Description

Join Matt Pritchard for a workshop on how to develop a magical mindset!

In this class you will learn some of the techniques and thinking magicians use to overcome the impossible, spark the imagination and create the remarkable. Whether you're looking for personal development or ideas for your business, this session will provoke your thinking and provide practical tools to make magic. Mixing insights from the worlds of magic, psychology, science/engineering and behavioural economics you will learn:

  • The ingredients of an innovator
  • Why misdirection is the key to magic
  • How swans and vegetables can make a better business


All you need to do to take part is book a place via Eventbrite and bring a notebook and pen with you!

About Trade School

The Trade School network is a collective of self-organised barter-for-knowledge schools across the world. Trade School began in January 2009 as an experiment by a group of artists in New York City who wanted to celebrate local wisdom, mutual respect, and the social nature of exchange.

Trade School Digbeth is a local chapter of this initiative driven by the Impact Hub Birmingham community and friends. For more info and other upcoming Trade School classes, click here.
