By Brad Hopes – Managing Consultant with ICMI Speakers & Entertainers

At the risk of annoying my friends on the other side of the Nullabor, I have to say we are currently the luckiest State in Australia. Lucky to have events on again and lucky to be able to say we have some of the best keynote speakers ON THE PLANET.

I was thinking about the impact of isolation on Australians and businesses all over the country and how the amazing motivational speakers ICMI has available can help. Their stories of overcoming obstacles and pivoting to achieve their ambitions will surely inspire businesses and their teams to do the same.

If you are having a conference or team meeting and yes, that includes ZOOM, and you have not checked out these people you really are missing something special.


Here are 5 stars:

Mick Colliss

Mick Colliss has proven himself to be the busiest speaker in Australia year after year and now, due to lockdown, he can finally concentrate on events in his home state. His tale of mateship, creative thinking and Sudoku will leave your audience breathless with laughter.

Mick had everyone in stitches. Such a funny true storyteller! Everyone from the company thoroughly enjoyed Micks recount. Superb!

Michelle Cowan

‘You can’t’ is not in Michelle Cowan‘s vocabulary, which is why she is Australia’s leading female AFL coach, the first female in Australia to coach men at a state level, inaugural senior coach of the Fremantle FC women’s football team and current Forwards coach of the West Coast Eagles AFLW. Michelle has gained respect and accolades from her speaking all over Australia and once again we count our lucky stars she is based here in Perth.

Michelle is an absolutely brilliant and genuine speaker. The entire room audience was engaged throughout and the feedback received from the guests was that they had never witnessed a more inspirational speaker.

Akram Azimi

From a child refugee in war-torn Afghanistan, to Young Australian of the Year, to attaining a triple major degree. All this in 13 years, what a story. Akram Azami speaks on a range of topics including social justice, ethics, education and reconciliation and his passion is like no other l have met. Akram is an outstanding speaker who he effortlessly connects with his audience leaving them truly inspired.

Akram really connected with our students – especially our boys. His personal story and gentle manner and approach really spoke to them…he has certainly left them with many things to think about, and influenced their way of thinking…

Sharon Warburton

From construction, infrastructure and mining sectors, Sharon understands resilience and champions flexibility, diversity, emotional wellbeing and work life balance.

Sharon Warburton was exceptional – she was clever, inspiring, humorous and practical. She inspired us to be courageous trailblazers through sharing her unique stories and own learning. I know the impact of her presentation has left a remarkable imprint in all the attendees of our event. She is a very impressive speaker.

Neryl Joyce

While it may sound intimidating, she balances her extreme experience with a thoughtful and observant mindset, making her a thoroughly entertaining storyteller.

Neryl delivered a fabulous presentation with the right out of humour, sarcasm, wit and insight which had our audience full engrossed with a mixture of laughs, tears and awe.
