HED: Bring the magic to virtual meetings

By Bill Gallagher

What do you do when your whole industry has been challenged? How do you make a pivot and think out of the box and adapt? Today’s guest shares how he’s taken his very physical business model online!

 Dan Chan is an award-winning Master Magician, where his talents have taken him all over the world. Dan is regarded as one of the nation’s top corporate magicians, meaning he works in an industry that’s been affected lately. How is he managing to keep up with the changing times? By practicing in something called ‘Zoom magic’!

Dan invested 20-plus years of his life learning magic and when the pandemic hit, he was depressed. He did what most people do and binge-watched Netflix. He thought his career was over and it was maybe time to get a day job. Some of his existing clients asked if he’d be willing to do a virtual show, but not wanting to disappoint anyone, he decided to start off small and work his way up from there.

To find out what he’s learned about making Zoom meetings better, listen to Scaling Up coach Bill Gallagher’s interview with Dan Chen on the Scaling Up Business Podcast
