    Take your next event out of the ordinary and into the realm of the extraordinary with extraordinist Craig Karges!

    Craig Karges has become incredibly popular with corporate and association audiences for his ability to blend entertainment, message, and motivation in one unforgettable presentation.

    The variety of situations that Karges finds himself in is extraordinary in itself. From addressing 30,000 people in Kansas City’s Kemper Arena to entertaining 25 incentive award-winners aboard a private yacht cruising Vancouver Harbour in British Columbia, Canada; and from providing corporate entertainment at high profile events like the Indianapolis 500 to conducting an intuitive management workshop in Cairo, Egypt at the Sheraton El Gezirah located on an island in the middle of the River Nile, Karges is comfortable in any situation and he delivers time after time.

    Karges is not just an entertainer and he is much more than a speaker. As a speaker, he has been honored by the National Speakers Association (NSA) with the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation and is a CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame member. In the entertainment arena, “Performance Magazine,” the international touring talent weekly, named Karges’ touring show one of the top five variety / family shows in North America. Karges was in good company as the list also included the likes of illusionist David Copperfield and Walt Disney’s World on Ice. Performance Magazine called the extraordinist’s performance “The next era in mystery entertainment.” American Entertainment Magazine named Karges one of the top five corporate variety entertainers in the country.

    You’ve seen Craig Karges on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Larry King Live” as well as CNN Headline News, Fox News Channel, E! Entertainment Television and CNBC. The extraordinist has also starred in two, one-hour television specials and is the author of three books, including the bestselling “Ignite Your Intuition.”

    Craig Karges travels globally, from North America to Asia and from Africa to Europe creating first-class presentations that not only entertain but challenge the mind and leave people talking.

    Craig Karges combines the art of magic with the science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impression that nothing is impossible. Tables float, minds are read, metal bends and your imagination is challenged because you won’t believe your eyes!  Using total audience participation, Karges dazzles the mind as he challenges you to question what is real and what is unreal. You don’t just watch this presentation, you experience it! He baffles, mystifies and thoroughly entertains the audience and then, at the end of the presentation, when he has them in the palm of his hand, he delivers a powerful message concerning the potential of the human mind. “Experience the Extraordinary” is business theatre and motivational entertainment at its best!

    In a shift of focus from entertainment to empowerment, Craig Karges created “The Intuitive Edge.” This one-of-a-kind presentation does more than simply amaze and entertain. Participants learn memory techniques; their intuition is tested; and they are taught how to tap into their subconscious minds to enhance creativity and decision making.  “The Intuitive Edge” is a hands-on, interactive session that awakens participants to the possibility of reaching their full potential while experiencing greater personal power and achieving success more easily.

    “The conundrum is the same every year: how to entertain, energize and engage 3,000 employees amid a sea of executive speeches and Powerpoint presentations. So, I remembered a guy Paychex hired years ago. His was a unique act, bright and unexpected and our audience loved him! I remembered the one-of-a-kind talent, and the likable showman that really delighted our crowd. From the first reintroduction and phone call we knew we had our man. He listened intently when we described our event. We inquired if he would consider tailoring his performance. His enthusiasm crackled through the phone. Craig customized his show with clever script; he charmed and cajoled the attendees with spontaneous banter; even the hardest-nose cell phone and text addicts in the audience were fixed on him with dropped jaws! It appears to come easily, but after working with him pre-contract, through rehearsals and during the entire show, I think I have his number; he listens, he collaborates, he observes, probes for what matters to you, and focuses on that! In a business where entertainers are a mixed bag of copy-cat, out-priced, often oversold crap shoots Mr. Karges gives you a reason to believe again – in top talent, integrity in business dealings and well, in the extraordinary!”

    “Thank you for your third OUTSTANDING performance for Bayer. Again you wowed my crowd, engaging their minds for the evening closing. Each time you presented with a dynamic style whether it’s 150 people or 750 people you have exceeded Bayer’s goals. We appreciated the customized element of your presentations when you close with our corporate message. Although I have had the privilege of seeing you 3 times - I am always awestruck. Thank you for making Bayer look good.”
