Join us in February for two great speakers, Adam Axford - Treating Life as a Game (that will kill you) and Leanne Christie - How Speakers can successfully pivot and thrive in spite of a global pandemic.

Treating Life as a Game (that will kill you) with Adam Axford

With the event calendar wiped cleaned, Adam Axford took a fresh approach to life and within 6 months became the most in demand performer in the country. 

Throughout this fully interactive experience, Adam challenges the audience to contend with him in a game, where each turn opens up a new level of understanding on how to win at the ultimate game - our own life. 

Sharing insights, hacks and cheat codes, Adam’s tried and tested methods reveal the Easter eggs and bonus rounds of base-reality. 

In this interactive session with Adam you will learn:

  • How to conceptualise reality in a way which gives you full autonomy
  • Ways of aligning your mental and physical state for achieving ones potential
  • Adam’s four-step formula for transforming disruption into discovery
  • How to extract gold from the lead-lined gift box of self critique

Fun, sophisticated and powerful, this session will prove you don’t need to be a magician to achieve impossible things in your life and career.  

About Adam Axford

Adam Axford is a professional Magician & Wordsmith with 15 years of international experience. Never once bound by conventional employment, Adam grew up as a market trader, polishing his verbal swords on the streets of East London. By 21 he began his career as a hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner, guiding others through transformative transitions. 

Unconvinced by the efficiency of these one-on-one sessions, Adam explored new ways of adjusting people’s perception en masse. Diving wholeheartedly into the world of entertainment through magic and mentalism, his skills of psychological influence and linguistic finesse proved a sturdy foundation. 

Adam’s unrestrained creative thinking and refreshing perspectives are punctuated by jaw dropping visual illusions and mind blowing mental deceptions. His work not only inspires people to make a positive change, it arms them with the tools to do so.
