Who is he?

Paul Gertner is a magic innovation expert. He is a unique combination of Steve Jobs and Penn & Teller, a speaker, salesman, innovator and magician all at the same time. He is in demand as a speaker for business audiences to Open Meetings and Open Minds to encourage openness to new ideas. By sharing the methodologies from the world of the magician Paul empowers his audience to strive for more innovative solutions by looking at the problem from the perspective of magician that “Innovation makes Anything Possible.” This approach results in more creative ideas and solutions but more importantly Paul will make sure your audience is fully engaged, and that your message sticks.

For more than 30 years Paul Gertner has worked with over 1,000 clients ranging from Pitney Bowes, IBM, Siemens, Sherwin-Williams, Cardinal Health, GlaxoSmithKline, at meetings and conventions in 25 countries and almost 90% of Paul’s clients bring him back again and again. No matter what the industry Paul will make sure your audiences is excited, engaged and ready to focus on your message with an open mind.

Paul seamlessly blends together the worlds of business, education and entertainment. He has spoken at two TEDx Conferences, lectured at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology and has been featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal twice. He has appeared multiple times on NBC’s The Tonight Show, on NBC’s World’s Greatest Magic, HBO, ABC’s That’s Incredible! and he has performed at the inauguration of the President of the United States. He wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed one-man theatrical production “Paul Gertner-Ten Fingers.” Paul’s newest one-man show BRAINDROPS: Mind Reading, Magic & iPads takes a magical look at our obsession with new technology and delivers a powerful message about topical issues like social media responsibility and the dangers of texting and driving.

Recognized by his peers as one of the finest sleight-of-hand magicians in the world today, his three first place awards in international competitions in Las Vegas, Madrid and Miami are one-of-a-kind achievements. Even celebrity magician David Copperfield has called upon Paul to consult on his TV specials. His original routines, the Cups and Balls with Steel Ball Bearings and the Ring on the Hourglass, have become classics of magic – leaving the experts totally amazed.

✰✰✰✰✰ FIVE STAR LECTURE Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2014
What can I say, Paul Gertner is a legend. This lecture was everything I expected and more. I've been a fan of Paul's for over thirty years and have seen him lecture before. He's the best at creating memorable Magic.

Paul is probably best know for his "Steel Cups & Balls" and lets not forget his very popular "Unshuffled" card effect. Just to see Paul perform these two signature effects was worth the cost of the lecture for me.

He spends a lot of time explaining how to properly perform "Unshuffled" and shares stories of how versatile and effective this effect is in the cooperative world. Take it from me, if you put in the practice this effect can make a career.

Paul is a wonderful performer with great stories to tell as well. Paul has won numerous Awards in Magic, including FISM. He is the only Magician to be on the Tonight Show with Carson three times and was invited to Carson's home as well. There's a reason for his success, he's one of the best on the planet. Thank you Penguin for another great lecture. If you appreciate elegant magic, order this lecture, You'll enjoy watching this living legend work and teach it all to you.

Paul's the BEST Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 17th, 2014
I love Paul's work. Watching him is just amazing and he doesn't hold anything back. He teaches the cups and balls, some great routines from Eddie Fechter and much more.

He shared valuable tips and even told everyone his presentation for Unshuffled for TRADE SHOWS! For those of you who are looking for real advice for trade shows, here it is.

He also tips some work to make the classic force USABLE. Not only that but explains almost every situation you can come across...

If you want to see a REAL pro who performs for laymen ALL the time. Check out this lecture.

Great Lecture!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 9th, 2014
Well instead of saying how great it was, and it was!, and saying everything everyone else has said, still Great! - The thing that hit home with me is his insight: to try to get you to know (relative) who you are compared to what others think you are - is the same or close... - as close as one can do, in other words your inside self sees the outside self as others do, not an easy thing to do... regardless he's one smart guy! :)
