On behalf of your wonderful Chapter Leadership Team, a very festive hello to you! We have been busy in the background, conjuring up some magic to give you the most marvellous, festive, big bang end to 2017!

So, just for you - abracadabra, here it is (along with a fun-filled musical twist!)

The Best Speaking Tip Ever!
Amanda Gore

Fasten your seat belts, the legendary Amanda Gore is our special guest and her presentation is called The Best Speaking Tip Ever! The rest is a surprise - so make sure you don’t miss this invaluable opportunity. Amanda says she has distilled all her experience to date into this one concept (she can’t wait, and neither can we!)

About Amanda Gore

For more than 25 years, Amanda Gore has been one of America’s and Australia’s most admired experiential speakers.

She uses the principles of emotional intelligence to transform the spirit of people and cultures by changing perceptions, improving relationships, connecting people, managing change, leadership, innovation, and team dynamics.

Amanda believes success in business is always about feelings - the way we feel about a product, organization or person influences how we behave and informs our decisions about how we spend or who we conduct business with. Until we change our perceptions, we won’t change our behaviour.

Amanda’s presentations changes perceptions… And feelings. Author of five books and several video and audio training programs, Amanda is also the CEO of the JOY Project and has a bachelor's degree in physiotherapy, a major in psychology, and expertise in ergonomics, stress management, group dynamics, neurolinguistics, neuroscience, and occupational health.

Let the good times Rock and Roll! 
Dale Rees-Bevan

To help us end 2017 on a high note, the fabulous Dale Rees-Bevan will take us through a series of fabulous musical challenges, games, activities and trivia. 

Can you sing with spirit? Think of a song title with a colour in it? Finish the line: "We're living in a powder keg ...."   If you can, then you qualify for our Music Games Challenge and we'd love to see you get into our rhythm on 7th December.

Bond with your fellow Professional Speakers, as you attempt to tune in to all manner of musical mysteries and create memorable, magical moments of laughter! 

All you need to bring is your voice, a great sense of fun and a huge smile! Let's end the year on the highest note!

Phil Preston

We welcome our immediate past NSW President, Phil Preston, as MC for the evening, who is a leading global expert in creating social impact at scale.

Exactly ten years ago, Phil traded in his high-profile investment role to help businesses, charities and community organisations find exciting win-wins together. In 2013, his thought leadership work caught the eye of Harvard's legendary Professor Michael Porter and he has since worked with blue chip clients from all sectors. The PSA network has been integral to his transition from ad hoc consultant to the go to subject matter expert in his field.
