Biography

Edgar Thatcher is a unique blend of life experience & converging transferable skills. His education and first steps as a businessman was to “design it and build it”. He was trained at university to be a designer (read problem solver) & he practiced his craft in the US & Canada. Focusing on architectural and landscape architectural projects, he found his own clients, designed for them and then built what he had designed.
His calling was the stage. As a performing artist / audio specialist, he has traveled North America singing his own songs and comedically entertaining young and old. A long list of corporate clients and charitable organizations both national and international, have enjoyed his talents. His natural ability is to produce & technically manage events. As a producer/ tech manager he has pitched, planned, written, budgeted, marketed & managed: Live musical & comedy concerts, corporate events, themed entertainment seasonal events & a multi media variety show tour. Promotional videos & DVD’s, music and comedy CD’s,TV / Radio commercials. Website design, an internet enhanced novel and a prototype for an interactive on line cartoon series 


The convergence.
These seemingly divergent paths makes Edgar a useful resource. He solves problems with insight, efficiency & integrity. His intuition, life experience, listening skills & calm mentoring manner, ensures that people feel relaxed & at their best as they present themselves to any size of audience.
Edgar has worked within a variety of business models; small & family business – government – theme parks – volunteer / charitable organizations; each with a unique voice and rhythm. He sees solutions to challenges in three dimensions – PEOPLE / TALENT - TIME - MATERIALS and is never wasteful of these precious commodities. Producer/technician, designer, & performer all converge to create a unique blend that is, Edgar Thatcher.
