The TEDx Talk: “How to Magically Connect with Anyone”

On June 1, 2015 Brian delivered a 14 min talk to 80 high school students at a small TEDx conference held in Manchester, CT.

That talk has since become one of the most popular TEDx talks in history. It has been viewed on YouTube over 2 million times and shared around the world.

Entitled “How to Magically Connect with Anyone,” Brian takes the audience on a journey to discover how he learned to make meaningful connections with the people in his life. He captivated the audience with stories from his career in magic, and delighted them with live magic tricks to demonstrate his point.

Brian’s TEDx talk has since been named one of:
-“7 Lifechanging TED Talks” by The Odyssey Online
-“5 Must Watch TED Talks for College Students” by Kitabitukda
-“5 TED Talks to Watch Before an Interview” by ULoop College Business News.

Jeremey Donovan, the international best-selling author of “How to Deliver a TED Talk” raved:

“You are an amazing performer and speaker. One of the best TEDx talks I have ever seen!”
