Brendan was an absolute highlight of the conference. Brendan struck a chord with so many people, both with his comedy and his personal story. Such a clever magician as well and many delegates commented they had never seen a magician perform live before (or no one of Brendan's caliber) and they were truly amazed! The evening social function was just the icing on the cake for those that attended that. Brendan delivered an extremely polished keynote that incorporated very clever comedy and one-liners, incredible magic tricks as well as a truly humbling and inspirational personal story to tell. Every single person left the auditorium beaming! All in all, we really appreciated the time Brendan took to research how elements of teaching/students/Oamaru could be incorporated into his keynote. That absolutely gave him the x-factor performance.

Great entertainment to break up an awards evening, so it warmed the evening up with fun. The customised experience was really special and allowing us to deliver a message in a special way was very unique and a great experience, with such a short brief you really worked your magic! Would definitely recommend a customised message delivery as this is very special and unique and from an event manager point of view, very cool! The special gift is the centrepiece of our marketing table so that we can all remember this great night, thank you!

Super satisfying to work with Brendan for the second time round. He is so professional and can really personalise content. He increased the energy and engagement, everyone was amazed. They were watching the event over again to try and figure out his magic. It was the conversation the next day in our online team meetings. Absolutely recommend Brendan, his magic is mind blowing and his energy is so infectious as part of any event that you have.

Loved it. Brendan was a great host. Loved how he involved the virtual audience and the trick at the end capturing the date and time was amazing.
