Lee was a professional magician for 20 years, is a member of the world-famous Magic Circle and was described by Prince William as ‘absolutely amazing’.
A lover of live theatre, Lee has written theatre works for The Almeida Theatre, and been a commissioned writer at The Royal Opera House. Fluent in Spanish, Lee is very good at playing the piano badly!
In a previous life, Lee was a sales director at News International and he now combines this background in magic, theatre and sales to give presentations, keynotes, workshops and coaching to firms including Deloitte, Shell, Laing O'Rourke, Roche, EY, Barclays Wealth and HSBC, helping people to become more persuasive and connected, sell more, present better and increase their ability to get their messages across confidently to colleagues and clients.
Over time, Lee was increasingly invited not just to perform magic to clients, but to speak at their events. Realising that this was his 'true niche', in 2010 he become a full-time conference speaker and workshop leader and since then has spoken all over the globe at hundreds of events.
In 2018, Lee's first book was published – ‘The Busy Person’s Guide To Great Presenting’. In March 2019, it was the highly-commneded runner-up in the 'Business Book Of The Year Awards'.
He calls it his ‘first’ because he has four more planned in his head. Now, he just needs to find the time to write them…

How did you get into magic?
I had a trick in my Christmas stocking when I was four years old,and fell in love with performing it! When I was twelve, I entered a talent contest, and won 1st place. The prize was £20 in cash, and a trip to The Isle of Wight. Life’s never been so good since!
What’s your favourite audience size …?
There are pros and cons to different audience sizes, but I particularly like large audience numbers – the more the merrier. I love the energy that comes from several hundred people laufghing together, or suddenly ‘getting’ an idea. I suppose it comes from my background as a performer, but I really like the feeling of speaking to a large room.
How did you go from magic to speaking?
A lot of my performing was for corporate client events, and my clients would often ask me to introduce the event, and generally bring a bit more energy into the room. Slowly, that part of my performing took over from magic.
How do you do your tricks?
By magic. Obviously!
