We hired Joshua to perform at our annual holiday luncheon. When I mentioned to my co-workers that I had booked a Mentalist/Magician for the event, several of them were skeptical. I think a lot of people expected a "typical" magic show, but that was far from what we got. You could see the amazement on everyone's faces, and not one person was not left in awe by Joshua's performance. He is truly a talented entertainer, and we would recommend him to anyone that wants to be intrigued, amazed, learn about the history of magic and laugh a lot, all at the same time. This was a class act.
* Three Core Skills for Effective Communication
Great communication requires a connection. Connections result in more effective interactions. We have the power to truly connect with everyone we interact with. Joshua reveals the three skills that allow him to immediately connect with his audience both individually and as a group.
* The Power of Perception
Research shows that 85% of communication is non-verbal. We already know how to interpret body language and other non-verbal communication. In fact, we send and receive signals constantly – whether we know it or not. Harness skills you already have to master communication in both your professional and personal life.
Joshua illustrates his ideas with amazing illusions you'll swear are real magic… and maybe they are! True magic happens when we take the time to genuinely connect with others.
A keynote presentation needs to keep attendees engaged while offering useful content. A professional entertainer like Joshua knows that to inform, it helps to entertain! A recent client wrote, “no speaker wants the after-lunch slot, but you nailed it. Your presentation got everyone energized and ready for the afternoon. My team learned a lot about communication, but just as importantly, they had fun. I think the group felt like they were getting a show instead of a lecture.”
Great for leadership training, team building, or a break from the norm at your next conference, The Magic of Communication is part keynote speech and part magic show. Your attendees will leave Joshua's presentation entertained, energized, and aware of their own magical powers of communication.
