If You Want More Effective Meetings That Are Fun, Energized, and Unique, Then This Might Be The Most Important Letter You'll Ever Read. Here's Why...
Dear Certified Meeting Planner:
While many entertainers do an average job at everything from kids' shows to weddings, I specialize in doing a fantastic job providing corporate entertainment. Specifically, I love to work with certified meeting planners and destination management companies who need custom entertainment for meetings.
- Motivate your team at the next sales meeting. Instead of being bored and lethargic, your sales people will leave amazed, pumped up, and ready to sell
- I incorporate ideas about asking for referrals, having the right attitude to get the sale, and creating trust and relationships in business.
- Reward and spotlight key players and high achievers.
All of my shows are customized to meet your needs. You can use my performances to match the theme of your event and reiterate an important lesson, or you can simply have me put on a fun show to re-energize your meeting's attendees.
An Example of Customization:
IDEA: Prospecting is really just a matter of mental discipline.
I show an empty bag and fill it with jellybeans while telling the following story:
What if I showed you a big bag of multi-colored jellybeans and threw in one $50,000 diamond? Then I blindfolded you and said you could scoop handfuls of the mix as long as you wished, before giving the next person a shot. When do you think you would stop "prospecting"? Before you got that diamond? Of course not. Think of that bag of jellybeans as you set your sales goal each day and go for that diamond. Then, when you get it, go home, enjoy your success and get stoked for a great day tomorrow.
At the end of the story, I reach into the bag and pull out a diamond ring, but all of the jellybeans have vanished.
Nobody will forget that message.
What Makes Me Different?
I am a full-time, professional corporate entertainer with over 20 years of sales and marketing experience. Believe it or not, many entertainers you'll find on places like GigMasters or other lead-generation farms are mostly hobbyists, kids' entertainers, or are generalists that perform anywhere they can. When you book me, I speak the language of business and can connect with your meeting attendees on a level they can relate to. Of course, this means I can share valuable information about sales, marketing, and motivation while being entertaining at the same time. In a nutshell, I'm a corporate entertainment specialist, not just a magician.
Here are Four Reasons You Should Have Zach at Your Next Meeting
1. Bring something different to your company's monthly meeting. Why hire another speaker when you can bring in somebody that can make the same points as a speaker in a fun way that energizes the room?
2. My shows are truly customized to meet your needs. Many entertainers do the same stuff for every client and call what they do customized because they mention the company's name during a trick. When you work with me, you have a partner that's interested in helping you achieve the goals you have for your meeting. I will emphasize and communicate the message that's most important to you.
3. I am the easiest entertainer you will ever work with, guaranteed! I charge one fee which includes all travel, room, meal expenses, etc., so you don't have to spend time matching invoices and receipts. I always send a W9 the first time so you don't have to waste time hunting it down. I make the booking process simple and fast. I will be the easiest part of planning your meeting.
4. I have shows that will work for any size group. If you have a group of 20, I can perform sophisticated sleight-of-hand magic designed to match your meeting's theme. If you have a group of a 1,000, I can perform a customized stage show that includes squeaky-clean comedy, mentalism, music, audience participation, and of course, magic.
Entertainment Makes Meetings More Effective and Makes You a CMP Star
- 100% Money Back Guarantee (if you don't love my show, you don't pay a cent).
- All of your guests will be laughing and will be amazed at what they see (instead of sitting around bored).
- If people are yawning at your sales meetings, it's time to do something different. I can wake up, motivate, and educate your sales force. They'll retain more information, have more fun, and they'll have more energy throughout the rest of the meeting.
- You will not be embarrassed by an offensive show (you'll join your guests in amazement and laughter and you'll be relaxed knowing the entertainment is appropriate for your group).
I have a background in direct marketing, goal setting, sales, advertising, motivation, interpersonal communication, and speaking. Before becoming a professional entertainer, I've held jobs in broadcasting (including working for Howard Stern), technology, customer service, and a bunch of other whacky stuff. The bottom line is I can take the theme of your sales meeting and perform a custom show, or you can tell me what topic you'd like me to speak about and I can build a custom program for you around that subject. Of course, the lecture will be fun and full of comedy and magic.
You can relax or take care of important business. You don't want to hold somebody's hand throughout your event. I'm a professional, I've done this stuff a million times, and I know what to do. After I arrive, I get down to business. It's one less thing you have to worry about which frees you up to take care of things like networking, selling, or handling a real business crisis.
Here Are a Few of My Clients
Don't Hire An Entertainer That...
- Doesn't promise a money-back guarantee.
I am so confident I will make your meeting more fun and effective that if I don't, you don't pay, it's as simple as that.
- Doesn't specialize in working with Destination Management Companies and Certified Meeting Planners.
Performers that don't specialize in speaking and/or entertaining at meetings aren't accustomed to working with meeting professionals. With me, you get a partner who wants to help make your meeting the best it can be, not just a guy that makes a pigeon appear.
- Doesn't entertain and educate at the same time.
There are a lot of great entertainers, but that doesn't mean they know how to connect with your company's culture. I run my own business. I'm in the trenches and know what it takes to make sales and hit goals. Of course, I'm entertaining, but I can also share sales and marketing secrets I've learned. I make your meetings more fun and more effective.

More Happy Clients
“It was a great icebreaker!”
“We thoroughly enjoyed your performance during cocktail hour for our event this week! You provided a way for people who did not know each other very well to laugh and talk with one another; it was a great icebreaker!
Our employees from out of town are still telling me how much they enjoyed your magic and your great personality.
We will certainly consider you any time we have a corporate event."
- Corporate Office Manager
“I was hesitant about having a comedy/magician.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you and to thank you for a wonderful performance. It is our goal to entertain our employees at our annual get together.
I must admit I was a little hesitant about having a comedy/magician at our event. Was I ever surprised! You read everyone just right. Our employees are still commenting on how entertaining the evening was. We are looking forward to having you entertain our employees at our next annual gathering."
About Zach Waldman
I've been a professional comedian and magician for most of my life. Originally from Miami, FL, I now live in Santa Monica, CA. I perform regularly at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA.
I'm a member of both the Society of American Magicians as well as The Academy of Magical Arts.

You Won't Have to Worry...
- Consistent Pricing so you can be confident of your decision (you won't have to worry that the next person calling is getting a better deal while you get taken).
- Fully customized programs. A lot of entertainers claim to customize their programs and they charge a lot more for these shows. However, when you see them at some other event, the show is almost identical. Just saying the company's name isn't true customization.
- Sophisticated shows (no cornball antics to embarrass you).
- You won't have to worry about complaints or regret the next day (clean, appropriate material means you can relax and enjoy the show with confidence because you've hired a professional).
