About the Performers
Passionate about magic from a young age, Sheldon Casavant honed his skills at the McBride Magic and Mystery School in Las Vegas and later graduated from the prestigious Chavez Studio of Magic in La Verne, California.
Now in his mid 20s, Sheldon is one of Canada's most highly sought after performers, with a repertoire of magic that is contemporary, fun, and highly interactive.
He has toured internationally in Mexico, Panama, China, and Japan. In 2005, he performed 630 shows over 9 months, at the New Akao Hotel in Atami, Japan. Sheldon was nominated in 2009 and 2010 as Entertainer of the Year by the Canadian Events Industry and was selected to perform at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. More recently, he wrote the illustrated children's book, Morton the Magician and His Magnificent Magic Show.
If there's one thing peak performance experts like Wayne Lee agree on, it's that the mind is capable of leading us anywhere. He also knows that for many of us, our minds are littered with detours, potholes and accidents waiting to happen.
Fear,self-doubt, inhibitions of all kinds, these beliefs reside in our subconscious and prevent us from reaching our conscious goals. But if you set your GPS (Great Programmable Subconscious) for success, you can achieve anything while taking the ride of your life.
Wayne's own journey to excellence was fueled with an unrelenting passion for entertaining and empowering people. From a childhood fascination with magic and visualization, Wayne's gift for seeing and acting on what's possible has grown to international proportions: He is one of North America's premier corporate presenters, a veteran of thousands of successful shows, a published author, and peak performance coach to professionals of all walks of life.
And he's practiced what he preaches. Wayne is a former five-time Canadian amateur wrestling champion, who also served as a beloved classroom instructor before taking the stage in the corporate world. More recently, he was named "Entertainer of the Year" for the Canadian Events Industry.
