“I live in a world of storytellers. I get to see on a weekly basis some of the best storytellers in the country practicing their craft. What I love about Harris III is that he doesn’t just tell you a great story. He actually is able to pull you inside of the story and heal your wounded sense of wonder in ways you never imagined.”

— CARLOS WHITTAKER —

“I am such a big fan of Harris III. In my 20+ years with DreamWorks Animation, the stories that lasted weren’t just about box office – they resonated on a personal level. Harris understands this intuitively. Not only is he a talented illusionist, Harris knows the power of Story to grab the heart. I always clear my calendar when Harris is in town, because I know I will come away changed for the better.”

Stories are universal.

Here are some places where Harris has captivated audiences
through stories and magical live experiences.

TOP 10 REASONS

TO WORK WITH HARRIS

1 • UNFORGETTABLE

Maya Angelou once said, “People will forget what they heard you say, and they will forget what they see you do, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” Harris approaches every single event with this idea in mind. Audiences will forget what speakers say, and they forget what they watched happen in the room, but if you can make them feel something, what was seen and heard will be unforgettable. Harris has a unique ability to resonate and help audiences feel things that many people say they haven’t felt in years. Let Harris help you make your event truly unforgettable.

2 • TRANSCENDENT

There’s something about experiencing the magic that Harris brings to every event that is transcendent and difficult to put into words. It’s part of what sets him apart and makes his presentations so special. Let him help you reawaken child-like wonder, and leave you in awe of the world around you and the role you play in it.

3 • CUSTOM-CRAFTED

Every audience is different. Every organization is different. Why should every presentation be the same? Harris custom tailors his work for every event, every audience and each venue. The difference is tangible.

4 • EASY TO WORK WITH

Unlike many other presenters with a background in the entertainment industry, Harris is showing up to your event to serve you, not to be served by you. No outrageous requests. No green M&M’s. We repeatedly hear, “Harris was the easiest person we’ve ever worked with.” We’re confident you’ll say the same.

5 • HIGH IMPACT

Producing a live event is hard work. Why go to all of that effort if your audience isn’t truly impacted by their experience? Harris knows how to connect with your audience on a heart level, and impact their lives and work in a way that will leave them thinking about their experience for weeks, months and years to come.

6 • EXCELLENCE

“Harris is quite simply the best I’ve ever seen or heard.” We hear that on a regular basis, which means you can count on getting nothing short of excellence from Harris and his team. His 20+ years of experience can lead to a stress-free event. Choose excellence.

7 • UNIQUE

While everyone who partners with Harris continually raves about his presentations, many event planners have struggled to put their experience with him and his uniqueness into words. His approach to creating live experiences is unlike any other. In a world where so many try to be the same, why not work with someone who stands out as unique among the rest?

8 • ENTERTAINING

Ever sat through a boring speaker or a bad performance? A speaker who may have even had some incredible things to say, but none of it connected because it wasn’t entertaining? With a 20-year history as an award-winning entertainer, it’s no wonder Harris is one of the most entertaining speakers in the country. In fact, Harris’s path to becoming a communicator was largely in part to opening for other speakers who after the event said, “They should have just hired you to give the talk. That was hard to follow.”

9 • RELATABLE

Harris grew up on a farm in East TN in a poor community. By 21-years-old he had made a million dollars. By 22, he was bankrupt because of foolishness and debt. Now in his mid-30’s, he is leading and has grown a successful organization on solid leadership, positive character, and a lot of perspective gained from an experience-rich life and career entertaining in over 30 countries on 5 continents. Through it all, Harris has a unique ability to relate to everyone in the room, as if he is speaking directly to them.

10 • INTEGRITY AND TRUST

Maybe it’s old-fashioned, but we still believe in integrity and common sense. Harris and our entire team work hard to serve you, and will do so with gratitude and integrity. Join us in our efforts of valuing long-term partnerships instead of short-term gains by working with someone you can trust.
