Magical Journey with Board of Directors

Just earlier this month, we at Meta Illusions have received an opportunity to see to a specific request that other Magicians and companies have turned down. We took it up and it was one of the most fruitful and wonderful journey that our company has had. 

This company had an interesting request, wanting to have the Board of Directors perform a Magic Show for their upcoming Dinner and Dance. We had a short span of less than 3 months to date, and yes they came to us late last year in 2017. Knowing that Alexander Yuen is well experienced in the directorial role due to similar projects of the recent past, we knew this would turn out extremely positive. Both companies have come to agreements shortly as everything was positive as we agreed to take up this project with much promptness.

Without much delay, Alexander Yuen worked quickly to draft the timeline as well as the scripting. Whilst the rest of team worked on getting equipped with the items for training to come, together with the Directors, on a weekly basis.

Our very first meeting was the get-to-know. As everyone met each other for the first time. We had to learn to schedule training sessions to fit everyone's busy schedule. Alexander Yuen had that very chance to get the Directors introduce and speak a little about themselves on the very day. From there, he could discern and direct the individuals of whom would be good fit for the roles in this upcoming Magic Show.

Thereafter, next week we began our first lesson and to meet the first set of Directors to begin training them. Prior to every lesson when they are meeting us for the first time, they all had to also recite the Magician's Code and sign it off on paper. We treat Magic with great respect and of course, with everyone of them learning the Magic that they will later show, they had to take it seriously as well. That does not exclude the camera ladies ;)

Weekly, we ran through and equipped the specific individual Director that would be turning up for training. It was very pleasant and nice have worked with everyone of them as they were all very teachable to learn every single detail to being a good performer.

Having said that, showmanship and courage started to build up and muster within them as our team helped them to work on the subtleties and mistakes week after week.

Of course, until the day came where we had our last training, which was just one week before the actual show. The dedication and hard practice everyone has put together will be displayed right before their distinguished guests,partners and colleagues.

Testimonial from WIS Holdings Group

Hi, Alexander and Kim,

Sincerely, and on behalf of my colleagues, I thank Metaillusions team for the relentless coaching throughout the months of preparation.

It was a journey travelled with much challenges & frustrations at times from conceptualising to learning to the final moments, as we have members dropping out, we neglect and only to catch up with the practices at the 11th hour etc, and I witnessed how you and your team bore with us during this period and never stopped giving reminders again and again, only to make sure we succeed.

Thank you, Alexander, for the efforts in studying our personalities and customising the roles for us, I am impressed by this segment of the entire process.

There were a couple of genuine miscommunication and misunderstandings which I so appreciate our resolving them together.

Thank you, Kim, for patient guidance despite our constant forgetting of the lines and theatrical techniques.

There were just so many of us with different gaps during the training sessions, I really don’t know how you did it, but you did it.

Thank you, Anderson, Yuqi & Douglas for accommodating our rehearsal, and seeing to stage preparation.

Not easy, but you all made it work.

I am not sure if you still remember I once shared with you that another company actually gave us up after understanding our performing needs and diversified profiles.  Metaillusions took up this mission (which I thought was almost impossible) and made it a success.  Besides the concrete leadership, Metaillusions has a great team.  The young men are disciplined, humble and embrace accountability; as a HR practitioner it has been a long time since I last encountered such professional young generation from this new era.

Honestly, there were some slips during the actual performance, and I personally wished it could be better.  But well that was the best we ever could be at that very moment and I am 100% sure my team gave it all.

So once again, thank you, gentlemen.  On a personal capacity, you helped me see the other side and real side of magic, just like how the sun rises in the morning which is one magical moment that we all take for granted.  Indeed I appreciate magic is all around us so long we can see it.

Metaillusions, you create magic!

Here's wishing Metaillusions a fabulous 2018 & beyond!
