Keynote Speaker

Wayne Lee | Comedic Hypnotist and Performance Expert

What does it mean to Live the Laughter? With Wayne Lee it means a highly interactive hypnosis show as unique as it is hilarious. It means gut-splitting laughter and improbable scenes acted out by audience members no longer inhibited by their fears. Wayne’s show is always clean, classy and tasteful. Everyone has a great time and the participants become the stars and heroes of the event. In addition to being hilarious, this show is inspiring, as Wayne gives all the participants a life-changing suggestion to help them achieve any personal or professional goal. This powerful suggestion will also be a tool to help them perform better at work and at home.
