Corporate “Magic” Services:
“Tricks of the Trade”
Interactive Team Building Workshop
It is not all just smoke and mirrors. The skill set necessary to effectively perform a magic trick closely resembles that required to successfully communicate in the business world.
Corporate magician Anthony Lindan has developed a fun, interactive and experiential approach to learn about the creativity, communication, problem-solving and presentation skills required to perform magic and entertain an audience.
Drawing on over twenty years of experience, Anthony Lindan reveals the REAL secrets about performing and connecting with an audience.
“In magic, as in real life, the key to success is not the trick itself but how it is performed.”
1. Participants break into groups and each group learns a different magic trick
• How the trick works – the mechanics
• Why the trick works – applied psychology
• How to perform the trick – presentation skills
• Each group develops a presentation relevant to their company or industry
2. Mini – Magic Show
• Participants for each group perform the trick in front of the whole audience
• Anthony Lindan serves as MC for the participant’s magic show and provides insights into each performance.
• Anthony Lindan examines the experience of working together to learn, process and present new information.
Minimum number of participants is 25 and the maximum number of participants is 150.
The workshop runs 1½ hours. With Anthony Lindan’s 30-minute opening stand up magic show the total run time is 2 hours. Anthony Lindan provides all necessary magic props and learning materials.
The feedback we received on the workshop was really great! People really liked the approach and they took away interesting concepts from the event. Anthony also performed some really amazing card tricks during dinner and afterward which dazzled all. I would most certainly say the workshop itself was really worth it: very energetic, lots of participation, and I can now speak from experience that it is not easy to perform a magic trick in front of a crowd believing you will fool them! Please convey my sincere thanks again to Anthony. – Bell Canada – Network Information Solutions
THE POWER OF MAGIC
Over the years, Anthony Lindan has participated in hundreds of trade shows and corporate events throughout North America. He practices his specialized brand of marketing wizardry on behalf of an impressive array of corporate clients who have come to believe in the Power of Magic to:
attract and hold attention at a trade show booth or hospitality suite;
to educate and motivate customers;
motivate staff or a sales team at sales meetings, training events and product launches;
entertain participants at conventions, conferences and corporate events and…
to have a whole lot of fun in the process!
Many occasions call for nothing more complicated than a really good show which is exactly what the Pure Entertainment program offers in two magical versions. Both are lighthearted celebrations of fun and goodwill and each can be customized to carry your corporate message.
Anthony takes care of the pre-performance details and his material is always in good taste so there’s nothing to plan, do or worry about.
Now, we should mention that Anthony Lindan decidedly does not fit the usual stereotype of magician-performer. There are no pesky rabbits, no flighty doves and when it comes to costume, he favors well-tailored business suits (or black tie if the occasion calls for it) over Mandrake-the-Magician capes.
Something of a chameleon, he tends to blend in…until he starts to work. That’s when the fun begins.
PRESENCE OF MIND
Presence of Mind is a 30-40 minute, cabaret style, stage magic show designed for an audience of 25-500 people.
With its focus on audience participation, it’s ideal for banquets, award ceremonies, sales meetings, product launches, conventions and any event where people gather to have a good time!
It’s a fast-moving show and Lindan gets the audience into the act right from the start (pick a card, any card). He turns otherwise perfectly normal people into human slot machines (lots of spinning, silliness and laughter); gets the boss into the act; borrows money, makes it disappear and takes the audience on a complex series of misadventures to get it back.
How does he do that?
Before you know it, it’s time for the grand finale — the hilariously frustrating Houdini-style escape. Houdini was never like this!
Two volunteers securely lock Lindan’s hands behind his back and conceal him as he attempts to escape. In an artfully artless routine worthy of the great silent movie comedians, Lindan wages an impossible battle with his jacket, the shackles, the hapless volunteers holding up the curtain and the audience.
Without giving too much away, we can say that he is ultimately successful, the show is over all too soon and as the event manager responsible for booking entertainment, you’re looking very good indeed.
MAGIC IS AFOOT!
Magic is Afoot! is a form of just-for-fun pure entertainment. Anthony strolls from location to location or table to table involving members of the audience in close-up, sleight-of-hand magic.
Given his chameleon quality, it’s not always easy to pick Lindan out of the crowd but you can track his progress through the room by following the sounds of amazement and laughter.
Magic is Afoot! is an intimate, involving style of show that’s ideal for cocktail receptions, intimate dinner parties, trade shows booths to increase visibility and awareness, awards and incentive events, and corporate hospitality suites.
