|9/1/2020||Harrisburg, PA||PAPPC Annual Conference with Joshua Lozoff|
"John Felts was asked perform in front of a room full of police officers, which is obviously a different crowd than he is used to entertaining. Not only did he knock it out of the park during the performance, two days after the event people are STILL laughing at his jokes and that is no small achievement! John was great from start to finish and spent the time leading up to his set visiting with the audience. He is a very personable, friendly and energetic comedian who we would love to invite back to other events!"
"Mike Goodwin is a fabulous presenter! He immediately connected with the audience and provided a session of meaningful dialogue and humor, just as we were hoping for and more! His stage presence is perfect and his comments relatable to our conference participants. Leadership and Laughter was very well received by our audience of over 700 participants!"
"We were honored to engage speaker Larry Weaver for our Second Annual Safety Symposium for the Greensboro District of the United States Postal Service. After researching speakers for our event, we were unanimously convinced that Larry Weaver was the right choice. We understood the gravity and importance of getting the right speaker, and the challenge of meeting the needs of our audience. Bottom line, Larry Weaver presented flawlessly, connecting all of us through his humor, personal stories, and day-to-day life applications ...Our event consisted of our Area Vice President, Area, Human Resources Manager, District Manager, Higher-Level local postal managers and postmasters, supervisors, city carriers, rural carriers, clerks, and custodians. Regardless of your rank in the organization, at the end of the day, we all can connect over humor about food, family, and frustrations. Humor is a universal antidote, breaking down barriers, and connecting us on a base level. Larry did not disappoint. I watched our District Manager from time to time, as the bar was high to make sure he was pleased. From a distance, it was obvious he was enjoying the presentation by the verbal and visual feedback he was giving. Later in speaking with him personally, he noted that Mr. Weaver was perfect for the event. Thank you Larry Weaver for being a part of our special event. It was the perfect puzzle piece to tie everything together that day for us."

We would absolutely recommend any and everyone to hire him, and would absolutely love to have him back!"
"We had Rik Roberts come in to present Game Winning Drive to our annual agency off site meeting. Rik really honed in on issues such as team work, unity, accountability, and owning your mistakes. He did it in a judgment-free way that gave us take-aways and connecting points we can take back to our home offices and apply. It was extremely well done, very professional and with plenty of laughs.

I highly recommend him if you have similar event where you need to tune up your leadership, accountability and communication skills."

I would highly recommend him for your next event. His ability to be versatile and provide what we were looking for was MAGIC!"

He had everyone laughing and participating during his show. David's material was fresh, on time, clean and enjoyed by all. We plan to have him back at a later date. Thanks again David."
"Paul Miller's presentation of a "Juggler's Mindset" was exceptional! We booked Paul for our inaugural IT Employee Day event and was an overwhelming success. Many employees shared that they thought this would be another mundane, "rah-rah", or "preachy" attempt by management to motivate the workforce, but were pleasantly surprised. They loved Paul's very engaging style and personality and the very interactive, and entertaining presentation. I would highly recommend Paul for professional or social events. Thank you for making our employee event a very memorable one!"
"The feedback that we received on Rik Roberts was overwhelmingly positive. Our large group appreciated his clean humor. When in Louisville it’s hard to compete with 4th Street Live entertainment.
