dewayne hill   Comedy Magician Dewayne Hill

Comedy Magician Dewayne Hill started performing magic at the age of 16. Six months after practicing and performing in the streets of Charleston, WV (his hometown), he started receiving show offers from area churches and local fundraisers.

After performing two professional shows, he received the attention of a local TV show producer and was asked to be a guest on the show to perform. Two weeks after taping the live show, it finally aired on the local TV stations and had a prime time run for 8 nights in a row. This attracted news reporters from all over the region. After several articles and news clips hit the press Dewayne started performing in a local comedy club. It was here where he perfected the art of joking and storytelling while performing amazing magic tricks.  You won't want to miss this show!

In her presentation, Zap the Gap: How to Make Peace & Work Effectively in a Multigenerational World, she explains how each generation developed its values and how these values creep into the workplace and marketplace. Each generation holds fast to its values, so it's important to understand and respect them to bring out the best in everyone.
