Electric Cooperatives of Mississippi

Larry Weaver served as our luncheon speaker for our statewide annual meeting attended by 375 people. The audience is very diversified by age and a ratio of 65-35, male-to-female. Larry understood his audience and developed a program that was very entertaining and brought laughter throughout our group. His delivery style and stories related very well with our group and I received a lot of positive feedback specifically about his performance. He was fantastic, hilarious and very professional. He was easy to work with and customized his presentation from information we provided in our meeting profile. He did a great job of including a timely and special motivational message along with outstanding comedy/humor. A well-balanced program that had our group leaving with a smile on their face! As the meeting planner, it was a very good decision.

Comporium, Inc.

Paul and Dawn were lovely and did an amazing job at our Annual Meeting. They were prompt, professional, delivered an educational and fun presentation, and were well received by our audience. Paul and Dawn were able to personalize their FLOP Ball presentation to the specific themes we wanted to introduce our group to and the FLOP balls themselves were a fun and versatile “prop” to drive the presentation home. Our group really loved having the balls to take home and play with!

Joshua Lozoff's presentation, The Magic of Communication, was one of the absolute best presentations we've ever had at the agency. The way he seamlessly blended his incredible magic skills with his message of how to better communicate and engage in your everyday life was nothing short of magical (pun intended). He connected quite wonderfully with our staff, and 90% of the staff rated him at 4 stars or better. We would absolutely recommend any and everyone to hire him, and would absolutely love to have him back!

Collierville Chamber of Commerce

Rik Roberts offers the perfect combination of education and entertainment. As the keynote speaker for our Chamber's general membership luncheon, Rik began by engaged the audience with his dead-on imperination of Deputy Barney Fife. After some interactive fun with a few key business and community leaders in the room, he segwayed into a fantastic presentation about eliminating distractions in the workplace through the "Mayberry Method". The audience loved him, and everyone left with takeaways that can be easily implemented to increase productivity in any organization. Rik was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend him!

U.S. Food and Drug Administration

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. Rik hit the nail on the head, and managed to not ruffle any feathers. He is an expert at people and it shows. I highly recommend him if you have similar event where you need to tune up your leadership, accountability and communication skills.

He even adjusted his act to include an idea we came up with. He was very personable and comfortable to be around. He didn’t just do his presentation and leave, he stayed and enjoyed the day with us. I would highly recommend him for your next event. His ability to be versatile and provide what we were looking for was MAGIC!

Federal Aviation Administration

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!
