You’re warmly invited to our June Chapter event where we will be learning the keys to telling great stories to help you stand out as a speaker in a special Masterclass with Zara and Troy.

Speaking Masterclass with Zara and Troy

Zara and Troy are the dynamic duo behind Great Talk and Humour Australia and they believe that storytelling is the 8th wonder of the world!

Knowing how to tell your story without boring your audience to tears, or even worse, leaving them wondering what the point of your presentation was, is sometimes easier said than done.  They love to help speakers like you discover how to lighten up and reframe stories that create an emotional connection and turn them into stories that move people to act.

Having hosted for live audiences from twenty to twenty-thousand, and with over 10,000 appearances on stage, radio and screen, they have received glowing accolades from companies like Microsoft, Optus, AMP, ANZ, Cadbury, the REIV and many more...

They’ve learnt a thing or two about communicating with impact and will share their insightful strategies and story-crafting formulas for engaging any audience, every time!

They’ve shared the stage and microphone with the likes of Sir Richard Branson, The Black Eyed Peas, Heath Ledger, Destiny’s Child and Chris Rock to name just a few.

For the Masterclass, they will cover the following three areas:

  1. Fascinating three step story-crafting process
  2. The two questions that every great speaker must be able to answer to influence every audience…and…
  3. ONE magical idea to transform every talk into a GREAT TALK!

This will be a dynamic and interactive workshop and one you’ll remember for life!  Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to see the dynamic duo in action.
