Q: Who Have You Worked With?
A: The United State military (Army & Air Force) stationed overseas, Disney, Universal Studios, State Farm, WeWork, General Assembly, and more.
Q: Who Is My Ideal Client?
A: My usual clients are the VP of Sales, the HR Director, or CEO who has several events over the year. The people who fit best understand the value of connecting an audience with their company in a positive way. Any time people gather together, it’s a phenomenal opportunity to engage them in a fun, memorable, & meaningful way.
There’s a detail I’m really proud of: 80% of my work is repeat business! Once my clients see what I do, they immediately understand how I can help at multiple events over the course of the year. That’s how I wind up working 5-6x with the same client in the same calendar year. I’m more than an entertainer or a speaker: I’m a business consultant helping your company engage their people.
As Forbes.com reports; fewer than 25% of employees are considered to be highly engaged, and only 39% are moderately engaged.
It’s my personal mission to improve that number at your company.
Q: What Do You Do?
A: In short, I engage your audience. The longer version is I combine my background as a world-traveling entertainer with my experience in motivational psychology to engage people on a fundamental level that leaves them with positive associations about your company that they literally can’t forget.
This usually works out to be one of several options: me working as an entertainer, a speaker, or an MC. Also, companies will bring me in to help sharpen their soft skills as a trainer in negotiation, influence, communication, or sales.
Q: Where Do You Do It?
A: At all manner of events. Companies bring me in for their holiday parties, conferences, trade shows, annual awards banquets, sales retreats, and customer appreciation events.
Essentially, I function as an insurance policy: the impact your events have on your people is too valuable to leave up to chance.
Sure, you could go the budget route, but the money you save in the short term will cost you in the long term when the “bargain” entertainer makes political jokes, or insults the CEO, or makes you look awful with any other of the million things I’ve seen happen in my years of being in the live experience business.
Q: Speaking of Price, What’s Yours?
A: Here’s how pricing works. We start a conversation about your event, and I find out as much as I can about what you’re looking for. Once I have an understanding of the scope of the project, I build a custom-designed solution that fits your exact situation. My basic rule is: “Never be cheaper than dinner.” The chocolate cake lasts 3 minutes; I’ve had people come up to me saying how much fun they had at one of my presentations 5 years later.
Which is worth paying for? The cake, or the positive association with your company that your guests remember for years?
That’s why I have to work with you to understand your goals. If I did it any other way it would be like a doctor prescribing medicine before knowing anything about the patient: it would end in disaster!
I put a proposal together that outlines our agreement, and all the details that pertain to our event. Once that’s signed, and the retainer submitted, your date is locked in my calendar.
Q: Do You Have A Guarantee?
A: Sure do! I have a 100% money back guarantee for if I do/say anything inappropriate on/off-stage. My goal is to offer squeaky clean engagement that makes you look like a star. You should never have to worry about political humor, adult language, or suggestive material. I’m willing to put my check on the line because I know I’m the safe bet.
Speaking of safe; I also have performer’s insurance, so if something goes wrong you’re not on the hook for it! Now, that’s a safe bet!
Q: How Far Out Do You Book?
A: Bookings usually start at a year out, but most are for 9 months out. Occasionally the stars align and I’ll have a last minute date available, but it will require a rush-order premium as it takes phenomenal effort to design custom-made last minute presentations for your event.
Q: You’re An Author, Too?
A: I am. As it turns out, the psychology I use on stage to make it look like I can read minds also applies to many different areas including time management, confidence, skills development, memory improvement, among many others. I put all the secrets I’ve discovered over the past 15 years into a 260 page book titled “[Think] Like A Mind Reader” that currently has multiple 5 star reviews on Amazon.com; including one by New York Times best seller Dorie Clark.
Q: Can I See You In Action?
Let me know what kind of event you’re planning, and I’d love to work with you to make it a smash hit. You can call me directly, or you can use my event form to share the details I need to build the best experience possible.
