Steve Wicks Event Organiser
Illusion Show/Launch Event
"What a show, what a performer, what a team! From the manager Keith, who was a genuine pleasure to work with and took away any issues, to the stage hands who were all ultra-professional and totally committed to delivering an outstanding performance, everything was brilliantly handled.
And then there was Sean and his truly mind-blowing performance. A delight to work with, and everything was geared to our requirements. When we said we wanted our VIP guests to see something they will never have seen before, we had no idea that you would not only do this, but go way beyond even our expectations!
The main show was truly spectacular - the speed of the illusions was simply incredible and our 600 guests were absolutely dumbstruck! Even more impressive was the scale of the show - one amazing illusion followed instantly by another, and another, and another - it left you reeling! To be honest, this part of the show alone was worth every penny and left the crowd awestruck. But then the finale - making a Porsche appear on stage in front of our guests - wow! As a finale, it is hard to think of anything that could have topped that, absolutely stunning, and one of the finest illusions any of us had ever seen.
We have received hundreds of emails from our guests, most of whom made particular reference to Sean's outstanding performance. It was an event that will be talked about for many years to come, and on behalf of Jacksons Isle of Man, we cannot thank you enough.
Spellbinding, one of the great showmen of our time."
Sarah Easey Event Manager
"Firstly, working with Sean and his team is really simple. From the initial enquiry and telephone discussion a proposal was quickly provided that understood the requirements of the client and served to show the professionalism from start to finish.
A meeting with the client with Sean and Keith meant that they too were involved and had the opportunity to input into Sean’s show.
A pre production meeting at the venue (The Grosvenor in London) resulted in a couple of changes to Sean’s show (the fire element was not allowed) but Sean was able to suggest excellent alternatives for consideration.
The show was amazing; a truly brilliant and magical performance that included audience interaction and kept them guessing how the impossible had been performed. This was a show of the highest quality and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sean Alexander and his amazing team.
They are true professionals and his magic and illusions are truly mind blowing.

Rachelle Cornell Head of Marketing & Events
"We hired the Illusionist Sean Alexander and his team to provide us with after dinner entertainment for our annual Investor conference. Our Chief Executive had seen Sean performing earlier in the year and was very impressed.
This was the first time we had used magic at any of our events and I’m delighted to say that the show was great and very well received by our clients. Sean even stayed late into the evening entertaining our clients with his incredible magic!
Sean is very personable and nothing was too much trouble. He was a delight to deal with from start to finish and was very helpful in providing solutions to arising problems and some logistical issues we initially had.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sean and look forward to being able to work with him on a future event."

"Sean Alexander is a very professional and impressive magician. I found him to be very personable and interested in DAF Trucks Ltd. Sean's aptitude and creativeness in being able to deliver our corporate messages interpreted through his magical performance, is second to none."
Mr A Klein Bar Mitzvah Party
"Sean - as we land back down to earth, I just wanted to say a very big personal "thank you" on behalf of Gayle & I for making our weekend so incredibly special.
As I told you (being a perfectionist) I am not the easiest person to please - but please us you did - and in spades. When we decided to have Sam's Bar Mitzvah party we wanted to have something extra special for him to enjoy and I'm pleased to say that both he - and everyone else - agreed that you "hit the spot" perfectly - with the show being every bit as good as we could have wanted. So - a huge thank you again to you and to your team for all your hard work. You all surpassed yourselves in every way - and for that we are more grateful than words can say.
As for Keith's email and attachment below - I (aka Craig Revel Horwood) am happy that you should score yourself a perfect 10 on all questions!"
Julie Roblin Events & Marketing
"We recently hired Sean Alexander to perform at our Sales Conference at the ICC in Birmingham to enhance our “magic” theme. The performance was amazing and the audience was completely mystified.
Not only did he and his team conduct a faultless and spectacular show on the performance day, but their understanding and flexibility of our requirements for rehearsals proved that they are true professionals with the customer as their number one priority.
The respect, patience and personal time that they provided to us prior to the show displayed true dedication to their performance, a strong pride in the excellence of their work and the desire to meet our exact requirements without a flicker of doubt.
Not only did they meet our requirements, they exceeded them! They made a huge impression and there will be no hesitation in booking them again. No other illusionist will do - we’ve found the best!"

"Many thanks for your considerable efforts on our behalf when entertaining our dealers and their customer guests on the three recent Orient Express train excursions in the UK.
All three trips proved to be a maor success and we did not have one single cry-off! Whilst the quality of the Orient Express is a given, there is no question whatsoever that the high quality and mesmerising entertainment you provided added considerable value to the whole experience for our guests and made each trip so much more memorable for them.
Many thanks for providing such a thoroughly entertaining and professional contribution to our recent events"

"A note to thank you very much for the entertainment you provided at our party.
Your Dedication to ensuring our guests had a 'magical' time was much appreciated and you walked the line effortlessly between providing entertainment and acting with professionalism.
The very positive feedback we received following the party included the wonderful comment "How that conjurer did his stuff, I simply can't devine: very impressive!"
Thank you again and we send our best wishes for the future."
Karen Nicholls Director
Cabaret Illusion Show
"Sean and his assistant Vanessa gave my corporate clients a jaw-dropping show as the climax to their annual conference. They performed unbelievable illusions right in front of our eyes. I knew that there were no trap doors in the stage because I was responsible for erecting the staging, so how they created their illusions is truly astonishing.
From an organisers point of view Sean was very easy to work with prior to the event, he was very clear as to what he needed but was able to be very flexible to accomodate the size and facilities in the hotel suite.
I highly recommend him."

Kevin Davy European Sales Manager
Brand Messaging Magic
"We recently hired Sean to work on our exhibition stand at the Euro Bus Expo at the NEC in Birmingham to attract visitors to our stand and generate leads for us.
We found Sean to be completely professional in his approach and had a complete and thorough understanding about our company and products which he was able to deliver and inform to a high standard in his presentation.
We had very positive feedback both from existing clients and new prospects and Sean was able to generate the new leads we were looking for.
Sean was also able to tie in one of our products into his presentation by building a custom illusion specifically for one of our air filters which was very well received by the audiences.
The show went extremely well for us with the stand being continually busy throughout the 3 days; in our show brief it was concluded that this show was the best we had ever had resulting in significant increased sales orders.
I can say without hesitation that Sean Alexander was a valuable asset to us and would have no reservations about recommending his services to others. We will most definitely be looking to use Sean at our next trade show."

One Man Mind Show
"Hi Sean, I just want to say a huge thanks for putting on a fantastic show at my wife's 30th birthday party at the weekend. It was the talking point of the weekend and many of the guests thought you were the best magician/mentalist they had ever seen!
I would not hesitate to recommend you to all."
Mrs L Mills 50th Birthday Party
One Man Mind Show
"Hi Sean; Just wanted to say a big thank you for keeping all our 20 guests entertained and mystified at my 50th birthday last week.
You quickly captured the attention of those present and discussions went on long after you had gone as to how yo were able to hide objects in locked boxes and make cinema cards appear, not to mention playing Russian Roulette with a four inch spike!
For me the 67 Numbers calculations were exceptional - you should be hosting COUNTDOWN!
Professional and friendly throughout the evening you are a great asset to any event big or small and certainly made the weekend one not to be forgotten.
Many thanks for everything."
