Sparking Magic in Your Team and Business

Hi, I’m John Guastaferro. As an award-winning marketing professional and worldwide performer in the magical arts, I focus on connecting teams to the extraordinary! I infuse years of business expertise with entertainment to captivate teams, boards and leadership groups. Whether it’s a keynote, board retreat, corporate offsite, or strategic planning retreat,  I spark magic in teams and in business. These are not your ordinary staff development trainings. They are definitely not boring or ordinary. Endless slides are replaced with visually compelling insights. Monologues are replaced with interactive entertainment.

Take for instance a recent training in Decatur, Illinois. I led a 3-hour training with a nonprofit board and leadership staff about building a culture of philanthropy. It was refreshingly engaging by infusing live magic to highlight salient topics. I’m also honored to be a featured presenter at the 2018 NAYDO Conference on YMCA Philanthropy in New Orleans in April 2018. With over 1,500 attendees, this is one of the largest conferences in the nation promoting the great work of YMCAs and fundraising professionals. The topic of my 90-minute experience will be: “The Magic of Fundraising: Connecting People to the Extraordinary.”

I focus on creating immersive and enjoyable learning experiences that accomplish three goals: Educate, Entertain, and Energize.

  • Educate: Share expert tips and practical tools that can be put into place immediately
  • Entertain: Highlight complex topics and engage groups through amazing magic
  • Energize: Motivate and inspire teams to become purpose-driven leaders
