Billy Riggs explains what a "DISillusionist" is

Billy Riggs: A Half Glass Full

The Power of  a PMA (Positively Magical Attitude)! The single most important factor in success is attitude. A positive attitude directly impacts the bottom line because it improves performance, reduces turnover, and decreases absenteeism. Best of all, a fabulous attitude is contagious. Help your staff embrace change with a smile, adjust to hardship with optimism, and strive to be their best each and every day by experiencing the “Magic of Attitude!” This unique and energetic combination of entertainment, comedy, and enlightenment allows world-class illusionist Billy Riggs to demonstrate how attitude and performance are inextricably linked, and motivates your staff to turn their new attitude into profitable action. Funny attitude speaker Billy Riggs is just what the doctor ordered!

How to Become a Born Leader. Bosses are a dime a dozen; leaders are priceless. Employees obey bosses only because they fear they will be rendered more miserable if they disobey than if they obey. Morale suffers, key people depart and productivity sags. But a genuine leader inspires team members to want to do their work. Employees follow true leaders out of respect and admiration. They work out of a sense of shared ownership of goals and passion for the fulfillment of a noble mission. Learn the keys to climbing the “Leadership Pyramid” through six distinct stages – from a man who’s been to the top of the pyramid twice – and begin the rewarding journey from mere boss to leader. Better still, you’ll learn while laughing through an entertaining and fun program. More than any other topic, Billy Riggs is a leadership motivational speaker.  He is a natural and highly effective leader and will help you become one, too. 

The Magic Touch: Positively Dazzling Service. Based on Billy Riggs’ book, The Magic Touch, this keynote challenges the old ways of customer retention and shows that all business is genuinely show business. The Magic Touch is customer experience re-imagined, taken to a whole new level. Customer service today is not just doing the old things better (though this is vital), it is doing entirely new things. It is delivering service with the style and flair of a Broadway musical. In this hilarious, entertaining and keynote, Billy reveals how to add a magic touch to every customer encounter.

Positively Magical Selling! Demolishing the psychological barriers that limit salespeople and unleashing the attitudes that makes them soar! Effective selling is the result of accurate beliefs – beliefs about the marketplace, your prospects, lead generation, clients, and yourself. Consequently, your greatest obstacles to stratospheric sales success are your illusions, faulty beliefs that lurk in the subconscious mind to lower self-confidence, undermine motivation, and reduce closing ratios. In this fascinating combination of classic magic, humor, and education, professional illusionist Billy Riggs helps eliminate these psychological glass ceilings, propelling your sales force to more leads, higher sales and greater profits. Billy Riggs is a hilarious motivational speaker and magician, and your people will talk about him the whole year!
