“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your brilliant performance and address to the Toronto Raptors. I know that the players enjoyed your show immensely and a number have said it was the best player dinner they have attended. As you can see by their latest 4 game winning streak I think most of them took the knowledge you gave them and are “game ready” for winning.”

– Toronto Raptors


“While there was some initial trepidation of inviting a “magician”, I no longer have any reservations. The comments and evaluations of the HR executives indicate that your presentation was quite magical in addressing the issue of change management in a very professional manner. Although you label yourself as an entertainer and magician, I think the more appropriate label is inspirational speaker. I was most appreciative that you customized your presentation to fit our format. The outcome was most successful for all concerned.”

– The Conference Board of Canada


“In brief – you were simply outstanding! While most people are impressed with your magical talents, many also have a keen sense of appreciation as to how many of your magical design concepts can be so readily applied to the way we think and act in a business environment. For example, your ‘creative thinking presentation’ (Magic by Design) was an exceptionally well structured lead into our break-out sessions at the PLC.”

– Deloitte & Touche Management Consultants


“As excited as I was to have engaged you as our headline speaker at this years annual Global Private Banking Conference, nothing could have prepared me for the exceptional presentation you delivered to our audience. Your performance was captivating. The lessons you gave by drawing comparisons between our two businesses were thought provoking, memorable, and right on target!”

– Royal Bank of Canada


“After having seen many speakers in the past, I believe there are not many who can compare themselves with the informative and, yet at the same time, entertaining style of David Ben.”

– BDO Dunwoody


“Your presentation last night was excellent. We could not have picked a better speaker to deliver our message. Thank you for making me look good for recommending you.”- Osler Hoskin & Harcourt”Your presentation at our luncheon was truly one of the highlights of this year’s event, and you left our audience abuzz with ideas. Your insight into the “magic” that happens when people challenge their assumptions is something all of us can learn from. And you are a delightful performer, clearly able to establish a quick rapport with a crowd.”

– Meetings & Incentives Travel


“The magic and the message in your presentation was well received by our staff. I’m very pleased with how well you were able to customize the presentation to suit our requirements. It was thoroughly entertaining while combining an important business message. All in all, an excellent performance.”

– The National Life Assurance Company of Canada


“David’s presentation helped to break through the adult defenses. He shocked and delighted. He drew out and held the “children” in open wonder while gently guiding them through alternative ways of thinking, feeling and responding. David’s presentation was completely controlled, completely professional and completely what I wanted.”

– Jannex Enterprises (1980) Limited


“I found that although we had multiple levels of associates at GIA in attendance, your ‘product’ was received equally well by all 100 or so people. The word I got from Directors was ‘I will be able to refer to what David shared all year long.'”

– Gemological Institute of America


“We both enjoyed working with you and appreciated your passion, attention to detail, flexibility, creativity and desire to provide the very best. The presentation was not only entertaining for our audience, but also very nicely complemented our key National Sales Meeting messages in a manner which proactively sets the table to maximize our business success today, tomorrow and in the future.”

– Alcon


“Your presentation at our annual sales seminar was a perfect mix of information and magical mastery. You captivated and entertained our group and certainly achieved the objective of lateral vs vertical thinking. Thank you again for a truly ‘magical’ presentation.”

– Standard Radio Inc.


“I’d like to take this opportunity on behalf of the entire Public Affairs team, to thank you for your astounding motivational speech. Your performance left us all spellbound. We still don’t know how you did it, but we’re sure glad that you did!”

– Bell


“The feedback from our sales people was very positive and we were all impressed by your ‘lateral thinking’ process, which has taught us some new and creative selling techniques.”
