Want to change the world? It takes an unusual kind of leader.
Steve Jobs told you to "Think Different," but never told you how.
We teach you to think, innovate & lead like a Wizard.
Wizards are change agents. They change lives, organizations, companies and even states.
The wizard leader is dedicated to facilitating transformation-but often in ways you might expect. Merlin wasn't a king. Gandhi never held a government office, and Einstein had trouble even finding a decent job. Yet each created amazing positive change.
Like modern-day magicians, the Wizard does what others see as impossible. But real wizards do it to change the world, not just to entertain.
When you encounter difficult situations that won't yield to traditional solutions, whether in your personal life, your company, or another group, what you probably need is a completely new way of seeing and acting on those situations. You need tools of transformation -- we're here to provide those tools.
At The Wizard Venture, we create experiences that help you transform yourself, your organization, and the world around you. We've been creating unique experiences for over thirty years in the form of training sessions, conferences, shows, and experiential retreats. We use unique insights from neuroscience, cognitive psychology, performing arts training, deep trance meditation, illusion arts and other "outside the 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 and feel like real magic!
Experience 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 will provide.
The Wizard Venture began with two books by Tobias Beckwith. He felt that the performer's experience and point of view could be immensely useful to business leaders, students, parents, educators and others. In the process of writing, he discovered the idea of real wizards -- great change 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.
