“I booked Wayne because I had seen him keep a whole resturant entertained during the busy school holiday periods. If 1 person can keep that many children interested in something for more than 2 hours, i was definately booking him! Adults loved him, my family certainly did. His tricks where very current and kept me guessing all day! He has a very good sense of humour too, i think that really helps towards the whole act.”
“Have seen his magic before, knew how good he was and thought it would be somthing different to keep our guests entertained during the lull between afternoon and evening receptions. Very prompt response to our booking enquiry, good price & extremely flexible/accommodating with regards to slotting in with our reception timings.”
“brilliant magic, very approachable, friendly and makes you feel at ease and all round top bloke!!10/10”
“He impressed us with our initial meeting and we booked him in the spot!”
“He impressed my dad so much at a wedding fayre and he came highly recommended through friends. He was value for money and we knew he would keep our guests highly entertained.”
“We needed someone/something to fill the gap between the wedding dinner and the disco, Wayne was referred to me by a close friend, one of the best decisions we made.”
“Extremely good value for money; offered flexible timing for the day, brilliant rapport via telephone calls and we were both very impressed with online video demonstrations. Furthermore, he was not pushy for a confirmed booking and allowed time for consideration. All of this supported by recommendations.”
“Because we wanted something different to keep our guests entertained!”
“We wanted something to give our wedding an edge somethig that people would remember as soon as we met Wayne we knew he was exactly what we had been looking for.”
“To add an element of individuality to our wedding and to surprise and entertain our guests. Mission accomplished with Wayne’s help. He is brilliant!”

“Highly recomended … would be only too willing to hire hime anytime!”
“Couldn’t ask for better entertainment at our reception. Had a wide range of age groups and all were thoroughly entertained (everybody commented how amazing he was). Very professional, personable & fantastic magic. Would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a magician. Great value for money.”
“Wayne is a fantastic entertainer and he was without doubt the best value for money we spent on our entire day. Our guests thought he was fantastic and he was so easy to deal with and is clearly very passionate about what he does. My dad is a huge fan… Thank you Wayne!”
“Wayne was absolutely Brillaint. His services was so personal. Absolutly everybody loved his performance. The children were in awe of him the whole evening. It was a wonderful ice breaker for people that didnt know each other. He was punctual, smart, very very funny and just an all round great guy.”
“Wayne was excellent at keeping our guests entertained after dinner! Everyone has said how fantastic he was and that it was one of the highlights of the day. Not cheesy and predictable like many wedding entertainers. And, amused both the children and the adults! Perfect!”
“Really couldnt fault Wayne at our wedding on Sunday 26th August, everybody was amazed by him, he kept everyone entertained cant thank him enough would definitly reccommend to others!”
“Wayne was excellent. He rotated around our wedding party throughout the reception, everyone loved it. He also spent time going around the tables during the wedding breakfast, not at all intrusive. For those that were on tables where they didn’t know everyone, it gave them something to talk about.”
“We were blown away with Wayne from the first time we met him, on our wedding day he managed to keep all of our guests entertained his tricks were brilliant but also he is a really funny guy and everyone couldn’t stop talking about him. I will always recommend Wayne he is fantastic entertainer.”
“Wayne took ours and our guests breath away with his close up magic. He was brilliant and also very funny!”

“Wayne was an outstanding all round package incorporating mind blowing magic and extremely well timed and suitable sense of humour. His rapport with the audience resulted in only the very best feedback from our guests and even accommodated for the Bride’s Nanna, who is visually impaired.”
“Wayne did a fantastic job of keeping all of our guests happy and entertained Wayne created an amazing atmosphere and all or our guests are still talking about how funny he was and how great his tricks were, I cannot recommend Wayne highly enough we are both very happy with the service Wayne provided”
“I knew I wanted Wayne for our wedding within about 30 seconds of meeting him. A true professional, Wayne is very talented, professional and frankly, hilarious. Our guests absolutely loved him and I’m just disappointed I don’t get to have another wedding so I can book him again!!!”
“Wayne was the consummate professional. He arrived early,performed for 2 hours and then remained at the venue for at least another 2 hours performing close to magic tricks for whom ever. He appealed to all age groups 3 years – 80 years! He held a captive audience & was extremely good value for money!”
Many thanks for Saturday night, you were brill! I have had many comments saying how good you were and what a nice fella.
But what good does this do for the company as a whole?
I once heard that a good motivational speaker is like doing drugs, you get boosted up and excited and then you come back down to earth with a bump.
A leopard won’t change his spots and a lazy worker is still going to be a lazy worker after his 5 minute motivation high.
I believe that the way forward is not to motivate to work but to motivate to achieve. You need to change the mindset of the individual to get the maximum from the team.
You are going to hear that word a lot in this, ACHIEVE . It’s the centre piece to the whole Shazzam. Everything I do is aimed at achieving something, a goal, a result, a job or a new effect for my show. Even now I am hoping to achieve something with this very presentation.
Any team building activity that allows the individual to accomplish something for and by themselves means that the high lasts longer.
The more they achieve the more they see the benefits of working towards a goal or
The Paint ball Game.
This is a very popular activity with companies for team building, but I feel for all the wrong reasons.
Everyone remembers when they got shot, how much it hurt and how good it felt to shoot the annoying guy or the boss. But does this motivate a team, does it allow each team member a chance to shine, to achieve, or does it allow the alpha members of the team to take charge and tell them what to do.
Be honest on your last paint ball team activity who allowed “Doris” the office cleaner to lead the confrontation to take the fortress, it was “Jim” the Alpha dog who led it and won because in these things he always wins.
A good team building day shouldn’t be about winners and losers, sure, a competition edge does give it a go getter feel but you have to remember that when you have a winning team, you also have 1, 2 3 or more losing teams, and if you’re in the losing team on 3 or 4 activities, what does that do to your motivation?
Each team must build a bridge that covers an space between 2 tables, using only the materials provided it must be strong enough to support a specific weight.
This is better because even though the event has both winners and losers, there is the opportunity for more teams to win, maybe they all do it, and maybe none do. Also everyone can laugh along with the attempts at the end of the activity.
But still both these activity’s mean that at the end of the day you receive a superficial high that is forgotten as soon as it is received.
What about giving the gift that keeps on giving?
Everyone knows that a good trick will fool, baffle and entertain the person or people watching it.
Now put it into the hands of an underachiever, let them learn the magic trick, to possess in their hands the ability to do something only they can do, and then allow them to share this prize with the rest of the team, without divulging the secret.
This scenario allows the person to achieve something tangible, something they can share but still contain, and something they can take beyond the workplace, to impress their friends and family. In other words to give them something that continues to motivate the more they use it.
By focusing on individuals and allowing them to grow, you motivate them to achieve for themselves, they see the worth in doing something right and the praise of the rest of the team when they present it.
The result is longer lasting and more visible than a bus load of people on a bus covered in bruises and remembering that they have to be back in the office at 8.30 the following morning.
Learning magic tricks inspires and builds confidence, they are being led behind a mystic curtain to a world of the strange that few get to see.
They achieve skills that can be developed beyond the motivation day, they can do the tricks for their families or down the pub, and they continue to amplify the skills to others, sometimes indefinitely.
Now move this into the office, rather than the alpha team members taking charge and taking credit you allow the team as a whole to take charge and to take credit, team members feel the glow of success for themselves as well as for the team. This has to be good for everyone.
