We are thrilled that Richard Osterlind, a former Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, will be back presenting at MINDvention.
Richard is considered by many to be the foremost mentalist performing in the English language today. His unique mix of natural warmth with an almost supernatural ability to read thoughts, bend metal objects with his mind, and scores of other amazing demonstrations, has made him one of the most sought-after corporate entertainers in the world.
He's appeared all over the world - from Beijing to Boston, Monte Carlo to Mexico City, Calgary to Cleveland. Perhaps the biggest testimony to his talents is that he's been invited for return engagements by many of the CEO's and event planners he has amazed year after year.
Richard is also the author of the exciting new book Mind Over Matter that teaches readers how to develop their own ESP abilities.

“I’ll be sharing some thoughts and effects for socially distanced live shows, that work on Zoom too. One of them is my version of the classic Magic Square that enables you to immediately follow the effect up with a strong number prediction that uses the numbers generated in the square. It’s also a good practical example of how to transition smoothly from one effect to another to create a seamless, flowing show.
I’ll also share some work I’ve done on billet switches and how to make them visually deceptive. As part of this, I’ll teach, in detail, my version of Annemann’s Telepathy Plus. This is a great substitute for 4 DT, it’s smoother, faster, can be done in any environment, does not use envelopes, AND does not use the one ahead method. This version is the most deceptive I’ve ever come up with!”
