A multi-talented powerhouse: an experienced presenter and seasoned performer, Devin Henderson has logged thousands of performances as an award-winning comedian and magician and in-demand keynote speaker over his nearly two decade professional career. Devin’s passion is using his unique talents and experiences to inspire individuals and organizations to discover their greatest potential and resilience to keep going no matter what.

In 2014, Devin was honored when the producers of America’s Got Talent invited him to Hollywood to audition for Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel, and an audience of 5,000. It was an amazing and pivotal moment in Devin’s career and life, even though it went very differently than expected. After being the first person in the history of America’s Got Talent to facilitate live on-stage audience participation and delivering what he considered one of his best performances to date, he did not pass the audition and the segment never aired. Learning how to rise through such an intense and unexpected disappointment was a result of his lifelong pursuit to always strive toward “Something Greater.”

Now, Devin’s greatest challenges, accomplishments and lessons are interwoven into an unforgettable experience that inspires audiences to stay mentally strong and never give up. He does this through a unique combination of mind-blowing magic, heartfelt storytelling, humor, and audience interaction that audiences have called “unreal,” “unexpected,” and “unforgettable.”

Devin is a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), a designation conferred by the National Speakers Association on those who have earned it by meeting strict criteria (think of CSP like the black belt of public speaking). Devin began his entertainment career in 2004 as a comedy magician and soon after began using his comedy and magic to inspire audiences of professionals across the United States.

What originally inspired Devin to become a performer? From piano recitals at age 6, to magic in talent shows at age 12, to drumline competitions in high school and eventually becoming an award-winning magician and professional speaker, Devin has always been passionate about uplifting audiences and inspiring them to achieve new levels of greatness.

Devin hails from Kansas City and is married to the world’s most amazing woman. He has seven daughters. Yes, seven. Daughters.

Virtual Experience

Devin’s virtual experience is not only interactive, but takes advantage of the unique interaction opportunities that are only possible in an online setting.

The Magic of “On-Stage Seating”

  • “On Stage Seating” makes your people the star (think: leaders, team members, event participants, etc.). Audiences love to see key individuals on the virtual “hotseat” experiencing a magic/mentalism trick 1-1 with Devin, responding with wide-eyed wonder, and never knowing what will happen next!
  • As fellow ON-Stage and Regular Participants watch on, On-Stage Seating makes everyone feel like they are in the front row of a Las Vegas Show.
  • “On Stage Seating” solves a common problem when it comes to engaging, interactive presentations:

a) when all participants are muted the entire time, the virtual environment can feel sterile and lifeless, however

b) when all participants are unmuted, the background sounds of a large group can quickly turn into auditory chaos and distraction. By having a select number of participants umuted (typically around five), all participants will get to feel like they are part of a powerful shared EXPERIENCE, and the engagement and laughter of the “on-stage seating” participants only makes the group at large respond and engage more with the performance and message.

The Magic of Humor

  • Humor is a timeless strategy to build energy and keep audience members engaged, connected, and part of a unified experience. Humor is artfully woven throughout the presentation.
  • In the virtual space, being able to hear the laughter from the featured On-Stage Seating participants encourages all participants to laugh in key areas where humor highlights the message, reducing stress and inspiring participants to be fully present throughout the presentation.

The Magic of an Engaged Chat

  • Devin interacts with the chat throughout the presentation so everyone can enjoy personal interaction with him and each other. At the end of the presentation, Devin asks, “How are you feeling now?” Common answers include, “Motivated!” “Inspired!” “”In Awe” and “Grateful.”

The Magic of an Inspiring, Relevant Message

  • This presentation incorporates storytelling elements that audience members routinely say feels relatable, emotional, and like “their story” as if Devin was talking directly to them.
  • This storytelling method allows the key lessons to sink deeper and keeps audience members hanging on every word.
