What's Under Your Bigtop? Keynote

“I am so glad I booked you to speak. You were great!! I really liked your talk, it honestly put into words how I am trying to grow both professionally and personally.

Joshua has learned a lot about taking risks. He built his career taking the actions others were too afraid or complacent to take. This talk is all about how his action focused thinking changed his life.

When Joshua is standing before your group, the audience always leans forward. 

He shares tales from his years training and performing with Chinese acrobats, his time as a forest fire fighter, the challenges of owning one of the largest variety artist booking agencies in the Mid-West and becoming one of only 100 sword swallowers in the world (he also demonstrates that skill).

These stories and anecdotes form a dramatic backdrop to this mind blowing keynote.
