Corporate Suite Magic at Sky Lounge in Japan

In the beginning of September, I was invited to Japan to perform at the Red Bull Air Race’s Sky Lounge. The Sky Lounge hosts dignitaries, the families of the pilots and Japanese superstars.

The Sky Lounge boasted a clear and direct view of the race itself. Guests were invited to the patio to view the race or come into the suite for refreshments and magic entertainment.

So I had the pleasure of performing to Glay and actor Yu Shirota. But embarrassingly, I did not know the scale of their popularity and performed for them as I would in any corporate event.

There was no gushing or fanboying, I performed for them straight on. It might seem kind of weird but I think that might have been a good approach. Their reactions were genuine, and they are there to relax. So they no longer feel the need to maintain a certain image.

And at the end of the performance, I was told by the organizers, “Oh did you know that was “so and so”?” I admitted that I did not to much surprise cos they are really big in Japan.

Check out their reactions in this video:

I love the Japanese hospitality and the enthusiasm of the audience. And I cannot wait to be back!

iPad Magic in Technology Events, Innovation Conferences and Creativity Symposium

There is a rising trend for companies to innovate and use technology to meet and exceed KPIs. Numerous conferences and technological events are held almost every day around the world. I have been blessed to be invited to a few, including those organized by NEC, Singtel, DHL and Cisco. 

We must embrace innovation, not just in the consumer and servicing industries, but also the entertainment industry. Magic is no different.

Often I find the best way to innovate is to draw inspirations from the past. Reading about visionaries who do not give up their ideals of the future greatly inspires me and my magic. What they have created then might be outdated right now, but it was way ahead of its time when it was first conceptualized. 

When I embarked on my iPad Magic, my focus was clear. I wanted to focus on innovation and the capacity of imagination. With that, I created this routine in tribute to the greatest inventor of our time, Thomas Edison.
