STORY Conference leader, Master Illusionist & Communicator
Harris III Text Reviews
Harris has an incredible ability to marry storytelling with illusion to inspire wonder and deep appreciation for life's possibilities. At Dairy West, we encourage people to be fascinated, rather than frustrated, and Harris reinforces the importance of a curious mindset both for us as individuals and for those we impact.
Karianne Fallow, CEO - CEO, Dairy West
The feat of growing something into one of the most vibrant creative communities like STORY alone should be evidence enough that he has the unique experience to help you make your wildest dream for the future and your organization your most inspiring reality.
Ken Black, Former VP of Design Future - Nike
Harris III was exactly the speaker we needed to end our virtual conference. As the CEO of an organization that represents 5,800 dairy farmers, it is vitally important that we continue to share our stories. Harris showed us how to reawaken the wonder and adapt in these challenging times. We were a little skeptical of how the illusions would work virtually but everything went flawlessly and Harris was a huge hit.
Molly Pelzer - CEO of Midwest Dairy
Harris III has a powerful way of connecting with his audiences to really make you think, wonder and be moved. His storytelling skills are unlike any other speaker I've seen throughout the years - he's genuine, sincere and truly magical. You could see the awe in our leaders' faces as he spoke to them and could feel the excitement each leader had after listening to him. I was moved to tears and will always remember Harris and his message. What more can you ask for from a speaker?

I am such a big fan of Harris III. In my 20+ years with DreamWorks Animation, the stories that lasted weren't just about box office - they resonated on a personal level. Harris understands this intuitively. Not only is he a talented illusionist, Harris knows the power of Story to grab the heart. I always clear my calendar when Harris is in town, because I know I will come away changed for the better.

Harris's greatest art is when he gets your eyes, ears and mind to feast on deception, and then in one abracadabra 'ah ha' moment, causes you to walk away with your heart full of truth! This guy is God good!
Tony Nolan - Author and Speaker
Our entire staff along with the entire audience of 11,000 people were in awe of his performance--we are still receiving great feedback. Harris is a true professional to work with, and I couldn't recommend him higher!"

As the Systems Failure Analyst for NASA, it's my job to see what others miss. Harris is amazing . . . I didn't catch a thing.
Larry Ludwig - NASA, Materials Science Division
Harris understands the true art of connecting with an audience, and presents so much more than just a 'show.' He takes the audience on an exciting journey, full of laughter, transparent stories, wonder and amazement.
Julie Arnold - North Point Resources
I've seen multiple presentations by Harris in multiple settings, and every one of them has left me in awe. He's one of the most talented people I've ever experienced. He is an incredible storyteller, communicator, and performer, and his unique ability to reawaken wonder and speak to the role that wonder plays in our life and work is a game-changer for you and those you lead!

In corporate events around the world, we find ourselves following a routine of educating one another. But our listeners aren't seeking education--they are longing for enchantment. If we are are to survive, corporations and organizations must leverage the amazing power of story. If you are seeking a dynamic and memorable speaker, I would highly recommend Harris for your next event. Harris leverages his masterful storytelling and illusionist skills to invoke wonder which allows the audience to tap into their imagination and help them to dream bigger. He is able to enchant audiences and provide insights and story that aligns with your target messaging. I've seen Harris on stage at several events and I can remember each one. That's something I can't say for most speakers.
Louis Richardson, Chief Storyteller - IBM
Harris's presentation is breathtaking, and perhaps only trumped by his deep character and hopeful spirit. His enthusiasm for wonder is contagious.
Scott Harrison, Founder - Charity Water
I don't think there was a dry eye in the room at the end. It was nothing like our company has ever seen, done, said, etc. I am so grateful for the experience and the feedback from our staff was overwhelming. Harris is a tremendous individual and a powerful speaker. I felt his truth in my heart and he makes me want to be a better leader and a better person.
Lauren Hubbard - Arcadis
Harris has a gift for communicating ideas that most people don't understand.

Harris has a personal track record of incredibly diverse and remarkable accomplishments. He combines the soft skills of appreciation and deep listening, with sharp insight and intuition, and a powerful and unrelenting commitment and drive to achieve the highest potential of any vision. He knows how to manifest and actualize dreams for the future.
Gillian Ferrabee, Former Director of Creative Labs, - Cirque du Soleil
Harris did a fantastic job for our national medical meeting. On our planning calls we were concerned the audience of scientists may be skeptical of the message. He understood and include science to credit his content. Harris's talk did everything we asked. He inspired, entertained, engaged the large virtual audience, and incorporated our theme of "Be Bold" into the talk associating it with the message. He was receiving great feedback in the chat throughout and we received lots of enthusiastic comments after. Numerous comments were just they thought they knew where he was going he surprised them again.
