Keynote Speaker | Illusionist | Event Consultant | Entrepreneur
"Harris was great! Absolutely phenomenal...I was blown away."
— John Maxwell, Legendary Leadership Expert
You’re asking your team, leaders or attendees to think in a new way. But you haven’t given them the tools they need in order to think differently. Innovation, creativity, and an understanding of the magical power of story is what you need from your organization.
The single, most successful way to provide that understanding is through a shared, transformative live experience. We understand that live events are often stressful, boring and unproductive, ending in a waste of valuable resources. That leaves you stressed out and often uncertain about who to book as your keynote speaker. Who wants to embarrass themselves by forever being known as the one who booked the speaker who bored everyone in the room? No one does.
It doesn’t have to be that way. In Harris’s keynotes, he helps teams understand the power of child-like wonder, imagination, and curiosity, and how to harness that power to create and innovate in ways that far outpace and outproduce the competition. And he does so in a way most speakers can’t.
By relying on a 20-year career as an award-winning, master illusionist, Harris brings powerful stories and principles to life through engaging, visual illustrations that are interactive, unforgettable and truly life-changing. More than a just another speaker, Harris will help you and the people you lead push past the barriers that are holding so many back from their fullest potential. Let Harris help you awaken wonder in your organization, so that you can find yourself standing back in awe of the change in your people.

What if the real secret to unlimited creativity and innovation had everything to do with how you use your imagination? It’s a common myth that imagination is something every child readily uses, then stops using as we grow up. But what if that wasn’t the case? In this transformative speech, Harris will make you aware of the dark side of your imagination, how it’s being misused and wasted, and how tap into an unlimited potential to create and innovate by reawakening child-like wonder.
Since the beginning of time human beings have told stories. Stories are how we make sense of everything. But often, organizations fail to communicate clearly as a result of losing the art of telling stories, and even those who do engage in storytelling rarely make use of its most powerful tool: Wonder. In this educational and inspirational talk, learn how to invoke wonder, curiosity and imagination in the stories you tell, how to use those stories to communicate
powerful ideas, and discover why teams of people from companies like Disney Imagineering, Pinterest, Intel, IBM and more pay to attend STORY, the annual conference-style gathering produced by Harris and his team.

Top 10 Reasons to Work with Harris
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.
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.
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.
“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.
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?
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.”
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.
