Magician Singapore – corporate event

Magician Singapore performs at MasterCard corporate event

When you work as a corporate Magician Singapore you are sometimes booked for events that are not a regular performance like at party or corporate dinner. I am currently hired by MasterCard to support their launch of a new program called Priceless Surprises.

Basically I have to come out twice an hour and perform a quick bit for the current winner. I sometime think this is not ideal for Magic since you are used as gadget. However I believe it is your job to your best to perform a good show for the client regardless of the setting. During one of the performances I had 2 ladies on the platform with me and their faces were the perfect match for the tagline of the campaign a priceless surprise. I hope that the on site photographer got a snapshot of that. Basically it is important to have fun with any given situation this positive attitude transcends to the people watching and they ‘usually’ like what you do. I will do 4 more of these at Sentosa and at the MasterCard Theater at Marina Bay Sands.

Corporate event Magician Singapore

Corporate event Magician Singapore

One of my repeat customers My Private Chef hired me to do close up/strolling/roving at a big event at the Gardens by the Bay at the flower field hall. My Private Chef specializes in high-end private and corporate hospitality events. What makes us unique is that they focus on the whole occasion from the menu, custom designed by one of the top chefs in their portfolio. The client was BNP Paribas a French bank and financial services company. They had about 300 invited guest for this cocktail event. Since I can cover about 100 people in an hour I hired another magician to perform with me. His name is Solomon a local magician with excellent close up skills. We have done quite a number of events in the past and he fits the bill for corporate events especially for an international crowd.

 

Restaurant Magicians

Restaurant magicians face sometimes the obstacle of smaller crows at their residence performance place. At the Hyatt this is usually no issue since they have an average of 250 – 300 guests every Sunday and in 2 hours I can cover at the most 100 people. However today there were only about 150 guests due to a lot of short notice cancellations and I could cover about two thirds of the tables. At the restaurant I worked prior to the Hyatt. we had usually between 8-15 tables for the brunch and it was easy to get around. The trick was to stay around longer and chit chat more, but that’s part of the job. I believe if you are not a people person you can’t do close up magic. Until next week.

Restaurant magician

As a restaurant magician you often get  requests from management to entertain some VIP customer/guest. At the Hyatt they have private rooms that you can reserve for the brunch with cater for up 30 people. Yesterday I got a request to entertain at one of the rooms for one of the VIP guests. When I walked in and introduce myself the main person looked at me stone faced and said no thank you. All you can do is excuse yourself politely and exit. However the gentleman just played a joke and started laughing – he was basically testing my reaction and the others in the room looked how I would respond. I just said you have a great sense of humor I think it would be worthwhile to include you in my act as heckler at other tables would you mind after the performance here to come along. I got a laugh and he said yes. The rest of the show was great and I stayed longer than usual. You have to think on your feed as a restaurant magician.

Hyatt Magician

Back after 2 weeks vacation to my job as Hyatt Magician. It was good to have a rest be outside Singapore for a while. This week I had the pleasure entertaining a friend for mine from my Karate Club who came to the brunch. He had no idea that I was performing there it was a fun surprise.

Entertainer for Corporate Event

Apr 11 Lexmark Entertainer for corporate event

Lexmark engaged me to perform at the Lexmark Asia Pacific 2013 Achiever Awards Night. I did 25 minute stage show. We had the objective to transit from the show directly to the Award presentation. I created a prediction effect in which a person from the audience chose freely one of the 15 awardees. I had an envelope in full view from the beginning of the show and it contained a paper with that name. I announced the name the Emcee came up and took over the rest of the presentation. For an event like this it is important that a magician, corporate entertainer focuses on the main objective (incorporation of the Award theme in the show) as much as he focuses on the show. As hard as it is some times the entertainment is not the main part of the event.

Entertainment Corporate Event

Apr 9 Deloitte entertainment corporate event strolling magic

My friend Picasso hired me to perform at a Deloitte corporate event at the Ritz Carlton.  I did 2 hours of strolling magic and shared the gig with Adam Chua a great caricaturist. You can check out his website here . We have worked together at multiple events before but I always forget to ask him to draw a caricature of me. Well, maybe next time. The group consisted of mainly Deloitte tax consultants from all over the world. Not surprisingly I found a bunch of Germans there. Germany has one of the most complicated Tax Laws worldwide and to do your taxes you definitely need a consultant. I prefer Singapore – I can do it on my own.

Corporate Entertainment

Apr 1 Unigroup corporate event

Unigroup engaged my corporate entertainment services for the partner event at the Boathouse in Singapore. I performed 2 hours of strolling magic 1st on the rooftop during the cocktail reception and then at the tables during the dinner in between courses. The group was very diverse with people from Singapore, Taiwan, Germany, Australia, Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, Belgium, England…. It is interesting to see how different nationalities react to magic entertainment. The good thing is – magic it is truly cross-cultural corporate entertainment and I have never met a country/nationality that could not relate to it. Even the spectator and I don’t speak the same language they still understand what is going on. Performing for groups like this is for me the highlight of a performance since the reactions are very different e.g. from a local Singaporean Chinese to a Japanese or French person.
