Improve Your Story Telling and Presentation Skills

Max Walker

We have secured a HUGE 'yes' from a Tasmanian legend...

Max Walker...

... has, for decades, been regarded as a world class professional speaker. He has witnessed the massive changes in the professional speaking industry and kept ahead of the game. Max has immersed himself in the technological know-how and social media and has built his own company around the opportunities new media brings into our world.

What to expect

  • Learn more about speaking from the heart not the head…what do you feel strongly about?
  • How to recognise sticky stories
  • How to capture and finesse a compelling story
  • Discover the architecture of memorable presentations
  • How to leverage message, brand and technology
  • Learn how to own the stage

Max has extensive experience as a communicator. He crafts his presentations with his creative architectural skills and at this session, you will be shown a presentation by Max and taken into how he created it. A master story teller, Max is aware that this session has been planned and designed to help you improve your speaking and presenting skills.

Bernadette BlackOn top of being a mum of three and wife of Steve in their home in Blackman’s Bay.

What a treat to have Bernie speak at our special Chapter event.

Bernadette will take her audience through the inspiration of her story AND show us all how she makes her keynotes so inspirational.

Here’s what Bernadette has said about her upcoming presentation…

I will make reference to 'tell me and I’ll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and l’ll understand'…emphasising that where we work as professional speakers is in the 'involve me' space.

There will be scope too for one brave (there’s that word again) attendee to get up on their feet and have a go sharing a segment of their story. In turn, you will then get to learn from Bernadette how to shape that piece for maximum impact and implant in the hearts of their audience.

This is a session not to be missed.
