MORE ABOUT TOM'S SCHOOL ASSEMBLY PROGRAM CALLED, "DESTROY ILLUSIONS."
Tom gains students respect the moment he walks on stage with his mind-blowing illusions. Tom spends the first 15-20 minutes of every assembly using magic tricks and comedy as a way to capture attention. Students are then ready to listen to every word he has to say to the point countless teachers have claimed, "unbelievable, you could hear a pin drop." Tom makes it clear that his magic tricks are just an illusion. In life, we have all believed at least one illusion. For example; like believing that bullying and disrespecting others is fun. That is an illusion, a lie. Girls believe the illusion that they must look like the magazine cover or they are not pretty enough. That is a lie. Tom will present reality and truth statements to your students to combat all the lies and illusions they have been deceived to think is reality. Students will walk away from the assembly having more self worth, wanting to respecting others more, make wiser choices, stand up against bullying and see their life with a new purpose!
'Destroy Illusions' assemblies are powerful. They go beyond the four walls of your school and the day your assembly is held. Students lives have been drastically changed forever because of the message heard in their school gym or auditorium. Book Tom today!
