Following on from the outstanding success of our 2012 National Speaker Showcase series, Ovations International has announced their first showcase date for 2013. This highly anticipated event will showcase some of Australia's finest speakers and entertainers.
Founder and CEO of Ovations International, Leanne Christie said "our speaker showcases allow us to present the exceptional quality and fresh new trends in the professional speaking world. Our clients really enjoy being able to discover new ideas and experience speakers in action before booking them. Event organisers have enough stress on the day of an event without the added pressure of an unknown speaker.
We're very pleased to once again be partnering with the Merivale group at the Ivy in George St, Sydney for this event. Merivale will showcase their best venue space, and "a fabulous full hot breakfast" to invited clients and guests.
Ovations first National Speaker Showcase for 2013 will take place in Sydney on Tuesday, 19th February in the stunning Ivy Ballroom from 7.30am – 10.00am

W. Mitchell is a speaker we have featured several times in O News over the years and is a speaker we hold close to our heart.
Our Chief of Everything O, Leanne Christie, recently booked W. Mitchell for a small private function for staff, family and friends of Ovations to hear his message personally.
Keith Harwood, our Chief of Client Experiences, describes the evening:
Tim Gard has been in Australia this past month, secured by Ovations for local clients. He also stopped by the office to keep us updated on his latest presentations and topics in person.
It wasn't just incredible product knowledge for the team to secure, or an invaluable resource to draw upon when trying to find exactly the right speaker for an event. It was a rare treat to watch him in action as he presented segments from "Developing a Comic Vision" and "The Tao of Humor" ably assisted by his plethora of custom-made props.
Absolutely hilarious, Tim always brings tears to the eye with so much laughter and fun!
When The Growth Faculty approached Ovations to secure an MC for an upcoming session with Sir Martin Sorrell, we knew immediately who was the most obvious choice: Legendary Australian marketer and The Gruen Transfer regular, Dan Gregory.
Sir Martin is the CEO of WPP, originally a manufacturer of shopping baskets and now one of the world's largest communication services group. Speaking on The Importance of Digital and Emerging Markets, who better to understand Sir Martin's world than Dan Gregory? Further, Dan's firm The Impossible Institute is one of the few advertising agencies in Australia not owned by Sir Martin, allowing the choice of MC to bring an impartial perspective to the event.
Andrew Roe, Director of Golden Key International Honour Society won tickets to the event in last month's Special Promotions and had this to say about the breakfast event:
Thanks for the invitation to the event this morning. It was great to listen to Sir Martin Sorrell, I thought his perspective was fantastic, very international and relevant to anyone, not just advertisers!"
On the 25th Birthday of Ovations we announced that big changes were afoot, starting with the introduction of our O Exclusives model. We've since overturned every aspect of our brand, marketing and service, all led by a very special consulting group: our very own clients!
To all of you my deepest gratitude. Not only for your loyalty and support for so many years but for caring enough to let us know how we can serve you best. In phase one of our new "The Client is our Hero" programme, we have incorporated the top 25 hot ideas that you had asked for in our brand new website. There are another eight ideas to be released before the end of the year.
These changes are all about you: a new quick and easy search, more speaker videos prominently featured on the site, a quick contact option available on every page of the site and our personal favourite: "O Help Me!". We're also now available to chat 24/7 with our on-site Live Chat (Even our toughest Board of Clients didn't think we could do that!)
Welcome to the NEW Ovations, please look around and see for yourself.
