I’m convinced that the name of the presentation is just branding. And that for my taste, making it at least a little vague and a little fun makes the audience curious.

Thanksgiving is coming up and perhaps this gesture just seems like a required bit of business. But I mean it. Thanks to you I’m able to spread my message.

I have always loved magic. In fact, my first ever paying gig was as a 15-year old magician. As a motivational speaker, I often (though not always) work a bit of magic into my performances every so often. And if I am really lucky, a client will hire me specifically to do a magic routine.

Here’s why a flash mob is different: there’s not just one person or group participating, the ENTIRE ROOM is involved. People are doing something fun and surprising; the music is blaring and the camaraderie is instant. A feeling is created.

But don’t just take MY word for it—know that science also tells us that investing in others is really an investment in ourselves.

My goal is always to create an experience that is meaningful for all. It’s not all content. If audiences are looking at their phones, not listening, and having a hard time focusing, it’s a wasted opportunity for all. But it’s also not all entertainment. They want to be engaged…but they don’t need a comedian.
