I spend a lot of time speaking with prospective clients from all sorts of industries. The vast majority are looking for information about my professional services, and how they can enhance their corporate events. Most clients understand that my services are entertainment based and designed to be performed at events such as conferences and parties. I perform as a Corporate Mind Reader, but just what does that term actually mean?
The word ‘Mind Reader’ is quite scary in itself. It suggests something thats intrusive and unsettling. The term ‘Corporate Mind Reader’ sounds even worse! Rest assured, it isn’t some form of corporate mole that infiltrates departments and reads the minds of under performing staff! It is simply a term to describe an entertainer that specialises in performing ‘Mentalism‘ at corporate events. Phew!
But isn’t it all just Magic Tricks?
A Corporate Mind Reader is someone that has studied, and subsequently become an expert in the performance art of ‘Mentalism’. Historically its roots are linked to the magic industry but the techniques and subtleties are worlds apart. Whereas a traditional magician might rely on ‘sleight of hand’ to accomplish their tricks, a Mentalist or Mind Reader will utilise an understanding of Psychology, Suggestion and ‘Sleight of Mind’ to achieve the desired effect of mind reading.
I am certainly not a traditional magician, although I have learnt a range of misdirection skills and fused them with psychological techniques. At times I utilise little known and somewhat underground principles to convince my corporate audiences that I am a mind reader. However, it’s entertainment and not anything psychic or paranormal.
Corporate Mind Reader Acts
If you are looking for corporate event entertainment in the near future, you may wish to hire a mind reader or mentalist. There are plenty of opportunities to use their unique skills in a huge array of different events & scenarios. Allow me to tell you about the different types of performances and services that a corporate mind reader can offer.
After Dinner Performances / Stage Show
The vast majority of corporate events will require one of two forms of services. Speaking from experience, the most popular booking is a stage show. This is typically performed after dinner, on stage at your annual or national conference. These types of shows will be performed at larger events through a professional PA system and will involved large amounts of audience participation and interaction.
Mix & Mingle Entertainment
The second most popular type of performance is the traditional mix & mingle style of entertainment. This has long been popular with drinks receptions at corporate parties etc. Your mind reader will walk around the event engaging with guests and perform up close. This is the ideal icebreaker for events such as Awards Evenings and the annual Christmas Party, where guests are socialising and enjoying a drink.
Can your Skills Boost our Sales?
Yes! If your company is exhibiting at a Trade show or Exhibition, then you might be interested in utilising my Trade-Show Entertainment. Companies hire me to represent them on their booth and perform for guests as they walk by. The goal however is not purely entertainment! It is to stop traffic at the show and divert them onto your companies stand. This is designed to increase awareness of your brand & products, which generates more sales and profits.
There are many benefits to this type of professional service, check out this article to find out the 5 reasons to hire a Trade-Show Magician.
Corporate Training & Professional Services
Over the many years of presenting at corporate events in the UK & EU, many people have asked me if I offer corporate training. Many of the skills of a Mind Reader / Mentalist are desirable within the business world. Over the years I have presented a range of training workshops that are hands on and interactive. I teach specific skills such as:
- Building & Enhancing Rapport with both colleagues and clients.
- Learning to better read Body Language and be aware of social signals.
- The Power of Influence
- Enhancing your Memory.
These techniques, when applied within your business are guaranteed to maximise your employees potential. Think of it as fine tuning colleagues to be better aware of specific workplace scenarios. They will learn to be aware of how they communicate to your clients and learning how to better read specific situations. They will also learn how scenarios can be psychologically directed to benefit your business.

More recently I have been involved in helping facilitate the delivery of a range of corporate wellbeing days. Clients can build and create their own specific day that is tailor made for their business. for more information please get in touch and I can put you in touch with the specialist company that I have been working with.
