Last night I was performing for Wacker Chemie Singapore at the Paulaner Brauhaus. It was the companies 100 year anniversary. Prior to the show the Client and I had a session to come up with corporate event ideas for this special occasion that included Wacker Chemie and the occasion. In the beginning they only wanted me to do close up magic prior and during the dinner at the tables. We decided to have also a quick 5 minute performance on the platform right after the CEO’s introduction speech. I came up with an effect whereby I handed out a sketchpad to the CEO. I borrowed then an iPhone from an audience member who opened the calculator app. Various people in the audience added multiplied subtracted numbers finally one person hit the equal sign. This person read out the number and it matched the number written on the sketchpad. However the number 13101914 also was the date of the foundation of Wacker Chemie 13. October 1914. The picture below shows the reveal of the number.
Corporate entertainment idea – Visa Awards Night 2014
This week I was engaged to entertain at the Visa Awards Night at Waterview room at Gardens by the Bay. I only performed during the cocktail and photo taking session prior to the dinner for about 1.5 hours. Since the crowd was about 400 people I had to make sure to cover as many as possible. This doesn’t leave much time for each group. I tried to focus on groups of 6 or more and build a crowd during the performance. When a company is looking for a corporate entertainment idea for an event like this they usually require a performer that doesn’t need time to set up or that needs a lot of space. I believe that close up magic is one of the best options since you still have the interaction with the audience and it can be personalized for your company. The picture below was taken at the beginning of the event I think it was my first group.
