A little while ago I was invited to a special business event being held at the Madejski Stadium in Reading. This event was aimed at the local business community and was hosted by YELL (formerly Yellow Pages). As I used to work for YELL before becoming a full-time magician it was an event I was very much looking forward to and it certainly did not disappoint. The Madejski is an excellent venue and I thoroughly enjoyed mingling with the guests doing a bit of magic for people. I even bumped into a few old faces who I used to work with a few years ago and they were rather suprised to see that I'd left the corporate world and was now a full-time magical entertainer - quite a career change!
One of the guests and speakers at the event was Gerald Ratner the (in)famous businessman now turned public speaker. He gave an excellent and entertaining presentation on the joys and pitfalls of business. I was lucky enough to grab some of his time afterwards, had a bit of a chat and showed him some card magic.
All-in-all it was a great event and many thanks to YELL for inviting me along. If you've got a forthcoming event that would benefit from a bit of magic then get touch!
