Bill Gladwell - "The Hypnotist" RSS

Bill Gladwell is "The Hypnotist".

Bill is called the master manipulator of thoughts and behavior, and you realize why from the first moment you meet him.

Bill is able to predict and influence people's thoughts and actions with covert suggestion, manipulate their decision-making process, and read unconscious signs that indicate what a person is thinking.

By combining hypnosis, NLP, psychology, and directed awareness with twenty years of focused attention on the study and application of advanced mind control techniques; Bill creates an intimate performance that you will never forget.

When Bill is not in front of a camera or on a stage...

• Hypnosis Trainer — Bill is one of the top hypnosis trainers working today. His students include mental health professionals, entertainers, celebrities, salespeople, CEOs, and everyone seeking to master influence over themselves and others.

• Corporate Trainer — Bill has developed and facilitates programs ranging from sales training and customer service to teaching people how to relieve stress and anxiety.

• Personal Coach — Bill takes private clients and conducts group sessions for weight loss, smoking cessation, stress relief, personal change, achieving your goals, and much more.


Bill was born in 1971 in Lima, Ohio. He traveled often with his parents, but they only took him to places that were a lot like Lima… wide-open spaces, tractors, corn fields, and the smell of livestock.

Bill’s entrance into the performing arts was as a classical pianist. Beginning very young, he performed for whoever would listen.

When Bill ran out of people who would listen in Lima, he toured the United States on more than one occasion. During one of his tours, Bill shared a venue with a hypnotist who's show captivated him. He made the decision to learn everything he could about hypnosis.

So, as you sit there and scratch your head, you’re probably asking yourself what corn fields, classical piano, and hypnosis have in common. Well… nothing. Bill simply thought it would be “really cool” to make people do what he wanted them to do. He took classes, attended seminars, and became a master hypnotist. Bill went back on tour… this time as a very successful stage hypnotist.

One evening, Bill arrived at a club that promised to have over 200 people in attendance. There were 17 people (including the bartender and waitress), and they were all inebriated (including the bartender and waitress); but still, the show must go on… until a rather large woman passed out on stage immediately after the chair in which she was sitting buckled. The applause from a few drunkards floated to the stage, but that was the beginning and the end of that particular performance. There is a difference between being hypnotized and passing out. Passing out does not make good entertainment. Bill was not paid, because the show lasted three minutes.

Promising himself that he would not go unpaid again, he began to experiment attempting to develop a form of hypnosis that works on anyone at anytime. He didn't stop there. Bill also wanted a way to break through what he had always been taught... "People cannot be hypnotized against their will."

Knowing that his new research and experiments were going to take him to places that the mainstream hypnosis community could not, Bill broadened his approach and his skills.

Over the next several years, Bill was able to infiltrate and study some of the most secretive and guarded organizations known for their influence and mind control techniques, including law enforcement, agencies that are not supposed to exist, religious groups and cults, the military, and others. At the same time, he continued his study of human psychology and behavior, covert hypnosis, and social dynamics.

Pulling the most powerful common elements from each field and combining them with his skills as a master hypnotist, Bill developed one of the most powerful forms of influence in existence.

Bill discovered that people can't be hypnotized against their will, but they can be hypnotized without their knowledge.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Bill Gladwell and Eric Dittelman LIVE!

For those of you who watch America’s Got Talent (and for those of you who don’t), I have a very special announcement.​

Eric Dittelman, semifinalist on last season’s America’s Got Talent​, will be joining me on stage at the Iris Theater in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

When not on television, Eric entertains audiences at colleges, comedy clubs, and private events with his unique blend of mind reading and stand-up and improvisational comedy.

Eric and I initially met online with a few quick Tweets sent back-and-forth.  A few months later, we ran into each other in Las Vegas, and I had the opportunity to see him perform a short set of his material.  Eric is a great mentalist, a very nice guy, and someone you need to see live.

Eric and I will be performing a 90-minute show on Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15.  We will add additional shows as the theater becomes sold out.​

During this 90-minute performance, Eric and I will be sharing the stage performing the best of our material as well as some new material designed specifically for these two dates.​

As of the writing of this post, the details have not been officially released; but tickets will be made available to the public within the next seven days.​  To be the first to know when tickets go on sale and for updates to this event, check back here and “Like” my Facebook Fan Page.

​We’re both looking forward to seeing you at the show!
