Corporate Keynote Speaker – Business Meets Magic

Alex Blackwood has 20 years experience in corporate finance, sales and IT management. Combine that with his status as one of Europe’s leading mentalists and you have a corporate keynote speaker without parallel. Elegant stories are weaved, taking your audience on an interactive journey from where they are right now to where you want them to go. An expert in human behaviour, psychology and a born entertainer, Alex is in high demand as a keynote speaker. Sharing his time between beautiful Amsterdam and Ibiza, he frequently travels the world delivering talks on a variety of subjects. His passions include technology, Artificial Intelligence and growth mindset but like all his performances, the keynote speech structure Alex employs is specifically designed to be flexible and adapt to most subjects and themes. Engaging, amazing and unforgettable are some of the words frequently used to describe his talks.

Corporate Experience Is Key

Alex’s corporate career includes management roles at Royal Dutch Shell, Deutsche Telecom and Globecall Telecommunications where he was a founder. He has since continued his entrepreneurial track with blockchain startups and entertainment businesses. One of these, the Amsterdam Magic Show, has played to sold-out audiences for the last two years. Alex is co-founder and frequently headlines.

Apart from the real-world experience he brings, Alex’s key to success in speaking is understanding his client’s business. As with all his performances, Alex sets out to deliver his clients’ message in the most interesting and memorable way possible.
