Benji Bruce is a full time Corporate Entertainer for companies like RE/MAX, HILTON, Intel, Charles Schwab, ASAE, and more.

Best of all, this information is not "dated material" or "re-hashed" theories that have been printed time after time. Be warned, this is not a book on restaurant magic; but a book on business.
