Speakers Australia and its principal Peter Physick have provided the most convenient and professional service we have encountered.

In over 25 years of our Institute providing members with current, thought provoking and topical issue speakers for our conferences and forums, we have come to rely on the outstanding judgement of Peter and Speakers Australia.

Whether it be entertainers for a broad audience or the most challenging conference topic, Speakers Australia has never failed to deliver. We at the AMInstitute are faced with the dilemma of providing our delegates at conferences with new and exciting presenters year after year and as many of our delegates attend each year, we need presenters and entertainers with new and fresh material.

This challenge has been made obsolete by Speakers Australia as they have taken the time to know our business, our target audience and our history………

The service we received from Speakers Australia has been exemplary from the beginning. Peter Physick and his team worked very hard to ensure that Keith Scott was available to MC our event under what could be described as challenging logistical circumstances given the time constraints we were faced with.

We would highly recommend Peter and his company Speakers Australia.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Peter Physick at Speakers Australia since the year 2000 and have never been let down by his recommendations. I tell Peter the type of speaker or act that we require and he supplies a number of names and CV's of the speakers or acts which fit our requirements. It is as simple as that.

Peter’s professional attitude and friendly manner makes it an absolute pleasure to deal with him. I can not recommend him highly enough to any one or to an organisation which needs help in arranging, organising or advising on the best fit for their special event.

Barry Humphries says "Mr Baker is a mercurial man."

Glenn A. Baker occupies a unique niche in Australian entertainment and public life. Music expert, intrepid traveller, radio and television presenter, best selling author and effusive enthusiast, Glenn’s capacity to elucidate upon his favourite topics with accuracy and humour has been likened to "talking under wet cement".

Since the early 70s when he began his career as a concert promoter and artist manager, Glenn has been active in myriad areas of media and entertainment. The Australian editor of the international Billboard magazine for more than 20 years, he has been a prolific feature writer, presenter and host on music and travel related subjects.

Glenn’s diversity is dramatic. In the mid-eighties he thrice won the BBC’s Rock Brain of the Universe title. In 1995 he took out the inaugural Australian Society of Travel Writers' Travel Writer of the Year award. In 2000 he won the award again and also received a PATA travel writing award and a prestigious China writing award.

A regular on radio and television, Glenn has hosted Baker's Dozen (Foxtel 2001), After Dark (Channel 7), Beat Club (SBS), Music Video (Ten Network) and appeared regularly on The Midday Show, Good Morning Australia, and Mornings with Kerrie-Anne. On radio he has presented on 2WS, 2BL, Triple M, 2JJ, 2SM and Sky Radio.

A celebrated author, journalist and writer, Glenn has written fifteen books, annotated and/or compiled over 500 anthology albums, scripted radio specials and television documentaries, and authored the Rock Academy board game. He has also written for hundreds of major Australian and international magazines and newspapers.

As a public speaker, compere, host and presenter, Glenn’s clients include Toyota Australia, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Inter-Continental Hotels, Virgin Records, Festival Mushroom Records, Malaysia Airlines, Finnish Tourist Board, NRMA Ltd, David Jones, the National Library of Australia, National Trust and Powerhouse Museum. He has anchored seminars for the Australian Society of Travel Writers and has been an annual Australian Day Ambassador for four years.

He has been decreed a Life Member of the ASTW, was the recipient of the music industry’s 2000 Golden Stave Award, and has been honoured on the Australian music ‘Walk of Fame’ at Velvet Waters in Caloundra, Queensland.

Former Prime Minister Paul Keating describes him as being able to "vividly conjure up images and feelings of periods which remind us of episodes in our own lives - like a kind of cultural photographer."
