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.

Client List

Australia's premier ventriloquist

With a diverse range of characters, an almost endless supply of comedy material and some knowledge of your company or groups personnel, Darren can personalise his performance to ensure a unique and laugh-filled presentation.

Darren got his first taste of ventriloquism at the tender age of eight when he saw Australian ventriloquist Chris Kirby on television. With music taking over as his main passion soon after, his interest in “playing with dolls and talking to himself” didn’t re-emerge until he visited the 1993 ‘conVENTion’ in Kentucky where he found that being a ventriloquist was a lot more fun than being a musician.

From these early beginnings, Darren has gone on to become Australia's Premier Ventriloquist, performing both here and abroad to wide acclaim with
his "One man and a cast of several" show. Over the past ten years, Darren has enthralled audiences of all ages worldwide at numerous corporate functions, special events, nightclubs, cruise ships and theatres.

His performance can introduce up to six different characters including a disruptive koala, Darren’s look-a-like “Darrell” and an audience member who is transformed into an inebriated Scotsman complete with bagpipes.

He has also created and presented specialised programs for such varied clients as: Tooheys, Wild Turkey, Westfield, Westpac Careflight, Lend Lease, Aristocrat, Darling Harbour, Cancer Council, AFL, Breville, Tattersalls, Starlight Foundation, Campbell's Food Stores, Tandy Electronics, Mazda, Ferraro Foods, Adbrook, Dominelli Ford and Dick Smith to name but a few.

Darren has also accepted numerous invitations to appear as a headline act at the International Ventriloquist conventions held in the USA where he has achieved hearty adulation from his peers.

He made history when as a 2005 ACE award winner in three separate categories: Best Sight Act, Best Comedy Act and the Outstanding Performer of the Year. He is the first performer to win in three categories. Blending comedy, music and ventriloquism makes for a unique act in which Darren has found his true calling.



Darren had over 200 people fully involved and the feedback from everyone was outstanding."
Stephen Friend - National Manager - The Distributors 

"Darren proved the perfect MC for our function. His material was very well received and using his alter - ego dummy to help present the awards gave it a light hearted touch while keeping everything on track… Excellent!"
Neil Stanners - Status Ad Group 

"I have been fortunate to work with many entertainers, but I have never received the acclaim that poured in following your performance. I want to thank you profusely, for your professionalism."
Gene McCarthy - International Entertainment 

"I have worked with a lot of talent over the years and Darren is by far the best I have seen".
Joanne Marshall – Toyota Sci-Fleet 

"Darren is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. You sure we don’t owe you extra for all the fun?"

Susan Miller – Dick Smith Electronics

"The staff have been buzzing about Darren Carr at the Christmas Party all week …"
Nellie Hage / Invocare 

"Surprisingly good act, with audience participation that had the whole room in stitches."
