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.
David Carter / AgriPlex Group Pty Ltd

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.

Testimonials
'Wonderful, hilarious and ‘unmissable’ - living proof that audacity and irreverent effervescence are life skills' – The Scotsman

Ever since singing Holding Out For A Hero on New Faces at the age of seventeen and tying first place with a girls’ marching band, Julia Morris knew she was going to make it big.


Several years of honing her stand-up and variety skills followed, both as an entertainer in Club Med resorts and as resident MC at the Sydney Comedy Store. Then Julia got her big television break in 1995 on
Logie award-winning comedy sketch show Full Frontal.

Quickly becoming a household name, roles followed for Julia on many popular nineties shows including In Melbourne Tonight, Beauty and the Beast, Great Aussie Bloopers, Gladiators, The Midday Show, Who Dares Wins, and Good Morning Australia. During this time, Julia was also part of TTFM’s Melbourne breakfast radio team.

 

In 2000, Australia’s favourite funny lady left our shores to show the UK how it’s done. Eight years later, Julia has achieved both commercial and critical success in the UK on stage, radio and television. Her refreshing honesty captured the imagination of British comedy’s elite and whilst in the UK Julia got to work with and warm up the likes of Paul Whitehouse, Stephen Fry, Catherine Tate, Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, Graham Norton and her own personal Dalai Llama – the great Dame Edna.

 

Whilst abroad, Julia hosted TV shows for the BBC, appeared in nearly every major international Festival from South Africa to Montreal, won the prestigious Herald Angel award at the Edinburgh Festival 2002 and was named Time Out magazine’s ‘Comedy Performer of the Year’ in 2004. What was left?  Maybe it was time to bag herself a husband, the title of ‘Lady’ (bought on the internet by her husband Dan), a baby daughter, and bring her new family back to settle in her beloved homeland.

 

The Aussie public welcomed their prodigal daughter with open arms. Since returning to Australia, ‘Lady’ Julia Morris simply hasn’t stopped. She has featured on every major commercial television channel, on shows including Good News Week, Sunrise and Thank God You're Here - and was series team captain on Foxtel’s Astra award-winning The Singing Office.

 

Julia and her opera superstar partner David Hobson not only won the third series of Channel 7’s hit show It Takes Two, but, with their interpretations of songs like Tina Turner’s We Don’t Need Another Hero and the Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen, also provided the nation with some of the most memorable TV moments of 2008.

 

Julia’s stand-up featured at the gala performances of both the 2008 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney’s Cracker Comedy Festival (she also competed on the winning team in the televised Great Debate at the former). Her stand-up shows in both festivals were complete sell-outs.

What’s next for Julia? Only time will tell. But one thing’s for sure – Australia simply can’t get enough of her.

Testimonials

“… when Julia Morris is in full verbal flow on a stage, it's as though Joan Rivers, Germaine Greer and Betty Boop are all living inside the same body. Phew, she's a scorcher.'
The Sydney Morning Herald 

“Breathless, glamorous, camp, snobby, self deprecating, gossipy, fast paced, surprisingly barbed yet subtle with a stream of energy and material that is a lot stronger than her brash-but-catty style might suggest… a delivery so relentless that you beg her to inhale, so rich with potential catchphrases you struggle to take them all in. It holds the audience who can’t afford to lose concentration for a split second for fear of losing something great.”
