 Aitken Leadership Group

"Justin performed for a group of 250 virtual attendees from all over the United States at the remote annual shareholder retreat for GeoEngineers. It was a pleasure to work with Justin. He took the time to fully understand the theme of the event and the outcomes we were trying to attain. His Zoom performances throughout the day were truly magical, immersive and awe-inspiring. Participants walked away better connected, with a twinkle in their eye and the organizational message coursing through their veins. Justin is professional, creative and adaptable and we can’t wait to work with him again."
