Got Our Sales Team Motivated

“Chris used his skill as a master magician to help get our sales team motivated for the new year. His message on marketing had the team spellbound by his uncanny ability to perform outstanding and entertaining tricks of magic. I would recommend Chris for other businesses in need of marketing and motivational messages. As a matter of fact, as the current President of the Carterville Chamber of Commerce, I recommended Chris to the board to perform at our annual membership dinner next month. We know he will be a hit!”

I would highly recommend him for any function or party. He will keep your people entertained and fill the room with laughter.”

preparation and at the event. He engages the audience in a fun and creative way through magic, but also

delivers an important and memorable message tailored to the specific needs of his clients.”

Accessible Style That Just Draws People In

“I've worked with Chris on two different product launches in a prospect entertainment context. Chris merges the repertoire of a sophisticated illusionist with humor, drama, a very strong stage presence and an accessible style that just draws people in. Chris scripted and conducted our product launches at two separate national trade shows. In one case, he delivered a grand-slam live 'infomercial' in the context of an invitation only

break-out session and in the other case – using simple booth confidence and some classic sleight-of-hand – he drew a ridiculously disproportionate number of attendees to our booth as our competitors simply watched

incredulously in stunned disbelief. We left the national event in Sacramento with nearly 5 times as many leads as we would have typically expected, as a result of Chris' work.”

Craig Williams, Founder & CEO, Community Link

Genuine And Engaging

“Let's talk about connecting! From the moment he steps on stage, his audience has the comfortable feeling that Chris is their lifelong, clever pal..Their pal who happens to do amazing illusions. His warmth and wit are

compelling. Genuine and engaging, Chris is an ideal partner to motivate and warmly entertain in any venue!”

Deborah Frey, CEO, Freyworks

Dynamic, Engaging And Entertaining

“I've had the good fortune to work with Chris Egelston on many occasions. He truly embodies the term "professional" in every way. Chris' business and marketing expertise has helped not only myself, but many others, to take our businesses to the next level and beyond. As a communicator and presenter, Chris is

dynamic, engaging, and entertaining. I wholeheartedly give Chris my highest recommendation. You simply can not go wrong working with him.”

Scott Lowry, President, The S.D. Lowry Group

Very Attentive To Detail And A Joy To Work With

“Chris is both an entertainer and educator--a great mix for the audiences we've hired him to entertain and teach. Chris uses business concepts and magic to "edutain" audiences. We've hired Chris for everything from CampCEO middle school and high school business campers to Carbondale Chamber of Commerce

Entrepreneurship monthly luncheon full of business owners. Chris is very attentive to detail and a joy to work with. I highly recommend Chris for your event.”

Robyn Russell, Director Of Business Development & International Trade, Southern Illinois University

Highly Recommend Chris, He Is A True Pro

“We had Chris as a guest on the television show that I produce. Let me just say, he was very captivating to watch and had the full attention of every person in the studio. Even after filming him in action and watching the playback, I am unable to see how he pulls off his illusions. He has perfected the very real art form of

commanding the attention of a crowd and making that crowd his audience. The one trick I did learn by

watching his magic is, he uses his show to deliver a tailored message. The message of whomever has wisdom enough to hire him. He has very smartly combined the savvy and sleight of hand of a magician with the

communication skills of a master salesperson. In the end what you get is a show that serves as a perfect and efficient vehicle for delivering a company's message while still being very entertaining. The audience is

learning without even realizing that it is happening. I highly recommend Chris, he is a true pro. If you haven't seen him in action yet, trust me, you literally can't believe your eyes.”

Jason Pinkston, Executive Producer at Treetop Productions SI

Helpful And Encouraging

“I have had the privilege of hearing Chris speak and perform on several occasions. His message is helpful and encouraging to small business owners. There are always helpful tools available when Chris speaks to a group of business owners. If you have the opportunity to hear Chris speak or have him help motivate your sales force I strongly recommend you do so.”

Kelli Ballard, President, Business Resource Group

Stage Personality Was Second To None

“Consensus was unanimous YOU WERE GREAT!!!!!  Everyone I talked to after the show was in complete amazement of your magic act and in complete agreement that your stage personality was second to none.  Working with you prior to the event was also a pleasure, you were attentive to all of our details and

executed your program in complete detail to our specs.  I especially liked how you used the pre-show

questionnaire to get a pulse of our company and our employees.  If anyone ever asks me whom I’d pick as and entertainer at a company function the answer would be simple, CHRIS EGELSTON.”

Tim Leake, Vice-President, Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company
