We *could* have been special. But Mbeki & Zuma failed to take the advantage. Our amazing potential was squandered & now we're sinking. April 6th, 5:34 pm
And that's the illusion that S Africans have lived under for 20 - that we're "different", "special" & somehow "better". We're not. April 6th, 5:31 pm

Meet Marcel the Infotainer – South Africa’s premier business speaker, entertainer and marketing magician...
Marcel is one of South Africa’s best-kept secrets – a leading magician with a sparkling personality who knows to how communicate, make people laugh and teach them valuable business lessons at the same time. Once you’ve experienced his magic, you’ll never forget it!
With more than ten years’ experience in the hospitality and event industry – and more than 10 000 hours of paid performer experience, Marcel is one of the most talented and entertaining practitioners in the profession. He’s a registered Professional Speaker and has won wide acclaim for his talents, including numerous accolades from South Africa’s blue chip companies.
Whether you are hosting an intimate party or need an engaging speaker to deliver your message, you’ll find that Marcel consistently ‘delivers the goods.’ His powerful presentation techniques and captivating performances will leave your guests with indelible (and positive!) memories of you and your company.
He’ll tailor his show to your needs and he has built up an unrivalled reputation for reliability, delivery that exceeds expectations.
Over 10 000 hours of professional performance experience, for over 100 corporate clients, for all types of events and audiences.
International guest performer and lecturer at “Vismayam 2008″, India’s largest ever magic convention. Over 1 000 local and international performers attending this prestigious event in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, hosted by the Magic Academy of Kerala. Marcel lectured on ‘close-up’ magic and performed on stage for over 1 000 people. He was awarded a trophy by the tourism council of Kerala.
Currently the youngest registered Professional member of the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa, a member of the Global Speakers Federation.
Apart from being extremely entertaining, Marcel also managed to convey a strong message to the group to embrace a positive attitude towards the change that they are facing. I believe that his input during the induction and integration of the new employees will produce a positive result and have a lasting effect on the participants. I would not hesitate in recommending Marcel to anyone wishing to introduce an element of fun and magic to an event. His versatility will enable him to cater for a wide variety of needs, from just having fun to conveying complex issues.
Thank you for the excellent presentation as guest speaker during our 2012 SAGIC Convention. Even though you are well known as an entertainer and magician, we were interested in your “speaker” side on how to create customers for life. And you delivered! You inspired us to go back to our businesses & create some WOW by creating incredible WOW yourself…
Marcel delivered a performance that left us impressed, inspired and mind-boggled. Our staff fully appreciated the message that he, so eloquently, shared with them. We do believe that, by employing Marcel’s magical skills, the message of inspiration will remain with us for a long time.
Thank you for the two presentations which really got the message across to the staff in terms of a “magical experience”. As a dealership we really considered doing things differently and not putting our staff through another boring presentation where nothing actually gets absorbed and I believe we achieved that.
Forget any pre-conceived ideas you may have about magicians fitting in with circus acts and kids parties - this performance has world class polish that will dovetail perfectly with almost any occasion. Possibly most importantly, there is as much magic in Marcel's ability to keep the attention of a group beyond the actual performance as there is in his ability to perform the seemingly impossible.
Having travelled and spoken in over 30 countries I simply have to recommend Marcel Oudejans. His ability to captivate and mesmorise an audience is outstanding. But more than that, he is a true professional weaving profound insights in with Magic. You learn and are engaged the whole way through. Amazing... and unique.
Marcel is a professional's professional on and off the stage - friendly, fun, and fabulously engaging. For entertainment, laughter, and a deeper appreciation of the human possibility and potential - engage Marcel and this team of speakers, coaches, and human potential experts ...
Marcel is, in a word, "outstanding". He always amazes, entertains and confounds without hogging the limelight!
You’ll learn what the common behaviours of ‘winners’ in different fields are & how to apply them to your own life, as well as what motivates these kinds of decisions & behaviours. Marcel shares his insights into how the brain works & demonstrates why this is so important to understand when making decisions. This is an interactive keynote so your audience will be participating in various exercises to prove Marcel’s points.
This interactive workshop teaches the audience – through hands-on group participation – the principles of improvisation. These are extremely valuable skills as they improve creativity, communication skills, increase awareness, endow confidence and help achieve ‘group mind’. Perfectly suitable as a fun, laughter-filled and clean team-building event.
In a world where traditional advertising and networking is facing dramatic change, how can you still ensure that you gain ‘top of mind’ awareness from your target market? And once you’ve gained new customers, what can you do to increase your retention levels? In this engaging presentation, you’ll learn while you laugh as Marcel Oudejans will reveal the techniques used in ‘show business’ to captivate your audience, convey your message and create ‘customers for life’.
A highly engaging keynote designed to inspire your audience, Marcel demonstrates that everyone has the ability to be remarkable & that creating “magic” in your business or job is a matter of making the right choices.
This talk is filled with the best strategies & techniques taken from Marcel’s book, “The Serious Business Owner’s Guide To Creating Customers For Life”. Your audience will walk away with a greater understanding of sales techniques, why great customer service is vital, & how to turn prospects into life-long customers.
