"You did an awesome job. I don't know how many times you've done the lecture, but it came off super professional and polished. I especially like the exercises you did with improvisation. They really illustrated your point and they were so much fun to watch. Are you doing the lecture anywhere else?" - Josh Norris, President of Interactive Magic

"I just got home from my SAM Assembly meeting here in Maryland and we had the good fortune to host a great lecture on creativity by Kyle and Kelly Peron. Kyle and Kelly presented a well-paced, very informative, humorous lecture and their passion for magic really showed. Kyle had us do some very funny improv exercises that illustrated his points about creative thinking and thinking on your feet when needed, and also
shared some of his material from his family shows. It was an evening well spent and I hope others will get the chance to attend one of their lectures in the future." - Charley, Assembly 141
