Keeping Your Head, Whilst Other Lose Theirs with Mark Levy and Chris Cooper

How do you keep your head when others may be losing theirs?

I am delighted to have the fascinating Mark Levy on the show again. However, surprised at how he used his sleight of hand mastery to magically turn the tables on me – ‘Chris, we could talk about my experiences, however what everyone needs right now is to understand how you have remained calm in the storm following two failed major surgeries this year’. 

Mark is a brilliant conversationalist, consultant to global brands, iconic TV shows and individuals like Simon Sinek. He has written for the New York Times, is a multiple author, Hall of Fame Consultant, educator and speaker. He also creates magic tricks and shows including co-creating ‘Chamber Magic’ that has run for over two decades and is New York’s highest rated live-show, even higher on TripAdvisor than Hamilton.

So join us as we explore my (Chris Cooper) elevatory health experiences (with Mark leading the interviewing), as well as Mark’s wisdom in keeping your head whilst others may be losing theirs. Stories and insights to help us all thrive in today’s turbulent modern world.
