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.

Want livelier staff, shorter, more productive meetings, more products, happier customers, increased sales and reduced costs?

Harvard Business Review has identified the greatest issue in business today to be ‘The Creativity Crisis’. Any organisation that requires its staff to create, innovate and solve problems must celebrate, reward, nurture and foster a culture of ideas.

Yvonne Adele's Creative Thinking keynotes and workshops deliver these results. She is a vibrant, clever and professional speaker and MC combing her business experience with a theatrical performance to create a seamless, entertaining and information packed session every time.

Yvonne is the creator of media personality Ms Megabyte and has a career that spans print, television, radio and the Internet.

Yvonne is popular in the corporate speaking arena for her keynote address and complimentary workshop on her creative thinking style: ‘Popcorn Thinking’. Her mission is to demonstrate to the widest possible audience that everyone can access creative thinking. Once you turn up the heat, your brain will pop with ideas like never before!

Ms Megabyte is a regular on Channel 10’s national 9am with David & Kim and was previously with GMA, Today Show, Sunrise and The Panel. Her mission is to take the hard out of hardware, the science out of software and the fear and frustration out of everyday technology.

After 6 years at Microsoft, Yvonne started her own consultancy. Then, in popcorn thinking mode, she generated ideas to find a wider audience for her technology help and realised she could use the media to get her message across to an unlimited number of people. Enter Ms Megabyte - now a household name and author of best-seller, Conquer Your Computer.

Yvonne was a 2006 finalist in the Telstra Business Women’s Awards and is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (an award recognising credible professionals helping the global community). She is also a member of the Vic ICT for Women board which facilitates entry, retention and progression for women in ICT.

Yvonne and Ms Megabyte love getting up in front of an audience and the most common feedback is, ‘She’s a breath of fresh air!’ Though she can talk about most things, her most popular topics are Taming Technology and Popcorn Thinking. She even runs a team-building conference activity called Cubicle Survivor – a trivia quiz with a twist where your people and your industry are the stars of the show.

Yvonne Adele is an entertaining and engaging presenter who brings life to any subject. Exuberant, keen and friendly, she always finds a way to add value for the client. This makes her the perfect drawcard or MC at launches, conferences, exhibitions and other events.
