WOW! Best ever, hard to say. I've learned so much at so many. And it depends on the magic ur interested in too. I've been to lectures in types of magic I don't do, just to see what is going on, they were excellent, but I can't say what I learned was used as much as those who do my type of magic. I'd have to say 3 lecturers stand out to me. Mark Wilson (promoting urself as a magician, promoting with magic, and the business of magic) Harry Lorrayne (card sleights, card tricks, and the best at recovering from a blunder I've ever seen), and Daryl Easton (excellent card, coin and rope closeup / parlor, plus he has so much energy). Those three lecturers impressed me most.

I love all of Duane Laflin's Lectures.

He presents effects that are easy to learn, nice routines, he is easy to understand, adaptable magic to personalize and he sells a lot of good magic.

He has a solid grasp on theater, style, character, originality, magic with silks, sponges, flowers, a great sense of humor, personable type of guy, and his lecture on music was one of his best.

One of my favorite lecture's was Jay Mattioli's lecture at the 2004 Twin City Magic Convention (

Jay is very high energy, and the lecture was on marketing and promotional material... very good.

For Restaurant Magic it was Danny Tong

For Stage it was Jeff McBride

For close-up it was Martin Lewis

FWIW, I'll second the Martin Lewis nomination on close-up. A fluid and engaging presentation combined with serious chops.

Stage? Gotta be Losander. Don't tell me this guy uses some kind of funky Zombie gizmo -- that stuff had to have been floating, and Magic was the only possible cause!

Bonus points to both of these gentlemen for their graciousness and warmth.

It has to be a tie between Aldo Colombini and Chris Capehart.

Al Goshman, and John Mendoza. Both lectures had a big influence on my decision to pursue coin magic in the 70's. Later on, watching Mike Ammar helped me to alter my style toward stand up rather than sit down coin magic.

I saw Juan Tamariz lecture in Manhattan last year (I think it was last year?) and he was amazing.

Tamariz taught me something at his lecture that meant more than any method or effect... so I would say for me he was Numero Uno.

I always enjoy Aldo or Daryl or Sankey. But my favorite memory was at Simon Lovell's house when he hosted private lectures. A full night of Johnny Thompson doing magic and telling stories...
