Andrew Bennett began his career as Ross Perot's personal assistant, and for over three decades he has been a leadership consultant and coach to organizations of all shapes and sizes around the world. A member of The Magic Circle, the oldest and most prestigious society of magicians in the world, Bennett uses magic to enable leaders to simplify and accelerate organizational transformation. 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)

Mister camera guy listen to me you're all over the place you make me dizzy
Laszlo Bujdoso (3 months ago)
Great presentation! This idea is as old as humanity. God SAID: "Let there be light." And it is a pity that we have forgotten that we all have this superpower.

Great!

please tell your camera operator to loosen the screw that controls the pan from left to right, it's kind of jerky. you can tell it's too tight.
james dean (3 months ago)

A. this guy's qualification is he is a "Magician"? B. Between his going all over the stage and the camera operator not keeping up with him/not know how to use it effectively... How is this worthy of TEDx?

Gandhi said it a long time ago man "Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny" Nothing is new under the sun, life is a cycle.

Many men speak to the girlfriend I love you, you are beautiful, can't see you I miss you, but hide with other lady and he cheat all girls money.

People read what I said below, don't trust much What we speak is what we creat. Because you will step in a trap in your life. Use you soul energy to clever feel everything in life then walk to the correct way.
COMBINE Ltd (5 months ago)
Jesus Christ so powerful? Cure sick of people? But when he speak out ask God don't give him that bitter wine, but he couldn't change anything. Everybody say I will alife till age 100, will everybody alife till 100? Of course not. You love someone even you say I Love You, he doesn't love you never with you, if he doesn't love you go with you, there might he want to cheat you something.

If ypu say everyday I will go heaven but you do so many bad things, sure you can't go heaven. If a street child see you always pass by ask you take care him, if you are rude person you will not care that child, even how that child call you for help will not happened.
COMBINE Ltd (5 months ago)
That's not really true. For example, you speak to someone he die, if that person the energy power than you, that what you say will turn bacK to you. For example. Person A talk to a flower destroy you, you die now, at the same time person B talk to that flower I love you, you will alife very strong. If person B the energy more strong, then the flower follow person B. For example, the wife the brain and mouth say I will be rich, but her husband wanner her die get all her money, if the husband energy stronger than the wife, the wife will very weak and can't be rich. But in that case actually the husband lost also, cause they are couple, she lost he lost, he thinking got the wife million, but if he didn't greedy to his wife, he must have more than million.
Samuel White (5 months ago)
If words we say create things in your life.Ok put this to the test .by speaking something good or bad and see what happens on the day you spoke it. Remember that Jesus only spoke to things one time not over and over again it came to pass no long wait.😎

...anagrams, can they kill if ...
Norman Wilkinson (6 months ago)
You truly are a magician--I'm amazed at the spontaneous reaction I am having to your video. You have organised my attitude by saying words that evoke intention ; the belief system that has for so long confused and corrupted my personal progress has been drifting, for some time, slowly into obsolescence . The belief system, I think, is the nonsense drifting around in our heads that seems to contradict and oppose freedom of individual thinking . If... when i awake in the morning i'm oblivious to the sensation i speak of.... i will understand! But some how , i feel good about this one. I will leave an extra comment just in case any one is interested. Thanks for the best video i have seen in a long time.

THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER AWWWESOME VIDEO!!
You need a new camera guy
ffs, aramaic is NOT a sacred language. It is what predates hebrew and way way waaaay predates jesus. THIS IS THE LANGUAGE jews spoke and wrote in before jesus. hebrew is very similar to it and in modern hebrew it would be ABRA"ke"debra and most of the israelis know what it means. U didnt have to call MIT, any orthodox local Rabbi could have told u that

Great Job Andrew!  You are so composed, confident and your content is rock solid and rich; moreover, managing your "Patter" works!  I am so proud to call you my friend since 1993!  Keep making a difference in people's lives old friend.  I'm still trying to find a Bowling Ball in my Flip Charts!  Ross Perot would be proud of you...I certainly am!

I've spoken a hundred times I will pass my exams after studying but, nope i always fail...
Ketan Shukla (8 months ago)
Belief has NOTHING to do with it. He spoke it a hundred times, yet never STUDIED a hundred times. Ofcourse you're going to fail. Speaking isn't enough, you have to DO. Belief has nothing to do with it.
MOBK (9 months ago)
And...with self belief and use of positive words you are already half way there Niels. If its not working dont be afraid to re-examine the approach you use to acquire the necessary knowledge. Check out talk by Barbara Oakley, "Learning how to learn". She also written a good book called, 'A Mind for Numbers' which can be applied to any subject. Godspeed!
James Gibson (9 months ago)
That's because you have to BELIEVE that you will pass. If you speak something, you have to also believe it to be true.

I learned about the power of words by studying the Bible. If you don't believe me read the Bible and you will be amazed at how you will learn to change your words. WORDS are powerful so be very careful how you use them and that applies to me too. I also have to remember that constantly.

Patrick Barnaby (6 months ago)
Words are POWER. When we ACT on them then the POWER is released. John 1:1 This is why the Bible SAYS have FAITH in God.

LucisFerre1 (1 year ago)
The word grimoire, a book of magic, comes from the root of the word grammar. The Scottish word glamour originally meant a magic spell to make people see something more enticing than what is. It also comes from the same root as grammar. "Spell" in spellcasting means to spell. The roots of actual magic (psychology, propaganda, the placebo/nocebo effect) is rooted in words.
C. Ard (1 year ago)
I truly enjoyed watching and listening. I watched a week ago and replaced some negatives thoughts and words with abracadabra. Reminding myself what I speak is what I create. Was kinda cool transforming the negatively into some not so negative,

Perhaps, but the left side of my head is where hearing does NOT happen... If I want to listen to this with headphones, I have to wear them backwards or download video and have it play in vlc playing reverse stereo

Nothing new, but rehash of the NLP premise. Reference to 5000 years old source is not that damaging to implied novelty as to 50y.o. one.

Huh is that Richard Bandler? Hmmmm I thought this is a guy named Andrew?
