Fantastically useful training delivered in a relaxed and easy to understand way. Having always thought cold reading was far too difficult, this in such a short time has given me the enthusiasm and confidence to start cold reading. The follow and support from Mick has been unbelievably good.
This was an excellent and informative evening. Mick is an easy going and personable teacher, yet the information provided contains many pearls. I will be referring to this again, but already feel I could manage a decent stab at this from a starting point. Definite five stars.
Really enjoyed this. Instils confidence for those just starting and will help you go and give readings quickly. Highly recommend
My first time learning about cold readings an Mick made this very easy. I went into this thinking man I bet there's a lot I'll have to memorize but he makes it simple by applying thing to things you already know. Definitely a lecture you want if your new to this type of magic
Before attending this course I knew nothing about Cold Reading. Mick gives you the knowledge and the tools you need to start down this fascinating road. All the student needs to do is apply the information and techniques he teaches to start doing Cold Readings. Obviously the more Cold Readings you do, the better you will get at using these techniques. I was excited to hear that Mick will be offering a sequel to this course to help me refine and enhance my Cold Reading techniques.
Neato! Really enjoyed this Academy...although Mick Wilson would probably be able to tell me this before it started...well done to all involved, another belter!!!
Great introduction into the art. Covering morals, readings oracles etc. Mick comes across as sincere, genuine and wanting people to learn the skills. Great input as well from the other guys for use and learning. Time and money well spent.
This was my first Alakazam Lecture, but it won’t be my last! Mick is an excellent teacher and was clear and concise with his explanations. I took a lot from this lecture but the main thing was to genuinely be interested in the people you are interacting with, and everyone will get more from the experience
Thoroughly enjoyed this lecture. I purchased this on a whim during lock down I came to it with no knowledge or expectations on cold reading – only as a term I’d seen mentioned. Mick is clearly knowledgeable and passionate about the topic. The whole lecture was relaxed and laid back. The beginning of the 2nd half was brilliant, to be able to sit and watch a reading is an experience in itself, and I feel there is much to take away. I’m looking forward to trying out what I’ve learnt and see how things go. Thanks Alakazam and Mick for putting this on for us.
What a excellent night with excellent information cant wait for Mick's next lecture well done chap
What an amazing insight into "Cold Reading", a way to enable all to feel better about an interaction, and make a positive time be more memorable than ever. Well done Mick.
As well as being hugely informative about giving readings, this lecture has invaluable wisdom about creating a sincere connection between a performer and their participant. I loved every second of this and already know I will be using it as a resource time and time again. Bravo Mick and thank you.
Great learning that can be applied to performing readings and magic but also useful in your daily life. Using this information will at the very least make you a better listener. Highly recommend checking the course out.
A great night with really interesting content. Something for everyone. I was particularly interested in the idea of using it as an introduction to Mentalism. I'm sure it would add impact as well as creating a good connection. Well done everyone.
Great lecture. Never been into cold reading. This lecture however, has changed my mind. Money very well spent.
Excellent lecture. Learn from someone who not only knows what he's talking about, but really cares about what he's doing.
What a brilliant lecture. Learned a lot. Loved it. Well worth every second - informative and focussed.
I came to this lecture with really no idea what to expect, was pleasantly surprised. What we learned was a great start to cold reading. Great teacher is Mick Wilson.
Another fantastic Alakazam Academy.... but, the best so far, by a long way. Mick is amazing, he had me hooked from the first to the last minute.
Great academy. course. Real workable techniques which can be applied to all types of performances taking them to another level. Mick has a lovely teaching style and I really recommend this course. I'm already itching to try this out with my locked down work mates. Thanks Mick.
I found Mr. Wilson to be very knowledgeable & personable. He has a unique way of developing rapport from the very start of his readings as well as with his instructions. The course is well structured and easy to follow. The 6 points covered, really give the structure of cold readings including the problems that may come up. Cold reading can be difficult to teach because so much happens in the mind of the reader. but Mr Wilson's method takes everything out of his head and puts it in mine. I enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a reader or better at the skill. Thank you :)
I have only watched the first half of Mick Wilson Alakazam Academy and he has already enthoused me to learn so much more about the subject of cold reading and associated subjects. I am sure that the remainder of this course will be so much better and worth watching. Micks persona and approach to, not only his subject but to life is so impressive that I should strive to learn more of his approach and presentation.
Had no interest or desire to ever learn cold reading. But in this crazy world this came up and I love the academies. So paid my cash and logged in. Firstly Mick is such a charismatic person and so easy to listen to. Anyone with passion for their craft and love for people generally are. So I sat back and listened....and learnt. And boy did I learn. It's a fascinating area of our craft that I had wrongly ignored. I'm so glad I grabbed this academy and only hope that part 2 drops in the future. Mick is a gentleman and a genius.
Excellent information, well-presented. Practical and immediately useful. I've been doing readings for nearly 30 years and am still learning - this is highly recommended.Write Review
