Vice President, Meeting in Minneapolis, MN 1/18/2019 review of David Ferrell

"Joshua is a great speaker. His message and entertainment covered multiple generations and included great skills to use at work and home. Our electrical contracting group loved the message and entertainment both, they wished more of their family members would have attended. Due to weather issues, Joshua had to land 2 hours away from our conference and shuttle in. He was in constant contact with us the whole time so there were no surprises. Very professional."

We hosted Joshua as a keynote speaker for a finance conference, and everyone appreciated the way he was able to combine the awe of magic with an inspiring and genuine look into the communication and interaction we all encounter in our daily lives. Joshua captured our audience immediately during his performance, and it was truly amazing to see his love of magic unfold. An amazing performance - our membership is still wondering how these mysterious feats were done. It has to be Magic. Thanks, Joshua."
