Destroy Illusions School Assembly
Elementary, Middle & High Schools; Colleges, Universities

Tom Coverly gains students’ attention the moment he walks on stage. During the first part of every assembly, he combines magic tricks, comedy and audience participation as a way to capture attention like you have never seen before. The remainder of the assembly is a heart-to-heart talk using powerful stories and life-changing challenges that impact students long after the assembly is over.

This assembly is captivating, emotional, powerful, and goes beyond the four walls of the school. It’s changing students’ attitudes and causing many parents to ask, “What happened at school that changed my son or daughter for the better?” Teachers often say, “You could hear a pin drop as they listened to Tom. He captured the students’ attention in such an unbelievable way!”

What sets Destroy Illusions School Assembly apart from other assemblies is the creative approach to a variety of topics during one assembly, but the main focus is respecting yourself and others. Over 2.5 million students have witnessed the positive effects of the assembly and how it captivates and challenges ALL students in the audience. Tom Coverly will destroy the illusions and lies young people are believing and remind them of truth and reality. The result? Students leave with more self-worth, wanting to respect others more, choose integrity and character, make wiser choices, stand up against bullying, appreciate the gift of life, and view their lives with newfound purpose! ​

NOTE: Tom makes no mention of politics or religion in any school assemblies.

Destroying Illusions of Life

Imagine being entertained with a purpose! Tom begins this talk with hilarious, mind-blowing illusions involving tons of audience participation; he then transitions into a powerful talk that will motivate your audience in a brand new way to be better employees, better citizens, and to become productive, amazing people who care for those they rub shoulders with day to day. Tom not only destroys the illusions and lies we believe about our lives and jobs, but he reminds us about truth and reality in a brand new way. This is still vague, as “truth and reality” are pretty broad terms.

Don’t Blink

A powerful talk about the shortness of life. When we blink, we can miss something, and Tom uses comedy, illusions and illustrations to drive this point home. This talk is a powerful way of building unity among those we work with and the clients we serve. Get ready to motivate your audience to be a greater version of themselves!


“In my twenty years in education, Tom was the most impactful guest that we have ever had. His illusions captured and amazed our students, but little did they know that he would use that theme to challenge them about real-life illusions. He connected with students in a way that I’ve never seen before. Bravo!”
– David Koma, Principal, Rice Avenue Middle School, Girrard, PA
