CORPORATE SHOWS



"Our customers are still telephoning us to let us know what a 'blast' they had at our corporate party. Tim Pedersen, our president, said he has received phone calls from people specifically mentioning the magician. You were wonderful and we are looking forward to our next corporate event where we can call upon you again to perform your roaming magic show."

Jeanette M. Meyer, Office Manager
Travis-Pedersen and Assoc., Inc.



"Appearing before 150 of our top management people in the North American region of our company. After dinner, you gave a wonderful performance under a tight timeline, inspiring the entire crowd while at the same time captivating them with sleight-of-hand and illusions. You entertained while educating! It was terrific!"

Anixter International



"Our small group of Chicago area trainers along with our senior instructors and some of our top managers thoroughly enjoyed your corporate performance.

As you know I have always tried to bring unique surprises to my corporate training sessions and you may have surpassed them all.

By placing your name on the agenda and the way you carried yourself when first arriving, everyone thought you were just another corporate staff member ready to address the group.

You shocked them all with your magic and your overall performance, both at the meeting and at dinner, you will be long remember by our team here at Smurfit-Stone."

"On behalf of our client, House of Doolittle, we would like to express our appreciation for your stellar performance at their National Office Products Association trade show booth.

Naturally, when we planned their Sales Magic booth and promotion, we had hopes of attracting booth traffic and attendance to see their new line of products with your magic and illusions. The actual results were exciting, astonishing and far beyond our expectations.

Your ability to attract a large audience with almost a continuous performance, work in the client's products and rebate promotion with tricks and comic dialogue did a masterful selling job for us. This was the most successful exhibit in Doolittle's history with record number of dealers registered."

Robert G. Wagener, President

"I want to thank you personally for the way you went to work on the project so quickly, picked up the nuances of the message and translated that into magic tricks that helped our speakers convey their message so convincingly."

"Your professionalism really came through! With little more than our ideas to work with in some cases, you were able to blend our themes into your work in a most entertaining way. We especially liked the audience participation effect."

"Audience participation is a mild term for the way you had everyone either on stage or feeling as though they were. You have a real knack for making everyone feel as though they are a part of your act."
