Loyal, WI FFA

T. H. is a junior and throughout the year his quiz scores in Algebra II at best have been B -. About an hour after being hypnotized, he took a difficult quiz that he was the only one of 2 students whom received a perfect score (the other always gets perfect scores) It was not an easy quiz and that was his first perfect score. I asked him about it and at times he stared at questions but the answer would eventually pop in his mind. Basically he could focus and find the answers better for the one quiz.

Lynn mork, assistant principal

Berlin High School

I would recommend Jim Wand’s program and also recommend to be a participant.

Jim Wand and Wand Enterprises were easy to work with and put on a great show. The preparation ahead of time was straightforward, simple, and covered all of the details needed. Jim’s assistant Billy was always quick to respond and helpful whenever I had questions.

The day of the event, Jim arrived promptly, worked directly with the location’s AV staff, and was very pleasant and easy to work with. Even though I wasn’t interested in participating in the show, it was nice to chat ahead of time to learn more about hypnosis, how it works, and the benefits, It seemed like Jim knew exactly what he was talking about and has lots of different experience in the field.
