Communications & Special Events Manager, Company Holiday Party in Chapel Hill, NC review of Paul Miller

"Entertaining and professional on-stage and a joy to work with backstage. Joshua Lozoff's performance was SOLD OUT here at the Renaissance Centre and the crowd loved the show. Want to get that "younger audience" that everyone is seeking? Book Joshua Lozoff. The house was filled with children, their parents and a few grandparents."

Training Manager, Partnership Conference in Greensboro, NC review of Mike Goodwin
 Speakers and Entertainers in Greensboro, NC

"We were honored to engage speaker Larry Weaver for our Second Annual Safety Symposium for the Greensboro District of the United States Postal Service. 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. 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. 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."
