Vinh Giang's passion for magic and self-taught business skills lifted his family out of poverty and into a top tier income bracket. An award-winning entertainer, international speaker, and entrepreneur, he is the co-founder and director of the Encyclopedia of Magic, an online magic school that instructs over 41,000 students per year. Additionally, he is the CEO of Luminary Productions, where he coaches a select few businesses and leaders, teaching them how to compete on an emotional level.

The son of Vietnamese refugees, Giang learned from his parents to take adversity head on. His father worked double shifts at a factory, while his mother and her sisters dedicated every available inch of their yard to farming, so that they could earn extra money selling produce to local supermarkets. Giang quickly embarked on his own ventures, buying things on e-Bay, selling them to classmates for twice as much, and contracting school bullies to collect payments from any customers who owed him money.

Just six months short of completing a degree in accounting, Giang decided to take a leap of faith and do the scariest thing he could imagine; he told his parents that he was giving up school to pursue a career as a magician and entrepreneur. Needless to say, his father was not happy that his son wanted "to be Harry Potter," but after three years of hard work, Giang's magic tutorial website began to take off, winning him the prestigious South Australian Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2013. The business has since joined forces with 52Kards, a leading U.S. based online magic school. Together the the two organizations will instruct an estimated half a million students per year.

In recent years, Giang's speaking career has exploded due to his unique ability to seamlessly interweave the principles of magic, business, and success. He currently spends 80% of his time travelling from continent to continent performing and presenting one-of-a-kind business keynotes about building confidence, boosting presentation skills, facing fears, problem-solving, and pushing limits.

Full Profile

Vinh Giang’s family are refugees from Vietnam. They arrived in Australia in 1981, March 31st. His dad has always shared with him a simple concept – life is a miracle. He used to tell Vinh:

“Son, do you know how ridiculous it is that you are alive? If your mother or I died in the war, you wouldn’t be here. If your grandparents didn’t meet, you wouldn’t be here. Heck, let’s take it back 50,000 generations. If a cave man ate a poisonous fruit and died, that’s our entire bloodline vanished from this earth. It took millions of years of serendipitous events for you to be here, and now that you are here, you are alive for 80 years on average. When you compare how long it took for you to get here versus how long you are here for…it’s like you are alive for 1 minute. It’s a privilege to be alive. In this life of yours, remember to do what you love and jump as high as you can in life. As long as I am alive, I will forever be your net.”

That right there is why Vinh has achieved the things he has in life and why he has become the man he is today – Family. His drive to jump as high as he can in life comes from his family.

All through his childhood, he watched his family build and grow businesses. They built farms, grocery stores, take away diners, pharmacies and even commercial property. By the time he hit 13, he had all the entrepreneurial characteristics embedded deep in him. In the year 2000 when eBay first started to become popular he began buying so many different things from there and selling them to his friends for double the price! Needless to say, he didn’t have too many friends. Not only this, he moved schools a total of 4 times. This happened because some of the kids wouldn’t pay him after they bought music players from him, and he would then give the bully some money to rough them up a little.

The Story of Vinh’s Business

In 2011, Vinh was doing work experience in an accounting firm, and he absolutely hated the job. He was in university not because he wanted to study accounting, but rather he was there because “it was the right thing to do”. He had only 6 months left to go in his degree when he really couldn’t stand it any longer! He knew that once he finished his degree, his family would pull some strings and get him to work in one of the big accounting firms, which really scared him to death. So he built up the courage to quit! And the rest… well, the rest is history now.

He decided that he was going to build an online business teaching magic, combining two of his biggest passions in life: teaching and magic. Teaching was his first preference going into university, but he switched it last minute because he knew that being an accountant was more desirable in his community. Building an online business teaching magic just seemed perfect to him, as he was able to combine two of his biggest passions: teaching and magic. He started the journey with the help of his father who was his only investor and lost everything.

Being an entrepreneur at heart he was pretty quick to solve this problem, but you’ll just have to wait until the presentation to find out how!

Vinh Giang, Magician and Motivational Speaker: TEDxMacquarie University


Award-winning magician and keynote speaker, Vinh Giang demonstrates how to boost your influential powers by taking on a magician's practice routine. Through a series of entertaining tricks, he highlights that master showmanship hinges on a perfect sync of sight and sound, and that anything less can lead to inconsistencies that get between your audience and the message you want to convey.

Giang notes that most people already have the information they need to persuade others, but falter in the presentation because they have never "seen themselves." Even when offered the chance to watch a brief video of themselves speaking, most people turn down the opportunity due to embarrassment or self-consciousness. A magician, however, has little choice, but to record their performance, view it, and review it in order to ensure that their show will hit all the right marks.

"The way a magician practices is truly profound," Giang observes. "If I could share with you this formula today, it would give you an understanding of how to take your presentation ability from where it is to a whole new level."

Speeches / Speaking Engagements Back to top


Master illusionist Vinh Giang uses magic to teach problem-solving, effective presentation skills, and the importance of setting unrealistic goals. The award-winning magician demonstrates how he taps deep into human emotions to create show-stopping moments and inspiration as he illustrates techniques that anyone can use to boost their influence. Firmly based in psychology, Giang's programs reveal just how often we fool ourselves in the real world along with the steps we can take to become magicians of our own industries.

Perspective
"COLLABORATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS."

With this topic, Vinh presents the audience with several magic performances, and invites them to offer their solutions as to how they were done. In going through this process, the audience learns quickly that perspective is the key to solving any problem. After all, magic is just a problem that the general public do not have the solution to.

While it may appear complicated, remember that magic tricks are problems specifically designed to never be solved. Now if you can get even a small insight into how to solve magic tricks, imagine the clarity you will take into the other problems in your business and personal lives. Magicians are great problem solvers: it's a skill they inherit as a result of learning such a secretive art.

Thinking Differently
"RATHER A MIND OPENED BY WONDER, THAN ONE CLOSED BY NEGATIVE BELIEFS."

This is by far Vinh's most popular talk, in which he performs and speaks about the five different areas of magic, and then links this seamlessly to psychology. When the audience can see the psychological deception taking place in magic, they will be able to immediately see the deception we create within our own business and personal lives. This keynote will dispel negative beliefs and empower your audience to believe that anything in life is possible.

Influence
“YOU ARE THE DIRECT REFLECTION OF THE TOP 5 PEOPLE YOU SPEND TIME WITH.”

In this presentation, Vinh takes you exclusively behind the scenes and shows you how magicians are able to influence their spectators in an incredible way. It is through this demonstration that Vinh asks the question: "Who is influencing you in your life"' and "Are your decisions really your own?"

Vinh will demonstrate techniques on blocking out negative influence, and gaining and maintaining a positive mind set. Imagine just for a moment that you “got up on the right side of the bed” every single day for the next three months. How would that change your life? How would that change your business? Mindset is everything.

Misdirection
“IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SEE THAT COUNTS, IT’S HOW YOU CHOOSE TO LOOK AT IT.”

Misdirection is one of the most important aspects of the art of magic. Through a visual demonstration, Vinh takes the audience through a series of magic effects to show them how easily one can be misled. Vinh then takes you deep inside the psychology behind the art of magic to show and prove to the audience that your negative beliefs, no matter what they are, do not exist.

Vinh will show your audiences how to overcome misdirection in life and business. With this mindset, audiences will realise that there are no limits to what they can achieve. It is only with this mindset that magicians are able to create magic. Let Vinh help you and your team create magic with what you do in business!

Showmanship
“PEOPLE WILL FORGET WHAT YOU SAID OR DID, BUT NEVER HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.”

Re-energise your sales team by having them witness Vinh perform a spectacular feat of magic, followed by a personal insight into the “behind the scenes” of the effect. Vinh reminds us all that every encounter is a performance, and the importance of always giving it your all.

This applies to every interaction throughout your day, but most particularly when it is a sales encounter; because no matter how many times we have done something, we need to remember that the person on the receiving end is experiencing it for the first time, and we need to make sure it is the best experience possible. This is a crucial point of self reflection that is deeply empowering, which the audience will always remember.

Goal Setting
“HOW CAN YOU HOPE TO HIT A TARGET YOU CANNOT SEE? LET ALONE A TARGET YOU DO NOT HAVE?”

For every show that Vinh performs, it is crucial that it goes according to plan, because the margin for error in magic is very narrow. When achieving the impossible, it is all the more important that the goals for each act are identified and established well beforehand. There is no better way to illustrate this concept than to prove to the audience through a feat of seemingly impossible magic that the events of the entire show were prepared before it even began.

Anything is Possible
“YOUR BELIEFS DICTATE YOUR ACTIONS.”

Magic is an art that is created to demonstrate the impossible. The beautiful thing about this is that the very nature of magic shows us that things that are seemingly impossible can be made to happen. Vinh highlights this concept by first accomplishing an immensely impressive feat, and follows this by walking the audience through how this seemingly impossible feat was actually achieved.

Through several powerful exercises, Vinh is able to break down the barriers that we have in our minds, which hold us back from accomplishing truly amazing things. As cliché as it may come across to begin with, the undeniable fact that Vinh demonstrates right before our very eyes proves that anything is indeed possible. Definitely a key finishing statement to the audience that leaves them on an extremely high note.



Vinh Giang Speaker Testimonials Back to top

Vinh is the ONLY speaker I've ever booked more than once in my 20 years of association management. First, Hong Kong for 600 people. Then, Los Angeles for a crowd of 3,000. TWO standing ovations. Our local chapter in Australia also booked him as well. Three continents later our membership is still in awe of him, his message -- and his performance. CoreNet Global is honored to have provided the stage for Vinh's inaugural U.S. speaking engagement. The first of many we know.

Vinh inspired, moved and entertained senior-level executives from multinational companies with equal parts authenticity and contagious optimism. Throw in a dash of illusion, a pinch of good humor and a sprinkle of magic and you have the perfect recipe for your next conference. Not only do I highly recommend him, I want to be him!
CEO, CoreNet Global

Vinh oozes enthusiasm and energy and connects with everyone in the room. You can't help but like him.

BDO Australia Limited

WOW! What a great speaker and entertainer for our Business Networking Breakfast.

Flinders Living employed Vinh Giang to speak and perform at our Residential Staff training programme, our Resident Student Club Leaders training programme and at our New Arrivals programme. I was present at all three presentations and was equally enamoured at the third as I was at the first. Vinh is a national living treasure. His performance skills are superb with extraordinary connections being made with all participants in all three contexts. He is a magician in many ways - not only in performing magic itself which is fun, entertaining and has a real 'wow' factor as he bluffs everyone with his skill - but the true magic comes from his ability to use magic is a way of demonstrating to us how erroneous our thinking often is. How we make assumptions that become limiting beliefs and that these then contribute to a half lived life. Every single one of the students who were privileged to watch Vinh opening up opportunities for them was impressed and has continued to discuss what they learned in the intervening weeks. Vinh is so warm and generous and a wizard at making people feel that they are seriously important to him. I cannot recommend him highly enough for sheer entertainment and more so, for his sheer brilliance in encouraging us to rethink our lives and our limitations and to reach for the stars. Australia is a lucky country because Vinh is in it.
Flinders University

All staff were very impressed with the Vinh's ability to engage with audience and the exceptional way he combined magic with message.

Vinh's communication skills are of the highest calibre, and both his on-stage and off-stage presence and energy is captivating. He delivered his material of exceptional quality that was beyond my expectations, and because he is extremely humble, this is what makes him the professional he is.
Tetra Pak

Vinh Giang was just amazing, so easy to talk to and fabulous at performing... but performing with purpose, it wasn't just about 'magic tricks', he really connected with our audience and used his tricks to deliver solid messages.
South Australia Government

Vinh Giang was excellent. He engaged the students and gave them clear and easy to understand messages that they can use throughout the year.
Salisbury East High School

Excellent presentation, Vinh exceeded our expectations and will highly recommend him to other teams within our organisation.
Tafe SA

Vinh has a talent for engaging a large room of people with diverse backgrounds, conveying his points with energy, humour and enthusiasm, and taking people along on the journey with him. I think he can make believers out of the most hardened and sceptical individuals! In all of this, he comes across as a genuine, regular guy with some challenging and thought-provoking ideas to share. All too often speakers can appear mechanical or 'full of their own bluster' for want of a better term. Vinh is nothing like this - he believes what he says and he lives it. His success is proof of that. He's a great speaker and entertainer.
City of Onkaparinga

Vinh was fantastic, met the brief exactly and got a great response from the audience. A great way to end our conference!
Flinders University

Vinh was very engaging. Feedback from the attendees was that they really enjoyed his presentation. I think the fact that it was interactive also created a level of excitement amongst the delegates. I am pretty certain that those that missed out on the breakfast would have been disappointed once they heard the feedback from others. He worked well with the AV team and for me personally he was very easy to deal with, from our first phone call to meeting up early in the morning.
Australian Sonographers Association

Very entertaining and engaging.
Firbank Grammar

Many people were blown away and have requested his details for future speaking roles/jobs.
Community Corporate

This is the second time I have booked Vinh Giang to be a speaker at our Learning to Lead event for high school students, due to demand from the teachers and because Vinh is such a pleasure to work with.

O'Brien Foundation - Hummingbird Ambassadors

Dear Vinh,
Just a quick note to thank you for your participation in this year's Community Bank®national conference. Once again you have not only given our delegates the chance to say ‘WOW' but I've had direct feedback from delegates who have not only taken your messages of perception, belief and influence back to their local communities but are implementing some of your strategies. The ‘crabs in the pot' story told so eloquently by you has left its mark on many of us. I know there are many who have actively identified those five key, positive people in their lives and cut loose those dragging them down to the bottom of the pot – so to speak. Look out those people in our communities who don't make our five positive people list!

Seriously, your mix of magic and business experience along with your immense skill in telling a story and encouraging people to believe in themselves and their ability was exactly what was needed at this year's conference, particularly as our theme was Together we are Bigger. As a corporate entity with 310 community partners, it's easy to fall into an us (Bendigo Bank the corporate entity) versus them (individual communities) mentality. And vice versa. Your presentation reinforced that yes, we're all in this together. Individually we can achieve great things but together, we can achieve even greater things.

Thank you for your messages, your magic, your professionalism, your enthusiasm and your humour.
Community Banking - Bendigo Bank

It is only with this mindset that magicians are able to create magic. Let Vinh help you and your team create magic with what you do in business!

Showmanship
“PEOPLE WILL FORGET WHAT YOU SAID OR DID, BUT NEVER HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.”

Re-energise your sales team by having them witness Vinh perform a spectacular feat of magic, followed by a personal insight into the “behind the scenes” of the effect. Vinh reminds us all that every encounter is a performance, and the importance of always giving it your all.

This applies to every interaction throughout your day, but most particularly when it is a sales encounter; because no matter how many times we have done something, we need to remember that the person on the receiving end is experiencing it for the first time, and we need to make sure it is the best experience possible. This is a crucial point of self reflection that is deeply empowering, which the audience will always remember.

Goal Setting
“HOW CAN YOU HOPE TO HIT A TARGET YOU CANNOT SEE? LET ALONE A TARGET YOU DO NOT HAVE?”

For every show that Vinh performs, it is crucial that it goes according to plan, because the margin for error in magic is very narrow. When achieving the impossible, it is all the more important that the goals for each act are identified and established well beforehand. There is no better way to illustrate this concept than to prove to the audience through a feat of seemingly impossible magic that the events of the entire show were prepared before it even began.

Anything is Possible
“YOUR BELIEFS DICTATE YOUR ACTIONS.”

Magic is an art that is created to demonstrate the impossible. The beautiful thing about this is that the very nature of magic shows us that things that are seemingly impossible can be made to happen. Vinh highlights this concept by first accomplishing an immensely impressive feat, and follows this by walking the audience through how this seemingly impossible feat was actually achieved.

Through several powerful exercises, Vinh is able to break down the barriers that we have in our minds, which hold us back from accomplishing truly amazing things. As cliché as it may come across to begin with, the undeniable fact that Vinh demonstrates right before our very eyes proves that anything is indeed possible. Definitely a key finishing statement to the audience that leaves them on an extremely high note.



Vinh Giang, Magician and Motivational Speaker: TEDxMacquarie University


Award-winning magician and keynote speaker, Vinh Giang demonstrates how to boost your influential powers by taking on a magician's practice routine. Through a series of entertaining tricks, he highlights that master showmanship hinges on a perfect sync of sight and sound, and that anything less can lead to inconsistencies that get between your audience and the message you want to convey.

Giang notes that most people already have the information they need to persuade others, but falter in the presentation because they have never "seen themselves." Even when offered the chance to watch a brief video of themselves speaking, most people turn down the opportunity due to embarrassment or self-consciousness. A magician, however, has little choice, but to record their performance, view it, and review it in order to ensure that their show will hit all the right marks.

"The way a magician practices is truly profound," Giang observes. "If I could share with you this formula today, it would give you an understanding of how to take your presentation ability from where it is to a whole new level."
