When we began planning our 2013 Snap Fitness International Convention, we were faced with the challenge of finding a speaker who could engage our group right off the bat, and help raise the energy level for the event as a whole.
During past conventions, our group has proven to be somewhat quiet and reserved at the beginning of the event and we knew we needed a speaker who was high-energy, entertaining and able to bring the group out of their shell. We couldn’t have asked for a better choice than Tim Gabrielson.
Tim is such a talented performer, and has an ability to connect with his audience like no other speaker we’ve ever had. His combination of comedy, magic and positive message had our group laughing and listening from the second he hit the stage. For the rest of the event, you could hear our attendees talking about how great his performance was, and how it set the tone for a tremendously successful week.
I would recommend Tim for groups of any size or background, as he does a great job of understanding your needs for the event. He is truly the best speaker we’ve ever had, and I would love to have him back for another of our conventions in the future.

Tim Gabrielson performed at our Fall Homecoming and entertained our faculty, staff, students, student’s families and alumni – which can be a tall order. His family friendly show was both smart and hilarious from start to finish. Tim is a professional entertainer who is a pleasure to work with. We will have him back on our campus.

Thank you for adding the special touch of humor to the end of our Annual Conference. Most meeting planners will tell you, the objective is to open with a speaker to set the tone of the meeting and to close with entertainment that will make the entire meeting memorable. As our closing entertainer, you did exactly what we were looking and hoping for.
As a part time meeting planner and full time employee of United Planners, it is never easy choosing the entertainment for the final night awards dinner. However, your website and the conversation I had with you prior to the event took the hesitation away. I can’t begin to tell you how refreshing it was to find talent, such as yours, that’s clean and funny. You can usually find one of those elements, but not both at the same time. You made those of us, who made the decision to book you, look brilliant!
Again, thank you for leaving us laughing, Your talent and humor will not be forgotten.
My sincerest thank you…

“Bush Brothers & Company hired Tim Gabrielson ‘Keep it Funny’ to entertain at our recent 50th anniversary celebration. I was nervous because I wanted everyone to have a great time and end the evening on a fun note. Tim’s performance went above and beyond my expectations. He was so talented with his magic and comedy. The crowd was engaged and the room exploded with laughter and awe. He went out into the crowd and had several people participate in the show. Ever since, folks have been talking about how much they enjoyed his performance. I would highly recommend Tim for any event. I know you will Not regret it!”

“As the person responsible for putting together a memorable,exciting program or event, the last thing you need is to hire someone and then hold your breath hoping he’s not a flop. Well, if you hire Tim, I can tell you this–you won’t be able to breath, but it will be because one minute you are laughing so hard your cheeks hurt, and the next, his magic has completely taken your breath away. Tim has a quick wit, impeccable comedic timing, and an ability to draw in the crowd quickly. Take it from someone who has hired Tim countless times over the past 12 years (every chance I get) at a wide variety of venues and for various types of events, this is the entertainer no audience should miss the chance to see! The quality is consistent, and he is great to work with in planning your event. I can’t recommend Tim highly enough if you want to rest easy and be confident in your choice for entertainment. I just hired him again for an event this Summer–I could use a good laugh, so I’m excited!”

“Are you looking for someone who know exactly what you are looking for in a keynote speaker? Tim Gabrielson was exactly that person for South Dakota FBLA! Tim has a brilliance about him that is impeccable…he not only gets the students’ attention but he KEEPS it! Tim kept the students laughing and helped them to realize the importance choosing to be happy and working towards a bright and successful future. Tim understands students and their individual needs. He was great to work with and exceptional at follow up when setting up his speaking engagements. SD FBLA has had him serve as the keynote speaker with a following workshop where students lined up to get in the door. Tim is truly one of the best.
