Well, not all by itself, but it sure accelerated the time it took for acceptance in the global world of real space missions. Two years ago I was not even working in Aerospace and had no credentials. What I did have was the capacity to make change within myself to get on top of aerospace and an ability to make the web work for me.
Heck! Australia is not even a player in space missions these days so it was multimedia to the rescue.
When booking a speaker, you want to know that they can do more than talk the talk. If you didn't already know that Liesl Capper is one of Australia's most respected tech pioneers, then this year's Top 50 in Technology list in The Australian should leave you in no doubt.
If you've never had the opportunity to attend one of our fabulous breakfast showcases, here's your chance to experience just a little of the incredible atmosphere that is the hallmark of an Ovations Speaker Showcase. Watch Craig Reucassel, Kamal Sarma, Paul Wallbank and Narelle Hooper strut their stuff on stage, demonstrating the business savvy and vision that helps our clients succeed!
Now we’re in the second decade of the Twenty-First Century, business is accelerating as a combination of changes in technology and society come together.
Some of these changes are global, such as the continued rise of China and the Western world’s aging. Others affect us on a personal level. All of them will have a big impact on our businesses and the way we work.
Many of these trends have been predicted for some time. It’s the availability of the cheap (almost free!) computing power that’s delivering many of the promises made by technology over the last thirty years. These are worth examining more closely.

First a quick quizz.
- Q:1 Are you expected to devote extraordinary amounts of time to your work?
- Q:2 Do you seem to spend more time with your work colleagues than anyone else?
- Q:3 Has work taken over your life?
Actually I borrowed these questions from reFocus.org, a web site dedicated to helping former cultists recover.
Has work become the new cult?
I would like to say that I cannot think of any other agent / contractor that I have worked with who has kept me in the loop the way you have. I would like to say, once again, thank you.
Helpful, quick response time, flexible and full of alternative suggestions.
We hold a number of functions every year and are always in need of entertainment and MCs. I must say it has been a pleasure working with Ovations thus far as they have been a tremendous help, always offering a number of alternatives at a great rate. I look forward to working with them again soon in the future.
The Consultants at Ovations were both efficient and helpful in our experience and I would have no hesitation recommending the company to anyone looking to source and book appropriate entertainment. Thanks again!
From the telephone inquiry, through to an in-depth meeting with Leanne, every attempt was made to ensure that our brief was well understood and that the trainer presenters would be the most effective people to assist us in meeting our objectives.
