I have had the pleasure of working corporate events as a magician since I was 15 years old. It is an awesome job and responsibility… corporate audiences expect more for their dollars and image.
Working as a corporate magician allows me opportunities to both entertain and promote companies around the country. I suspect most of you have seen or your company has used a corporate magician at the annual banquet, enhance the holiday office party, or adding some lively fun during a summer outing.
However, promoting a company event via magic illusions may currently not be the #1 solution, but I am working on changing that in corporate America. Anyone who attends or exhibits at tradeshows; locally, regionally, or nationally has experienced that attracting potential clients to their company booth may be the #1 challenge! I love introducing companies via magic illusions and entertainment. Recently in New York at LegalTech I have been doeLegal’s solution to attracting, engaging, and transforming into warm prospects for the sales team!
Grand Openings allow a corporate magician to customise some illusions to either their industry (supermarkets, banks, restaurants, etc…) or the promotional products that need to be given to customers. Last summer while working a mini golf/genral store Grand Opening… they had chip clips that they wanted me to incorporate into the performances; I create an illusion where their chip clip not only isolate the magic but with their logo on the clip I used that as the magic words:)
Product Promotions might be on a national level like when I participated with Nabisco’s ‘Unlock the Magic’ promotion. Going to supermarkets all over Maine, NH, and MA working magic with oreo cookies. And another one I was working with IHF (International Home Foods… Poland Fruits, Jiffy Popcorn, Chef Boyardee in supermarkets as well. More products created more choices and more challenges; where to carry illusions to work into the performances for several of these products. On a local level many years ago (I’ve dating myself) I worked in a Mall for Jordan Marsh at the Lancome aisle working illusions with lipstick, perfume, etc…)
So as you may have noticed there is a large variety of events to keep a corporate magician on their toes, keep our creative juices flowing, and make a living following our dream! Here’s a fun preview:
