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.

Finance presenter on the National 9 network.

After gaining a TER of 97.5% at school, Amber embarked upon a Bachelor of Arts (Communications) degree at UTS in Sydney, majoring in Journalism. 

After graduation, Amber entered the world of television in 1997 with Channel 7 presenting, researching and producing stories on things to do in and around Sydney. Further experience was gained in front of the cameras with Channel 10 and the Commonwealth Bank over the next four years where she produced and anchored a daily news bulletin for CBA-TV, the Commonwealth Bank’s financial news service. Anchoring a weekly discussion panel with industry experts, writing and producing financial news stories rounded off an excellent apprenticeship.  

In 2002, Europe called and Amber moved to London where she worked as an in-house journalist for ABN AMRO Mellon in London for their London, Amsterdam and Boston offices, generating and writing stories for the international financial press. 

Returning to Sydney in 2004, Amber once again joined the 10 Network where she was the host and supervising producer for the studio based “State Focus” program, a current affairs / light entertainment programme for Southern Cross Ten. Her experience in current affairs, politics, finance, sport, entertainment as a news anchor was broadening. 

But it was her love of the financial world that caused Amber to return to Commsec in 2006 as their finance analyst / presenter providing business and finance reports for Channel 10, Channel 9, Sky News, 2UE & ABC on a daily basis. Responsibility for writing, researching and presenting market updates was entirely hers. Wanting to further increase her expertise in financial journalism, Amber returned to UTS in Sydney and commenced her Masters in Journalism course which she is still in the process of completing.  

Sky News then beckoned a year later where her skills as a finance reporter were engaged on a range of business shows including ‘Sky Business Report’, ‘First Business’, ‘Trading Day’ and ‘Market Day’. 

In July of 2007, Amber joined the team at the Nine Network to present the business segments for the TODAY Show and the 11AM and the 4.30pm News bulletins.  

Regular Qantas travellers will also recognise Amber in the lounges and on board their aircraft where she also presents the morning Qantas in-flight news service. 

As a freelance presenter / producer, Amber has worked for television and radio including: 

·       Feature specials for BBC, London
·       News producing for Channel 10 morning news, First at Five and Late Night News
·       Corporate videos for clients including Belle Magazines & Commonwealth Bank
·       Voice-over work for clients including Canberra Centre & AFP
