Corporate magician Joe M. Turner ( will kick off the 12th Annual Possible Woman Conference in Atlanta with his special brand of magical inspiration. The Possible Woman Conference, April 21 at the Georgia World Congress Center, also features former White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers and Nicki Keohohou, CEO of Direct Selling Woman’s Alliance and one of America’s Top 30 Female Entrepreneurs.

“Magic Man” Turner, who has been featured on CNN Headline News, Good Morning America and Nightline, possesses a unique combination of real-world corporate experience and exceptional sleight-of-hand skills. This distinctive fusion of talents has made him a top corporate magician.

The Atlanta-based corporate conjuror blends his change management expertise and theatrical background to create unforgettable presentations.

He writes for Genii Magazine, one of his industry’s major periodicals, and is a contributing author to the upcoming book Hyper-Growth.

From a 7:30 a.m. continental breakfast to a 4:45 p.m. Connection Reception, this Possible Woman Leadership Conference is a day packed with dynamic speakers, interactive question-and-answer sessions, well-qualified panels, informative exhibits and exciting networking opportunities.

The luncheon keynote speaker, Dee Dee Myers, is the first woman and youngest person to hold the job of White House press secretary.

Better Mornings Atlanta

Posted by Joe M. Turner | on February 24, 2009

Today’s appearance on the Atlanta CBS affiliate’s morning show sort of came out of nowhere last week. But I wasn’t going to say no to an opportunity!

I improvised the weather forecast idea on the spot after arriving at the venue. It is a further illustration of what I said in the interview — magic can be used to tell another story. Maybe it’s the story of your company’s journey through the last year… or the goals for the coming year… or your employees’ successes… or how your new product will benefit your customers.
