Don’t Take it From Us – Here’s What Clients and Audience Members Have Been Saying About Avish’s “Ding Happens!” Presentations:

Thank you for presenting at our CEO Conference. You came highly recommended from our CEO and did not disappoint. Your programme was the perfect way to open our second day; it changed the tone and pace from the first day and allowed our audience to laugh be inspired and energized for the future.

The feedback was very positive; your programme was truly memorable and throughout the rest of the conference, people remembered your ‘Ding Happens!’ message. You delivered it in an exciting and fun way, with pertinent and easy-to-understand messages, delivered in a way that was funny and really engaged our crowd. Any organization planning an internal conference would really benefit from the energy, content, and humour that you bring to the event. Thank you again.

You were the best keynote speaker I’ve ever heard in all my years in HR!

To be honest, there was some concern and resistance when we first thought about hiring Avish because his topic of using improv comedy for business skills is so different from what we normally expect at a financial conference. I am glad we pushed through that – the unique approach turned out to be a perfect fit for our event! The energy, style, interaction, and humor were amazing at getting people motivated and recharged to enjoy the rest of the conference. Not only that, but the message was very applicable to everyone in attendance.

I connected with the client today. She said you were ‘amazing.’ She thought you were a ‘perfect mix of funny delivery with appropriate message, kept everyone engaged the entire time, and were a great way to start the conference.

You set a great tone and energy level for the next 2 days of technical training and meetings. During those next 2 days many people were using the terms and concepts you presented to us about how change and how you choose to responds to it as well as the importance of having fun while you work. You gave us all a new, fun language with which to communicate and we had fun using it!

I really enjoyed your presentation! A perfect way to end the conference! It was very interesting and of course very funny! We all need to laugh a little more! As a matter of fact, I was walking around this morning, saying Ding happens, because it was, but I am better for it today, thanks to you!

Avish, may I take this opportunity to tell you how much I enjoyed hearing you speak today at Johns Hopkins University . . . and how inspirational your speech was.

And then there’s the humor! How much better and how much more of an impact (to me, anyway) a speech has with humor in it! I found myself laughing so hard, and it wasn’t just me – the people on both sides of me were laughing like that, too.

Then . . . I just had a conversation with a co-worker who couldn’t wait to bring up lunch today, your presentation, and the impact it had on her! The ‘Yes, and’ vs. the ‘Yes, but!’ And then there are those ‘Dings!’ There are events going on in her life that she didn’t necessarily understand, nor did she have explanations for; she now calls them ‘Dings,’ and those Dings have meaning!

Thank you again, Avish, for an experience that will surely have a lasting and positive impact on me and, I’m sure, many others as well.

’Awesome,’ ‘Funny,’ and ‘Entertaining’ were just three of the many positive comments we received on our post-event evaluations of Avish’s “Ding Happens” closing presentation for our annual sales conference.

In addition to the humor, our attendees appreciated that Avish had solid content and techniques that they could put to everyday use. The fact that the program was funny, interactive, and entertaining just made the information stick that much more effectively.

Our only hesitation before Avish’s presentation was wondering, ‘will he be as funny as we think?’ Fortunately the answer was a resounding ‘yes!’

Avish was professional, memorable, engaging, and, of course funny. Any sales conference or meeting would be lucky to have Avish speak at their event!”

“We recently hired Avish to kick off our company’s ‘Inspire YOU’ event. We invited our clients to participate and learn ideas and techniques to make them more effective in their work, so needless to say, it was important to make a great impression. Fortunately, Avish did an amazing job, impressed our attendees, and his session was rated as ‘the most exciting’ of the day!

The feedback from our attendees was extremely positive. In addition to being hilarious and high-energy, people appreciated being given specific tools they could take back to their organizations and apply and share right away. Avish’s keynote is a perfect way to start or end a conference, and we could not be happier with the job he did!”

Avish recently presented a keynote for the Pennsylvania Assisted Living Association’s Annual state conference, and it was a rousing success! The energy, humor, an interaction was the perfect way to kick off our final day. Avish’s program was not only funny and engaging, but it also provided practical tips and advice that would help any assisted living professional be more effective.

The feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, with more than a few citing it as the highlight of the event. Avish was also very easy to work with, which, as the conference organizer, gave me one less thing to worry about. I would recommend Avish as a keynote or general session speaker without hesitation!”

“I wanted to tell you how very much I enjoyed your speech at the SALI convention! You are a funny, smart guy. I loved the ‘Yes And’ instead of ‘Yes But’ part, And have been working on that. It’s actually fun. Also I benefited from the dealing with the unexpected, and controlling only the controllable. Life IS like the Ding game. That was valuable to me because I realized that I was ‘stubbornly stuck in the muck’ – since I was young I had Plan A for my life, but when it didn’t work out, I never had Plan B. That speech helped me to get rid of some dead weight. It’s refreshing to feel some forward movement in my life in that arena, so thank you for that most helpful information. The fun presentation made it so much more memorable and palatable.

By the way, I had to trick and drag my girlfriend to listen to you, but afterwards she said she was surprised that she actually really enjoyed it and got practical information out of it. She thanked me for dragging her there! So thank you once more for a wonderful motivational speech.

I am delighted to offer this recommendation to Avish Parashar for his extraordinary support when a last minute need arose due to weather for a chapter meeting speaker. Without hesitation, Avish willingly accepted our invitation and hit a home run with his interactive, engaging, and wildly FUN program, Ding Happens! I believe Avish was our most highly rated speaker ever, and his message about change management was as informative and memorable as it was entertaining! THANK YOU, Avish! I look forward to partnering with you again in the future!”

Avish is just fantastic – one of those rare finds that delivers beyond expectations and that you’ll congratulate yourself for hiring! As a speaker, he is funny, smart, quick on his feet yet very accessible. He’ll relay the right message to your audience, and deliver it in a way that participants will be able to receive and accept it. If you think you have a tough crowd, you’ll be amazed at how masterfully he handles comments from the Peanut gallery!
