Why Masterclass? Using magic as a route to success
The skills and techniques used in magic can teach you how to engage with an audience, encourage participation with a crowd or individual, and how to communicate effectively.
The real magic is not necessarily in the trick itself but in the clarity, engagement and rapport with your audience.
These are some of the benefits businesses and individuals will experience by working together with Paul in Masterclasses:
- Learning to speak with confidence and to articulate your ideas.
- Be comfortable selling or speaking to clients.
- Thinking creatively about problems.
- Becoming aware of body language, peripheral vision, timing and misdirection.
- Learn to fully engage with an audience.
- Transfer creative skills to business problems and needs.
- Reinvigorate the energy and outlook in the workplace.
Bespoke creative thinking, magic and business development A Case Study
Every business has their own needs and it is important that Paul can work with your company to create something original and tailor-made. One such example is when Paul was hired by CrownBC, a brand and communications development company for Travelport, a leading online booking system for the travel industry.
The event Paul and CrownBC developed was called "MOJO". This event was designed to reinvigorate the company and to work to inspire their sales teams internationally. This was comprised of a dozen events in two different countries each week.
Paul looked at what the vision of the company was moving forward and how best to communicate these ideas when dealing with a mixture of cultures who worked in sales and management teams across Europe. A bespoke magic and mind reading show was developed for them incorporating these themes. This allowed a place for teams to work directly with Paul, creatively using magic as the connection to their business.
Paul performed a mixture of magic and mind reading cabaret shows, followed by teaching some magic techniques which were then related back to their business. The final segment was the memory technique demonstration which ended with a manager or head of department being able to utilise the system, developed specifically for their company, to subconsciously memorise all the key words in their company mission statement.
As an extra effort to integrate the theme of MOJO into the event, branded playing cards and coins were produced as a giveaway for the groups.
This had been very inclusive. It's worked in different ways for different audiences in different countries. Undoubtably there has been extreme positive feedback every time.
Promoting engagement and getting people up on stage has really tied in very well with our theme which was Mojo, building self belief. Everyone really loves magic and really enjoyed the format. It's got everyone up off their feet. It's clear that the audiences in different markets really love the fresh approach to team building.
We wanted to do something a little bit different, which is what we achieved with Paul. Something that could carry through the business theme while having a lot of fun at the same time.Adrian Bastow EMEIA Marketing Director at Travelport
