How To Make Your Next Corporate Event Unforgettable
Corporate events can get such a bad rap.
It’s all grey suits, small talk, and awkward conversations, right? Somehow, professionalism can get in the way of what you actually want to achieve – an event where the right people connect and leave with positive associations about your business and brand.
So how do you do that?
Without question, the atmosphere of your event is key.
Does the atmosphere inspire connection and conversation?
Or are people sticking to the corners with people they know – unsure what to do with themselves? (You’ve seen it happen!)
That’s where magic corporate entertainment works wonders.
It’s the ultimate icebreaker – there to create a common talking point that builds a buzz and transforms the atmosphere so it’s hyper-productive for your business.
Let me explain how…
With a close-up magician doing his rounds, you can break up those uncomfortable cliques. Instead of awkward silences and strangers avoiding eye contact, magic helps everyone relax. It’s perfect corporate entertainment!
It creates a non-threatening focal point too. Something guests can watch and engage with so they’re not staring at their feet wishing they were someplace else!
But more than that, close-up magic breaks down the barriers that stop strangers chatting.
When you’re in the thick of the same experience, you suddenly have something in common. You can laugh together, share your thoughts about how the trick was done, and move the conversation on from there. It’s the start of a beautiful relationship!
Close-up magic changes the atmosphere too.
With a professional pickpocket (like me) magically taking people’s watches, phones, and jewellery, you can imagine the looks and laughs of shock and surprise.
Actually, they look a little like this…
[Just to confirm, this phone was safely restored to the owner – once he realised it was gone!]
These reactions are contagious and it’s a buzz that quickly spreads.
What’s happening over there?!
Close-up magic is perfect for corporate events. It’s an interactive form of entertainment that will help eliminate those stuffy business vibes.
Close-up magic is perfect for smallish groups where everyone can see and everyone gets a front row seat.
What happens next is also magic!
As the magician does his thing, attendees elsewhere in the room are drawn to the chatter and laughter. They get curious and ask their neighbour if they know what the noise is about.
It all sounds so fun – they want in on the action too. Then boom! Before you know it people are chatting and the awkward silences are gone. (Phew!)
It’s exactly what you want – plenty of quality conversations that could actually lead somewhere.
It’s not unprofessional!
When you strip it all away, people buy from people they know, like, and trust. We’re in a social media age. Businesses have to be more personable and approachable.
It’s amazing what can happen when you get away from the business talk and just have a conversation about life.
About your kids, your partner, your last holiday, where you’re going next – all the usual stuff that friends chat about. When you feel like you know someone better, you can have a more productive conversation. Bet you didn’t know magic could do that too!
Close-up magic is perfect for corporate events and businesses who want a memorable occasion. It’s an interactive form of entertainment that will help eliminate those stuffy vibes and set your business head and shoulders above the competition.
What Corporate Events Suit Magic?
The business sector doesn’t have to be boring!
Dare to be different!
Go on… have a think about how magic could transform your next corporate do:
At an exhibition
Magic is a guaranteed crowd puller that attracts potential customers to your stand.
It offers an easy way to start a conversation (that could go somewhere).
It also kick-starts word of mouth because you can be sure that people will talk to other attendees about the awesome magician over on stand B12.

At a company get-together
Magic breaks the ice between different departments and different levels of management.
It helps to remove the ‘them and us’ barrier that’s common at these things to enhance your culture and build a stronger team all around.
Whether it’s to celebrate:
- A new product
- A milestone year
- The unveiling of a new logo
- A “thank-you” for your workers’ hard endeavours
Great corporate entertainment will help connect the dots and make your business unforgettable!

At a BBQ
Magic provides entertainment while people wait to dig into their burgers and hot dogs.
It’s entertainment that
- Lightens the atmosphere,
- Encourages different groups to socialise
- Helps create a party that could go down in history (for all the right reasons).
Chris was a true professional who provided a class act at our milestone celebration.

At Networking Events
Close-up magic creates a common talking point that makes it easier for people to mix.
It helps people relax too so they can deliver a better elevator pitch.
Close-up magic helps participants relax and let their guard down.
This can unlock creativity and inspire participants to get involved sooner – so they get more from their investment.
Chris understands exactly what we want & delivers every time!

At An Awards Dinner
Setting a fun tone at either an awards dinner, gala dinner or Black Tie event is crucial for a successful evening.
Having a close-up magic team circulate during the pre-dinner drinks reception and in between courses will generate an enjoyable atmosphere.
Chris and his team of professional magicians are available for large events to help spread the magic and fun.
Chris and his team were smart, professional and the talk of the evening

More than a side-show!
As you can see, magic is more than a sideshow.
For sure it’s entertaining. It’s a memorable experience that makes people laugh, but that’s just the obvious stuff.
The real magic is what the magic unlocks.
- Positive associations with your brand
- Higher participation
You name it. All sorts of good stuff can happen once a person has experienced a little bit of magic.
