All I can say about Jason Michaels TEDx talk is “WOW”. He was by far one of the most interesting TEDx speakers I have ever gotten the chance to listen to. He draws you in with the most interesting stories and magic tricks.... and then blows your mind when he talks about his personal story. Definitely looking forward to having the chance to hear him speak again.
