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!

We really enjoyed Larry Weaver’s presentation at our all employee meeting. The jokes were a hit and, being from the south ourselves, were spot on! The motivational tips he threw in were just what we were looking for. I appreciate his promptness, professionalism, ease to work with and creativity. Larry’s ability to tie in bits from our other training earlier in the day made it that much funnier! It was just what we needed after a long day of training!

Riley County Clerk's Office

Rik Roberts presented to our group the "Mayberry Method". He was very well received by all level of employees. Not one person, in the audience of 190, lost interest during the 90 minutes he "entertained" and educated our group. We even had an added bonus of unexpected interaction of an official Kansas Highway Patrol Officer that assisted in his great message of how to react/respond when in an unusual or difficult situation. Many employees have requested to have him back again!

VP Training Coordinator, All Hands Meeting (South Hill, VA) 10/9/2017 review of Joshua Lozoff


Rik Roberts (aka Barney Fife) spoke for CML USA, Inc. at our International Sales Meeting. We had representatives from Italy, Canada, Portugal and the U.S. After a full day of being served very technical information, our representatives enjoyed being able to relax and enjoy his performance. Rik's business message was clear and on point, and his very entertaining comedy routine had everyone in stitches from beginning to end. We wanted something light and entertaining yet informative for our sales professionals. From fun "citations" a the beginning to allowing photos to be taken with Barney, Rik Roberts provided exactly what we were looking for!

Red Lick ISD is a small east Texas school; however, the staff is a quality staff. I wanted to do something special for them.

There was humor which resulted in tremendous laughter. There was entertainment in the form of magic and participatory activities. And, there was truly a serious message delivered concerning "stress" and the release of stress. It was just great! The staff is still talking about the presentation a day later.
