Keith’s significant contribution to working extensively with Woody Harrelson, who portrayed a mentalist in the film, led to his appointment as the chief magic and mentalist consultant for the sequel, “Now You See Me – The Second Act.” He dedicated almost a year to this project, working through its filming in London and Macau.

His keynotes are rich in takeaway content, focusing on developing a growth mindset and achieving peak performance by reprogramming the subconscious mind. They are also designed to be an interactive, fun, immersive experience with plenty of audience involvement and brain hacking demonstrations to drive home the key touch points and takeaways.  

As a seasoned MC, renowned for his unique hosting style, Keith has presided over a diverse spectrum of events, spanning from prestigious conferences to esteemed award ceremonies. His ability to seamlessly integrate brain hacking with hosting duties creates an immersive and unforgettable experience for the audience.
