Sunday, October 20 Closing Keynote
     Devin Henderson, The Drop Guy


Funny motivational speaker and corporate comedian Devin Henderson is known by many simply as “The Drop Guy.” Devin speaks to organizations nationwide about how to DROP mental barriers that eliminate effectiveness and pick UP practices that elevate excellence. But he is no ordinary keynote speaker. Devin incorporates comedy, magic, and soccer skills into his audience-interactive message. He has presented in all fifty states except Hawaii, Alaska, and about fifteen others. “Devin Henderson is engaging, funny, very smart and incredibly handsome.” -Ginger Henderson, Devin’s mom.

Devin has been professionally cracking up, amazing and inspiring audiences for fifteen years. He has opened for comedians Sinbad and Mike Birbiglia and is a Certified Speaking Professional, which is like the black belt of public speaking. So don’t mess with him – his humor is lethal. Devin is also a self-published author. “Share Your Magic” is his best-selling book of all time, mainly because it’s his only book. Devin wrote this bio himself, which is challenging and actually kind of weird.
