The Conference Magician

    Unique, Memorable, Impactful

    “We hired Leigh to provide our conference attendees something different, and he was absolutely terrific! He is a very charming entertainer that made everyone watch his every move. I really do not know how he does what he does but it was certainly entertaining to watch".
    Larry Deshon
    President of Avis Budget Group
    "We employed Leigh to co-host and facilitate the Accenture annual Conference as part of the DWP Life event in Nov 2020. Leigh supported the event by not only hosting the event on his own Zoom but co-hosted the introduction to segments, speakers and general facilitating which took so much stress off of the organisers and gave the event such a unique twist!"

    Leigh's Conference Facilitation Like No Other

    Working closely with you to arrange a conference unlike any other; Leigh can host and facilitate the entire day, performing icebreakers to warm everyone up, holding team-building activities, keynote workshops on memory work and how to implement such skills into the workplace, as well as personalised magic presentations and branded routines to entertain and reward. With this engaging, highly interactive and matchless conference experience, your delegates are sure to stay focused, energised and motivated at all times.

    The Complete Conference Solution

    Using a smattering of hypnosis in a light-hearted, comedic way, Leigh will have all your delegates’ hands locked together within the first three minutes of introducing himself to the room, immediately setting your conference apart from rest, instantly grabbing your attendees’ attention and setting a superb tone for the rest of the day. And it doesn’t end there as Leigh will intersperse icebreakers and energisers throughout the entire conference, keeping everyone focused, motivated and ultimately energised!

    Conference Hosting

    Choose to have Leigh co-host or fully host your entire conference… it’ll give a fun edge to the day, ensure a consistent flow of energy and keep everything running smoothly. Creating magical introductions for your speakers to walk on to or to introduce the next segment, Leigh will use icebreakers, magic and interactive games to engage and excite attendees. On-hand throughout the day, Leigh can also be available to help answer delegate questions, act as a distraction to any unforeseen delays and, most importantly, make sure everything runs to time.

    "We booked Leigh for an online event attended by 150+ people. We ran a series of games, with Leigh providing approx 45 minutes of magic, icebreakers and bespoke entertainment across 4 separate online performances, in between the games. He was very engaging, funny, and we had a lot of very positive feedback from the team.!"
    Al Davies
    Performance & Inovation Manager
    “Leigh performed for us digitally fantastic shows which accompanied our conference; with excellent personal touches that our organisation loved. Very professional and courteous. I wouldn't hesitate to get in touch with him!".

    Team Building Activities

    Gathering your team together in the same room is the perfect opportunity to build a stronger, tighter bond, which is exactly why Leigh provides activities and games with teamwork firmly in mind.

    His brilliant bounty of team building activities (some of which have been specifically created so that even the coolest of cynics will actually want to participate!) – from magic workshops and timed team races to problem-solving and collaborative building projects – are an awesome way to get your team working better together. And all can be completely customised to reflect your company’s motto, conference theme and the overall message you want to deliver.

    “Leigh performed for us during a virtual team event in May 2020 and blew us away! The event was 18 people strong and held on Zoom. Leigh has adapted incredibly quickly and has ensured his shows remain intriguing and engaging and above all, entertaining. I recommend Leigh for any corporate team building”.
    Kate Drew
    Head Shopper of Marketing


    Leigh wouldn’t be The Professional Icebreaker if he worked a conference without introducing his unique brand of icebreaking entertainment into the mix. He knows from experience that the sooner people have broken the ice, the sooner they can relax into the event and go with the flow. That’s why he kick-starts the proceedings with a quick-fire icebreaker that involves the entire room and generates a whole lot of intrigue and engagement.

    “I've hired Leigh twice now and he's been first class. We held a team social over zoom with Leigh as the main event and he blew everyone away. It was just what we needed after weeks of lockdown and everyone had a lot of fun. I'd highly recommend leigh and when we're back to seeing people at events I'll be looking to book him in person".
    Chris Lunn
    Managing Director
    “I always call upon Leigh when asked to recommend top entertainment to my clients. Leigh's skill as a magician and conference facilitator is second to none, however its his passion, lively personality and ability to make people feel instantly at ease that makes him an ideal icebreaker for any occasion”.
    Mathew Turvey
    Global Sales Director

    Tailored Energisers & Branded Magic

    Throughout the conference in between different segments of the day, Leigh will provide personalised energisers to consistently keep the momentum going. Working with the client, Leigh will personalise these energisers to feature their key messages that they want to highlight to their attendees as well as incorporating their logo or slogan into the mix for a branded and bespoke quality. Combining his love for magic, personalisation and your messaging will stick with Leigh’s conference services.


    Creating time in your itinerary to have a keynote speaker help get your message across with a much stronger impact can actually break up what can often be a very long day for your delegates, so it’s something that’s definitely worth considering including. Many speakers provide the perfect fodder from which to fuel ideas, motivate and inspire your team; and their talks are easily tailored towards your business needs. And while Leigh does have his own set of visual, interactive keynotes (Being organised, Escaping Your Comfort Zone, and Enhancing Your Memory), he also has access to a cornucopia of equally talented speakers.

    An Example of Leigh's Workshops

    Memory Workshop

    With the ability to memorise over 200 names at any event, Leigh will divulge to your delegates how he’s able to remember items on the spot as they are called out to him, before he delves deep into the system he uses and teaches them how to do it too. It’s a skill that can be easily integrated into daily life and implemented at work. Or choose from one of Leigh’s other conference workshops, like Being Organised and Prepared, Going Out of your Comfort Zone or one of his wickedly wondrous magic workshops, where everyone gets to learn a magic trick to fool their family or win a few drinks down the pub!

    “I highly recommend Leigh's work, even if I am still scratching my head about where the lemon came from!”.

    CEO of Reading Buses

Leigh fitted in with our timings for presentations really well and even helped us out by providing small gifts for each person with his tricks.
