Gilan Gork – Mentalist Powers Persuasion

Gilan Gork – Mentalist Powers Persuasion is a renowned mentalist who exhibits extraordinary feats of the mind; reading your thoughts and predicting what you will do or say before you’re even aware of it.

He showcases his abilities with either an interactive performance piece or one of his motivational leadership talks through Speakers Inc.

As a youngster, Gilan taught himself to read before other children his age so that he could study books on the art of magic. Before his age even reached double digits he was being trained personally by professionals in the ‘allied arts’.

By the age of twelve Gilan began to perform professionally at birthday parties and restaurants. Despite still performing magic and illusion at this stage in his life, these early years afforded Gilan the opportunity of interacting with a myriad of people every single day.

These frequent exchanges invited Gilan’s natural intuitiveness to come to the fore and before long he started to crack the code to his audience’s minds, grasping techniques which would later result in Gilan’s uncanny abilities of thought-transfer and seeming mind-control. Gilan did not comprehend the true nature or power of these skills until he vacationed with his family at the age of sixteen.

At their holiday resort he met a hypnotist who lent him a book and introduced Gilan to a local mentalist who imparted to him an old spiral-bound book full of ideas and techniques on mentalism.

It was on this holiday that Gilan began to understand the path in which he could develop his abilities – to leave magic behind and venture further into the world of the mentalist.

After a couple of years of rapidly developing his expertise, Gilan entered a major competition held by the prestigious Johannesburg Magic Circle. There were dozens of competitors, all of whom were magicians and illusionists, except for Gilan Gork-Mentalist Powers Persuasion who came prepared with his personally developed show titled ‘Thought Travels Quicker than Light’.


Gilan scooped first place after having read the minds of randomly selected volunteers, controlled their thoughts and even predicted what they would say or do in advance.

From there on, and to this day, Gilan Gork – Mentalist Powers Persuasion continues to hone his abilities through his personally developed network of international mentors, whose expertise lay in the fields of mentalism, theatre and creativity. Follow Gilan on Twitter

Today, Gilan’s shows and talks have taken him around the world, although admittedly he enjoys focusing on adding value in his home country of South Africa.

He is realizing his hopes and dreams – amplifying the power of the mind, extending human potential and traveling beyond imagination.

He has a knack of drawing his audiences into a unique atmosphere of entertainment, disbelief and inspiration. His suave charisma combined with powerful presentation continues to elevate his art of Mentalism to internationally peak performances.

Gilan & the media:
As with anyone who has an astounding skill and the ability to communicate and present feats in highly entertaining ways, Gilan began to receive attention from the media.

This media interest would snowball when Gilan launched a national tour of his theatre show titled ‘Beyond The Mind’. To date, Gilan has been featured on prime time television and radio shows for interviews and demonstrations of his unique style of mentalism.

Training – Gilan does offer Masterclasses on both the Body Language for Business and Persuasion Games topics.

There are half day and full day options, however for Persuasion Games we highly recommend that a full day is used (or two half days) as there is a lot of material to cover in this topic and the full day provides the maximum value to the delegates.

Gilan has been a highlight feature on many of these shows, often attempting crazy stunts. For example, on South Africa’s biggest investigative journalism show, Carte Blanche, Gilan was challenged to drive around a racetrack in an Aston Martin after having been blindfolded by Derek Watts.

The producers of the show also placed obstacles around the track. However Gilan Gork – Mentalist Powers Persuasion successfully navigated around the track, demonstrating a previously top-secret military theory called ‘Remote Vision’ in which one person is able to “see” through another person’s eyes.
