Humor researcher, laughter Yoga Teacher, Lecturer
My name is Debbie Iancu-Haddad, I'm a mother of two darling children, a lecturer on humor and a laughter yoga teacher.
In the past ten years I've given over 1000 lectures and laugh sessions to a wide variety of clients – I've worked with hospitals, high-tech companies, government agencies and private groups. I also volunteer workshops with senior citizens, special interest groups and kids. You are never too old, too young or too busy to laugh.
It's never too late to get your humor going. So start today.
My goal is to spread humor in the world. I love working with teachers and helping others get more humor and laughter into their life.
