Adam Wilber is an Entrepreneurial Wizard, Corporate Trainer, and a Master Magician.
In addition to inventing tricks and props for himself, Adam works in Creative Product Development at Ellusionist, a company that invents tricks for other magicians. With the creative capacity to think through both sides of the illusion, Adam not only fooled audiences, but he also stunned his fellow magicians. Today, Ellusionist is the world’s largest magic company with a line of must-have magic essentials.
He won the FU award on the hit TV Show “Fool Us” with Penn & Teller. He’s made appearances on Discovery Channel, SyFy, CBS and has racked up over 10 Million youtube views. He has 5 Patents to his name, is the author of 5 books including his best selling book Creativity: The Magic Formula, and has performed thousands of shows across the globe.
I think it’s fair to say Adam knows a thing or two about creativity. He takes all those skills, and the processes he’s learned to provide creativity workshops for corporate clients around the globe.
Adam used to believe some people are born creative and some aren’t. He acknowledges there are some freak geniuses out there who are born with something the rest of us don’t have. Beyond that he now believes that we are all born with the ability to be creative.
