Wayne Turmel

I’m originally from the small town of Mission, British Columbia, Canada. I now live and work in Lisle, Illinois near Chicago.My past is what the police refer to as “checkered”.


For nearly 20 years I was a stand-up comedian touring throughout North America, headlining clubs and concerts across the US and Canada. I appeared on “Evening at the Improv”, opened for bands such as Chicago and Hall and Oates, and worked nearly any place with four  brick walls and a microphone.


In 1996 I ran away from the circus to begin a second career in the training and development field. Over time I became well known for helping develop management and communication skills in people around the world. My podcast. “The Cranky Middle Manager Show” had thousands of subscribers around the world and was recognized as one of the top HR blogs in the world.


In 2008 we started, a company dedicated to teaching the skills to present, sell, train and lead people and teams using tools like WebEx, Lync and more. Check us out at the site.  I’m also a proud co-founder of the Remote Leadership Institute.


I live with my wife, The Duchess, my daughter, Her Serene Highness, and Byron, the world’s crankiest cockatiel.
