Powerful Attention Getters and Teaching Tools That
Will Powerfully Seize the Attention of Your Audience
What is the
single biggest problem faced by every meeting planner that
brings in a speaker or sends employees out to a conference
or training seminar? It is a proven fact that most of
what we hear cannot be remembered just 3 days later. A study
was done by the United States Air Force that showed that the
average person forgets 96% of what we hear in 72 hours.
Saldan's Motivational Magic completely demolishes that problem by
creating a dramatically unique learning environment where all of the main key
points can be easily recalled weeks and months later. How is
that even possible? By stimulating a highly charged
emotional state of mind through amazement, fun, laughter and
pure child-like wonder, the people who attend Rick's events
can remember just about everything he did and said. You can
try this a week after the event by picking some of the
participants at random and discreetly ask them a few
questions to see how much of the information they taught can
still be recalled. Try it out and see for yourself! You just
can't lose when our results are guaranteed!
What is Motivational Magic?
How Can Motivational Magic Benefit
You and Your Audience?
worked as a corporate trainer
in his earlier career, he was often asked to go out and
evaluate some of the other instructors on his team. He saw
speakers have very rich content, but their delivery is low
key, dull and uninspiring (the "boring professor" type).
Other speakers have a strong level of energy, but their
content is very thin and shallow (the "rah rah" speakers).
Both types of speakers end up giving you an average to low
return on your investment. The end result might be good....
but not great. As a result of those early years of being
sent out to assess and evaluate other trainers and
instructors, Rick developed a keen desire to always hunt for
ways that speakers could make greater impact on their
listeners on a consistent basis. This journey eventually
lead Rick to create the concept of Motivational Magic.
So how is
Motivational Magic so different from the rest? What make
Motivational Magic so special? First created
by Rick in 1997, Motivational Magic is the concept of using
theatrical magic as a teaching tool that dramatically
improves the ability for an audience to remember everything
being taught at your conference, seminar or special event.
that you get a motivational speaker guaranteed to captivate,
entertain and inspire your audience.
Motivational Magic events, Rick employs numerous theatrical
magic effects to serve both as an attention getter to keep
the audience on the edge of their seats, as well as a
teaching tool to highlight the message for each learning
concept. This is how your program serves your audience to be
both educational and fun at the same time. The magic varies
from hilarious comedy that will have the room roaring with
laughter, to utter amazement where your audience will be
talking about it for weeks trying to figure out how in the
world the magic effects could have been done.

illusions tie in with an the teaching component. This is
Rick's secret to imprinting a valuable life lesson in the
minds and hearts of people in the audience. Rick
traveled throughout the country, training with some of the
top illusionists in the nation to find the best possible
demonstrations that create a deep sense of awe and
amazement. Some of Rick's specialized theatrical magic
effects and stage illusions include making doves appear from
thin air, a parrot that does card tricks, the famous bullet
catch and more!
