On Friday Theo the Magician was asked to Host his “Hat-Trick” (third) Speed Networking Day on behalf of The Sutton Chamber and Sutton Council. Over 64 local businesses appeared at The Oaks Golf & Conference Centre in Carshalton, Surrey.
The day kicked off with Laurence Lowne, Sutton Chamber’s Events Coordinator, informing everyone off future Events planned by Sutton Chamber. Theo then began with a Mind Reading Experiment with everyone. Theo was able to predict three things everyone was thinking of to the amazement of the whole room. It took a while for everyone to settle. Then Theo did a one to one Mind Reading Effect with Peter Hunter of Websitedivision to his astonishment. Theo went on to tell Peter, be careful what you think about today. Ice was now broken and everyone was feeling relax and amused. Theo then went straight into explaining how The Speed Networking works. All the businesses sat on tables of eight and where given 90 seconds to tell the whole table about their business and hand out their cards (business cards, not playing cards). Theo then rang his Magic Bell and the next person did the same. Once the whole table had a go we all had a lovely buffet of tasty Prawns, meat, salad Mmmmmmmmm!!!!!! was the general feedback. Everyone then sat at a different table and did the rounds again. After this we had pudding of crumble, Profiteroles and fresh fruit. Some had a bit of everything, not mentioning any names. Yes, you guessed it, we all sat at another table did the same again and finished with coffee for even more Networking. If you attended, you would have directly spoken to at least 21 different businesses and they would have gone away with your details, not including the extra bonus hour at the end over coffee where you could have Networked with the other 43 businesses. Everyone found it very beneficial to their business and had a thoroughly productive day in a relaxed, fun, magical atmosphere. Don’t take my word for it, as I am emailing everyone that attended and asking them to leave their own comments externally of the day.
There was a Magic Prize Draw, where everyone put their business card into Theo’s Magic Hat. Sharon Dobbyn of Passion for the planet was asked to dive into Theo’s Magic Hat and pull out the winner, Robert Brigham of Copley Clark & Bennett’s Solicitors, who happened to be sitting next to her. He disappeared as soon as he was given his DVD. He had a choice of Magic for Beginners or Balloon Modelling for Beginners with 2o Balloons and a Pump, which can be viewed on Theo’ s Website below. He opted for Magic for Beginners. That’s why he disappeared.
The day started with a Magic Trick and finished with a Magic Trick. Tony Matthews of Absolute Solutions was asked to freely choose a card from a shuffled deck. Theo then asked if he had seen the classical Card Trick of Card on Ceiling, which he replied yes. Theo then shuffled the cards again and threw the whole deck at the ceiling above Tony. Everyone growned, as a card did hot appear on the ceiling. Theo then asked Tony to drawn back the curtain to the right of him. His card appeared stuck on the outside of the window. I can’t print what he said, but he and everyone gave a very enthusiastic applause. A fun way to finish the day!!!!!!!!!
