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.
David Carter / AgriPlex Group Pty Ltd

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.

Testimonials

On the 3rd and 4th of October this year I organised a state sales conference with the assistance of Corporate Conference International. The purpose of this two day gathering was primarily reward and further motivation for a high performing sales team. An integral component of the conference was the entertainment for the evening state dinner.

Anthony Ackroyd was recommended to me and performed to an audience of 40 sales professionals with very high expectations. Anthony's delivery was nothing short of sensational. He is a gifted comedian with superb talent and an innate ability to include the audience. Without exception my sales team were on a high after Anthony's act and to this day still comment on the night.

"Taking It To The Edge" at Lillianfelds Resort, Katoomba was a resounding success and I personally thank Anthony for his involvement. Anthony comes highly recommended from Mars Confectionery and I welcome interested parties to contact me directly.

Brilliant Anthony. We certainly made the right choice. Your comedy was fantastic!

NSW PARLIAMENT HOUSE LUNCHEON


The TCA asked Anthony Ackroyd to present his show as part of the Association's Annual Dinner. He had the full attention of the crowd of some 315 people who laughed and laughed and laughed. Surely the best possible recommendation for any comedian.

The response since that evening has been one of universal agreement that it was TCA's best event ever. I have no doubt that the performance of Anthony was the main reason for that.

I therefore have no problems in recommending him to anybody considering using his vast talents.

David Malone
General Manager
TERRITORY CONSTRUCTION ASSOCIATION 

Thank you for providing some great entertainment at our recent Annual Management Conference. Your comedy spot after dinner was the highlight of our conference and a terrific way to finish the evening. The 200 strong audience of our senior managers from all over the world found your style of entertainment very funny and you even got them all singing at the end.

Well done and thanks again!
