“Tim Ellis was invited to speak at our 2012 Christmas lunch in the unlikely guise of a public servant representing the racing industry. He looked, spoke and acted the part superbly and had everyone fooled until it became obvious he couldn’t possibly be genuine! It was a very funny take-off and made for a great lunch.” – Nigel Bennetton, Peninsula Country Golf Club
When next you need a guest speaker, for a conference or a corporate retreat, why do the usual thing when you can shock, surprise and delight your delegates with a magical hoax speaker. Tim Ellis has attended events in character for the Department of Treasury, Accenture, and even as the keynote speaker at the Fundraising Industry Awards.
Tim becomes an illusion himself
He mingles with the guests over dinner, swapping stories, talking shops, convincing them that he is who he claims he is. At the same time he drops a few “bombshells” about the future of their industry that really gets everyone talking. After sharing a meal he steps up on stage and begines his presentation. The slightly off-centre nature of his talk keeps everyone on edge and it’s not until he pulls a full can of drink from his shoe that they realise
This is no ordinary speaker
After the show it’s revealed who Tim is and the applause is loud and strong, not just for the show, but also for the amazing illusion Tim has created for the entire evening.
Tim can customise his presentation to suit your event and can provide all props and costumes, but prefers at least a week’s notice to prepare.
