“Hi John

Many thanks for doing your stuff on Thursday. We had finished a quite intensive conference day and wanted to be able to relax and build relationships in the evening. Your close-up magic helped create this atmosphere and added some fun to the evening. Also, I have to say, some mystery as well!”

Best wishes, Charles Dodwell
