THE MAGICAL MOTIVATOR

Biography

Rick Rossini is the original Magical Motivator! He is an internationally renowned magician and illusionist, a powerful and dynamic speaker and writer, an incredible entertainer, an amazing communicator and promotional consultant, and one of the most creative entrepreneurs around! Simply put, he creates “real magic!”

Making “Magic Wagons” appear out of thin air for Chrysler, designing a unique opening and hosting Microsoft’s ATEC conference, producing a customized awards and entertainment spectacular for IBM, presenting a custom designed, closing keynote for Investors Group, devising a complete conference for The Canadian Produce & Marketing Association, and creating international promotions for American Standard, are just some of his magic.

Yes, Rick Rossini has expertly redefined and refined the art of putting the magic into a message, the passion into education, and the pizzazz back into the presentation. He makes both spectacular entertainment AND dynamic presentations truly cost effective for many different types of audiences.

Corporations and associations who want to focus on new, different and exciting entertainment need look no further! Rossini creates powerful and very unique shows for awards, conventions, client appreciation events, featured presentations and galas.

But what if you require a much more informative event, one that will educate, inspire and motivate? Here Rick will work with your specific ideas, products and concepts to design creative presentations that provide real impact for meetings, conferences, promotions, special events and product launches. In all cases the amount of entertainment and information is defined by your needs.

However there is another side, with even greater benefits, to Rick Rossini’s special magic. It’s the motivational and educational potential.

A graduate of McMaster University where he studied Psychology, Rick has built upon his scholastic achievements and coupled this with his many years of personal development research. The end results are powerful, and entertainingly educational presentations on how we can work our own real magic, in both our business and our day to day lives. Whether customized for a specific message, conference lead in or convention wrap up, these speeches, seminars and special presentations are innovative and refreshing!

But perhaps the best part is how all the elements, “the education and entertainment”, come together to create a very unique, total picture. From a complete conference package or meeting hosting, to a keynote wrap up with a dynamic closing; magic and message can seamlessly combine into one.

This approach has repeatedly proven to be extremely beneficial for corporations, associations and organizations realizing the importance of learning and communicating in new and different ways. It has also been personally rewarding, helping and working with some very special organizations such as The United Way, The Muscular Dystrophy Association, and The Special Olympics; all to help discover and unleash the magic within.

Inspire, excite, entertain, educate and motivate! Be a part of the magic as Rossini works with your audience to make real magic happen for your next event!

REAL MAGIC – The Magic Within

THE MAGIC IS YOU

“Imagine some very special, powerful and unique presentations that set the stage, and truly help sell the practical and entertaining aspects of your entire meeting, conference and convention!”

REAL MAGIC – The Magic Within & THE MAGIC IS YOU provide us with themes to do just that. Positive themes that can be extended throughout the entire meeting, and all of its events, to create a truly seamless, memorable and motivational experience.

It dynamically opens your conference! Imagine an EXPLOSIVE CUSTOMIZED OPENING! A spectacular multimedia production that combines graphics, special effects, illusion, choreography, magic, lights and staging for the ultimate effect! Dynamic and entertaining it will set up the theme of the conference and “magically reveal” your first speaker for opening remarks!

It builds throughout your meeting as they become your special host…

  • segueing between your speakers and presenters for maximum impact
  • presenting relevant “vignettes and pieces” to uniquely facilitate your presentations and key ideas
  • creating perfect theme symmetry, impact and attention for each event,
  • maintaining maximum retention levels in a fun, yet connective way,
  • tying it all together with our keynote address, THE MAGIC WITHIN,

and in general providing a smooth, unique, uplifting flow throughout the entire conference and business sessions. One that inspires, excites, entertains, educates and motivates!

Rick and his team can also use their special magic to seamlessly coordinate and interact with all aspects of your events! Your advance advertising, printed matter and hand outs, concurrent trade show, multimedia presentations, and overall planning and production can all be tied into your conference theme. They can share your story in a manner your audience will soon not forget.

This positive theme is extended into the evening’s dinner, award show and entertainment with REAL MAGIC! The ultimate, entertainment experience that you and your audience become a part of.

In the grand style of Lance Burton, David Copperfield and Siegfried and Roy, choreographed illusions occur on the stage, on the dance floor, and right in the audience. Magic, music, comedy, dance, theatre, special effects, lights, sound and illusion perfectly blend to conjure a mystifying, entertaining and extremely relevant spectacle. An unbelievable show that is customized to your needs!

While REAL MAGIC – The Magic Within & THE MAGIC IS YOU have been designed as a complete packages, they are also available in individual modular and creative formats, and in different sizes. The magic, motivation, shows, keynote address, technology, creative process and special effects are also available as separate and customized items. Thus you could utilize a few items to enhance your regular conference, create your own theme, or design your own evening.
THE MAGICAL MINI CONFERENCE PACKAGE

This program was designed as a special “magical get away package” for smaller conferences and Company meetings. The premise was to combine an informative and relevant wrap up keynote with a unique night before / arrival entertainment package, and other meeting add-ons to create a “WOW” experience at a “cost effective price”.

The night before entertainment session has a complete décor package including amazing magic décor, giant props, posters, magical displays, and special effects that fill the entire room. The décor not only acts as a point of interest and conversation (and starts to subtly reinforce our “magic within” theme), but also sets the stage for our close up magic to follow. Yes a close-up magician (who can be costumed in a number of different guises) first mingles with the crowd performing close up magic here and there, and then later will perform a mini featured show for the entire room.

The next day the magic continues with some magical segue pieces your presenters can use in their presentations, and then wraps up with one of Rick Rossini’s relevant keynotes customized for the audience, followed by a special meeting Closing illusion. The end result is a very complete, customizable package that can add real “magic, message and value” to almost any smaller, more intimate conference!

Product Launches & Special Promotions…

In the past 30 years we have either magically produced and/or been involved in the magical introduction of hundreds of new products and services. They have ranged in size and shape from a new deodorant stick to a full sized automobile, and in industries from computer software to plumbing supplies. In all these PRODUCT LAUNCHES, whether internally targeted to your own sales force or externally targeted to your customers, potential clients and media, one objective has always been the same. That this NEW PRODUCT is truly special and unique!

Add to this strategy energy, excitement, and a unique presentation style that positively reinforces your corporate identity, and you have one of the key benefits of our MARKETING MAGIC!

Working with your experts we find out as much as we can about your new product or service, your objectives, strategy, positioning, corporate identity and marketing plan, and then devise a specific, magical presentation that will achieve your goals. It could be having your product or a giant replica appear out of thin air. It could contain magical segments that will illustrate your product’s benefits. It could involve creating impact by having your brand manager magically appear. It could be a short special effect designed for attention during your business meeting or be a complete show that would highlight not only your new product but also your corporate identity.

In all cases our special magic can be used to create impact and attention, entertain and educate, and then inspire, excite and motivate. All designed to set your NEW PRODUCT APART!

Customized Meetings...

All meetings have three things in common; the need to communicate, the need to motivate, and people. Now more than ever it is imperative that you effectively inform and inspire your people. Our magical approach provides a unique method to accomplish just that.

Our magic passionately delivers your message! It also reinforces that your people are special. We are all more than capable of achieving our goals and aspirations. The real key is to truly express this, not just in words or manufactured images, but in real, tangible demonstrations. Real magic. Your magic! You can do so in a number of ways.

1. With MAGIC FX your meeting will gain impact as your special message and product line is presented with all the important points emphasized with magic and illusion. Your speakers, executives and corporate representatives gain impact and attention as each one is magically produced or tied into your overall concept. Each presentation is tailor-made to your individual needs and objectives.

2. As your MAGICAL HOST and FACILITATOR I become your special guide throughout your meeting. I present relevant illusions revolving around your goals and central theme, create impact and attention for each of your presentations, and in general provide a smooth, uplifting flow throughout the entire business session. A flow which uniquely and consistently reinforces the impossible being achieved, and emphasizes your marketing objectives and special message.

3. As your MAGICAL MOTIVATOR I put the focus on fun and motivation, and how we can all really achieve the impossible. How we can all perform our own real magic. This is reinforced by magic, illusion and vignettes from our motivational presentations. Inspirational pieces are interwoven throughout your meeting strengthening our belief and desire in achievement.

All three approaches whether utilized separately, in combination, or in complete packages such as THE MAGIC IS YOU, The Magic OF YOUR COMPANY and REAL MAGIC – The Magic Within, have one powerful benefit in common. They get results! 

Customized Entertainment…

Entertainment is a key factor in every corporate calendar. Internal functions such as awards, galas and special events, and external business functions from client appreciation programs to participatory conventions and conferences can all benefit from our special magic.

The concept of our magic is quite simple: “to create real magic” for social and corporate events! Not just magic as in top hats, rabbits and capes, but a magical experience where the magic is so real you cannot tell illusion from reality. It is an experience that you and your guests become a part of.

However it is not just ROSSINI who performs the impossible. A number of special guests also make an appearance in your creatively choreographed production. Your executives and representatives, award recipients and presenters, and even the magical production out of thin air of your PRESIDENT, can be interwoven into this unique show.

Combine these elements with our creative design, corporate expertise and magician’s bag of tricks and illusions, and you are limited only by your imagination.

That is what really makes this magic so special and unique. It is the corporate customizing that can occur. The creative presence and utilization of corporate identity and products prevails. The result is a unique and captivating experience that you can truly call your own!

Trade Shows…

SHOWMANSHIP! It is in the dictionary next to the word SELLING. Okay so it isn’t, but it should be. Because in today’s competitive market it may not be enough to just “be at the trade show.” You must stand out from the crowd, and more importantly, “stand out from your competitors!”

Trade Show SUCCESS is dependent on three factors. The number of people who visit your booth, the number of people who remember you and your message, and most importantly, the number of people who BUY YOUR PRODUCT!

Over the years we have seen almost every gimmick used to entice potential customers into trade booths. Jugglers, shoe shines, expensive celebrities, robots, free popcorn, you name it. While all were effective in attracting attention, how many really communicated a message? How many actually helped tell a story, or help sell a product?

This is where our special magic can really be of benefit, because nothing builds traffic, AND yet communicates your message, like MARKETING MAGIC! We combine magic, illusion, special effects, audience interaction, and some of the most talented performers you have ever seen with your professional sales presentation. The results are amazing! We weave your personal sales message into a telling – and selling story that has real impact. Every element is tied into your message so your prospects will remember your firm, your product, and your sales story.

We are not interested in having someone stand in your booth and do card tricks. What we do is attract potential customers to your booth, build interest and excitement, communicate your message, and then educate and motivate. We integrate your sales message into a unique customized presentation. This entertaining presentation will combine the key elements of marketing, visual magic and salesmanship for one reason. “To sell, sell, sell!”

We also offer some very unique hospitality suite presentations, booth special effects, and staff preparation packages.

Testimonials

“…I wanted to thank you for your tremendous input in to making ATEC a fantastic success. Whenever you bring together 200+ business managers you always struggle to ensure you have the right agenda. I will tell you “Rossini” was the highlight of our two day seminar. Rick, I believe you have found a fantastic recipe for helping drive real sales success.

From my perspective, I made the following observations…
1) you were responsive and easy to deal with,
2) you listened – you took my business messages and you worked with me to create a custom presentation that drove home and reinforced critical information,
3) you created a positive, energized atmosphere to kick off the two days,
4) you made it easy to create excitement!”

“I wanted to thank you again for the excellent presentation that you put on for us at our National Business Meeting. I have heard from a number of the attendees and they all agree this was one of the best meetings we have ever had. A great deal of the success must be shared with you for helping us to “MAKE THE MAGIC HAPPEN IN 2010”.

I know dealing with the various Brand Managers (who all have their own ideas) can be challenging but you did a masterful job in bringing them and the presentations all together.
Thanks again and I look forward to working together again in the future.”
Larry Matthews
Director, Retail And Regional Account
Energizer Personal Care

“…I must admit when the concept of using magic was first presented, I was a bit apprehensive. I have been a part of many distinctive and original presentations in the past but I knew this one was going to be truly unique, perhaps too much so. Yet, as things began to come together, I quickly realized the ingenuity of such an approach.
Well, if the reaction of our sales force was any indication, we have set a standard that will be very hard to top! Weeks later, I am still receiving comments from the field on how enjoyable this segment of the meeting was and to be perfectly honest that is the key indicator of success – maintaining top-of-mind awareness and commitment from our sales people.
Once again, Rick, thank you for your very important contribution and I look forward one day to working with you again.”
Jim McLarnon
Senior Brand Manager
RHONE-POULENC RORER CONSUMER INC

“…I would personally like to take the opportunity to let you know how pleased we were with your contribution as facilitator at our EDMSP seminars.
As we traveled across Canada presenting at major business centers, your passion and enthusiasm, combined with the magical element, assisted us in presenting our business message in a unique and powerful manner.
Your participation in our effort was equally world class, highly professional and very effective. We would be pleased to offer this as a letter of reference to others who may be considering your services.”

Conferences...

“…We sincerely appreciate your ideas and your response to our needs and your willingness to be flexible to those needs and incorporate them into your presentation.
The success of this conference and your participation in it can be measured most tangibly by the action of our customers which is unprecedented in the 4 years we have undertaking this conference. This year, unlike any previous year, our customers wrote to us and told us how much they appreciated the time and effort that all the people associated with the conference put in.
It was the professionalism of Rossini and all the others who supported us in this production (The Magic Is In You) which resulted in this type of sincere comment. We thank you for this professionalism and we look forward to working with you sometime in the future.”
W. R. (Randy) Webber
Marketing Manager Image Centres
KODAK CANADA INC.

“…I must confess that during the planning of our convention, we wondered aloud amongst ourselves just how our non-professional speakers would get on with your professional entertainers, and soon discovered our fears were unfounded. Your staff were most accommodating and forgiving of our inexperience, and their relaxed attitude helped to alleviate any stage-fright.
Your final night performance was outstanding and your cast delivered all that was promised. Should you have any performances planned for the Toronto area in the near future, please keep me in mind. I would very much enjoy seeing you perform again.
Rick, I would like to express my appreciation for your very constructive and imaginative ideas, and for the professionalism of your operation. You took on the coordination of our three-day convention and all that is required of entertaining 1,000 people, and you showed everyone just how magical Toronto can be in January.”
Wayne Olsen

Product Launches…

“…Our customers and guests were very impressed with the “explosive” launch of our new product, CALLIGO. Your involvement in the process was flawless – from the opening speech, to the show and pyrotechnics you organized, to making our President “appear on stage.”
We had many positive comments from attendees who thought the opening ceremonies were dynamic and innovative. We had ideas, but your additional suggestions added a great deal of value and impact to the event. We would not hesitate to recommend you to other companies who wish to open a conference or launch a new product with “flair.”
Ross Orrett
Vice President, Marketing and Sales
INSYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES INC.

“…On behalf of my associates at American-Standard, and the nearly two thousand customers who attended your shows across Canada, I would like to thank you for your contribution to a very successful product launch.
When we embarked on this program, only six weeks before the first event, we were concerned that even a magician could not stage it for us in such a short time. You met and surpassed the challenge.
Our customers were not only entertained but your effective presentation style conveyed all of the product information we had hoped to impart. The Cadet III launch has been a resounding success. Thank you Rick.”
Norm Livingston
President
AMERICAN STANDARD

“…Thank you for your work in the Ciba-Geigy National Sales Conference. The event was a total success in launching the brand new Eucalyptamint to the sales force.

I hope that we will work together on another project some day.”

Shows…

“…You mystified, you entertained, and you surprised us with an exciting show! Everyone who attended is still talking about the illusions and trying to figure out how it’s done.
Although the whole show was excellent, we particularly appreciated your flexibility and integration of our unique needs. Some at the last minute. Please pass along our thanks and congratulations to the supporting cast and crew – the show was outstanding!”
Ted Munro
Mgr, Compensation Progs & Human Resources

“…We had mentioned to you prior to your performance that you would be facing a tough crowd of about 200 in number. The NDC members tend to be a rather somber conservative group and therefore somewhat unpredictable in their response to any type of entertainment.
You absolutely delighted them!
The comments we received over the next 2 days of the conference following your performance were very rewarding. Everyone enjoyed the show tremendously and complimented DuPont for having provided such a tasteful entertaining closing to the opening NDC reception.”
Fran Griffin

DUPONT CANADA INC.

“…Thank you for your amazing performance at our National Healthcare Conference. Your performance was nothing short of spectacular!
I can honestly say I was a bit nervous, as I was not sure how things were going to turn out.
Your team was able to alleviate that nervousness after the first act! As you could tell from the audience participation and their reaction, they thought you were every bit incredible. Rick, I can’t thank you enough for the great performance!”
Candie Dong

At the end of a very long but fruitful day we were all somewhat fatigued. Your humour, excellent showmanship, and skill combined to impress and delight all in attendance. More than that, you were able to rejuvenate us, and we all left feeling uplifted. Thank you again for having added levity and a positive spin to the day.”
Ron Ballantyne

“…Your initial meeting with us and continued communication prior to the event really paid off. You knew the sensitive issues, understood the intent of each segment of the day and consequently were able to facilitate the day with great success.
I heard many comments from staff regarding your ability to say and do just the right things as though you were part of the agency. In fact you really were that day. Well Rick, what else can I say except thanks again for doing such a great job.”

“…Labelexpo Chicago marks our second successful trade show together featuring ‘The Magic of Colour’ on our Impressionist label press. As in Brussels last year, your talent in drawing customers to our booth and attracting their interest throughout our press job change overs added to the value of generated leads and exhibiting at international trade shows.
We appreciated your keen interest to learn the concept of our machinery and professional script adaptability to feature key points of our product.

I would recommend your services to any company looking for a creative marketing concept to launch or market their product to a selective audience. Our customers smiles, laughter and amazement in your illusions kept them coming back!
Thank you Rick for your professional services and assistance in making our shows an enjoyable and profitable experience.”

“…The success of our show was a result of having the wonder of magic woven into an informative product presentation. I am still delighted by the fact our audience would grow during the presentation instead of ‘disappear’ as other manufacturer’s audience seemed to do. Again, thanks for a superb job.”

“…You solved a problem for us: we had a story to tell – and yet we are aware that speeches from company executives are a yawn.
I was impressed that you understood the story we wanted to tell and managed to weave that story throughout your short but punchy performance.
Our clients left with a clear understanding about the genesis of both YOU and Verve magazines – and the important specifics about the merger. And that message was conveyed in such a magical way, we know it will be remembered.”
