Speaking Business.
Sparking Magic.


Hi, I’m John Guastaferro. I believe we all have the power to connect people to the extraordinary! But how? It starts by connecting the power of your Team, Brand & Cause.


As a professional magician and branding strategist, I weave business know-how and mind-blowing magic to inspire teams. From keynotes to corporate offsites, I focus on creating leadership experiences that educate, entertain, and energize.

Meet John

Welcome to One Degree Connect. I’ve dedicated my career to growing brands, advancing causes, and building strong teams. Beyond the business world, I am a global speaker and professional magician, inspiring thousands of people across ten countries.


We all have the power to connect people to the extraordinary! I help professionals get there by bringing three core areas into powerful alignment: Team, Brand, and Cause.

The One Degree Difference

At One Degree Connect, I help you uncover pivotal one degree strategies to connect the power of team, brand, and cause. Just as heating water from 211 to 212˚ takes it to the boiling point, even a one degree shift can create extraordinary possibilities. It’s a topic I cover extensively in my book One Degree, and in my travels across ten countries. Success is closer than we think…just one degree away.

Spark Magic In Your Team, Brand & Cause


Today’s consumers are looking for more than great products or services. They want to feel connected to you, your brand promise, and your social values. That’s why it’s so important to align the power of TEAM, BRAND & CAUSE.


These areas must do more than coexist—them must be synergistically connected. This propels you to gain a strategic advantage in business and a deeper connection with your clients and community.
