from over 100 years of Professional Speaking

Between them Ian Berry, Helen Macdonald, Winston Marsh, Ricky Nowak and Paddy Spruce have been speaking for over 100 years.

On this night they’ll be sharing their best kept and most practical secrets on their journey from stage to sage. You’ll be in small groups for maximum, interaction coz they won’t be just talking at you but rather with you so that you can get your tough questions answered. Most importantly, it’s a “no fluff” session when you won’t just get their shtick but you’ll get the practical, down-to-earth, simple ideas that really work.

You’ll leave this chapter meeting with wisdom that will mean:

  1. Being a better marketer of what you do that a doer of what you do
  2. Leveraging a few relationships who will lead you to more speaking work that you could shake a stick at
  3. Be a master of influence people flock to
  4. Nailing down the best business structure for you
  5. Being a specialist in constant demand from the right people for you

Join us for an unforgettable event starting with conversation over dinner.

About your hosts

Ian Berry, CSP has been speaking professionally since 1991.

Ian is the master of providing the maximum number of presentations for a minimum number of clients. He will share how to achieve optimum results through leveraging less than a dozen relationships, and how such relationships are a key to longevity.

Helen Mac, CSP, Past National President & Nevin Award winner, gave her first presentation at the age of 16, in exchange for a chicken dinner. Since then, she has taken her topic & her business structure through numerous iterations & can help you to do the same.

Winston Marsh CSP abandoned a real job to embark on a speaking career 30 years ago when he and wife, Lauris, had a mortgage, four big eating kids in private schools, no bookings and no income. Anybody can do what he did to keep them in food, clothing and shelter.

Ricky Nowak CSP works with  top performing individuals and teams within Australasia’s most progressive organisations helping them optimise their performance and improve results for themselves and their teams.

She will disclose how to go from a generalist to a specialist and be the best you can be for yourself and your clients.

Paddy Spruce, CSP is a genuine expert in The Art of Influence. This includes the ability to convince, persuade  or inspire an audience of any size.

Want all your presentations to be dynamic, memorable and enjoyable for you and your audiences? Paddy will show you how.

In the Pre-session we will continue the amazing speaker masterclass under the guidance of Kerrie Mullins-Gunst and a guest CSP. We’ll listen to and explore a member’s presentation and then hear some incredible simple and effective tips from the experts on how to supercharge it for impact and effectiveness.

Whether you’re the presenter or sitting in the audience just listening, you’ll get a tonne of takeaways to help you build a better presentation. Have you got 8 minutes of material that you need to practise, get feedback on or to just get right? Then you need this session.  Each month two speakers get to trot out their stuff and get feedback from senior speakers and the audience. 

Members can apply for a spot here   

"It is a fantastic opportunity to get feedback on how you come across as a presenter" - Dr. Rachel Abramson, Ph.D.
