What do you get on the day?

The one-day Beyond Belief workshop consists of a full magic show that you will learn how to perform.

We will unpick the structure, the thinking behind it, the construction of the show and give you insight into the Behind-The-Scenes of how to build, improve and deliver any of your presentations.

On top of this, we weave in ideas from across mentalism, psychology, stand-up comedy neuroscience, theatre, acting, character writing, storytelling, behavioural insights and communication.

By the end of the day, you will be able to perform each of these tricks with an hour or so practice and integrate into what you do:

The Impossible ObjectCreate an utterly impossible object using your own business card, right in the hands of your audience.

Manifest RealityWarp reality and create optical illusions in your hands using solid objects that penetrate one another.

The Magic SquarePerform an almost-impossible feat, showing your incredible cognitive, arithmetic and memory skills.

Any Word, Any TimePluck a thought-of-word directly out of one of your spectator’s minds, completely fairly and cleanly.

The Memory Master Memorise an entire deck in seconds, recall a character’s life details, tell people the sequence of seemingly shuffled cards and much more, without any hard work!

A Full Testament
A random page is chosen from any book, and you are able to tell them the page number, as well as the first word, sentence or entire paragraph if you wish.

Attention GrabbersThe entire day is peppered with small, quick and effective tricks that grab people’s attention, make you more memorable and stand out from the crowd.

George works with a blend of psychology, behavioural sciences and mentalism to entertain, improve people's lives, working towards greater innovation and creativity and increased business opportunities.

He has been studying human psychology for over 30 years, with many awards and degrees under his belt. In the early 1990's, he was faced with working with vulnerable young adults - this is where he found the power of magic to entertain people and enrich peoples' lives.


Alex is an actor, designer and experienced magician who specialses in using a blend of psychology, behavioural insights and mentalism to tell effective, engaging and empowering stories.

Alex has spent over half of his life learning magic, performing on stage and across the UK. He focuses his attention on spreading awareness of mental health issues and sharing powerful storytelling techniques.

The Psychological Aspects

Magic and creating magical effects involve mainly psychology to make them work.

People often ask, “isn’t magic deceitful?” The easy answer is ‘yes, but…’ The complicated answer is ‘yes but no’.

Magic works because of our deeply engrained psychological flaws. When we perform a magic effect, we are using human psychology, behavioral sciences and neuroscience to show how our way of viewing the world is almost entirely false, informed through our BIASED SPACES – more on this below.

The psychology and the approaches taken in magic have massive overlaps with how we think in business and in our lives. To be successful in delivering a magic effect, you must have discipline, devotion, willpower and authenticity; these are all attributes for being successful in many areas of our lives.

A large part of what we will discuss in the workshop is the principle of Defend and Discover states.
The Discover – Defend Axis also fits very nicely with the whole VUCA approach:

Discover and Defend

Understanding your hidden depths, or unconscious biases, allows you to stretch your psychological boundaries, cross your cognitive boundaries and move into a discovery state.

The defend state is where we are not just comfortable, but also protective and defensive of our way of viewing the world, rather than looking for different possibilities.

John Doe

In the defend state, what we call the processes of BIASED SPACES are in full operation. In going Beyond Belief, these are the psychological processes that allow the magic to happen and they inform thinking about:

Your Self-Control

Your Habits

Your Motivation

Your Beliefs

Your Expectations

Your Trust

Your Decision Making

Your Perceptions

The discover state is when we push our comfort zone, ignore our conformational biases and even sacrifice the safety net of being conventional.

You can access this by seeking out novelty, by searching for authors, writers and reviews you may initially disagree with, and finding something that pushes at your boundaries.

This is a state many experience on our training days and through our coaching, because the magician’s ways of thinking, and the sleight of mind used, is outside of the usual experiences. The discover state is the seedbed of creativity, novelty and innovation.

Practical, Personal and Engaging

The ideas, methods and techniques presented to you on Beyond Belief provide a rich source of novel ideas and possibilities for you.

The material challenges you and gets people to re-examine the way they think, act and behave. By doing this, we help people become aware of and sensitive to new possibilities. This way, it is a practical, personal and engaging method for enhancing your personal development, business, coaching and training!
