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.

"Animo" ...

Hugh Gyton's true purpose is to get people comfortable in, and consciously managing conversations that matter: building trust: and ultimately experiencing more out of life. Core to his philospophy is that "people buy people first .... not companies or products". After all, selling is "Just a conversation" and business performance is literally defined by the conversations we have.

Hugh has been involved in conversations that matter for over 25 years in diverse cultural backgrounds around the globe for products and services that have had a price range from $2,000 to over $30million. His success in the field is built on the premise that we are all selling all the time - whether it is:

  • our ideas
  • our product or service
  • how we want our children to behave, or
  • our own choices as to how we live our lives.

Core to his philosophy is that “people buy people first, not companies or products” after all..... ‘Selling is Just a conversation™.

Hugh’s professional conversations started in London in the computer software industry. During more than a decade with his first company, he rose to senior levels, including General Manager, Comshare Australia. On being headhunted into Hong Kong he broadened his understanding of the importance of relationship over ‘sales technique’ honing a more engaged, collaborative approach to leverage the cultural differences now faced. Over a two year period for Symix Inc. his conversations managed seven countries and he opened offices in mainland China, managed double-byte enablement of the product, recruited and managed resellers in multiple countries and increased revenue by more than 300%.

On leaving Hong Kong he backpacked for a year around Asia, Africa, and Europe and developed his US$10 a day survival conversations. On returning to Sydney, he eased himself back into the working routine for a couple of years in his own company brokering distribution deals between international software companies. It was not long before a client snaffled him up and he was back in the IT industry doing what he did best.

The following years saw him in senior positions for well known companies; Educom, KAZ Computers and EMC. Intent on having at least his third ‘mid-life crisis,’ Hugh turned his back on PAYE once and for all and followed his passion - helping individuals and teams achieve their potential. First, as a Licencee with Leadership Management Australia, honing his coaching, facilitation, and behavioural change skills for nearly five years before setting up his own company – Just a conversation™.

Hugh is a thought leader in getting people comfortable in controlling conversations that matter, building trust, and ultimately experiencing more out of life. During this period he has coached and assisted hundreds of individuals across a wide-range of industries for both large and small companies. Success is Just a conversation™.

Whether it is with our children, business colleagues, clients, friends, or even ourselves - the conversations we choose to have are fundamental to our success in life. Just a conversation™ is in the business of changing people's attitudes and behaviours to the conversations they choose to have in order to improve performance .... in sales, leadership, or the relationships (both personal and commercial) that we enjoy.

Keynote Topics

Selling is.....Just a conversation

Have you ever noticed some people just seem to be in the right place at the right time. They get the cool job, the next promotion, the gorgeous girl, or the handsome guy, the free tickets, the party invites... need I go on? When you look at them they are not necessarily better at their job, nor are they necessarily prettier or more handsome than you. And they are rarely a “better” person, yet opportunities and people seem to evolve around them. So, just what is it that they do they do differently?

This keynote will get you to ‘look in the mirror’ and ask yourself how your own thinking is holding you back.
