How Perry Can Help You

In Perry’s private corporate speaking, entertainment and training, the topics don’t have to be limited to security.  While, Perry leverages his skills and experience as an expert in his field, he does so contexts that are broadly appealing to leadership, management, and sales. Perry delivers intense, fully-engaging, ‘edge of your seat’ training and speaking drawing from over 2 decades of experience in various areas of magic, mentalism, and suggestion to demonstrate real-world mentalism skills — and how those skills can be effectively harnessed and put to use in your personal context.

While speaking about leadership, sales, management — or a number of other topics — your audience will see mind-bending demonstrations of body language reading, influence, and psychological ‘thought reading.’  Though none of what Perry does is ‘psychic’ in nature, and the skills & effects demonstrated can be learned by anyone, your audience will be left in awe by seeing the seemingly impossible occur.

You’ve seen these skills demonstrated in TV shows like Lie to Me and The Mentalist, and even in great literature like the Sherlock Holmes stories.  Perry’s keynotes, performances, and training events focus on teaching these skills in ways that can be immediately applied in all aspects of life, whether business or personal.

Contact us for information about:

  • Keynotes (usually 45-60 minutes, but can be customized to meet specific needs)
  • Half-day or full-day workshops
  • Seminars
  • Entertainment  (lighter on the learning/content, heavy on the demonstration/fun — either walk-around, or stage)
