Joe M. Turner - Atlanta Magician, Mentalist, Professional Speaker
Joe M. Turner leverages the impact, power, and fun of visual and psychological illusions - impossible experiences for the eyes and mind - to engage audiences around ideas, events, companies, and messages.
He creates customized magic, mentalism and illusion presentations for meetings and events in the United States and Canada. His one-man show ran for over two years at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta and now tours other theaters, venues and corporate events across America.
By adapting his performances to emphasize his clients' key messages, Joe has developed a niche as The Chief Impossibility Officer. As a spokesperson he has engaged thousands with compelling presentations at trade shows, product launches, and other marketing events. He has also served as a magic consultant, writer and director for television, theatre, film and promotional projects. Joe has entertained prominent elected officials, sports figures, corporate leaders and other celebrities. He has performed and been interviewed in numerous television, radio and print appearances, including appearances on Good Morning America, Nightline, and CNN Headline News.
Joe is a repeat performer at renowned entertainment venues, including regular appearances at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California. Joe is one of an elite group of performers who is certified to perform in all three of their showrooms – close-up, parlor, and stage. He was also recently elected to membership in The Magic Circle in London, receiving the unusual distinction of an immediate elevation to an advanced degree (A.I.M.C. with Silver Star). For you, these credentials simply mean that Joe delivers a proven combination of world-class skills and multi-venue versatility to meet your group's specific needs.
Joe combines seven years of corporate experience in training, business communication, human performance development and change management initiatives at Fortune 100 clients with his extensive theatre experience and magical talents to create customized magical presentations for his clients. He was a manager in the change management consulting practice at Accenture, and a Vice President in the Business Practices Integration division at Bank of America.
As a professional motivational speaker, some of Joe's keynote topics include "Memory Mojo!" which focuses on mnemonic memory training for personal productivity, and "The MAGIC of Change," a basic change management toolkit for emerging organizational leaders. His new presentation, "The MAGIC of Success and the Illusion of Failure," is due to premiere later this year.
