Debbie McGee is the wife and stage assistant of Paul Daniels and as famous in the UK as Paul himself. “The lovely Debbie McGee” is a national catchphrase and Debbie frequently appears in the media as well as presenting her own radio show.

We are very pleased that Debbie will be sharing some of her secrets at the Essential Magic Conference.

Luis de Matos

I've had the pleasure of watching both 2010 and 2011 as recorded conferences. They were simply amazing in their breadth and depth. The variety of speakers is amazing and, as a relatively new magician, provides a great intro into a wide array of performers, historical perspectives, performance philosophies, and much more. This year looks to be much more of the same! I hope to be able to catch some of it live, but even if not, the DVD collection is a wonderful resource.
