Tuesday 11th April 23 Craig Petty Lecture



How does a failing magician and businessman wind up motivating professional audiences all over the UK?

How does a self-confessed bum and terrible magician who kept getting bad audience after bad audience over and over again end up running multiple successful businesses, and standing on stage at one of Europe’s biggest business exhibitions?

And how is he going to help you, your audience and your event?

Craig’s career was littered with failure, disaster, and one terrible magic gig after another. He was in a hole and the only thing he had was magic.
