CL141: How To Build A Speaking Business – Interview with Vinh Giang

Vinh Giang

Vinh Giang (Jang) is a keynote speaker and magician but first and foremost an entrepreneur. While in his 20s, he started an online business with two good friends; all of them had decided to leave their careers in accounting and pharmacy, to pursue their dream of building a successful business. Their online platform, Encyclopedia of Magic, now teaches magic to almost 50,000 students around the world. For this innovative and successful business idea, Vinh and his friends were awarded Young Entrepreneur of the Year. Today Vinh is perhaps better known as a keynote speaker, sharing business ideas using the art of magic and some on-stage audience participation. Coming from the humble beginnings of a Vietnamese refugee family, Vinh has now worked with companies from all over the world including HSBC, Pfizer and the Million Dollar Round Table.
