Keynote Speaker - Corporate Entertainer/Mentalist - Workshop Facilitator


Your Message Delivered with Insight

About Me

Experience Counts


Hi! I'm Terry Tyson. With 35+ years as an award-winning safety professional and safety keynote speaker, I bring extensive experience to deliver YOUR message in a unique way. With as many years as a performing magician/mentalist and creator,  I possess unique skills in knowing how people think and how to motivate them to reach safety and company cultural excellence.  Using magic to illustrate message points, audiences and attendees pay close attention and remember those messages. Yes, a safety pro-mindreader-artist-writer is a unique mix of qualifications but I know you will find these skills as an effective combination to filling your organization's  safety, training and presentation needs.

Heavy Duty Safety


I began my safety career in underground mining. It is a demanding environment that calls for often quick but effective actions to complex safety issues. From there, I have worked as a safety pro in a variety of allied trades including Portland cement manufacturing, heavy construction, road building, asphalt and ready mixed concrete, surface mining and office environments.  From building safety programs from the ground-up, to enhancing existing programs, I've done it. And more.

Trainings, Workshops and Keynotes


By combining my experience in the work environment and stage work, I have become a frequent, popular industry conference speaker and workshop leader, I use my insight gained as a stage magician and "mindreader" to make my presentations like no other. In addition to sharing some of my own messages, I've worked with clients to design customized trainings, workshop and presentations that make a difference.

Safety is about people; protecting people and the assets in which they work, motivating them to care, giving them effective and meaningful "tools," and helping company leaders to establish sustainable programs.

My safety consulting services are comprehensive yet cost effective.

Corporate & Private Party Entertainment


I often incorporate "mindreading" into my trainings and presentations to help illustrate cogent message points. They stand out from the norm. 

For special clients, I offer stand-alone close-up and stage performances at private functions and conferences.

It is not uncommon for me to deliver a keynote address during the day and then entertain the conference attendees in the evening. 

My shows are interactive, mind-boggling and FUN!

Trade show booths, private parties, after-dinner and conference entertainment are just a small sample of the "magical" services I provide.
