The Psychology of Illusion​

​Optional Titles: ​The Power of Perspective​ or A Mind Opened by Wonder ​

In 1997, “The Masked Magician” revealed to the world secrets from the art of magic; this threatened the very existence of the craft. What took magic to the brink has given it the greatest opportunity to innovate and thrive. Vinh Giang will share with ​your attendees the power of perspective and how collaboration can help ​you to​ create new solutions rather than fix old problems. You’ll learn one of the most powerful tools that will help you craft the future you desire. Hearing Vinh will open your mind to new possibilities, as he takes you on an unforgettable journey through his moving family story, remarkable insights into human psychology, business and the wonderful art of magic.

Strategy ​vs​ Execution

Everything in business begins with an idea​. From that idea​,​ we formulate a strategy and depending on how well we execute the strategy​,​ we’ll get some kind of result. Hopefully success.

In magic everything also begins with an idea​. T​he magician then needs to create a strategy and depending on how well he/she executes​​ the magic,​ some kind of result will be achieved. Hopefully astonishment.

Though the two seemingly different worlds appear to be identical​,​ there’s one primary difference​. I​n the world of magic​,​ flawless execution is critical. If the magician makes one mistake, just one, the magic is destroyed. The difference between amazement and failure is just one error.

The difference between those who are good and those who are great does not lie within the​ir strategy​. I​t lies within their ability to execute and perform. Vinh will share with you the ​P​erformer​’​s ​E​dge and how you can work towards flawless execution in business and life to reach your full potential.

Communications Workshop

Following Vinh’s keynote, for those dedicated to improving their communication skills, Vinh offers 2 options: a 90 minute workshop with content delivery plus participation. For a more in-depth session, Vinh will do a 2 to 3 hour workshop including filming the participants for their take-home learning.

Perspective

“COLLABORATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS.”

With this topic, Vinh presents the audience with several magic performances, and invites them to offer their solutions as to how they were done. In going through this process, the audience learns quickly that perspective is the key to solving any problem. After all, magic is just a problem that the general public do not have the solution to. While it may appear complicated, remember that magic tricks are problems specifically designed to never be solved. Now if you can get even a small insight into how to solve magic tricks, imagine the clarity you will take into the other problems in your business and personal lives. Magicians are great problem solvers: it’s a skill they inherit as a result of learning such a secretive art.

Misdirection

“IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SEE THAT COUNTS, IT’S HOW YOU CHOOSE TO LOOK AT IT.”

Misdirection is one of the most important aspects of the art of magic. Through a visual demonstration, Vinh takes the audience through a series of magic effects to show them how easily one can be misled. Vinh then takes you deep inside the psychology behind the art of magic to show and prove to the audience that your negative beliefs, no matter what they are, do not exist. Vinh will show your audiences how to overcome misdirection in life and business. With this mindset, audiences will realize that there are no limits to what they can achieve. It is only with this mindset that magicians are able to create magic. Let Vinh help you and your team create magic with what you do in business!

Influence

“YOU ARE THE DIRECT REFLECTION OF THE TOP 5 PEOPLE YOU SPEND TIME WITH.”

In this presentation, Vinh takes you exclusively behind the scenes and shows you how magicians are able to influence their spectators in an incredible way. It is through this demonstration that Vinh asks the question: “Who is influencing you in your life”‘ and “Are your decisions really your own?” Vinh will demonstrate techniques on blocking out negative influence, and gaining and maintaining a positive mind set. Imagine just for a moment that you “got up on the right side of the bed” every single day for the next three months. How would that change your life? How would that change your business? Mindset is everything.

 

Showmanship

“PEOPLE WILL FORGET WHAT YOU SAID OR DID, BUT NEVER HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.”

Re-energise your sales team by having them witness Vinh perform a spectacular feat of magic, followed by a personal insight into the “behind the scenes” of the effect. Vinh reminds us all that every encounter is a performance, and the importance of always giving it your all. This applies to every interaction throughout your day, but most particularly when it is a sales encounter; because no matter how many times we have done something, we need to remember that the person on the receiving end is experiencing it for the first time, and we need to make sure it is the best experience possible. This is a crucial point of self reflection that is deeply empowering, which the audience will always remember.

 

Thinking Differently

“RATHER A MIND OPENED BY WONDER, THAN ONE CLOSED BY NEGATIVE BELIEFS.”

This is by far Vinh’s most popular talk, in which he performs and speaks about the five different areas of magic, and then links this seamlessly to psychology. When the audience can see the psychological deception taking place in magic, they will be able to immediately see the deception we create within our own business and personal lives. This keynote will dispel negative beliefs and empower your audience to believe that anything in life is possible.

Goal Setting

“HOW CAN YOU HOPE TO HIT A TARGET YOU CANNOT SEE? LET ALONE A TARGET YOU DO NOT HAVE?”

For every show that Vinh performs, it is crucial that it goes according to plan, because the margin for error in magic is very narrow. When achieving the impossible, it is all the more important that the goals for each act are identified and established well beforehand. There is no better way to illustrate this concept than to prove to the audience through a feat of seemingly impossible magic that the events of the entire show were prepared before it even began.

Anything is Possible

“YOUR BELIEFS DICTATE YOUR ACTIONS.”

Magic is an art that is created to demonstrate the impossible. The beautiful thing about this is that the very nature of magic shows us that things that are seemingly impossible can be made to happen. Vinh highlights this concept by first accomplishing an immensely impressive feat, and follows this by walking the audience through how this seemingly impossible feat was actually achieved. Through several powerful exercises, Vinh is able to break down the barriers that we have in our minds, which hold us back from accomplishing truly amazing things. As cliché as it may come across to begin with, the undeniable fact that Vinh demonstrates right before our very eyes proves that anything is indeed possible. Definitely a key finishing statement to the audience that leaves them on an extremely high note.
