As an experienced keynote speaker, Vinh Giang knows that what transpires on stage is not about him. It’s 100% about the audience. It’s about the life-changing lessons he’s been so fortunate to learn along the way and sharing them in a manner that transforms people. That’s where magic happens.
My family are refugees from Vietnam. They arrived in Australia in 1981, March 31st. My dad has always shared with me a simple concept – life is a miracle. He used to tell me:
“Son, do you know how ridiculous it is that you are alive? If your mother or I died in the war, you wouldn’t be here. If your grandparents didn’t meet, you wouldn’t be here. Heck, lets take it back 50,000 generations. If a cave man ate a poisonous fruit and died, that’s our entire bloodline vanished from this earth.. It took millions of years of serendipitous events for you to be here, and now that you are here, you are alive for 80 years on average. When you compare how long it took for you to get here versus how long you are here for.. it’s like you are alive for 1 minute. It’s a privilege to be alive. In this life of yours,remember to do what you love and jump as high as you can in life. As long as I am alive, I will forever be your net.”
That right there is why I have achieved the things I have in life and why I have become the man I am today – Family. My drive to jump as high as I can in life comes from my family.
All through my childhood, I watched my family build and grow businesses. They built; farms, grocery stores, take away diners, pharmacies and even commercial property. By the time I hit 13, I had all the entrepreneurial characteristics embedded deep in me. It was the year 2000 when eBay first started to become popular, and I remember buying so many different things from there and selling them to my friends for double the price! Needless to say, I didn’t have too many friends. Not only this, I moved schools a total of 4 times. This happened because some of the kids wouldn’t pay me after they bought music players from me, and I would then give the bully some money to rough them up a little.
Long story short, I made it to university and studied accounting. With only 6 months left to go in my degree, I came home and told my parents I was going to quit and build a business on the internet to teach magic…. This is when things get really interesting! But I guess you’ll have to wait for the keynote 🙂
Anything is possible.
People often ask how I got into magic. I usually just give a quick reply, but it’s only because I don’t want to bore people to death with my long story… But I will bore you here! HA!
My whole magic journey began to really gain traction after I had a moment where the penny dropped and I finally understood what Robert Houdin (amazing magician) meant when he said:
“A magician is an actor playing the part of the magician.”
After Vinh Giang began to understand the meaning behind this quote, I focused all my energy on studying the art of performance and not presentation. This is where my journey began.
When you are eager for an event with WOW power. Mesmerizing messages that spark electrified engagement with your audience. Empowering connection to the speaker, story, and enlightening strategies. What you need – is a Keynote Speaker who can literally read people with extraordinary accuracy. A Magician. A Showman. A Storyteller. What you need is Vinh Giang.
“Collaboration is the key to success.”
With this topic, Vinh presents the audience with several magic performances, and invites them to offer their solutions as to how they were done. In going through this process, the audience learns quickly that perspective is the key to solving any problem. After all, magic is just a problem that the general public do not have the solution to. While it may appear complicated, remember that magic tricks are problems specifically designed to never be solved. Now if you can get even a small insight into how to solve magic tricks, imagine the clarity you will take into the other problems in your business and personal lives. Magicians are great problem solvers: it’s a skill they inherit as a result of learning such a secretive art.
“Rather a mind opened by wonder, than one closed by negative beliefs.”
This is by far Vinh’s most popular talk, in which he performs and speaks about the five different areas of magic, and then links this seamlessly to psychology. When the audience can see the psychological deception taking place in magic, they will be able to immediately see the deception we create within our own business and personal lives. This keynote will dispel negative beliefs and empower your audience to believe that anything in life is possible.
“You are the direct reflection of the top 5 people you spend time with.”
In this presentation, Vinh takes you exclusively behind the scenes and shows you how magicians are able to influence their spectators in an incredible way. It is through this demonstration that Vinh asks the question: “Who is influencing you in your life”‘ and “Are your decisions really your own?” Vinh will demonstrate techniques on blocking out negative influence, and gaining and maintaining a positive mind set. Imagine just for a moment that you “got up on the right side of the bed” every single day for the next three months. How would that change your life? How would that change your business? Mindset is everything.
“It’s not what you see that counts, it’s how you choose to look at it.”
Misdirection is one of the most important aspects of the art of magic. Through a visual demonstration, Vinh takes the audience through a series of magic effects to show them how easily one can be misled. Vinh then takes you deep inside the psychology behind the art of magic to show and prove to the audience that your negative beliefs, no matter what they are, do not exist. Vinh will show your audiences how to overcome misdirection in life and business. With this mindset, audiences will realise that there are no limits to what they can achieve. It is only with this mindset that magicians are able to create magic. Let Vinh help you and your team create magic with what you do in business!
“People will forget what you said or did, but never how you made them feel.”
Re-energise your sales team by having them witness Vinh perform a spectacular feat of magic, followed by a personal insight into the “behind the scenes” of the effect. Vinh Giang reminds us all that every encounter is a performance, and the importance of always giving it your all. This applies to every interaction throughout your day, but most particularly when it is a sales encounter; because no matter how many times we have done something, we need to remember that the person on the receiving end is experiencing it for the first time, and we need to make sure it is the best experience possible. This is a crucial point of self reflection that is deeply empowering, which the audience will always remember.
“How can you hope to hit a target you cannot see? Let alone a target you do not have?”
For every show that Vinh Giang performs, it is crucial that it goes according to plan, because the margin for error in magic is very narrow. When achieving the impossible, it is all the more important that the goals for each act are identified and established well beforehand. There is no better way to illustrate this concept than to prove to the audience through a feat of seemingly impossible magic that the events of the entire show were prepared before it even began.
Anything is Possible
“Your beliefs dictate your actions.”
Magic is an art that is created to demonstrate the impossible. The beautiful thing about this is that the very nature of magic shows us that things that are seemingly impossible can be made to happen. Vinh highlights this concept by first accomplishing an immensely impressive feat, and follows this by walking the audience through how this seemingly impossible feat was actually achieved. Through several powerful exercises, Vinh is able to break down the barriers that we have in our minds, which hold us back from accomplishing truly amazing things. As cliché as it may come across to begin with, the undeniable fact that Vinh Giang demonstrates right before our very eyes proves that anything is indeed possible. Definitely a key finishing statement to the audience that leaves them on an extremely high note.
