How to Think like a Magician, Persuade like a Lawyer and Negotiate as if your Life Depends on it
Building trusted relationships with customers and colleagues in a world of distraction, disruption and disconnection
It’s been said that “The best way to predict the future is to create it”. With continuous changes to technology and the disruption to our lives that this causes, it can be hard to know where to start in order to do just that. In his signature keynote presentation Gary draws on his unique background to show the audience exactly how to be more influential in their work and personal lives, so that they can create their own future and that of those they live with, work with and serve.

This is the keynote presentation that Gary was asked to give to senior Court Judges to help them assess the reliability of witnesses – adapted to any audience that needs to build better relationships. Gary takes audiences behind-the-scenes to reveal the principles of perception and deception used by magicians, lawyers and hostage negotiators and shows audiences the verbal and non-verbal cues that reveal if someone is lying to you. He then demonstrates how they can use those insights to be more influential by being perceived as “the truth-teller” when communicating with colleagues, customers and clients.
