-up comedian, “Banter is simply a memorised list of lightning-fast quips for common situations”
and here’s the key.
You need to have a few "spontaneous" responses ready to go, and you need to let situations trigger your banter as they arise.
Yes, the key to being spontaneous is to plan!
All you need is a little ammo and you’ll find plenty in this pocket book. It’s not a joke book, it’s not a tool to make you the next Jimmy Carr, it’s a collection of around a hundred hand chosen quips that don’t need expert comic timing. Quick puns and comebacks that will make you the centre of attention.
Banter is the little devil on your shoulder that helps you cross the line from boring and polite to cheeky and charismatic. All you have to do is memorise one or two , weave them into your daily routine and unnerve the most confident man or woman in your workplace!
