Conference and Event Organisers looking for inspiring and experienced keynote speakers and MCs often want to see more evidence that the speaker they’re researching is engaging on stage.
Having presented at Conferences in Australia, the United Kingdom, the USA, and Hong Kong, thankfully I have various video examples of my keynote presentations. Some of these represent my evolving style over more than 10 years, while in others you can see how I delivered a specific brief (in one case, as ‘Business Santa’).
For my latest Speaker Profile, Contact Details, and Show Reel you can visit my main keynote speaker page here.
Embracing the Feminine to Create a Robust Legal Business
The Happy Lawyer, Happy Life Retreat, 2018
My most popular current Keynote addresses the fundamental differences between a masculine and a feminine approach to business, helping many business owners (not all of them women) appreciate why the ‘best practice’ they’ve been sold is not actually working for the life they want to lead.

What do Start-up business really need to worry about, why is Brisbane attracting so many new businesses, what are the biggest mistakes I see founders making, and more. Hosted by Joe McCord from Digital8.

Understanding and Managing Business Risk
London New Finance, 2011
Not every event nails it with the audio and lighting, and the most recent LNF event I attended was in a much better venue than this! In the middle of the double-dip Recession (aka the Global Financial Crisis) this was one of the most relevant topics I was asked to speak on.
A Framework for Better Decision Making
The businessDEPOT Christmas Spectacular, 2016
As the final speaker for the final event of the year, my brief was to communicate my core business message in a memorable way. Three years later, some of the attendees from this night still call me ‘Business Santa’.

This panel discussion, including questions from the floor, ended the first day of the 2018 event.
