Wizards are all leaders -- change makers -- but often not in the ways you might expect. Merlyn wasn't a king. Gandhi never held a government office, and Einstein had trouble even finding a decent job. Yet each created amazing change in their worlds.
When you encounter difficult situations that won't yield to traditional solutions, whether in your life, your company, or other group, what you probably need is a completely new way of seeing and acting on that situation. You need tools of transformation -- the tools of a real wizard.
At the Wizard Venture, we create experiences that help you transform yourself, your organization, and the world around you. We use unique insights from neuroscience, cognitive psychology, performing arts training, deep trance meditation, illusion arts and other "outside your box" disciplines to help you redefine yourself and your team. You will learn methods for actively transforming the business and social structures around you. Sometimes the experiences we provide look like keynote talks. Other times, they might look like shows, workshops or weekend retreats. Sometimes they look like magic! Experience is what creates change, and we know how to create and deliver experiences that will bring about the particular change you want. Whatever works best for you and your group -- that's what our multi-talented band of wizards provide.
The Wizard Venture began with two books by Tobias Beckwith. Originally created because Beckwith felt that the actor/performer/magician's point of view could be immensely useful to people outside the entertainment world -- business leaders, students, parents, educators and others. In the process of writing, he discovered the idea of real wizards -- great leaders from history -- like Leonardo da Vinci, Mohandas Gandhi, Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs -- and realized that many of their secrets were the same as the ones he had thought to teach when he began the book. After many years of study, of working and reworking the material, The Wizard's Way and The Wizard's Way to Powerful Presentations were the result.
