We were delighted to be invited back to perform at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, Los Angeles earlier this year.
Performing at the Magic Castle is one of the Highlights in any magician’s career and it’s an honour to have been invited back for a run of 17 shows where we entertained celebrities, VIP’s, and invited guests. As if that wasn’t enough we followed that up by headlining in a show in Las Vegas the following week. Read more about our magical experience in the USA and have a look at some pictures.
Have you heard the one about the unhappy worker who was too stressed to come into work?

Most of us who deliver presentations on a regular basis are familiar with the theory of how to give captivating talks. Be dynamic, articulate, engaging. Relate to the audience, use examples and interactivity. The buzz words are as old as the hills. Putting such advice into practice however, is another matter altogether when you’re standing on the stage.
Team Development has long been recognised as a vital component of a successful organisation. Business people the world over talk about working as a team, building the team, feeling part of a team, but a surprisingly small proportion really understand how to create the experience of team work, or how to develop an effective team.
We managed to get a nice piece of coverage in the press earlier this week.
