"Thanks for your highly entertaining message that reminded me how individually amazing each one of us is. Thanks for stating so eloquently that we’re here to help each other and unless we share our intentions we won’t know how to give (or get) help. Thanks for making our customer’s time away from their businesses valuable. Thanks for making me think and laugh and believe that just about everything really IS possible. I look forward to the next time our paths cross and hope that it will be soon!"
Robin Weimer - Healthcare Manager - U.S. Foodservice Denver

"Your performance was like none we have ever had before. It will be spoken of for years to come.

"Thank you for your performance at our recent convention event. Having you greet guests at the front door brought an instant smile to their face. The show was the highlight of the evening. Trust me when I say, I've never seen some of those people laugh and you kept them laughing for 45 minutes. It was a treat for me to see you but it was an equal treat to see my guests enjoying the evening. You are a planner's dream with your awesome communication skills, your desire to please and the total professionalism with which you approach the client."
Anne Glasgow - Texas Society of Professional Surveyors
"I think your special talents bring a lot of flash to the evening and I appreciate the enthusiastic way you engage each employee and their family members. It's personal, warm and positive."

"This was our best meeting yet and most of it was because of your mingling and the after dinner program. I really appreciate your efforts going into this and you did a fabulous job! I will certainly keep you in mind for our next meeting and will recommend you whenever I get a chance."
Eric Lockart - Aventine Renewable Energy, Inc.
"I can't speak highly enough about David and his ability to not only entertain, but deliver a message that is consistent with the organization. We have been conducting conventions for our organization for 25 years and David is one of the most professional people I have had the privilege to work with. I am truly grateful to David for making our last 2 conventions the success that they were and I would not hesitate to have him back in the future."
Joe Primavera, Director of Marketing - Sundek Corp.
"We just concluded our 2004 Louisiana Bed and Breakfast Association Annual Conference... rated as one of the most successful programs in recent years. Contributing to that result was the entertainment at our Grand Banquet. David Hira totally captivated his audience with close-up prestidigitation during the reception and later with a dinner performance of startling illusionary magic and motivational anecdotes custom tailored to fit our conference theme. The standing ovation at the end of the evening said it all, and as conference planner, it was just the kind of magical experience I had hoped to bring to our group. David is unique, professional and highly recommended."
Joe Rabhan - Conference Chairman
"Thank you for entertaining our group. I've been in the entertainment business for more than thirty years. I worked with Bob Hope for a little more than two years and with Universal Studios for more years than I'd like to admit. I've done mostly TV, but a lot of stage too, and while I've seen performers who could match you, I've never seen anyone better. "
W. Shields - Writer/Producer
"All of our members in attendance agreed that to date your presentation was the most informative both personally and professionally. That's always a winning combination!"
Cammi O'Teter - American Business Women Association
"Your enthusiasm is fantastic. Your ideas made my mind race with possibilities."
Jim Rode, Photographer - Prof. Wedding Guild
"Thank you so much for spending the day with us at our leadership conference. You made our event a success. I overheard students buzzing about your performance and program. Thanks for being magical, inspirational and fun. Great job!"
