Wayne Pearce Australian football legend, TV presenter and now high end corporate motivational coach, took me out to lunch to discuss all things magic. I met Wayne whilst performing at a surprise birthday party for corporate speaking Icon, Ian Elliot. It was a lavish birthday party complete with helicopter arrival of 4 special ops solders from the US (mates of Ian) who ended up floating in the show later on ! Wayne struck up a passionate conversation about misdirection, attention and how the techniques of a magician can be employed or harnessed to demonstrate how people can be motivated and create focus. We followed his secret interest in magic over lunch and cards.
The old saying a magician never tells, is the greatest lie a magician ever told ! I love sharing arcane knowledge of the magician with passionate people. Don’t tell the magic mafia, they’ll break my legs just like Job in Arrested Development 😉
