Keynotes

"At our meeting we wanted a speaker who was more than just a speaker. We wanted someone who was entertaining - yet, we didn't just want an entertainer. We wanted an entertaining speaker who could actually say something of value. That's why we brought in Bob Garner. Bob delivered an opening keynote filled with empowering and usable information, astounding displays of mindreading and ESP, and plenty of laughs! Throughout his presentation, there were many times when our CEO and I would shake our heads in agreement, with regard to what Bob was saying to our sales force. Of course, his mindreading skills were unbelievable and the comedy clean. How he was able to read the minds of our team so accurately, as well as predict the outcome of an imaginary cruise was phenomenal! The lengthy standing ovation he received after his presentation reinforced how correct our decision was to bring Bob Garner to our meeting. Additionally, the time Bob spent individually with many of our sales people, employees and executives was not only amazing, but also brought comforting and empowering."

Pfaff is one of the largest distributor of household sewing machines and related accessories, and our group was the top authorized dealerships of Pfaff products throughout the world. We wanted a speaker who was highly entertaining, but who could deliver something of value. In today's economy, our people needed to hear what Bob had to say. His message of What Can I Do From This Point Forward was just perfect, addressed our group's concerns, and provided steps that were applicable to their needs. Obviously, the entertainment - the amazing demonstrations of mindreading, clean comedy and audience participation - was also right on target. "Once you see him, you'll never forget him" is truly a correct description of Bob Garner. Thanks again for a great job!"

Over 1300 of our customers representing some of the some of the largest and most prestigious corporations in the world, as well as our staff would agree that once you meet Bob, you will never forget him. Bob not only emceed our event, but he also helped out with our opening video, dazzled our guests during our hospitality event, participated in a skit with our executives, and then, on the final day of our event, this guy predicted the headlines of the newspaper. Throughout our event, Bob Garner kept the energy and excitement level high with his fascinating demonstrations of mindreading and ESP skills, clean humor, funny impersonations and audience participation all tied to our theme of 'Imagine More. Expect More.' If that weren't enough, Bob also spent quite a bit of time mingling with our guests and spoke to many on a one-to-one basis providing in-depth readings and answers to their personal questions. A number of our guests said that spending time with Bob was a life-changing event. Again... Bob Garner is awesome!"

"This was the 25th anniversary of the Orlando Chapter of the Society of Design Administration, and we wanted to give our group something special. We decided on Bob Garner and, let me tell you, we made the right decision. Bob's program was perfectly customized and delivered a unifying message to those in attendance. Of course, Bob's demonstrations of mindreading and ESP were outstanding, while his comedy was clean and refreshing.

In the audience were the principals of some of the most successful design firms in Orlando. These are smart people - yet Bob had them shaking their heads in disbelief at some of his amazing mentalism effects. If they weren't listening to what Bob had to say, they were gasping in amazement, laughing at his comedy or applauding with approval. Furthermore, Bob mingled and performed his mindreading miracles to small groups, prior to the beginning of our event and spent quite a bit of time speaking with our group and answering questions, when his astounding program was finished. This was one of the largest turnouts that we have ever had, and we also garnered the highest amount of sponsors for this event. Our luncheon was a super success and Bob Garner was definitely a part of that success."

"A standing ovation for Bob Garner! What a delight it was to have Bob come and speak at our 20th Anniversary Celebration. Our unique group represents cities, counties, and organizations in West Texas and every year, I try to coordinate an informative, yet fun program for our members. This year, Bob helped me to hit a major home run. His presentation was not only customized to feature our information, but also was highly entertaining and mystifying. Bob's intellectual entertainment of mindreading and demonstrations of ESP were absolutely fascinating and, at times, scary. How he was able to read the minds of our group was astonishing!

Additionally, Bob's sense of humor and quick wit, as well as his ability to interact with my group, added to his whole program in a wonderful way. During the cocktail hour, Bob mixed and mingled and also performed some one-on-one mindreading. Let me tell you, this also had a great impact on my group. They loved it, and it made them ready to see more of Bob that night. I had many text messages and calls after the event from my members stating how much they enjoyed the event and - especially - Bob. Finally, Bob was easy to work with and very professional. I know that there will be opportunities to work with him again in the future."

From sharing information with us about how our mind and thoughts work and how to diminish negative emotions like fear, worry and stress to embracing change and recapturing the passion for what we do, our group walked away with information that they can immediately use in their professional and personal lives.

"Bob's presentation wrapped up our awards banquet at Disney's Yacht Club Resort. My expectations for him were very high and he blew them out of the water! In addition to customizing his presentation to our group, he dazzled our group with his amazing demonstrations of mind reading and had us all laughing with his humor - we could tell that Bob had a fun time with our group, as well.

"I met Bob at a private event in Boston and knew that he would be a perfect fit for our Reality Executives Award Event at the MGM Grand/Foxwoods in Connecticut. I had Bob deliver a 10 minute kick-off opening on stage and then present more intimate work at a hospitality station - and Bob was swamped throughout the evening. Even after the event was over, there were so many people around him that Bob stayed longer than required to be with our people. In short, Bob was a huge hit! Additionally, Bob was great to work with and provided me with a few ideas on how to make the evening program run smoothly - which it did! If you want to add the 'WOW' effect to your event, I highly recommend that you use Bob Garner."

"A standing ovation from 400 of our sales reps from around the word is testimony to the fact that Bob Garner did an outstanding job for us at our 2010 Global Sales Kick-Off. His amazing demonstrations of mindreading, audience interaction, and great comedy wrapped around our corporate message was the perfect way to end our evening event. Even more telling as to the response to Bob was that after the show, Bob was swamped by many asking questions - all of which Bob took the time to answer. He even performed a few close-up effects to their delight! Again, the effects had us amazed and the comedy had has us laughing. His slogan - 'Once you see him, you'll never forget him' - is an apt description of Bob Garner."

- Sterling Commerce 2010 Global Sales Kick-Off

"'Once you see him, you will never forget him' is exactly true, when you're talking about Bob Garner. Within minutes of Bob meeting our staff, he was doing amazing things. Yet, the best was still to come. As our after-dinner speaker, Bob took our top sales people on a fascinating, mysterious, and fun journey that had everyone on the edge of their seats. Bob customized his program to meet our needs and reinforced the message that we wanted our audience to hear. He reminded them that they should constantly recapture their passion and that we are here to help them be more successful.

In addition to his message, Bob's mindreading skills blew people away. Even though Bob had never met 95% of our group before that night, he accurately revealed our inner thoughts. He read minds, predicted the future, divulged the names of friends, relatives, and pets, as well as phone numbers, social security numbers, and personal addresses, while still making us all laugh and smile.

After his presentation, we offered our group the opportunity to meet with Bob and immediately he was surrounded. He answered questions on the power of the mind and continued amazing people on a more intimate level. On top of his presentations, Bob was a total professional and a pleasure with whom to work. We hope to do so again, in the future."

- Manhattan Associates

"This is the 2nd year in a row that we had Bob Garner provide the evening's entertainment at our annual Client Forum and Bob did another super job. Over 350 of our top customers with responsibilities ranging from payroll and finance to HR, IT, administration, and staffing were in attendance at this year's conference, and Bob helped to make it a grand success. His customized presentation reinforced our message of client connectivity in a unique and memorable way, while his mentalism and ESP demonstrations were not only out of this world, but also scary! (How does he know the names of your pets? How does he tell you not only the address, city and state of your childhood home, but then also describe what it looked like from the inside? And that is just the tip if the iceberg.)

There is no way that anyone can do what Bob does - but he does it, then makes us laugh, then delivers a message on teamwork, communication or enthusiasm. Additionally, during the cocktail hour Bob mingled with our customers and performed some of his one-on-one mentalism and psychic readings and then remained after his program, for almost two hours, reading minds and talking to our customers ... incredible! On stage and off, Bob was a delight to work with and we look forward to experiencing his phenomenal talents again."
