An expert in behavioural persuasion and influential communication, Lee Warren blends together psychology and sales with his background as a performer to teach others the secrets to being an outstanding business communicator. In an ever cut-throat industry, Lee’s keynotes and workshops give business leaders the skills for making that all important impact.
A professional magician and mind-reader for 20 years, Lee Warren uses his unique background in magic, psychology and sales to teach others the secrets to being an outstanding communicator in the world of business.
Described by Prince William as ‘absolutely amazing’, Lee is one of the most popular magicians in the UK. He has performed at over 1000 networking events; written sell-out theatre shows; and been a commissioned writer at The Almeida Theatre, The Aldeburgh Festival and The Royal Opera House.
Lee knows that, in order to succeed at any level, it is vital to be persuasive and to connect with people.
On the corporate circuit, he works mainly with global firms in finance, technology and marketing, helping others to get their message across to colleagues and clients more effectively; for example, “how to persuade anyone to do anything (well, almost)”, “why grown-ups don’t use PowerPoint”, and “how to make networking work”.
His practical and high-impact presentations, seminars and keynotes have been dubbed ‘business cabaret’.
He operates according to two core beliefs: to entertain audiences with fun, interactive and memorable sessions, and to demonstrate that ‘soft skills’ are the key to personal and professional success.
Some of Lee’s clients include: Deloitte, HSBC, GE Capital, ACE European, Visa Europe, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Bauer Media, The Home Office, Douglas & Gordon and Mott Macdonald.
In a previous life, Lee was a sales manager at The Times Supplements; he worked for several years in media sales at News International; and, in 2010, he set up Invisible Advantage for the fun of trying to make a company successful in the middle of a recession!
He is fluent in Spanish and not very good at playing the piano.
His speaking topics include:
- Connect with clients and colleagues
- Get your message across quickly and effectively
- Conduct sales meetings that get results
- Present persuasively, powerfully and confidently
- Become customer-centric, not process-centric
- Build and grow solid business relationships through networking
