Sometimes I pretend to be normal. But it gets boring. So I go back to being me.
Profile

So, what can we learn from the country's most successful magician?

“It’s Show Business. There’s no show without the business,” says Cosentino. It’s the most important ingredient for any entertainer that is so often misunderstood, glossed over, or simply forgotten.

Cosentino’s personal story is astounding and inspiring.

Learn how Cosentino, a boy with learning difficulties, overcame adversity, beat the odds to reach his dreams and turn a boyhood hobby into an international success story and pioneer a dying art-form in the process.

Newscorp’s Stellar Magazine calls Cosentino more than a magician but rather an “international empire builder”.

A best-selling author, with a signature line of magic products in major retailers, the first Australian magician to create 8 of his own prime-time TV shows airing in over 60 countries and the star of an international touring act playing to full houses all over the world, Cosentino can inspire your team to do the impossible, reach new heights, spark brand new ideas and release their inner creativity.

But Cosentino does more than just inspire your team. He focuses on the key topics of creativity, misdirection motivation and self-awareness ..the tricks of the trade for building a successful business or career. Cosentino reinforces his actionable insights by weaving his magic into the presentation to exemplify each point.

His keynote is mesmerising throughout.

Talking Points

Creativity


How I create a unique, never before seen magical experience for the audience using what I call the 8 fundamentals of magic (Appearance, disappearance, transposition, levitation, penetration, transformation, restoration, predication) to create an original effect.

How I managed to diversify my niche brand and expand it across the nation and the world. From fiction to non-fiction books, magic kits, playing cards, cartoon series, TV Specials and live touring.

50% of future jobs haven’t been created yet. So how do we educate the generation of tomorrow for something that doesn’t exist? This is about the true importance of creativity and why it is the most underestimated human resource.

Sacrifice


What it really takes to live your dream.

The cost involved, financially, mentally and emotionally.

Self-awareness


“Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but that gets boring, so I go back to being me”.

I unpack how I developed an understanding my uniqueness and difference, and how I learned to leverage it. Also, believing in what my true value is.

Teaching techniques to understand “what everybody is saying” through body language and posture.

Motivation

How to get motivated. My 3 motivating factors (success, fear, becoming disturbed) and how to channel them positively for lasting results.
