When you see a firefly, what do you think? Vandad Pourbahrami talks about how all you need is a little light to explore a new path. Vandad followed the firefly 3 times and those 'weird' decisions complimented his analytical side and led to a more unique and fun life. These 3 fireflies led him to work as a Humor Consultant today, a job that most people do not believe exists. Listen to learn from Vandad's experiences and expand the lights in your life as well. This talk was filmed and edited by TVM, Student Television at McGill.

Vandad Pourbahrami is a humo(u)r consultant and trainer, training people and organizations how to use humo(u)r to be more effective. Vandad helps people use humo(u)r strategically to spark creativity, improve organizational culture and enjoy their work more. Vandad and his team have worked with over 300 organizations around the world, like the UN, Accenture and his best friend (he thanks you for the break!). Vandad graduated from McGill University and the London School of Economics & Political Science, and also has many years of experience in the Management Consulting and Improv Comedy space. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
