Who we are

Bringing audiences to their feet!

Ovations, founded in 1988 by Leanne Christie, was the first training brokerage company in Australia. The business rapidly moved into Motivational Speakers, Inspirational Speakers and Keynote Speakers specialising in conferences and corporate events.

As one of the most respected and established Speakers Bureaus in Australia, Ovations lead the way with Australia's first Speakers Showcase. Leanne and the Ovations team have now organised events in over 20 countries.

Our Managing Director has served on the board of the International Association of Speakers Bureaus. Ovations has also been awarded the annual IASB (International Association of Speakers Bureau's) top award for service. The first time the award has been won by a person or bureau outside the US.

The team at Ovations is truly the most professional and reliable to work with and have a well-established and proven track record.

We look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

A massive thank you to you both for all your assistance from selecting to co-ordinating the speakers for our annual ProLoan conference. Feedback was that this year’s speakers where the best they had EVER heard at ANY event. So this is pretty amazing, because they do go to a lot of sessions like these.

Again this year you and your team have been fantastic and extremely helpful.  In regards to you, you have been an absolute star and phenomenal help with our speakers and presenters, a great communicator, wealth of knowledge and so prompt with responding and looking at ways to cater to our needs.

I would recommend, without hesitation, the services of Jane Rowland Smith and Ovations. Jane answered a last minute call to arrange a guest speaker for our principals. Nothing was too much effort, all was arranged within hours, and went very smoothly. The guest speaker was exactly what we required and our brief was followed. Thank you Jane and the team at Ovations.

All aspects of the process has always gone seamlessly with Ovations and we will continue to seek your assistance for the awards in the coming years.

Thank you again, your help has meant that our Awards are very professional and extremely well received by our members and guests.

Jane, I personally want to thank you for all of your support, advice, patience and all round kindness that you have given me over the last 3 or so years.  This event would not have been as successful without the valuable MC’s you have recommended and the support you provided me when it all just seemed too hard
