Speakers Australia and its principal Peter Physick have provided the most convenient and professional service we have encountered.

In over 25 years of our Institute providing members with current, thought provoking and topical issue speakers for our conferences and forums, we have come to rely on the outstanding judgement of Peter and Speakers Australia.

Whether it be entertainers for a broad audience or the most challenging conference topic, Speakers Australia has never failed to deliver. We at the AMInstitute are faced with the dilemma of providing our delegates at conferences with new and exciting presenters year after year and as many of our delegates attend each year, we need presenters and entertainers with new and fresh material.

This challenge has been made obsolete by Speakers Australia as they have taken the time to know our business, our target audience and our history………

The service we received from Speakers Australia has been exemplary from the beginning. Peter Physick and his team worked very hard to ensure that Keith Scott was available to MC our event under what could be described as challenging logistical circumstances given the time constraints we were faced with.

We would highly recommend Peter and his company Speakers Australia.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Peter Physick at Speakers Australia since the year 2000 and have never been let down by his recommendations. I tell Peter the type of speaker or act that we require and he supplies a number of names and CV's of the speakers or acts which fit our requirements. It is as simple as that.

Peter’s professional attitude and friendly manner makes it an absolute pleasure to deal with him. I can not recommend him highly enough to any one or to an organisation which needs help in arranging, organising or advising on the best fit for their special event.

Phil Kearns .... without a doubt, one of Rugby’s most famous and respected sons.

Phil’s comeback to the Wallaby side after an 18 month battle to overcome Achilles and knee injuries has been proclaimed as a symbol of his determination and quality as an enduring athlete. 

Australia’s most capped hooker, Phil is acknowledged by many rugby commentators as having been the world’s best rugby hooker.  Phil played 67 test matches for Australia after making his test debut in 1989.  He also played in the ‘Rest of the World’ side against the All Blacks for the New Zealand Rugby Centenary celebrations.   

Phil’s great ability as a player coupled with his leadership skills,  both on and off the field, was recognised through his appointment as captain of the Wallabies on ten occasions throughout his career.  A tenacious competitor, Phil epitomised the new breed of Australian sportsmen displaying remarkable talent, ability and determination. 

Despite setting himself exceptionally high standards in all of his pursuits, Phil remained throughout his playing career,  the consummate team member.  His candid wit and outgoing personality made him popular with team mates, supporters, media and even opponents.  This popularity has continued through his media and other charitable commitments.

Phil capped off his rugby career by playing an important part in the Wallabies World Cup win in 1999, the third world cup campaign for Phil. 

Since retirement, Phil’s career has remained hectic with his work as
Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand  with  a major IT company together with his many commitments to the media (Fox Sports and Channel Nine) as well as his numerous charities.  And, of course, with four young kids, Phil and his wife Julie have never been busier!! 

Phil was educated at Newington College and the University of New South Wales where he received his degree in Economics and Economic History.  

Based on a combination of his sporting achievements, personal qualities and his articulate presentation skills, Phil is a highly sought after public speaker and spokesperson for any company or product.
