TEDxHKUST - Lawrence Sullivan - The Magic of Connection

Here he is -- the Magic Man of Hong Kong. Magic came naturally to Lawrence. He mastered his first card trick at the tender age of 7 and his fascination for illusions and deceptions led him to learn the toughest magic tricks effortlessly. As an American growing up in Asia, Lawrence has developed a modern conjuring style and technique vastly different from the stereotypical "rabbit and hat" magician's act. In addition to his expert proficiency in sleight of hand, years of experience have taught him how to quickly read and adapt to multicultural audiences, presenting magic in a way that is elegant and dynamic. Believe it or not, he has performed for Michael Jordan, Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, Rihanna, Jackie Chan, even President George Bush. Wicked right?In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
