Nice Clients, Saying Nice Things!

I'm very lucky that over the past 25 years I have worked for some lovely people and here is just a small selection of the nice things some of them have said about my contribution to their events...

Seriously good, Annoyingly good!

HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge

"I wanted to write to you to say thank you so much for your work on our
Sales Guild Gold Recognition dinner on board the Silver Sturgeon on April
26th.  The feedback that we have had from the whole event has been some of
the best that we have ever had and in particular our guests all really
enjoyed your contribution with your amazing magic tricks.  It was easy to
work out where you were on the boat from the clapping and gasps of
amazement that were heard regularly throughout the night. I would happily provide a reference for you if a potential client asks. Thank you again."

Cathryn Hancock
Peugeot UK

"Just to say a huge Thank You for entertaining everyone at our recent Christmas Party – you were absolutely fantastic. I’ve never seen anything quite like it you were truly amazing and your magic tricks were beyond belief!! You are also a brilliant singer which was a wonderful surprise, I could have listened to you all night.

Thanks for everything you did on the night, I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone – you really did add that “touch of magic” to our event."

Gillian Seville

"Just a quick email to thank you for such a great show on Saturday evening. My guests loved the close up work and the floor show went down an absolute storm. Having never asked anyone to wield an electric saw in such proximity to my midsection before I was glad to find that my internal organs and spine survived the experience intact."

Kirsty Anderson

"Thank you, we had such a lovely time and you were exactly the right person for the job, skillfully orchestrating the magic and your humour to involve everybody…..we loved it!!!!"

Roya Dooman
Blackheath, London

“I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you for performing for us last night at the Hilton Metropole. You did a fantastic job and kept the guests entertained in-between the courses and kept us guessing for hours how you did your tricks!  I particularly liked the trick with the lemons! my compliments to you for such a great performance.”

Natalie Leonard
Konica Minolta

“Your contribution to the evening was excellent, I loved the close magic! You have a great personality and are very entertaining.”

Nick Chaloner

“You were brilliant, reading the audience well, appealing to all ages, and keeping individuals and groups engaged all the time. The feedback we have received from friends and family was fantastic, they thought you were fabulous, on family now have their own ‘Timmy the toilet roll’!”

Rachel & Roger Lawtry
Shepley, West Yorkshire

“You really made our party extra special and a great success, I remember seeing you years ago and have never forgotten the impact you make on an audience and it was great to use you at a party of my own, Excellent, you even amazed the one saw the lemons coming! You’re Fantastic.”

Fiona Raper

“We would just like to thank you for the excellent show you gave on our Ruby Wedding at the Huntsman on the 5th July. We had many guests afterwards saying how impressed they were with your many tricks. The show made our day a most memorable one.”

Peter & Margaret Lucas
Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.

“John was asked to perform card tricks on our James Bond Casino Royale themed exhibition stand. I have nothing but praise for John, his tricks left the audience in jaw dropped amazement. He executed his brief to perfection, from the way he dressed to how he promoted our products whilst performing. We have already booked John for our next corporate event!”

Alan Sheridan
Octanorm UK

“Thank you very much for a lovely evening’s entertainment. I have had several emails from people saying that it was great to see close up magic, and that it was the ‘icing on the cake’ to a great evening.

A very friendly approach, the speed you picked up names and characters added to the evening. Lots of people were trying to catch you out but no one could. As you know we had colleagues from Sweden and the USA, and the Swedes had not seen anything like that before.

No one knew you were coming and that made it more fun, I will certainly recommend you to other IBMers and also anyone else that asks.”

Jeremy Mason

“On behalf of everyone at the west Yorkshire forget me not trust, I would like to say a huge thank you for everything you did on Friday. We have had amazing feedback and everyone seems to have thoroughly enjoyed the event”

Janet Sheard
The West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust, Huddersfield

“John was very professional and reliable, understood exactly what we were trying to achieve, was very flexible and always enthusiastic.  John was involved in the creative process of the presentation almost from the start and came up with some great effects to fit in with the key messages we were trying to get across to the audience.  Considering he had to repeat the same performance approx 25 times he was brilliant!  And most importantly the audience loved him, even the cynics and non-believers were wowed!

He enthused and excited the audience and helped Gail make her session the most memorable and popular of the conference.  From my personal point of view I have really valued his professionalism and flexibility.  More specifically by putting together the show at such short notice, being reliable and trustworthy.”

Sarah Garner
JB Communications on behalf of Estee Lauder Fragrance Launch

“Having completed the five major trade shows scheduled for Procter and Gamble last year I would like to take the opportunity, on behalf of FPP Design, to thank you for all your support.

Your involvement from the early planning stages to the project right through to the actual performances at the shows has been both creative and totally professional. Your presence also ensured that at each venue we created maximum impact and a memorable show for visitors to the stand. I have no doubt that we will use your talents in the near future.”

Derry Green
FPP Design. Newcastle

“Your performance on Friday was amazing, everyone in the room was lost for words apart from “HOW DOES HE DO THAT WITH THE LEMONS!!!” You made the night fly and you gave 110% and how can I forget the thanks from my son Josh WOW were his words”

“It is very rare that feedback from a cross section of people is unanimous but that’s what it was on Saturday and that feedback was that you were Fantastic! The things that people said most were that you were incredibly at ease with the guests, you were very funny and of course the magic was Excellent!”

Lynn & Simon Calderwood

“Thank you again for making our event successful. You were at all times entertaining, amazing and professional. The “close” magic you performed for us during our evening sessions was astonishing with real “wow” factor. Working with you on stage also went really well – it was great to be able to pull off a firecracker end to my presentation with the minimum of fuss and rehearsal. Your performances were at all times of an exceptionally high standard and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending your services to anyone looking to introduce a little bit of magic to their event.”

Tony Preedy

“John has performed his magical act at The Brasserie each weekend for four years. Every Saturday & Sunday lunchtime between the hours of 1pm & 3pm John entertains a full house with excellent table magic.

John has a great personality, a good all round performer and will adjust his repertoire for all age groups.

John has a massive following (weekend bookings have doubled) and The Brasserie has truly benefited from his popular act as our weekend lunch sales have increased by over 35% since he began.”

Mavis Jones

“John is very easy to deal with from the time of confirming our booking, we knew we could completely rely on him, he was ready to adapt to whatever we asked him. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the performance and his ability to appeal to our wide age range was very professional. His act was outstanding and the whole experience John gave us made for a very special event. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone – BUT be prepared to be lost for words!”
