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.

Born and educated in England, Paul Barry studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University graduating in 1973 with 1st Class Honours. He has now lived in Australia since 1987 and has become one of this country’s most respected journalists.

Prior to emigrating to Australia Paul was a journalist with the BBC for ten years before his arrival in Sydney to work for the ABC’s “Four Corners” program where one of his initial hardest hitting reports was on multi millionaire Alan Bond. This and a multitude of other investigative stories won him nearly every major TV award. He
specialised in reports on economic matters, government departmental failures and particularly corporate governance.

Although Paul continued in television hosting the ABC’s “Media Watch” and Channel 7’s “Witness”, plus reporting roles with Nine’s “A Current Affair” and “60 Minutes” plus a stint presenting breakfast on Radio National, it was to his original love of journalism that he turned when he wrote his first best seller “The Rise & Fall of Alan Bond”.

Described by one reviewer as “essential reading for anyone with even a passing interest in business and its morality during the turbulent 1980’s”, this book became the all time top selling biography of the 1990’s.
 His interest and intrigue with the business life of Australia’s billionaires led Paul to release his second book “The Rise & Rise of Kerry Packer”.

The tome was short listed for the Banjo Awards in 1994 with the judges commenting that “… it combines the highest standards of investigative journalism with admirable professional balance and a refusal to be intimidated by perceptions of power”.
 A third book was once again back on the topic of Alan Bond.

“Going for Broke”
is the story of how Alan Bond hid his fortune and in 2001 he won the highly prestigious Walkley Award for an expose on tax dodging barristers. In April 2004, Paul wrote “Rich Kids” which revealed how the Packers and the Murdochs lost more than $950 million in the debacle of One-Tel.
 

His latest book, published in August of 2006 is the unauthorised biography of Shane Warne titled “Spun Out”.
