After-Dinner Entertainment 

Bob Higa presents an outstanding after-dinner program that makes for an unusual and unforgettable audience experience. Opening with dazzling magic accompanied by dynamic music, this is magic in its purest form. Bob Higa makes objects appear, disappear, and transform right before your eyes in this exciting and dramatic performance. The next segment focuses on your message, featuring laughter and audience participation. Higa uses his business knowledge and presentation wizardry to weave in the client's own messages regarding "change, teamwork, partnership & challenges." Higa's finale is a replication of Houdini's famous escape "Metamorphosis." Here, two volunteers inspect a wooden packing crate. Higa's assistant is then tied in a bag and locked inside the crate. The crate is enveloped by a canvas cover and secured with 8 feet of rope. Instantly, Higa and his assistant are magically transposed.

Magic! More than Meets the Eye is 25% speaking and 75% magic.

Celebrate the Magic!

Keynote Bob Higa's keynote presentation has received rave reviews from clients and standing ovations from his audience. Here Higa stresses that magic is in each of us and we have the power to deliver amazing results. "Celebrate the Magic" questions our standard approach to every day issues and encourages "looking at the same things, yet seeing them differently." Bob Higa suggests that the real magical experience is not about tricks and illusions but how we make customers and employees feel.

Capture the Magic is 75% speaking and 25% magic.

General Session Creative 

This program reinforces your meeting theme and features Bob Higa as the thread of continuity. This approach brings executives and audience members into the mix, making them the stars of the show. And, when baffling illusions and humor are combined with the clients' messages, the audience will recall time and time again the key points of your message. This kind of motivation lasts all year long.

Magical Participation for Executive 

Bob Higa is a master at teaching executives the secrets of being amazing. Higa knows that the pieces the executives perform must be powerful and flawless, deliver the message and be fun. Whether it's creating a spectacular appearance on stage or designing a magic piece to enhance a presentation, Higa's teaching always considers the limited time each executive has to learn his or her magical moment. This is perfect way for the executive to demonstrate the power of taking a risk and getting outside their "comfort zone" thus bringing them closer to their team.

Customized to your business or industry, these exercises draw direct parallels to your team's every day challenges. Higa suggests that the way people think affect the way they feel.

Director Corporate Quality for Business Systems

Thanks for the outstanding job you and your team did for our Total Customer Satisfaction Competition Awards Presentation. This meeting celebrates the accomplishments of the top 24 teams out of over 5,000 worldwide and is an integral part of Total Customer Satisfaction. Your program was the best we've ever had. The illusions were baffling enough to amaze a group of tough engineers. Our audience was particularly impressed with how you wove the Motorola messages of creative thinking, continuous improvement, and total customer satisfaction throughout your presentation. The real value of your program came from your knowledge and understanding of the total customer satisfaction concept. Personally, I loved how you let our audience know that they are the real "'magic" behind Motorola's success.

President Consumer Foods Sales Division

Thank you for your outstanding presentation that helped make our annual National Sales Meeting a resounding success. The creativity and imaginative input as well as your business knowledge provided a marvelous blend. Each of our Vice Presidents remarked about the patience of you and your staff throughout the long days of preparation. And finally, the "magic" was terrific.

Chairman of the Board and CEO

We had just successfully completed the most significant restructuring in the corporation's 110-year history. The theme we chose for our celebration was magic -- the magic that comes from hard work, sound planning and faultless execution. Your message and performance exactly fit that equation. You held the audience's attention from the moment you stepped on stage until your finale. You are AMAZING and a THRILL to your audience.

Customer Satisfaction Program Manager

Thank you very much for a truly outstanding performance. You were fun, entertaining and magical. You amazed our attendees with your ability to connect your illusions to our business goals. Your ability to understand our business and even write a script for our executives was incredible. As you know, we've adopted your saying "Genuine magic happens when reality exceeds expectations." As IBM constantly strives to "Be The Best", we know we need to exceed our customers' expectations. You've already accomplished that mission. YOU ARE THE BEST!
