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.

Client List
Nobody does it better than Dave ....

Captain Cook was born in Yorkshire and so was Dave Burke. Both discovered one of the greatest countries in the world - Australia. But only one stayed!

At the raw and tender age of 17, in the clubs and dance halls of the North of England, Dave worked with his own pop show band. He played a mean clarinet and wasn’t at all shy about showing his vocal range. 

Yet the urge to go as a solo comedian led him to emigrate to Australia in 1966 which meant leaving his band and a promising Rugby League career with the Halifax RLFC. Being a solid reliable and talented prop forward, the club was anxious to keep Dave’s services, however life in showbiz was to rule his conscious state of mind.

Learning the ropes of being a comedian wasn’t always easy, and Dave has often compared it with his stint in the RAF in Aden in the Middle East.
 Dave’s key to making the audience laugh is simply to talk about his interesting life growing up and even in to today’s modern world. He talks about life and events that every audience can relate to and has a joke for nearly every subject.

Hearing people say “I laughed until I cried” is the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow which every comedian searches for and Dave always finds the pot.
 Dave engages a professional winning attitude, gaining laughter instead of points! "If laughter is the best medicine in the world then Dave Burke is a walking Panadol" was a recent testimonial.  

Now based in Sydney, Dave is in great demand for corporate and MC gigs as well as constantly doing World cruises with P&O and the Princess lines. He also now brings music into his presentation with a few good ‘belters’ on clarinet which gets any room swinging with ‘COMEDY AND MUSIC’.
