I am ancient compared to many of the new arrivals. Having worked internationally for many many years as a business growth consultant and trainer in the middle east Asia Africa Europe and even the USA I am now semi retired. Magic has played a major part in helping me to create a more informal atmosphere in my workshops especially when promoting creative thinking programmes. Cards have always been my favourite as they are easy to carry through customs onto planes but also because I just like them.

I now have more time to perfect, or even acquire, a few skills and I have to thank members of the Café forum for providing great advice when I have been looking to buy tricks/products the latest being the AFW wallet.

I look forward to spending time, in the café , gaining more insight into the world of magic

Welcome to the Magic Café forum peterdilger

Just curious on how you initiated magic in your workshops and what wizardry you performed.

Welcome peterdilger,

I like to carry a deck myself.

Best of fun in your deepening interest in cards.

Hi TomB
many thanks for the welcome -- as one example I used the magic as ice breakers at the start of a workshop

when discussing problem solving one of the topics is working from a known outcome for example I would use a magic trick and discuss that the only known outcome or even known action was at the end ie the result and then look at the technique of working backwards to try to establish the events/sequence. I would often set them the task of coming up with a way I could have done it and giving the team with the best answer the deck of cards as a memento. this could then be linked to a problem that needed to be solved and have them mimic the process working back from the known outcome
Loads of other ways to incorporate tricks and it always adds an element of surprise and interest
