Brian Miller is a corporate keynote speaker, youth motivational speaker, and magician. His TEDx talk “How to Magically Connect With Anyone” has inspired  more than 2 million people worldwide to make better connections with the people in their lives: in our increasingly distracted world, we are becoming more disconnected than ever before, and this is taking a toll on our personal and professional relationships. Brian helps people learn to understand perspectives other than their own. This skill leads to more meaningful connections with other people. It is one of the most popular TEDx talks of all time.


Brian graduated from college with degrees in mathematics and philosophy before turning down the offer of a PhD place in order to pursue his dream of being a professional magician. He has since shared his magic and his message with thousands of audiences in more than 30 US states and on four continents. Brian first built his reputation as a college-campus entertainer, earning two nominations for “America’s best campus artist” by Campus Activities Magazine; as his career progressed, he began accepting invitations to entertain at corporate functions and high-end private events.


A passionate guitarist and singer, Brian spends his rare free time writing and recording original rock and pop music. He lives in Vernon, CT, USA, with his wife Lindsey.
