>> Onya Soapbox

"In 2005 a partnership was established between the Headroom Project auspiced by the Children Youth and Women’s Health Service and Onya Soapbox to develop and stage the inaugural My Happiness Exhibition. This initiative was designed to raise awareness about young people’s mental health as well as a fundraising event with the proceeds of live and silent auctions going to the Headroom Project to support arts activities for young people. The My Happiness Exhibition was held in June 2006.

Onya Soapbox provided staff and co-ordinated all aspects of planning, staging and finalising the event. From our perspective, the event was efficiently and effectively managed. In working with Onya Soapbox we particularly valued:

  • The Project coordinator actively consulting, liaising and keeping us informed of all stages of the event and seeking our input to develop and target publicity strategies. This ensured that through the My Happiness exhibition important information about young people and mental health was conveyed to the general and arts supporting public.

  • Onya Soapbox staff resourcefulness and extensive networking skills that secured the donation of over 80 pieces of artwork and the support of a number of performers, artists and entertainers. They also secured significant in-kind sponsorship for the venue, printing, website, refreshments and prizes associated with the event.

Working with Onya Soapbox on the My Happiness Exhibition has been a highly successful and worthwhile collaboration not only because of the fundraising outcome achieved but in providing the opportunity for us to work with a highly professional, community-minded management company and staff team. It was an event that was very well received by the artists, entertainers and sponsors who contributed to the event as well as the audience in attendance.

Planning for the 2007 My Happiness Exhibition is well underway and we have every confidence that Onya Soapbox will manage the event in a professional manner. We believe that Onya Soapbox has established a solid foundation for the event and we can only see the My Happiness Exhibition growing from strength to strength as a fundraiser and community awareness raising campaign to support the Headroom Project and promote the positive mental health and young people."

Jacqui spent time finding out what the crowd was like and the type of function. The music was perfect for the occasion and they played all the favorites. Great performers and lovely people. Would highly recommend."

>> Adam Elliot

“Adam was an absolute delight. His talk engaged our people and was a source of humour and inspiration.

His speech capped off a three day program and really brought it all into perspective and ensured the audience left on a high.”
Commonwealth Bank

“Adam is a down-to-earth, intelligent and humorous speaker, a great Australian success story. He had the audience's attention from the outset and presented with the right mix of informative content and humour. Congratulations on your success. I am sure that all our guests are eagerly awaiting your next film.”
PricewaterhouseCoopers

“Adam was absolutely fantastic he told a story that kept everyone entertained and exposed us to a world that we know very little about. Adam stayed and entertained my clients long into the afternoon which was above what we expected, I would strongly recommend him.”
Fuji Xerox

“Adam was fantastic, a huge success and everyone loved him. His story was very funny and captivating. His style was warm and honest. He came across as an everyday guy, doing what he loves, who happened to win an Oscar along the way. He makes you feel like you could do it too!”
Flight Centre

“Adam spoke exceptionally well and clear, he certainly kept the audience captivated with his success story.  The audience comprised of the highest level CEO, MD of our major clients and are fully aware when good hard work is applied success is usually the result as was in Adam's case.  Feedback was they could have listened to him all evening.”

>> Adam Hills

"Hills delivers stand up so effortlessly brilliant you wonder why some comedians even get out of bed"
The Guardian, London

“If you cannot enjoy Adam Hills you cannot have a pulse. Four Stars”
The Scotsman

“Hills’s wit is incisively dry and sharp and his observations are bitingly precise”
Sunday Herald Sun

“[his] interaction with the audience proved so fruitful that they were reluctant to release him back on to the stage”
The Scotsman

“An Adam Hills show is always a festival highlight…with real weight, wit and purpose behind his contagious positivity”
Chortle (UK)
 

>> Adam Rozenbachs

“Think Jerry Seinfeld with a black heart.”
The Age

“His best show yet. In less capable hands, the ‘you-know-how’ and ‘don’t-you-hate-it-when’ gags would be a parade of lame observations. But Rozenbachs has a remarkable ability to laser in on the things we think but don’t say - or are too embarrassed to admit we do - with a fresh, edgy perspective.”
The Age

“Rozenbachs gave the packed house every reason to be cracked up for the best part of an hour. His take on life as a single, then with a girlfriend, and then single, and then possibly with a girlfriend before definitely being left alone, was a hoot.”
Herald Sun

“Razor-sharp banter with his audience, there’s plenty of laughs waiting for you.”
Sunday Herald Sun

“Crave some good, solid, entertaining stand-up? Here’s Adam Rozenbachs.”
The Age

“He writes jokes like the rest of us breathe.”

“What a good night out at the Comedy Festival is all about. Rozenbachs specialty is going places other comedians fear to tread.”
Inpress Magazine

“An unexpected surprise at the Great Grand Final Comedy Debate and we would have no hesitation in employing his services again. Adam was unknown to most of our guests prior to the event however they are all well aware of him now.”

"Alyce, Jeremy, Pete et al were fantastic. They played more than required and were a big hit with the 20 - 60 year age cross section. Our 500 guests were entertained and danced off their feet."
Andrew Gill – Managing Director, Perform Arts Pty Ltd

Heather Clarke – Artistic Director, Allegro Music

“Congratulations to the Alyce Platt Band who performed last night to 1000 guests at Crown for the Committee for Melbourne Dinner. They were absolutely fantastic. Just the right band for the right evening. Everybody loved the music and Alyce herself was delightful. I am really looking forward to booking them again for a similar evening.”

>> Amanda Gore

“Thank you for the most phenomenal session our conference has ever experienced! Amanda was Superb! Our conference attendees were singing her praises and using her techniques throughout the remainder of the conference, which was another 3 days.”
PAHCOM

“Amanda was the most dynamic and insightful relationship speaker I've either hired or listened to. I would not have our first meeting of the Northeast Consulting Partners at Deloitte without her. We changed our dates so she could be with us.”
Director, Deloitte USA

“Amanda Gore proved to be the best speaker we have ever brought in to speak to our organisation's leadership group. Her very motivational and uplifting style has a way of communicating her message, even to those who are difficult to reach. By the end of the session, she had everyone laughing and truly enjoying the "Amanda Experience"
Reading Hospital

“I wish I had photographs of some of the things she was able to get our group to do – a group that is normally disinterested in anything not related to insurance. Our group picked up on the fact that while not directly related to insurance, Amanda’s discussion of connection, leadership, relationships and positive energy could translate into more business as well as enhancing our personal and professional lives. She was outstanding.”
Pacific Life

“Our company tends to be very conservative and, truth be told, probably a little difficult to please. We are a tough crowd. There were undoubtedly 'safer' choices than you... I had nothing to worry about. You were hilarious, amazing, touching and unforgettable. I would have thought it unthinkable to have everyone pleased with your performance, but I have literally not heard one negative word!”
Meldisco

“What a fabulous presentation you gave to our group to close our first day of conferencing !! We need that every time as it was such an energy booster for the night ahead. I still can't believe you had a whole audience of men hugging and singing !! I would never have thought it possible.”
Genesys

“After seeing Amanda inspire our top performers at a recent rewards function, we thought her energy, passion and zest for corporate harmony would be just the recipe to get 120 leaders motivated about the future of our business. Amanda sent the group off on a high, ready and willing to embrace our business strategy and take it to their people. Amanda had the hardest to please leaving the forum with a better understanding of how important perceptions are, more skills in emotional intelligence and committed to changing their own, and their teams behaviours. The feedback from our leaders has been overwhelming with comments like "This was the best forum I have ever attended." Amanda is a fantastic corporate speaker and highly recommended.”
Chief Operating Officer Westpac Group

>> Andrew 'Cosi' Costello

"Cosi perfectly performed his MC role. He went with the flow and did a great job in revving the audience up prior to the author talk. We’ll certainly consider using Cosi again."
Ian Hildebrand - Mount Barker Community Library

“I would like to pass on a huge "Thank you" from CPA Australia for your excellent presentation last night.  You went well over and above what we usually expect from a speaker - making an effort to mingle with the crowd and making a point of saying goodbye to each person at the end of the night. You are a true professional! After last night’s session, I feel that we are in a great position to make a success of it (a regular event) here in Adelaide - and a lot of the credit goes to you!  The feedback I have received from the members this morning has been fantastic.”
Emily Jerome - Event Coordinator – CPA Australia Ltd

"Very professional, got the crowd pumping, excellent MC! He did everything he was asked and had a great rapport with the crowd. Overall, very happy - Cosi would be a definite consideration for 2006."

 “Anna Lumb's hula hoop routine is a spectacular mix of sass and well executed tricks. Truly wonderful, engaging the audience with masterful skill, wit and charm.” 
Arts Hub 

 “Adorable retro schtick.” 
★★★★ The Age, Melbourne

“A fusion of daredevil skills with alt-vaudevillian stage theatrics.” 
Frankie Magazine

“Pocket Rocket circus queen Anna Lumb combines the art of burlesque and circus in a breathtaking trapeze performance.”

“The true standouts of the night though are the circus-style acts. Anna Lumb, channeling the Metropolis robot with gold suit and staccato movements, delivers a virtuosic hula hoop performance.” 
Australian Stage

“A highlight is a hula hoop routine by Anna Lumb who also manages a trapeze solo in a pair of killer stiletto heels.” 
★★★★ The Age, Melbourne

>> Anthony Clarke

“I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your time and effort during the Clipsal Contractor Trip last week. It was an absolute pleasure to not only meet you, but to hear the stories you had to share and advice you had to give. It’s truly a remarkable life's journey that you have travelled on thus far and I believe that the lessons learned from your presentation were invaluable to our audience. We received nothing but positive feedback from our guests who thoroughly enjoyed the experience with you, most notably your sense of humour, mental strength and certainly the demonstrations. I felt it was only appropriate to relay this information back to you. I would personally like to thank you for the photos you allowed me to take with you and your medals, as it is something that I will certainly treasure. 

We at Clipsal wish you all the best in your future endeavours, especially the 2008 Olympic Games which we understand will be your last. We have no doubt that you will take the Gold for Australia. I can assure you that you are greatly respected and admired within the Clipsal organisation and we hope to see you again soon at another one of our functions in the near future. Thank you once again Anthony and the team at Onya Soapbox for making this an enjoyable experience for all involved.” 
Marcus Capaldo - National Contractor Coordinator, Clipsal Communications

"The feed back we received about your performance was outstanding and again we thank you for making the time available to support our club. On behalf of all at Port Adelaide Football Club we wish you all the best in the future and we look forward to your continued support."
Brian Cunningham - Chief Executive Port Adelaide Football Club

"The humour and manner with which Anthony discussed his accident and subsequent lifestyle had the audience quickly at ease. His approach to life as evidenced by his wonderful anecdotes gave many much to laugh about and think about. Anthony was certainly one of the highlights of the Congress. One trade delegate mentioned that he was completely unaware of the time during Anthony's talk, which in the busy lives of these people is a sure indication of the success of the speaker."
Wendy Lacoon - Convention Consultant

"The fact that you held each of your four audience groups captivated illustrates the timelessness and relevance of the messages you delivered. This particular age group is ruthlessly discerning, and highly critical of folk who they perceive as being non-genuine. None of the feedback received at the completion of the conference suggested that your sessions were anything but extremely well accepted. In fact, to a child, when asked to identify the single, most positive thing that would be taken away from the day's programme, the resounding response was "Guest Speaker - Anthony Clarke".  I can only concur with the student population. Your presence, and contributions, were powerful in there impact and have certainly set us all thinking about how we can over come 'negativity of the mind' by focusing on attainable success. Shortly after your visit, one of my students, a leader on the conference day, was hospitalised with a serious, and life threatening, eating disorder. In one of our last conversations at school, she mentioned how determined she had become to beat her illness as a direct result of the inspiration she took from your talk!"
Deb Porter - Highbury Primary School 

"On behalf of the year 11 students that you recently inspired while sharing your amazing life, stories, adventures and unexpected achievements I would like to once again thank you for coming. You have given us a new approach to life and showed us that no matter how hard one's life is, one can always make it better. You have given us new challenges in life that none of us dared to do before. You have touched many of us and will always be embedded in our hearts and memories as "An Unlikely Champion Who Inspired Students."
Ljiljana Ilic - Mt. Carmel College 

"Anthony Clarke was fantastic and everyone enjoyed listening to him speak. Anthony stayed after his speech and spoke with many of our staff which was so fantastic of him."
Gillian Griffith – BHP Billiton

>> Baby et Lulu

“There’s a joie de vivre to this album of songs…  sung in French and often in unison or harmony. C’est tres bon.”
Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald

‘With blithe spirit, old material is made new, yet again”
Alistair Jones, The Australian

"Dobson and Goodridge had the seated audience eating out of the palms of their hands... and pranced off stage to the sounds of a standing ovation" 

The Drum Media

"It is impossible not to be charmed by the hypnotic voices of Baby and Lulu”
Arts Hub

"Baby et Lulu, a couple of unabashed Francophile chanteuses, put on a show that leaves their audience feeling as refreshed as a bottle of sweet white wine rather than Cabaret’s standard night on the red” 

AussieTheatre.com

"They have a tongue-in-cheek rapport and their voices blend beautifully as they roll out hits...Dobson's French adaptation of her hit single Even When I'm Sleeping was a highlight and Goodridge plays a mean fiddle”. 

Adelaide Now

"Arriving to the packed out Festival Theatre main stage, it was clear the très charismatic pairing of sexy songstress’ Abby Dobson and Lara Goodridge, AKA Baby et Lulu, have earned themselves a strong following of baguette-loving-baby-boomers"

The AU Review 

“Baby et Lulu shine a dazzling light on the French songbook”.
ABC Mid North Coast

"Chanteuses Abby Dobson and Lara Goodridge in slinky, tight frocks and showing some leg — as part of the 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival — was advertised as ‘a sassy romance in Paris’ and did not disappoint."

Maggie Tate - Global Media Post

"Lara Goodridge and Abby Dobson combine their amazing talents in an explosion of French chic. After hearing some of their tunes it is hard not to appreciate the talent that is Baby et Lulu”.
Alt Media Group

“Dobson & Goodridge's vocals entwine; two lovesick songbirds in a melancholic pas de deux. Superb... Dobson's husky, yet delicate, quivering vocals put one immediately in mind of berets, checkerboard cafe chairs and long-legged passers-by. Goodridge's assertive, ever-adaptable and versatile violin playing has a clarity that matches her singing”.
Australian Stage

>> Ben Darsow

“After watching Ben for just 5 minutes it’s easy to see why he’s become so massive in Adelaide and Perth… a delivery that instantly warms even the coldest of audiences”
WhatsOnSydney.com, June 2013

“A champion – seriously funny… cleverly crafted humour and slick improvisational skills”
The Advertiser, March 2013

“An excellent command of observational humour… a treat to watch”
Colosoul.com.au – Fremantle, April 2013

“Ben Darsow is one of Adelaide's finest young comedians. Hell, he's probably one of Australia's best at the moment.”
EverGuide.com.au - Sydney, May 2012

“Claims of ‘the next big thing’ can be tiresome but in Ben’s case it’s genuine...If you don’t know who Ben is now, you will.”
WhatsOnSydney.com, April 2012

“Ben Darsow is the real deal, one of those few fellows that genuinely just have funny bones, a larrikin who is clever and relatable with solid observational premises. A star, mark my words.”
Chortle - Wild West Comedy Festival Gala Review, May 2011

“Adelaide’s own Ben Darsow brings his clever brand of humour…hilarious scenarios which make you cringe, grin or a bit of both.”
The Advertiser, February 2011

“Check him out before he heads interstate and doesn’t come back.”
DB Magazine, February 2010

“Indeed a funny bugger…you almost don’t realise how funny he is until you suddenly feel your face aching from having grinned non stop for an hour.”
The Adelaide Theatre Guide, February 2010

“Ben Darsow is one very talented MC. He presented with such a confident and professional energy that the whole room felt they were in safe hands. Ben is so ready to do significant work on radio and television. I suggest people keep an eye on him.”
Katherine Phelps - Adelaide Comedy Review, June 2009

“Ben Darsow was a hit…a hidden gem…hilarious and self deprecating comedy gold.”
The Groggy Squirrel – Melbourne Comedy Festival, May 2009

“Chilled out, friendly and down to earth…keep an eye on this one.”
The Pun – Melbourne Comedy Festival, May 2009

“Go see his solo show before he gets too famous.”
The Independent Weekly, February 2008

“Great audience interaction - confident without being cocky…go see this show.”
Rip it Up, March 2008

“A genuinely funny bugger.”
The Advertiser, March 2006

“A high energy cocktail of coolness and nerdism…an original and entertaining ride to remember…unique and hilarious.”
The Messenger, February 2006

“Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our function on Saturday night; your contribution was most certainly appreciated by all. You provided us with many laughs and many of which were the talk around our coffee machine this morning. The service on the night created a few hiccups which put us behind time, the wedding next door was definitely a distraction, but these things happen and we just have to work with it, and you did that! It was lovely getting to know you Ben. Good luck with all your ventures for this year. We wish you great success.”
Louise Howie, Hyundai Motor Company Australia 

“Ben was fantastic! The audience loved him and they're a hard group to please. He was so easy to work with and all round great guy. Would definitely recommend him for other events. Thanks for organising him and for the follow up. Was a great night for our corporate sponsors!”
Natalie - Events and Coterie Coordinator - Adelaide Crows

“Thank you so much, yes the event was wonderful. We raised the most we have in this year than any of the years before so that is great for ICU.  Ben was amazing; he was perfect for this event with his material which he tailored to sport and men! It was hilarious and I had the pleasure of sitting at Ben’s table and he is a really nice guy!  We have never had a comedian before at the golf day so I think that made it a lot less corporate and a lot more fun for our audience. Everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously, we have such great supporters and sponsors and to show them a good time as well with Ben coming along was just incredible. I’d like to thank Ben and yourselves for your amazing work and we hope to keep in contact for next year’s event. 
Thank you again.” 
Lisa Wilson - Donor Development Officer - Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fund

>> Ben Price

“I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic performance Ben, or should I say Tom Cruise, John Howard, even Arnie!!!  You truly are an amazing impersonator - the feedback we received after your performance was overwhelming to say the least: brilliant, hilarious - book him again.  Ben, keep up the great performance and truly hope to engage your services again.”

Fairfax Community Newspapers

”Absolutely sensational! Everyone had a fabulous evening and would recommend Ben for any event if they are looking for the ‘Wow’ factor.”
Microsoft

”Ben has an amazing ability to capture the essence of a character; how a person looks, talks, walks and feels. He could probably even reproduce how they smell, but that would probably cost extra. Ben doesn’t just impersonate someone, he inhabits them.”
Tom Gleisner - The Panel, Thank God You're Here

”...we've found a replacement for the Channel 9 sports department...Ben can do them all!”
Triple M Radio Melbourne

>> Bob Downe

"The magic of the man behind the mask.”
The Studio

“Whether serious or madcap, almost every line was delivered direct to the eyes of an audience member, yet Trevorrow's innate likeability allowed him to do this without any sense of confrontation. Perhaps Downe will let him out more often."
John Shand - Sydney Morning Herald

“Bob was a huge success and the crowd loved him.  He made a big difference to the atmosphere on the night and we were thrilled with his energy and personality.  He also made the effort to make some comments that were linked to the event which increased his impact - and he was absolutely hilarious.”
Karin Dunsford - Walford School

>> Brad Taylor

"Brad's story was an inspiration to all. His conquest of life’s hurdles gives meaning to hope and truly tell a tale of mental strength.

I could have listened to Brad for hours."
Kerstin Thuresson - Event & Volunteer Coordinator, The Smith Family

“Many of the girls said that they now thought it was sometimes possible to achieve the impossible. Your talk certainly made them think. Some of them also mentioned all the things you had to cope with. They're going to think twice about complaining about trivia. They now also understand what determination and resilience mean. Another wonderful achievement on your part.”
Irena Atherton – Annesley College

“They really enjoyed your session. Will be in touch early next term to hopefully organise another session with the rest of yr 10."
Jo Surman – St Marys College

“We are mindful that it can require a great deal of courage to share with such honesty and grace, the challenges and triumphs you have encountered since having acquired a brain injury and participated in rehabilitation.

“We are grateful for the time and effort that you put into preparing your talk. The insights and reflections that you shared were immensely useful to both current and former clients, their families, and the staff that were present.”

“In planning for our national financial planning conference we were looking for a speaker who could demonstrate the principle of ‘practice makes perfect’. When we met Brennon there was no doubt that he was the ideal fit.

Brennon engaged the audience on his journey to success, allowing them to draw their own comparisons between his experiences and their careers.”
BT Funds Management

“With all the challenges that the global financial crisis has created in our business, it was important for our franchisees to work ‘on the basics’ in their business. Brennon was outstanding and really aligned the message for the day. Brennon talked about building a strong foundation in sport, which was brought back to business. Our franchisees left the session both cheering and standing with applause to Brennon's performance. The message really resonated with the franchise network. Well Done Brennon!”

Congratulations on a job well done and I appreciate all your hard work. I will definitely be in touch for future events.”
CPA Australia

“Brennon is one of the few presenters that walks the talk. His international success as a gymnast and his presentation of his journey should not be missed.

It was indeed an honour and a rare privilege to have you as our guest speaker.”

Although, she said that she is still getting used to our Aussie humour (she's a New Yorker), so missed some jokes, but still enjoyed it. Overall, a big success.

Anastasia Yianni - Public Relations Manager – Myer

The subtle message that you incorporated also worked very well, as the staff felt that they weren’t being lectured to.”

Dorinda shared her personal background and experiences, as well as her many observations of human behavior, where she spoke candidly of some people’s reflection of love and acceptance, while others display cruelty and loathing. Dorinda's messages about cultural diversity are always potent and memorable gems to treasure.”

The interactive multimedia approach was particularly engaging. Your topics and examples were very apt for an engineering type business, but even more relevant were you comments and role modelling of the importance of storytelling for leaders. You also showed that we must embrace rapid innovation, and we should see this as opportunity, not threat. All the best for 2008.  May the new technology not outstrip your ability to humanise it!"

“Elliot’s contribution, particularly his handling of question time, proved he was the ideal choice for turning a potentially heavy session into a real conference success.”
Bill McCausland, Retail Services Manager, Safeway Supermarkets

“Elliot Goblet has had an invaluable role in our client briefings for the past four years. His importance to us is his ability to pull together a variety of relevant thoughts and use humour to deliver an important corporate message to a discerning audience.”
Michael Tratt, Principal, Australian Private Capital

“I was impressed by his research into our industry: what makes it tick, who the key players are, what the likes, dislikes, bugbears and challenges mean for us all. We were constantly entertained by his ability to sum up the points of interest and points of humour, and keep the group fired up over a long draining series of presentations, workshops, meals and drinking. He ensured our other guest speakers were professionally and humourously introduced and made to feel part of the team.”
Phil Hawkins, Sales & Marketing Director, Yamaha

“It has been a pleasure to have Elliot Goblet perform at various corporate and coterie functions at the Club, and the feedback from our clients has been tremendous.”
Adrianne Sarkozy, Richmond Football Club

“Many of the guests are still talking and laughing about the comments Elliot made, especially the personalised ones. We look forward to having another function in the near future and have Elliot’s words of wisdom.”
Tim McCallum, Dealership Practice Manager, AXA

“On the night Elliot was very funny and greatly added to the success of the conference. We would recommend his services to anyone.”
Gavin Tory, National Manager, Lubricants & Specialty Products, Caltex

“You researched our organisation thoroughly prior to the conference and integrated well with our staff throughout the course of the day, giving a great and specialised result. All our people really enjoyed your humour, the quirky one-liners and your ability to personalise the jokes really added to the fun.”
George Zammit, Managing Director, Catalyst Recruitment

>> Emily Smart

“Emily Smart & The Clever Girls were terrific, dishing up a wealth of material, cleverly fusing both melody and ideas for a very appreciative audience. Smart’s voice is pure gold and her new single, ‘You And I’ is a brilliant piece, so easy to lose yourself within, making it impossible for many to leave without buying the CD! Final Word: Awesome.”

>> Emma Hack

"We were fortunate to have engaged Emma Hack to deliver an inspired body art installation as part of our exhibit at the 2013 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. Emma was fantastic to work with; relaxed, accommodating and very professional. Emma’s design exceeded our expectations and she was a huge drawcard, attracting media and general interest from show participants. I would be happy to recommend Emma to any future clients." Euan Laird - Chief Executive Officer
Nursery and Garden Industry Association of Australia


"Just a wee note to try and express my gratitude - though surely words are insufficient. Emma, you went beyond the call, times a thousand. You are a true artisan while also being a consummate professional and a wonderful spirit. You have magnificent poise and joy in you and were generous enough to also share that with us. Thanking you infinitely."
Natasha Pincus – Starkraving Productions
(Goyte Video Clip - 2011)

"I wanted to email to say a HUGE thank you for doing SUCH an amazing job with the models on Wednesday for the Westfield Campaign. Westfield were absolutely thrilled with the results and how gorgeous and life-like the models outfits looked! As I’m sure you’ve seen, we’ve had some amazing media coverage of the event, in large part thanks to you and your assistants – please also thank them and your models from me and the team. Thanks again Emma, and hope to work with you again in future."
Elizabeth Reid - Senior Account Manager, Haystac

"Emma Hack and model Tegan were a pleasure to have at this event and were a stand out for the hosts, Urbantech Finance. Not only because of Emma’s skills but her down to earth personality made her a pleasure to have as a guest at the event once she had completed the body art. Emma and Tegan visited the tables and talked to guests when the body art was complete which the audience loved."
Sam Cocks - Urbantech Finance CEO
(Book Smarts vs Street Smarts Debate)

"Emma Hack’s body painting work at an intimate Panasonic @ Work launch event added colour to the room and was a great way to entertain guests"

>> Eric Bailey

“I am a young, black Zimbabwean lady and as a result I experienced a lot of discrimination and racism at the school I was teaching at. During the week before the conference, I had decided to quit the teaching profession, however, I still had to attend the conference as the school had booked and paid for it in previous months. Your talk helped to rekindle the love and passion I had for teaching children which was the very last ingredient I needed after all the other good practical lectures I'd had throughout the weekend, for where there is no love, there is nothing. I have been teaching now with that passion and love for over a year. I love my job and I love my kids.”
Michelle, Teacher, Queensland Education

“Eric Baileys ‘A Winning Attitude Seminar’ in June 2009 was a dynamic, motivating and emotional rollercoaster ride. Five minutes into his seminar and we were hooked! Eric shared his story through active participation which was most effective. The impact he had on our work group was amazing and it was the topic of discussion for many weeks in the office. We now have the winning attitude.”
Julie Willett, Administration Assistant, Toowoomba

“A colleague from my company asked me to join her to see a motivational/activational speaker by the name of Eric Bailey. I remember saying to her that I was a little tired of the same motivational speeches and that I really wasn’t that interested. She finally convinced me and I’m so glad that she did. Eric was a breath of fresh air in the motivational speaking world. The particular workshop I attended was dedicated to professional development – how to move forward in life with a different attitude – an attitude that enables you to rise above the crowd, meet challenges head on and be passionate in everything you do. This particular workshop was also interactive and engaging – I’ve never seen dancing before at a motivational workshop! I came away feeling recharged, inspired and more importantly, a winning attitude. It's been 4 weeks since the workshop and I still have the buzz and the tools to face my fears! Thanks Eric.”
Lisa Broadbent, Executive Assistant, Parsons Brinckerhoff 

“I don’t think that I have ever seen an auditorium of 500 delegates so moved and I have attended over 20 years of corporate conferences. The audience was on their feet, some people with tears in their eyes at the conclusion of Eric’s dynamic and moving presentation.”
Suzane Emanuele, Director, Watermark Real Estate Xchange

>> Etype

“Every so often some new talents emerge, destined to do great things. Such is the case with Etype.

I wholeheartedly support them and wish them a well-deserved bright and successful future.”
Maestro Tommy Tychp A.M., M.B.E.

>> Faulty Towers

“In short, this was a night when tears rolled down faces, sides ached and split, and many a fine lash full of mascara turned into a bad Kiss caricature. Hysterical.  A show not to be missed - truly."
Barfly, Cairns Post  

"We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening with Basil, Sybil and Manuel.  Almost choked at one stage because I was laughing so much!  Well done!!  Amazing how they adapted to suit the situation."
Asoki Jayawardhana, Public show audience members - Alexander's Metropolitan Motor Inn

"Please thank all the crew who helped out at the Faulty Towers night for our opening night at Seasons ... we were thrilled with the night and can't wait to organise the next one ... Mildura loved them!!  So thanks and hope to see you all again soon."
Mandy and Andy Williams, Owners "Seasons" Restaurant - Mildura

"This is the 4th time I have seen the show, so certainly am a fan.  I have seen 3 different crews.  A great laugh, and enjoyed by everyone in our group that we have invited each time."
Sandra Hendricks, Public Show audience member - Coffee Club, Mt Gravatt

"We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and thought that the person doing Basil was as close a look-a-like as one could get.  Mannerisms, stance, tonality of voice etc spot on.... The interaction was spot on and I found myself at one stage holding a fire extinguisher for Basil.  We laughed and laughed and appreciated the sort of sub-plots entwined.... In all a great night's entertainment."
Barry Moore, Guest at St Pauls on Leichhardt Public show

"The Faulty Towers show was Terrific!!!  Everyone had a great laugh and really got into the show.  The actors were excellent, ad-libbing as they went.  How can we top this for next years conference???"
Sandra Stack - Retracom

"Fantastic performance! The performers looked, sounded and carried out the whole feel of the Faulty Towers program. Well done to the performers!"
Simone Harvey - IGA Distribution

“A truly new comedy festival encounter awaited my arrival at the Pumphouse Hotel in Fitzroy. This performance, which is travelling to various hotels around Melbourne through till the end of April, was more than just stand-up; it was more than a comedic theatre performance and it was certainly more than a pub meal. Fifty or so perplexed faces waiting expectantly outside the venue’s doors gave way to looks of sheer panic once it became known exactly what would take place in the subsequent two hours. And the basic premise is this: step inside the restaurant and you step inside the comical walls of Basil and Sybil Faulty and their hapless waiter Manuel. Whilst you try and consume a three-course meal, the trio of  comedic characters attempt, through both improvisation and skilled scripting, to bemuse, bewilder and baffle the audience through memorable antics from the famed television show, Fawlty Towers. All the fabulous frolics – from Manuel dropping plates and misunderstanding almost everything, to Basil’s gambling and secretiveness, and Sybil’s ridiculously high-pitched squeal – it’s all covered in two hours of fast-paced laughs and utter chaos.”
Age Online, 12 April 2007

>> Felicity Ward

“Her brilliance shines. This is one of the funniest shows I've seen this year.”

“Thank you very much for a fantastic job on Tuesday night. I have heard nothing but praise for the whole event and particularly your performance. What people found most intriguing was your rope trick and the fact that you were able to keep the whole event running smoothly and for this I am very grateful. I hope that we can cross paths again in the future.”
Jo Gilbert, South Australian Dairyfarmers' Association – Dairy Industry Awards Gala Dinner, August 2007

>> Gentlemen Prefer Curves

"Sweet Adelines are not the easiest audience to entertain because we are an international organisation of women, every one one of whom sings and performs. So finding a guest act to meet our exacting standards and provide a change from our own barbershop music at our Adelaide Showcase of Champions was a challenge. However, everyone was absolutely knocked out by the girls of Gentlemen Prefer Curves ! Gentlemen Prefer Curves hit just the right 'note' of spicey humour, great audience rapport and fabulous voices. Their varied performance took us through the gammut of emotional responses, from crying with laughter to being arrested and surprised by the depths of feeling they touched in us. The fact that they themselves seemed to be enjoying things as much as we were added greatly to the synergy between them and us. We have no hesitation in recommending Gentlemen Prefer Curves to anyone who is looking for entertainment at a highly skilled and talented level, that also creates and enhances the 'common touch' with their audience."
Sandy O'Neill - Sweet Adelines Conference Co-ordinator

"Gentlemen Prefer Curves were superb, creating exactly the right atmosphere at our Conference dinner. They even managed to promote audience participation. All our dinner guests thoroughly enjoyed their show, so much so that the members of Gentlemen Prefer Curves ran out of business cards when they were besieged after the show. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Bravo!"
Andrea Lloyd - Grains Council of Australia

"One of the funniest and most beautifully sung cabaret acts I have ever seen - one classy show. WOW!"

Narelle Whitaker - Delfin Lend Lease

>> Glenn Cooper

"Glenn's presentation went really well, everyone was so involved in his talk that their desserts sat untouched in front of them. Being an SA owned company and a small one against bigger, oversea companies, he really appealed to our audience. I would highly recommend him."
Hannah Trevilyan | Member Services Manager
First National Real Estate

"Glenn was fantastic. He kept the audience entertained with his stories as well as presenting some very interesting facts about the Coopers business and how they plan their marketing/sponsorship/advertising to compete with the other giants of the industry.  It was very relevant to a lot of the audience members as they were from small-medium wineries.  I'm sure they were able to draw a number of parallels." 
Annie Mitchell - The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia

"Glenn Cooper brought a great case study to the conference and was able to demonstrate to the audience the importance of not losing touch with your people and the importance of branding your product. The presentation demonstrated that no matter how large your organisation gets, you can still maintain a positive culture."
Des Penny - Proteus Enterprises

"As one of the guest speakers at our recent Business Development Boot Camp Glenn Cooper's presentation was extremely well received by our participants. Glenn's annotation of his family history, advertising processes (in particular the key focus of their marketing) and general snippets from the daily running of a progressive South Australian business was "excellent value" for many fellow business owners."
Lyn Smith - LambertsBRS

He knew the key messages about the event, was familiar with his role and kept on track with messages. We have had a lot of feedback from guests, all saying that he was a natural as a host and was fantastic in that role. He was genuinely enthusiastic about the night which came across in interviews and when he was meeting guests, media, fans. Guy was a pleasure to work with.”

"My legs are still shaking after your presentation today – it was life changing, so thank you very much. I loved the combination of actually seeing moments from your journey, and hearing the lessons you learnt along the way, and the inspiring quotes. Thank you so much for sharing your story as it is certainly jaw dropping."
Ruth Morgan

"What I loved most about Heather's presentation was that we not only got to hear her speak about her amazing experiences but we also saw real footage of them (as she spoke) which made you feel like you were there witnessing it first hand. Heather is an amazing woman and a fabulous speaker with loads of passion and energy. I couldn't help but rush home to tell my husband and two children about her story. I walked away feeling inspired and empowered!"
Australian Institute of Management – Women in Management

“The best keynote I’ve heard.”
Gary Cobley, OPTUS

“Hi Heather, You spoke to us yesterday at the Westin and I just wanted to say how moved I was by listening to your story. You’ve really inspired me to stop saying ‘can’t’ and push myself to conquer the things I fear (work, social, physical). I’ve just bought your book online and am really looking forward to reading it. I’ve even called my sister in London (another professional woman pushing herself every day to overcome her fears), to say listen to what THIS woman did! You’re a true inspiration. Once again, thank you for sharing your amazing story.”
Stacey White, The LiTMUS Group

>> Ian Dixon

‘Ian Dixon's professionalism and knowledge of genre and story are exemplary. It has been a joy co-writing with him as our skills interrelate seamlessly. I have also provided sound design for his film and TV projects previously, so we have a strong working relationship.’
Craig Carter, Writer, Sound Designer, 5x AFI Award Winner

‘Ian has always impressed me as a deep and diligent thinker, who understands the fundamental relationship of story to the variety of disciplines in which he excels. Through his extensive experience, he brings a comprehensive viewpoint that uniquely synthesises the processes of story creation, development, and performance delivery. More than anyone else I know, he has a singular ability to combine a thorough academic understanding with an ability to talk about story in an uncomplicated way… I have no doubt you will find him as entertaining a speaker on the subject of story as he is a precise and critical analyser.’
Stephen Mitchell, Australian Writer’s Guild Award Winner

‘The modern world is full of noise, with ever expanding social media, 24 hour news cycles and relentless promotion and marketing of everything from soft drinks and sports events to political leaders, protest and violent revolution. Amongst all the noise and chatter the one thing that's needed for all of us is clarity, particularly in business. How do we understand clearly what it is we have and how do we tell what it is, clearly and simply to the people who are important to us? We have to find a narrative that our audience understands and connects with: in short we have to be able to tell a compelling story. Ian Dixon knows about story, about how it works, what techniques you use to pull an audience towards you and how you then hold their attention, getting them to invest their time and attention in understanding what it is you have to say, transforming told information into a shared experience.’
Stephen Cleary: Internationally Acclaimed Story Editor and Genre Expert

‘I worked alongside Dr Ian Dixon for three years at Qantum College, between 2009 and 2012. As a lecturer, Ian is engaging, dynamic and dedicated. The level of focus and expertise that Ian provides to screenwriting students has been an inspiration. Ian has also offered invaluable guidance to me in my postgraduate research project. His intelligence, energy and wit have been a highly valued gift over the years.’
Justine Wallace, Lecturer, Animator, Filmmaker

‘Ian Dixon has been my script editor on several feature scripts I have written over the last few years.  Due to his guidance and profound knowledge of the writing technique I can honestly say I have improved as a writer.  I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to other writers who want (and need) to challenge themselves to improve.’
Brendan Black: Linguist/Writer

‘Ian Dixon’s profound knowledge of storytelling turned my words on paper into a structured, concise and beautiful story world. He holds in him not only a paramount knowledge of character and story, but also of human nature and behaviour. Ian forces the writer to a deeper understanding of the lives of the character and the plot, thus evolving the stories we tell into rich, bountiful tales. He is a storyteller, and the journey I have taken with the written word through Ian’s wisdom has opened my mind into even more limitless possibilities.’
Sally McDonald: Writer, Actor, West Hollywood, CA

‘Ian Dixon is one of those rare speakers who's got it all: a warm and easy style of delivery, well researched material, good humour and immediate rapport with his audience.  Dixon's mastery of the storytelling is evident in his delivery and his deep knowledge as both a practitioner and a PhD. Over 25 years of professional acting experience makes the speaking podium a natural place for him to be.’

He presented in a confident and relaxed style, demonstrating an excellent balance between conveying a message and delivering the humour and personalised touch that connected with his audience. The response of the staff at our meeting to Jeremy’s presentation, both at the time and subsequently was fantastic. I have no hesitation in recommending Jeremy, whose capacity to talk in relation to sport, his own experiences, the importance of training, dedication, commitment and team work, is simply first-class.”
Philip Wade, NSW Marketing Manager, AGI

"Jeremy Rolleston is one of Australia’s most unique athletes, having played in the top tier of professional rugby and then switching sports to represent Australia in Bobsleigh at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino - where he steered the ‘green machine’ two-man bob to the equal best result in Australian Olympic history. No other Australian athlete has ‘packed down’ in professional rugby and then risked their life sliding through an ice shaft at 150km/h - and gone back for more. Jeremy is a first class motivational speaker, who presents with passion, excitement and a strong sense of pride and humility. He easily connects with any audience, large or small, to business people and children alike with his unique stories and energetic style. Jeremy offers a range of presentations and continues to work with the AOC, adding enthusiasm and enjoyment to many of our events."

>> Jimeoin

The combination of your story with its message hit home with all those delegates (even those whom didn’t speak English) on what you can achieve if you just focus on it. What most impressed me was your willingness to associate, talk and get involved with the people from our convention, and for that I sincerely thank you. While our participants Beach Volleyball skills did not match their enthusiasm, praise must be passed on to your team for their involvement in capping off a great week for our Organisation. The whole package! A story, a message, involvement and an attitude to suit!"

>> Kylie Gillies

“Your co-hosting of the National Travel Industry Awards last Saturday night was nothing short of superb. In fact the plethora of positive comments that are now flowing into the office bear witness to that, and between us two, I think you have established a whole new fan base! I am very appreciative of the way in which you both kept the event moving along; injected humor and - to my personal amazement - kept the background noise level to the lowest that it has possibly been in years. In short you did a fantastic job for us, and I know the Board and I and Marie are very appreciative of the effort you made. If I may be so bold as to say so, you absolutely mesmerized many in the audience with your presentation and the professionalism with which you carried the night off along with Larry has been the hallmark of the praise that we have received following the evening. The two of you comparing together were indeed a "class act" if I may use that term, and one which will be long remembered by the industry. Again my many thanks and I trust that we will have the chance to catch up again and work together again in the future.”
Mike Hatton, The Australian Federation of Travel Agents Ltd.

>> Lehmo

“Lehmo is a fantastic personality to work with and ensured that the our dinner was a huge success, I would recommend him to any organisation looking to put some fun and enthusiasm into an evening.”
Greg Stirling, Senior Brand Manager, Jacob’s Creek Wines

“Lehmo is to be congratulated for his preparation and delivery as it resulted in a super gig and we had lots of positive feedback from a potentially tough audience. At a charity golf day there was nothing below par in Lehmo’s performance! We greatly appreciate his support for our Foundation and do not take this for granted. He will do us any day.”
Mark McGill, General Manager, McGuinness McDermott Foundation

“I have been meaning to email you all day to thank both you and Lehmo. I’m pretty sure it was the most successful event in the 2 years the Committee has been organising these functions in terms of numbers attending, and we received lots of positive feedback afterwards. I think all of us could relate to some of the things Lehmo dreaded about being a ‘professional’, which made the talk relevant as well as very funny.”
Stephanie Burke, Young Professionals of South Australia

“A seasoned performer on the comedy circuit, Lehmo does not disappoint. His show is a safe bet for quality entertainment he gives a relaxed performance and interacts with the audience. After starting with some improvised material, Lehmo goes into his ‘confessions’, where he recounts a series of stories from his time growing up in the country and entering the comedy profession. He gives a polished performance which leaves the audience all smiles.”
Dale Clarke, The Messenger

“Lehmo’s Fringe show, ‘Confessions of a Harmless Mind’, was funnier than a woman with a bottle on her head (if you don’t get the joke, you better go see his show). Lehmo exceeds expectations with a natural stage presence and plenty of gags from his own experience. Performed upstairs at the Rhino Room, the intimate setting created a bond between performer and audience, which Lehmo used well to his advantage. Refreshing and funny, one of the funniest moments of this show was a clip of Lehmo’s short stint on ‘Red Faces’ a year or two ago. Lehmo’s strength is storytelling, rather than jokes with punch lines, and by avoiding bad language and sexual innuendo he reaches a broad spectrum of people.”
Bonnie Hallion, Independent Weekly (Indaily)

“Lehmo is one of Adelaide’s favourite funny men, and it’s not hard to see why. He’s Aussie, he’s confident, and he’s willing to take the piss out of himself. ‘Confessions’ is a litany of embarrassing anecdotes of the ‘of course, I was drunk at the time’ variety. Anyone who likes beer and footy and blokey banter will love it - and there is something in it for the rest of us as well. Lehmo’s trip down the shame file in memory lane includes an appearance on ‘Hey Hey It’s Saturday’s Red Faces’ – it’s a corker of a confession. Upstairs at the Rhino Room is a cosy little spot for humiliating revelations.”
Tory Shepherd, The Advertiser

“It’s true what Lehmo said: many of life’s tragedies, mishaps or faux pas can be turned into great dinner party conversation. But for a comedian, that same mishap can become ten minutes of hilarious comedy, and Lehmo isn’t holding back at all as he confesses some of the more stupid moments of his life. Sharing some footage of a ‘Hey, Hey, It’s Saturday Red Faces’ appearance was funny, but his reasons behind doing it in the first place were even more amusing. Lehmo shared some of the mastermind ideas that teenage boys can come up with for a slice of drunken fun, and even confessed a 14-year-old ripper secret that had everyone in stitches. But, if you want to see the biggest confession of them all, head to his show on Wed Mar 21 when the mate he’s been keeping the secret from will actually be in the audience. What a hoot!”
Rip It Up

“A rare talent who hits the target every time - Lehmo hands out the laughs in an inspired and memorable fashion.”
The List, Glasgow

“With serious questions being asked of the motivations behind the war in Iraq, Lehmo’s show is not only timely, but also insightful, political and hysterical.”
Liz Walsh, The Advertiser

>> Li Cunxin

“Personally I found Li excellent to work with and a thoroughly lovely man with a great story.”
AMP

“A fresh and captivating presentation proof of the power of determination and taking the most of opportunities given to you in life. The delegates were totally transfixed by Li's powerful and uplifting story. Few speakers have his ability to engage an audience with a rich life story so beautifully told. One of the highlights in a highlight filled conference; professional and entertaining. Might still be light on his feet but his story is full of emotion and passion.”
AMP

“Li presented his amazing life story with poise, passion and dignity, infused with humour. Even though Li must have told his story many times before, his pain, battle and torment were still evident and his dramatic and passionately told story had a great impact on many of those present. Feedback sheets from the conference were overwhelmingly positive insofar as Li's presentation was concerned. Li very generously signed copies of his book and spent time acknowledging all those who spoke with him. He was a delight.”
Anglican Diocese of Melbourne

>> Liam Power

>> Lindi Jane - Ventriloquist and Puppeteer

“Ventriloquist to the stars, you have to see her perform, the lovely Lindi Jane.”
Peter Goers

“This exceptional ventriloquist holds the attention of her young audience with ease. They relate to her colourful characters and the fun of audience participation. Snaps the crocodile, the character around which the club is built, is a cheeky, bright and breezy persona. Along with his friends the wombat, with a lost voice, and the dog, who is cool, he keeps the show rolling. Lindi Jane knows how to appeal to her young fans and has them volunteering to act as trees and perform magic tricks for her. They happily clap and sing along. This show is fun for all ages and is well worth a visit.”
Rating: 4.5 stars (out of 5)

“Lisa Wilkinson assisted Shell in its fuel economy campaign aimed at bringing fuel economy/driving tips to Australian drivers. To celebrate the release of the fuel formulation to the Australian market, Shell asked Lisa to participate in a celebrity-consumer challenge drive around Sydney’s Blue Mountains. Lisa was an enthusiastic participant, someone who embraced the joyful spirit of the campaign and welcomed the challenge competitively but with a constant smile. Shell very much appreciated Lisa’s professional and positive approach to its fuel efficient campaign, and would strongly recommend Lisa for all future promotions and campaigns. Lisa was a very positive ambassador for Shell a credit to the campaign.”
Shell

“Lisa really did add value for our delegates. Despite not having experience in the Financial Services sector, Lisa made an excellent Chairman for our sessions - clearly as a result of much research and preparation for the event. As an MC of our key social function - the Charity Gala Dinner - she was great fun and really managed to motivate our guys into being extremely generous. The feedback from delegates has all been positive.”

>> Me 'N Me Mate

“Lovers of the old Australian bush culture will love singing and toe-tapping along to Me ‘N Me Mate. Performing favourite Australian ballads, songs and stories from such greats as Banjo Paterson and Henry Lawson, the show is jam-packed with Aussie humour and a dinky-di spirit. Chris John and Elliot Howard are genuinely likable as they adapt to a range of outback characters with that lovable Aussie larrikin attitude embedded in the legends of our forefathers. The music is energetic and engaging and a simple, yet effective set creates a bush-like atmosphere in the comfort of an intimate pub setting. The predominantly older crowd willingly joined in with the songs, both the classics and the original. Of note were the encore calls, to which the “mates” happily obliged.”
Hannah Silverman – Adelaide Advertiser

I wanted someone with a story that highlighted that no obstacle should get in the way of achieving your goals. Michael's presentation definitely achieved these outcomes.’
Under 19 National Cricket Carnival Dinner, SA Cricket Assoc

‘As the project managers for a three-day Deutsche Bank conference, we needed a great keynote dinner speaker who could also lead physical sessions the next day to reinforce the workshop messages. Michael was perfect. He was entertaining, personable, motivational but, more notably, he took the time to understand his role in the overall project. He’d had a cycling accident the week before but even that didn’t stop him. As if skiing on one leg isn’t tough enough – Michael also had one arm in a sling. Great to deal with, wonderful to listen to and very talented.’
Jeff Bond - Lane 4

>> Michael Pascoe

“The head of the SA Zone was a little apprehensive with having Michael because of what has been said about AMP in the news. So he was pleasantly surprised to find Michael was very professional, and very well received. He reinforced the message to keep things in perspective in today’s current market. Taking into consideration the type of audience and topic he amazed them with his good sense of humour and story telling. What came across positively was the fact Michael took the time to stay around and mingle.”

>> Michael Slater

“This was the seventh North Shore Heart Research function and Michael from the outset was the total professional. From the minute he walked in he was very giving of his time and extremely receptive to the many requests made of him throughout the afternoon. As a keynote speaker he worked very well with the master of ceremonies (Ray Seager) and had the audience captivated for the duration of his presentation. Granted that the audience was mainly corporate and had a vested interest in what Michael had to say but he was able to adapt his anecdotes to the guests very well. An extremely humble, considerate professional; myself and all the team would like to thank Michael for adding a special touch of magic to the day.”

Mike is very valuable at helping challenge whatever your conventional wisdom is, and in setting out a clear set of views on how things might shape in months and years to come. I recommend him highly."

>> Peter Alexander

“Peter was a brilliant speaker and the audience bonded with him. He was funny and entertaining but also spoke of the potential disasters that were averted and became learning curves. I had spoken with Peter prior to his speaking engagement, requesting that he tell his story "warts and all" which he did on a level that resonated with the audience. Question and answer time was the longest in our Business Week history, perhaps it was the pair of Peter Alexander pyjamas that Peter bought along for the most unusual question he has been asked! Following his talk, Peter was mobbed like a movie star, I'm sure he thought he would never get out of the Karralyka Centre.”
Maroondah City Council

>> Peter Baines

“We thought Peter was success for our event. His story was well received and inspirational and many people came up to the table afterwards thanking Peter and asking more about how to become involved.

John Dorward – Prescott Securities 2015

I stayed around for the 2 hour networking drinks after the conference and for the entire time the talk was around how inspirational you were and what a great way it was to open a conference. Everyone loved the “Shared Experience” message and rest assured you have motivated many to find a way to implement such an initiative into their businesses. Well done mate, and rest assured it’s not only the lives of the kids in Thailand that you change, you have a massive impact on all those that hear you speak!”

>> Quentin Kenihan

"Quentin checked out the Dinner venue with me, and after freshening up, made his way back to welcome the delegates during pre-dinner drinks. This is one area that I was most impressed with, as throughout his short stay, Quentin endeavored to meet every delegate and have a chat. At the dinner, he visited every table, some more than once. I don't think many guest speakers would have gone to this trouble with genuine interest and enthusiasm as Quentin provided. It was good to have 2 segments as Guest speaker, it balanced the dinner well, and people were not shy at asking questions. A number of wine gifts were distributed to those participants. Quentin's speech went down well, as did his impromptu answers. Toward midnight - Quentin and I had a go at singing 'Unchained Melody' to remaining diners. How he wasn't snatched up by Australian Idol - I don't know! The following morning after breakfast, Quentin visited the Conference area during morning tea and once again met with delegates and won more hearts. Thank you for arranging this special visit. Quentin is a wonderful gentleman with so many natural qualities."

>> Take 5

"After catching a glimpse of Take 5 playing at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2004, I knew the long search for the 'right' band for our conference was over. The voices of Mike and Steve Foenander are brilliant; it is rare to find such talent. The infectious, smooth sounds of the bass, keyboards, and drums had even the most introverted delegate willing to dance! Both young and old were swirling on the dance-floor, and howls of protest were heard at the end of the night when the band finally had to pack up and go."
Jesia Berry - Australasian Epidemiological Association

>> Terry Hawkins

“We were blown away by Terry! One minute we were rolling in the aisles with laughter – the next we were touched by the sheer life experiences and perception used to convey the message. And what a message! A room full of nodding heads – hundreds of ‘ah ha’ moments; the feedback was all the same, ‘bring Terry back next year’. If you’re looking for more that just a motivational speaker – you’ve found her. Thank you Terry for helping us turn our conference from fabulous to AMAZING!”
Robyn Keegan, Communications and Customer Relations Manager
UnderCoverWear


“Wow! What can I say? Terry Hawkins is absolutely fantastic! This woman is the most amazing and inspiring speaker I have ever listened to. Her presentation, delivery and energy are second to none.

Her message is so powerful and yet so simple. Thank you so much for recommending her.”
Rex Ward, CEO

>> The Bongo Brothers

“They’re the Wiggles for funky parents. After nearly a decade dazzling kids and parents with their infectious grooves, the Bongo Brothers have created a tight, hysterical piece of musical comedy and wild percussion that doesn’t lag for a second. With an emphasis on fun and interaction, these talented musicians and high-energy performers will have your kids jumping out of their seats - and you’ll find yourself on your feet next to them.”
The Age

>> The Crooked Fiddle Band

“The Crooked Fiddle Band are completely surprising: the music is original and quixotic, and yet has the strength of some deep and strong roots. I can't say I've ever heard anything else like it!”
Brian Eno

“This band really is a national treasure and testament to the infinite talent that keeps manifesting in our backyard... this group have re-invented folk music as it is known... The Crooked Fiddle Band charmed the audience into submission.”
Vanessa Lahey, Australian Stage

“...a short fast slab of hardcore gypsy passion... a fiery blend of various violin traditions with punk intensity and the raw finesse of crazed street virtuosos.”
Bradfield Dumpleton

“...I’m taken by how effortlessly it appears that they are masters and mistresses of the mood, playing with and for dancers as if we are flexible puppets – willing eager recipients of the ebbs and flows… They are so totally in charge of the audience in the most generous way...”
Severin, Cuturazi.com

“So this is what Sepultura sound like in a parallel universe where they're a travelling gypsy band. It's the soundtrack to a hyperactive version of ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ Awesome!”
Dom Alessio, Triple J Home & Hosed

“Wild mash up of styles. Jess is giving the violin a solid workout. Which is a good thing. It deserves a flogging at times that bloody instrument. And a bouzouki in the line up! I'll be there at your next show if you shout the ouzo.”
Richard Kingsmill, Triple J Radio
 

>> The Idea of North

"A cappella is sometimes thought of as being minimalist, but when you can sing and entertain like The Idea of North a band would just get in the way - such musicianship!"
James Morrison

"You haven't truly experienced music until you've heard Stayin' Alive done a cappella. The way this quartet tackled it, complete with in-sync disco dance moves, showed just why they are so highly regarded around the world."
Lauren McMenemy The Advertiser

"In terms of quality of ensemble and elegance of arrangements, this group's work is in the same league as that of The Swingle Singers in their heyday. On top of that, they incorporate a wry, deadpan Australian sense of humour that made their performance immensely entertaining."
David M. Schwartz, Sydney Cabaret Convention

"The Idea of North a four member a cappella group, were measured and absorbing. Like ABBA dipped in velvet, Trish Delaney Brown, Naomi Crellin, Nick Begbie, and Andrew Piper, were witty, in tune and certain contenders for an award."
Lenny Anne Low - Sydney Morning Herald 30 May 2003

>> The Satellites

"The Satellites, truly went off big time. Playing good time 50's Rockabilly, they had the look, the songs, the twangy vocal accents and above all the energy to make it all very convincing and leaving the crowd literally hungry for more. Brilliant!"
dB magazine: Big Day Out Review, Issue #2437- 20/2/01

 

>> The Soubrettes

‘Two young women dressed like 19th Century prostitutes… sing in sickly sweet voices something akin to a Grease soundtrack or an all-girl teen band. The incongruity of their girly voices with biting lyrics is hilarious’
The Age

‘The present darlings of Melbourne’s cabaret circuit’
Melbourne Herald Sun

‘The Soubrettes are not only great comics but also wonderfully talented singers’
Adelaide Advertiser

>> The Three Chillies

“Thanks guys for Friday night! The meals were amazing and the entertainment phenomenal. We definitely will be coming back.”

“Performing to a sellout crowd at the Queens Arms Hotel in Wright Street, in the heart of the city, these three ‘chillies’ are just electrifying. The hotel was a pleasant surprise having undergone some renovations to create a great venue for a show of this kind.”
Adelaide Fringe

“The Three Chillies are Oriana Binetti, Kelly O’Brien and Rose Senesi. In a flashy one-hour show, they strut their stuff together and individually in front of a seven-piece jazz band (Twisted J), working their way through many a well known Motown tune (and some lesser known numbers), accompanied by some tightly scripted banter to tie it all together.”
The Queens Arms

 

>> Tim 'Rosso' Ross

"Last night was fabulous. Tim is the most amazing MC, so easy to work with and really figured out the crowd early. He definitely mentioned all the points we needed and everyone really enjoyed his comedy. Please pass on our thanks again to him – he really made the night flow wonderfully!”

>> Tim Jarvis

“Tim was the perfect opening speaker to our workshop.  He inspired our group with his personal Polar projects and experiences, showing them that big ideas can be made into reality.  His key message stayed with the participants throughout the workshop, enabling them to channel the “thinking is good, doing is better” philosophy into innovative thinking in sustainability.” 
Dermot O’Gorman, CEO WWF-Australia, June 2012

“Tim Jarvis was the guest speaker at the RANZCO Eye Foundation’s 10th Anniversary Dinner.  Tim’s inspirational tales of his polar expeditions had the audience mesmerised – there were 240 guests and you could have heard a pin drop. We also really appreciated Tim providing his time in support of eye health and donating an auction prize, which achieved the highest bid on the night.” 
Jacinta Spurrett, CEO, RANZCO Eye Foundation, June 2012

“Tim Jarvis held a full house audience of 170 adults and children spellbound at the Royal Geographical Society’s Singapore branch with a riveting account of his polar expeditions, how the lessons learned from these experiences can be applied to everyday life, and his work as an environmental scientist with the consulting engineering firm Arup. Ranging from his plans to re-enact Shackleton’s epic rescue mission across the Southern Ocean in a small boat in 1916, through practical tips on how to scare off an inquisitive polar bear, to his personal life philosophy,Tim’s talk was eye-opening, fascinating and inspiring for everyone in the room.”  
Pete Read, Treasurer, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Singapore branch, June 2012

“Tim did a fabulous job of motivating over 100 Ernst & Young Partners and Staff, with a vivid and passionate account of his Shackleton expedition. Tim eloquently told his story, and was able to draw clear and relevant linkages between his harrowing exploration and the business world. His presentation was relevant, engaging and very memorable for all who were fortunate enough to be there. We will be looking for opportunities to work with Tim again in the future and we wish him every success with his next venture. A truly inspiring story which our team will not easily forget. Thanks again!” 
Stephen Koss, Partner – Ernst & Young, May 2013

“Minchin…the insanely gifted Australian is rounding off the year with an audacious show that sees him accompanied on stage by the 55-piece Heritage Orchestra…Taken all in all, a thing of jaw-dropping wonder.”
Daily Telegraph, London
 
“Tim Minchin comes on and the crowd explodes… the kohl-eyed, back-combed, piano-playing Minchin… lives up to the hype. A slight, barefoot figure, he is a consummate pianist as well as an excellent comedian.”
Daily Telegraph, London
 
“If there’s an artist more naturally disposed to a hybrid of pop and orchestration, I do not know his name."
The Age, Melbourne
 
“Minchin gave full rein to his musical genius, launching satirical songs like hand grenades into the crowd’s sensibilities."
The Sunday Mail, Adelaide
 
“Don’t be conned by the use of “vs” in the advertising. Minchin and his orchestras work magnificently together for 2.5 hours.”
The Australian
 
“All up, Ready For This? is one of the most entertaining 2 hours of comedy you could experience. It’s a night of constant laughter, entertainment and deep thinking peppered with witty lyrics and first class musical prowess. An absolute must…”
Daily Telegraph, Sydney
 
“Tim Minchin is a genius, pure and simple. He is to musical comedy what Charles Darwin was to evolution and what Einstein was to physics and moustaches. You’d be hard pushed to find a more sublimely talented comedian. Handsome, hysterical and divinely musically gifted – you can go off people, you know!”
Tim Arthur, Time Out
 
“One of the funniest and most amazing shows you will ever see.”
Daily Telegraph, Sydney
 
“Simultaneously an excellent stand-up comedian, a purveyor of physical comedy, an accomplished musician and a lyricist of diabolical ingenuity. Witty, smart, and unabashedly offensive.”
The Age, Melbourne
 
“Minchin is a genuine musical virtuoso, whose songs are constructed and sung with an attention to detail that would make Rufus Wainwright sit up and look nervous. And that’s even before we get to the jokes.”
The Times, London
 
“Articulate, thoughtful, dry and unashamedly polysyllabic… dark irreverent and talented… excellent, provoking, funny.”
The Age, Melbourne
 
“Take out a second mortgage, sell the car, and put the money on the safest bet you’ll ever make in this uncertain world: that Tim Minchin will be the next big thing in musical comedy."
Time Out, London
 
“He plays like an angel, sings like the rock star he always wanted to be and has a devil of a sense of humour. This is an extraordinary performer.”
The Scotsman, Edinburgh

>> Tom Gleeson

"Triplescore were a big hit and proved to be flexible on the night! After the debate ran over time, Triplescore were happy to get onstage and play through for one big set (instead of their two smaller scheduled sets) to make sure the crowd got up to party. They even got an Adelaide personality up on stage to sing a song with the band which got the crowd cheering."
Sam Cocks - Urbantech Finance CEO (Book Smarts vs Street Smarts Debate)

"Triplescore was the perfect ‘warm up’ act for the Tour Down Under concert at Mawson Lakes featuring Guy Sebastian.
