Paul Nathan Magic



Acer Labs

San Francisco Bay Area office of Acer Labs hired Paul to magically create a feeling of excitement in their trade show booth in Las Vegas. The message was less important to them then just having a big crowd that was having fun. They got more than they bargained for. The magic show brought in unexpected business. Watch the video below to see how Paul mixed magic, and message together for an exciting presentation that truly demonstrated the capabilities of one of their video chips.




Alcatel is France's largest telephone company and one of the top telecommunications companies in the world, Alcatel brought Paul from San Franciscol to Paris where he used his magic to demonstrate the power of unified IP communication at their annual sales conference.

This show was different because the presentation was put together by Testbeeld, a Belgian production company for Alcatel a French company. The script was written for a French telephone company by a German TV writer for a San Francisco magician, so it is unlike anything else Paul has ever done. Paul worked with them to integrate the message and the magic. Notice that there are not a lot of jokes and the tone is all business.


Before Alteon was purchased by Cisco Systems, they had Paul develop a trade show presentation which taught people how IP routing is done. Paul's magic was the perfect tool for communicating what they do. They tripled their lead count the first day.
