The MAGIC of Kindness

John Hayns knows, like you, that Sales, Leadership and Customer Service are all about Influence.

He also knows, like you, that the Influence is much greater when it is fuelled by Kindness.

20 years as a working magician. 
Thousands of audiences. 
Marketing the gigs, selling the gigs, organising the gigs, performing the gigs. 
Selling, influence, persuasion. 
"All done by kindness"

(David Devant, the first President of The Magic Circle)

Kindness is an intensely practical business superpower. It looks like MAGIC.

John will show you how to add MAGIC to your Sales, Leadership and Customer Service:
