The Beginning

In 2004 Dynamic Influence was founded and began its mission to engage and educate.  Founder and nationally recognized speaker Robert Hackenson Jr. started Dynamic Influence with belief that attention spans are shrinking and if audiences are bored, the important message will be lost. Robert saw a unique opportunity to infuse educational lectures and trainings with his dynamic skills as a magician, certified hypnotist, and master of influence.  Over the years Robert has developed presentations and trainings on a number of topics, and has an exceptional ability to tailor the material, presentation style, and forms of entertainment to his audience.
