How Do You Choose The Psychological Mind Reader For Your Event?

April 13th, 2012 by Kennedy

When hiring any kind of entertainment there are some things to consider, not all of which are as obvious as you might think. Here’s some tips to help you out in choosing your event entertainment, in particular when engaging the services of a psychological mind reader.

1. See Them Perform

The best way of judging without a doubt is to see the performer in action, in the flesh. If they perform public shows, it’s worth asking if you’re able to get some tickets to come along and experience what it’s like to be in one of their audiences.

Often though, public shows are not available, however on occasion I’ve personally been able to speak to a regular client of mine with whom I have a good long-standing relationship, to get permission for a potential client to come along and enjoy the show too.

If neither of these options are available, an online video will do the trick. Rather than a physical DVD, it’s far efficient for you to ask for a link to watch a video online. First of all it saves time in you having to wait for it to arrive through the mail, but it also means that you can share the link tot he video with several people at the same time to get their opinions, and it’s less easy to lose (not that you would, of course).

You won’t get the full experience from a video in the same way you would if you’d been able to expeirence them live. In particular my own show is very much experiential so being ‘in the room’ is where it’s really at. So when viewing the promotional DVD of any performer or entertainer you should be looking for things that ‘turn you off’ as oppose to things you like.

The reason for this (according to the agents I work with) is that it’s hard to really get emotionally involved and experience a live performance that now appears on tape, since it’s designed as a live performance not as a DVD or television act. However you are able to spot anything that might cause alarm bells to chime, such as their style not fitting with what you have planned.

2. What Do REAL Past Clients Say?

Just as, if not more important than seeing the potential entertainer perform, is to speak to their past clients and get a fully rounded opinion of what those who have invested in their services in the past, really think.

There are a few ways to do this.

  • Look for written testimonials/quotes from past clients. These might be on their website and/or in their promotional materials.
  • Video testimonials. These should be found on the websites of most professional entertainers. I’m personally a fan of having them as part of a promotional video to keep them interesting and ‘arty’.
  • Speak to them. Ask the entertainer if they have the telephone number of a past client or two that you could call to talk to them about their experience working with you. And actually call them.

3. Easy To Contact

An often overlooked point that can be the cause of major headaches for you as a booker.

Once the booking is placed with your entertainer you want to be able to easily pick up the phone or drop an email for a speedy response. It’s important that you have a number of contact points. For example, is there someone you can speak to even when the entertainer is out of the country, on stage performing or traveling? Do you have the entertainer’s direct mobile telephone number? What about email addresses too, both for them and someone else who can help you?

It’s advisable to work with professional entertainers who have some level of administrative support because this leads to faster responses for any queries or changes you might like to make.

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw
