Keep reading to find out EXACTLY what you must know before hiring your entertainer or speaker...
1. IS YOUR SPEAKER BORING?
A modern, 21st century audience wants and demands a faster pace…or else they will tune out! Since Cris Johnson understands this, he uses a variety of techniques to captivate your group including humor, interaction, magic, mind reading and most importantly, a dynamic style and fast pace.
2. DOES YOUR SPEAKER OFFER CONTENT OR JUST "FLUFF?"
Many speakers spend an hour talking about nothing more than a positive attitude, but for your investment to be truly beneficial, your speaker needs to provide your group with real-life "tools" that will enhance their lives! Cris understands people, how their minds work, and what is needed to engage their minds and inspire change. He also has the training and credentials - He is a Board Certified Hypnotist* and Instructor of Hypnosis through the National Guild of Hypnotists, Certified Master Practitioner and Trainer of NLP and Certified Stress Consultant through the International Hypnosis Association, which means he has the proper training to guarantee your group an educational and enjoyable event.
(*only 2% of the 14,000 NGH hypnotists world wide are Board Certified.)

Cris' programs are 100% clean. If anyone leaves the program unhappy or offended, you get it FREE, and in 15 years, no one has taken him up on it!

Cris guarantees he'll be the easiest performer you EVER work with. He can adapt to any performing situation and he'll even pay the Gigmaster's 5% booking fee for you.
5. DOES YOUR SPEAKER OFFER A VARIETY OF PROGRAM OPTIONS?
Many presenters only offer one act and nothing else. As you know, no one program can be all things to all people! Therefore, Cris offers a variety of programs to suit different needs, as well as customization.
