About My Guest

Paul has been a magician for most of his life, ever since his parents bought him a Paul Daniels magic set for his birthday. Magic has been his main career for over 10 years, having stepped away from the corporate world to follow his passion.

He had many different jobs in the past, including working in theatres as a technician, and working within sales teams around the country. The last “proper” job Paul had was working for Thomas International, where he helped companies to understand their staff better through the use of psychometric assessments.

Understanding people and how they tick has helped Paul produce and design shows all around the world. He uses trickery, stagecraft and blatant cheating to entertain and confuse crowds of people.

In his book MentalTheft, he explains how his love of magic and mind reading techniques made him realise that people can be duped into giving away their closest secrets. This can include their passwords, PIN numbers and so many other things that could make personal and business security a massive issue.

He now travels the world, in person or via the internet, helping people realise that their world could be so much more secure with just a few tweaks.
