A Sense of Humor is Much More Than a Laughing Matter


“A sense of humor is much more than a laughing matter, in fact, it is the strategy for success,” says Jeanne Robertson, the Keynote Speaker for the upcoming Power of the Pur$e luncheon. The third annual luncheon is set for April 28, 2015 where all proceeds benefit Brazosport Regional Health System.

With her down-home Southern drawl, Jeanne Robertson illustrates to her audience how a sense of humor is an attitude, an approach toward working with people. Her goal is to inform, encourage and impart wisdom from her own experiences so others can thrive and succeed.

She has been captivating audiences with her funny, reality-based stories for over 30 years. Using original hilarious stories from her everyday life, Jeanne illustrates how to laugh at ourselves and accept the things that cannot be changed about us and the people around us.

For several years, the Power of the Pur$e fundraiser has been a luncheon focused on empowering local women to take charge of their health. Giving your body a boost with laughter is the best medicine to help you feel better and putting the spring back in your step. Take time this Spring and join other local women as they network, shop for purses, and laugh until their faces hurt.
