Motivation Magic background

I have been a magician and entertainer for over 20 years providing entertainment in situations varying from individual face to face performances through to commanding audience sizes of hundreds of people. Magic lets people relax and enjoy the possibility that there is something special if you know where to look for it!

My clients include Zurich/Eagle Star, Debenhams, GE Aviation (formerly Smiths Group), Bookham Technology, Pfizer, Bloomberg Bank, Ericsson, Lloyds TSB, British Coatings Federation, building societies, Powergen, Corus Hotels, RAF, USAF, M&S, Tesco, Sainsbury, education providers including Cheltenham Ladies College, Bristol and Oxford universities, charities, local authorities and commercial trading organisations.

I have entertained people in various UK locations as well as in France, the Channel Islands, Belgium, Italy, Egypt, Turkey South Africa, Latvia and Estonia. I am able to “work an audience” to give impact to presentations or entertainment programmes and have Royal Schools of Music Final Grade qualification in Speech & Drama and even a Masterclass Certificate from Paul Daniels!

I am a member of Toastmasters International - which is an excellent source of learning and advice on giving presentations.

As well as using magic promotionally in sales settings and at banqueting events, I have used it to bring life and impact to business topic presentations in close up and stand up formats. A definite alternative to Powerpoint!

For several years I worked as Business Support Manager with The Prince’s Trust supporting young people, who are funded by The Trust, in starting and surviving in their own business. I did this by managing some 150 volunteer Business Mentors who take on individual clients or act as specialist adviser to several. I have organised mentor skills training events and training for their clients in business related topics such as sales, marketing, accounting, presentation making, media relations, taxation, multimedia and internet trading.

I have also provided business counselling and organised business exhibitions for the young entrepreneurs.

Prior to this I worked in the recruitment field in commercial and public sector operations specialising in areas such as executive recruitment, career planning, job search programmes and marketing employers for vacancies and recruitment assignments. I have had extensive representational experience, organising promotional events, media interviews, networking extensively with various agencies and sectors to achieve joint working and new initiatives. I have organised training events for staff and public and recommended a programme of management training for managers of the Latvian State Employment Service. I have managed staff, contracts and budgets as well as operating in personal performance roles.

I have been involved with the Chartered Management Institute for some 15 years. This has involved taking part in arranging a programme of events for members of the Institute, networking and representing the CMI to develop wider awareness of the institute among training and education bodies, local businesses and managers.

I was Branch Chairman 2001-2003 responsible for strategic planning, programme development and budget. One of our achievements has been the joint working between the CMI and the Chartered Institute of Marketing, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, higher and further education providers, Enterprise Network and Business Link in producing events such as university conferences for professionals

I am a member of the board for Cooperative Futures, which enables enterprise for co-operatives and communities by providing advice and support to achieve successful trading.
