Back to the Future with Tony Eades CSP - Brand Futurist

What will your speaking business look like in 2030? And how do you need to prepare?

Communication these days is instant and its interactive — whether you think you are B2B or B2C – today it’s all about B2H (Business To Human). How can you make your brand more engaging with prospects and customers?

In this session, Tony will give you a glimpse of what doing business in 2030 looks like and what you need to do now to leverage new technologies, use behavioural data to drive your sales and marketing funnel and how to future proof your business for the next 10 years.

Let’s jump into the DeLorean and go Back to the Future!

Creating a new keynote from a personal story with Dr Neryl East CSP

Have you ever received a phone call that changed everything?  In 2010, Neryl was told her partner, Michael McKeogh, had been critically injured in a dirt bike accident. As he fought back from near-fatal injuries, she was plunged into the world of the carer.

What followed was a journey of defying medical predictions, setting new goals and achieving an extraordinary result in a world sporting event.

Fast forward to 2019, and Mike and Neryl have crafted their story into a keynote entitled ‘Disrupt Your Life’.  In a special version of the keynote just for PSA, they’ll unpack how they took a traumatic experience and turned it into a compelling presentation.  Disrupt Your Life focuses on the tiny, seemingly insignificant choices we make every day that determine our actions and shape our future.

About Mike McKeogh and Dr Neryl East CSP

Mike’s life took a shocking turn in 2010 and his journey from trauma patient to international sporting medalist is proof of the potent combination of clear goals, deliberate choices and daily actions. 

As well as sharing Mike’s experience as his partner, Dr Neryl East CSP is a communication and credibility expert who shows current and future leaders how to be heard, stand out and command influence. She is a past Kerrie Nairn Scholarship recipient and immediate past President of PSA NSW/ACT.
