Make Boring Disappear Today

what i’ve heard from clients:

“Please don’t be boring.”

“I need a keynote speaker who is BOTH entertaining AND informative for my company meeting.”

“Please don’t be boring.”

“Looking for a different, interactive speaker who understands our business’ culture.”

“Please don’t be boring.”

“We want to guarantee our employees/clients learn AND have a great time.”

“Please don’t be boring.”

I’ve got you covered.

behind every magic trick is the science of human connection

Magicians have a very unique profession. Their skill-set is enshrouded in mystery and secrecy… that is part of the allure in “trying to figure out how it works.”

Master Magician and Keynote Speaker Joseph Tran will lift the veil covering the smoke and mirrors, give you insight on how magicians think, and show you how to apply it to your own life and way of thinking.

And he will do it in a way that is both informative and entertaining, eliminating the worry of keeping your audience engaged, and make your event a grand slam!
