As a magician, one of Brad’s specialities is ‘Perception’: What You Perceive as impossible, he makes possible!
Brad’s keynote ‘Nothing Is Impossible’ entertains and motivates by using his unique skill set to engage and inspire the audience, along the way he shares some ‘speed bumps’ he has had to overcome to be where he is both personally and professionally today.
At the age of seventeen a severe workplace accident caused Brad to be blinded in one eye and almost lose the other, fortunately after two surgeries and two titanium clips one of his eyes was saved. This life-changing incident presented some challenges that he was forced to deal with and overcome, which in turn ultimately led him towards his new career path.
Most recently Brad was diagnosed with a very rare debilitating neuromuscular and autoimmune condition that limits his ability to use his hands, feet, arms and legs. The impact of this condition was so severe that at one stage he could not even hold a toothbrush, do shirt buttons or even put his hands in his pockets! Just imagine all this while achieving and maintaining the very top international level in his career performing ‘sleight of hand’ in over 25 countries – all without the proper use of fingers and hands. Now that is magic!
Brad has a self-imposed daily physical and mental regime that professional athletes are amazed at. All simply just to keep on top of his condition and make sure that his body performs as best as it is able to. He surfs extreme waves, climbs mountains, does Tough Mudder obstacle courses and teaches magicians worldwide how to perform comedy magic. Remember that his hands and feet don’t ‘work’ properly – truly inspiring!
In Brad’s motivational presentation, he shares with the audience more about how he’s overcome obstacles to show ‘nothing is impossible’. Brad’s keynote is best delivered in conjunction with his stand up comedy magic show. After seeing Brad’s magic routine the night before, attendees are blown away when they hear his entertaining presentation.

Brad’s original roving entertainment blends his likeable personality, humour and amazing skill to deliver a truly unique and enjoyable entertainment experience. Brad is a master in what many people call Real Magic – the performance of magic right in front of the audience so close they can touch and be part of the experience.
By mingling in with your guests, Brad offers you a comical and amazing form of personal entertainment that sees magic often happen in ‘your own hands’. He possesses the ability to astound, amuse and just plain blow away anyone, anywhere, any time.
Brad also has the unique skill of ‘dice stacking’ and he holds the unofficial world record for this obscure feat of 25 dice. If you have not seen this before it is one of the most amazing things you will ever see – and of course as with everything Brad does, he manages to make this funny too!
