Flying out and performing at Corporate Events in Europe are always a highlight on my calendar. To be able to meet and interact with people from all over the globe whilst earning a living is one of the most fortunate feelings a professional entertainer can have. This feeling was no different when I recently flew out to perform as a Mind Reader in Barcelona the Alight Solutions technology conference.
I had been hired by the team to provide my Mix & Mingle Entertainment for guests during the drinks reception. This is a popular option amongst these types of corporate events. It’s a very relaxed and informal type of performance, that is flexible in how it can be implemented into an event. Typically I would perform at these sorts of events for 2 hours in total. However for this particular conference there was a particularly large number of delegates. The party was on the rooftop of the Purobeach Venue in the Hilton, Barcelona. As a result I mingled for over 3 hours in the relaxed and ambient settings with deep House music being played by the DJ.
The rooftop venue was spectacular. the views were fantastic and certainly enhanced the atmosphere of the night. It wasn’t the first time I had been hired to perform in Spain. previously I had entertained at the beautiful La Manga Club resort for Intrinsic.

Mind reading and magic tricks at corporate meetings and events?
The idea of a magician for hire isn’t new. In fact, magicians have been wowing and enticing the world for over 5,000 years. Anyone and everyone finds some level of fascination with magic. Adding mind-reading to the magical mix, and all eyes and ears are piqued.
Here are a few reasons to consider hiring a corporate magician to awe your guests, clients, and employees.
1. Grab Attention
Someone making balloon animals and doing card tricks is cute. But how about someone who’s perfectly honed skills as a magician and a mind-reader?
Corporate events have a stigma of being dry and sometimes uncomfortable. Not everyone knows each other. Pair that with the feeling of the event being work-related or mandatory, and this can make guests feel uptight.
Add a magician to an event, and you’ll instantly grab everyone’s attention.
2. Get Them Talking
Did you hear about the guy reading minds?
If that kind of phrase becomes the buzz at an event, people will want to stay longer. They’ll want to learn more. They’ll want to have their minds read.
Adding some magic to any evening can be the best icebreaker. People will want to talk about what they witnessed. They’ll want to compare their experiences.
Allow for a little bit of magic to create a collaborative experience for guests, one they’ll be excited to talk about, even after the event’s over.
3. Make It Memorable
Anyone can sit and listen to a band or an act.
What happens, though, when a corporate magician mingles around an event? One stop to wow a small group turns into another stop that draws a larger group.
No one is sitting, waiting for the event to finish. People are gravitating towards the entertainment. Your guests want to be part of a magical experience; almost everyone loves magic.
4. Inspire the Group
Magic is universal; it has the ability to inspire.
Seeing something who doesn’t make sense to the mind is intriguing. The saying seeing is believing can become a group experience that draws people together, regardless of title or status within a company.
Hiring a magician is an easy way to bridge the divide between guests.
5. Leave Them Wanting More
Corporate magicians don’t just perform fun tricks of the mind.
One of the most alluring traits of a corporate magician is easily involving the crowd. Guests become the focal point of the tricks, which provides a personal and exciting experience.
Consider letting guests challenge the mind-reader as a way to develop company culture and morale.
Let Your Mind Wander With a Corporate Magician
Hiring a corporate magician for an event can add value, excitement, and awe in just a few short hours.
Your clients, employees, and guests will appreciate the endless opportunities for fun and camaraderie. Give them an experience that won’t quickly be forgotten.

So, when it comes to making your event memorable, everything from food, drink and location can have a huge impact. But what about entertainment?
Having performed at countless corporate events for companies including BBC Radio Nottingham, John Deere Group, Price Waterhouse Cooper, Nottingham University and Centre Parcs, I know first-hand the positive impact the right act can have. The right corporate entertainment act can promote interaction and boost networking amongst attendees through a shared experience. It can help employees switch off from work and relax.
Here are a few of the best types of act I have had the pleasure to work alongside in my years as a corporate event entertainer.
Typically, this sort of entertainment is better for smaller and more intimate corporate events. Caricaturists serve as a great ice breaker and guests can share the laughs or cringe-worthy moments while gathered around the artists. That said, the event could be transferred to a screen for a wider-reaching effect.
Not too dissimilar to the caricaturist, a silhouette artist adds an element of fascination for the attendees and another way to establish bonds between guests and promote networking as people discuss the act and laugh together, which is a fantastic way to reduce stress. There is even scope for your corporate theme to be included in the act to promote your business and what is more, guests get to take away a keepsake.
Singers and Musicians
Singers and musicians are always ideal whether your event is corporate, a wedding or a private party and are often the go-to for events entertainment. With such a wide range of music styles from groups, soloists or tribute acts, nothing beats a bit of music to get everyone dancing. And while you cannot please all of the people all of the time in terms of the genre you choose, music can never fail to boost morale and bring smiles across the board.
Champagne Dress Hostess
Queuing at the bar can be a little dull, even at the most exciting of events. But now imagine queuing to take your glass of prosecco from an entire dress made of them. It’s a talking point for certain and a great way to treat clients and employees alike.
This sort of corporate magician is a great act to entertain larger audiences during or after sit down meals but also has the added bonus of audience participation. Laughter and wonderment will mean your event is talked about for months if not years to come.
Mind Reader and Mentalist
Of course I couldn’t go without mentioning what I do as a corporate event entertainer. With packages for trade shows, exhibitions, award shows or even the Christmas party, my mind-bending performances will leave guests amazed as I manipulate minds, make predictions and even get guests to read the minds of other attendees. There are numerous benefits to hiring a mentalist for a corporate event whether you have 10 guests or 1,000. My flexible and bespoke packages mean I can more often than not meet every professional requirement you have for your event.
