June Cline is an inspirational humorist and President of her company, Open Heart Communications. Her philosophy of “Fun Works!” has been implemented in many major companies, such as Toyota, BellSouth, Siemens, and a slew of other names you’d recognize. All have benefited from her unique ability to teach them the difference between fun and frivolity. She teaches how to “Lead, Laugh, Or Get Out of The Way” by getting to the H.E.A.R.T. of the matter. And, how to raise productivity and profits by simply bringing more H.E.A.R.T. and humor to the workplace.
Over 500 Colleges and Associations and Corporations have had their funny bone tickled by June Cline, a former College Administrator. She often draws on her experiences in education, banking and career development to provide valuable insight into how to handle stress, learn to laugh at ourselves, and to find humor in everyday situations. In 2000, June earned the designation of Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), a prestigious certification awarded by the National Speakers Association. June also has a long history of service to both the National Speakers Association (NSA) and local Chapters. She is Past Chair of the Humor PEG (Professional Experts Group) for NSA, and former hostess for a monthly segment of their audio magazine Voices of Experience. As a Past President of NSA Georgia, June is credited with leading them to win the “Chapter of the Year” M.O.R.E. Award for 2001-2002. It is considered the Chapter with the most “best practices” out of all 38 Chapters.
June is often quoted and profiled by the media, who value her insight and ability to articulate why “Fun Works!” Recent features on June have appeared in publications as diverse as Selling Power, Harvard Management Communication Letter, Health Industry Executive, Competitive Edge, Redbook, First For Women, Growing Companies, and by Gannett News Service’s syndicated columnist Anita Bruzzese, to name a few.
She is most proud of her latest book, Humor Me, where 16 of the nation’s top humorists came together to tell everything they know about humor. Discover her creative writing skills in her book, The Other Side of the Jester, a powerful, poignant look at what happens when internal and external forces converge inside the heart. Or, just laugh with her as you flip through her Humor Sampler, a collection of some of life’s funny moments including her famous “student bloopers.”
June’s Alabama upbringing helps explain why she’s so “south in the mouth,” to the delight of her audiences. Her BS in Social Science from Westminister College in Salt Lake City Utah took 16 years to complete (wait’ll you hear that story!). Westminster College honored June with their 2001 Distinguished Alumni Award for “enlightening lives with humor and for the positive work she has done in Society.” In 2003, June moved from “Hotlanta” Georgia, to REALLLY hot…Phoenix, Arizona… the “valley of the sun.” In 115 degree heat, June is convinced she missed the valley and landed smack-dab on the face of the sun.
Life is June’s best source for her great humor and fun.
