Throughout the year most businesses will host a corporate event; a conference or a party, sometimes as a celebration of the achievements of the year or to reconfirm or introduce a vision for the future. A corporate event also can be aimed at and having employees ( or sometimes their customers ) connect, reflect and build relationships, rapport and friendships within the company and these events are also very useful to motivate and educate. It can be challenging for conference and event organisers to find a way to differentiate the event and make it also entertaining, inspirational and most importantly memorable.
One of the most exciting, versatile and dynamic forms of entertainment available to any corporate function is a magic show that is tailored to the company, the theme or the event. A professional and engaging magic show at any corporate event makes it intriguing, engaging, fun and ultimately, highly memorable. Because of this, hiring a skilled professional magician for a corporate event is a popular choice and makes for a memorable alternative as a keynote speaker.
For almost 20 years I have been employed by businesses and corporations to tailor a presentation or create magic to suit a product, trade show, a themed event, branding or a message, either as a set keynote speech presentation or as a feature performance. These engagements have always been mutually rewarding partnerships for the company and myself, allowing for a unique and highly memorable delivery of a message or product.
Invariably, the elements that are achieved by incorporating magic into a presentation are :
A Unique Point Of Difference: A magic performance is a highly promotable and uniquely marketable draw card for the event and furthermore, a post performance and post function talking point.
Interest, Intrigue and Attention : If you want those attending the conference or function to be talking about the function and focussed on the ideas and messages, then having something entirely unique tied to that message with a memorable magic hook is incredibly powerful!
Memorable Moments, Images, Messages. It has been proven that linking ideas, messages or concepts to a physical and visceral interaction or event, greatly and positively affect the cognition, understanding and retention of ideas, concepts and information being presented. This is even more so if it is fun, direct and engaging! The wisdom of the ancient Chinese proverb is here perhaps especially appropriate: “Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.”
Generation of Enthusiasm, Excitement Fun and Humour. By creating a unique presentation which involves many aspects of theatre and entertainment, humour and fun, a magic performance can generate excitement and enthusiasm which can have an immeasurable flow on effect within the corporate event and beyond. A keynote speaker or presentation which involves engagement with the audience, which involves audience interaction and constant attention and also holds out the prospect of any individual being an integral part of the event or even one of it’s highlights, is exciting and fun and again creates a unique point of difference and a charm that is unlike any other form of entertainment.
If you want to make your next corporate event, big or small, into an exceptional and memorable event, you need to seriously consider hiring a professional and experienced corporate magician to create and deliver the unforgettable experience that magic and illusion can bring.
As one of the greatest thinkers of all time said :
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed.”
- Albert Einstein
