About us

Let's Laugh is a social enterprise dedicated to providing effective health and wellbeing programs to organisations that care about the health and well-being of their staff, clients, students and community members.

All our programs are fully interactive and based on what we call our 5 C's of collaboration: Creating and Celebrating Connection through Creative Conversations.  

About our Chief Happiness Officer Bron Roberts:

In 2002, after 13 years as the primary and full time carer for her mother who lived with depression and dementia, Bron knew she had to help other carers avoid the fatigue and burnout issues that had plagued her carers journey.  It was only when she bagan sharing the concepts that got her through that she realised that her carers journey actually started decades earlier.  In 1976, while working as an administrator in a high-care rehabilitation setting, Bron's ability to inspire, motivate and bring an inner sense of joy to anxious clients caught the attention of  'the powers that be', and she was trained to run the new and somewhat controversial at the time meditation and mindfulness (or as it was called at the time, a conscious awareness) program.  Anything but quiet, her version of the program included a connection and compassion through laughter.  Some clients even began calling her their accidental joy coach.   

Usually not one to leap onto new ideas when they first arrive, Bron surprised everyone who knew her when she trained as one of Australia's first Laughter Yoga Teacher Trainers (in 2002), promptly started what has become one of the world's longest running community laughter clubs, and began sharing the program with organisations around the country.  Her laughter based programs became so popular that she went from being able to count the number of times she'd been on a plane on one hand to gold status flyer and international traveller in under 12 months.  In 2006 she was awarded one of the first International Laughter Yoga Global Laughter Yoga Ambassadorships for her dedication to the laughter cause.  Wanting to expand her understanding of the use of laughter and humour she then trained as a certified laughter Boss having completed the Humour Foundation training of the same name, and in 2014 she received an honoury Masters in Laughter Yoga Wellbeing.

Wanting to support her innate knowledge with a solid academic underpinning Bron got things completely out of order by completing a 3-year post-graduate diploma in humour as a therapeutic and business wellbeing modality through the University of Oregon (USA) and the Association for Applied and Therpautic Humor (AATH.org) in 2014.  A qualification that saw her become Australia's only Certified Humour Professional, and then enrolling in Bachelors of Psychological Science as a mature age student in 2015 (yes, undergrad after post grad, thank you recognition of prior learning and experience!)  Following a graduation where she was celebrated as the oldest graduate in her co-hort, she promptly enrolled in Dr. Sarah McKay's Brain (neuro-science) Coaching  Bootcamp, headed to Bhutan to study Gross National Happiness, completed the Science of Happiness and Positive Psychology courses through the Greater Good Science Centre at the University of California, Berkeley, completed the Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga teachers training program and updated her meditation and mindfulness training qualifications. 

In her spare time (yes, she actually has some) she's the mother of 2 wonderfully successful adult daughters, a reluctant cyclist (being married to an avid one), dedicated to keeping up to date with the latest research relevant to her work, an avid voluneer (did we mention Let's Laugh is a social enterprise?), a communication and public speaking teacher and mentor, a Toastmasters champion speaker, a passionate traveller, and has also been a supporting facilitator for a number of wellbeing studies, a contributing author to several wellbeing publications and the Laughter expert of choice for a number of media outlets.
