about Eric

Eric Samuels was a high-profile player in the radio industry for more than twenty-five years.  Recognized as one of the country’s top broadcasters, he was recipient of the industry’s prestigious Program Director of the Year honour on five separate occasions. As Senior Vice President of Programming for one of Canada’s largest national broadcasters, Eric helped develop and polish the skills of the people he worked with, whether they were on-air, on stage, in the boardroom, or on the road making sales calls.


In addition to his extensive experience as a corporate executive, Samuels has a considerable performance background. He’s hosted radio shows in several of Canada’s largest cities, performed across Canada as a stand-up comic, and he’s an accomplished writer and newspaper columnist. His work as a Mentalist (Magician of the Mind), has been his focus for the past decade, and it’s won him standing ovations across the globe.

As a Mentalist, Eric Samuels employs a variety of skills ranging from psychological influence techniques to arcane stagecraft in order to make the impossible seem possible. He is considered one of the top performers and creative forces in his field, lecturing to both magicians and mentalists all over the world.


Samuels’ speaking programs combine his two greatest passions, management training and mentalism. The results are one-of-a-kind presentations delivering relevant information packaged as fast-paced entertainment.


He believes that a great presentation should deliver content that connects on both a personal and professional level, leaving you with tangible takeaways. “I structure my presentations like an entertaining and thought-provoking film,” he says. “The relevant parts should linger in your mind for a very long time.”


Originally from Montreal, Samuels lives in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, just outside of Vancouver.
