Head shot of Paul Newton in a hat

Paul Newton is a Public speaker and magician.

With a wide range of skills in magic, mind control, mental theft and hypnosis, he has built a large following by being entertaining and educational.


His career has grown out of being a magician – from weddings and events to stage shows, something he still does with a lot of passion! However, over the years, his work in security and understanding people, especially how to trick them, has grown into becoming a public speaker for business audiences.

His performances are engaging and enjoyable, but more importantly it helps people to start thinking about how every day actions can become security issues and so staff and owners alike can become more secure. He is also a prolific business networker, so you will possibly see him out and about!
