ICMI & Adelaide Oval Speaker Showcase 2016 - 19 July 2016

ICMI & Adelaide Oval Speaker Showcase 2016

On Tuesday 12th July, ICMI hosted its Adelaide Speaker Showcase at the magnificent Adelaide Oval, Ian McLachlan Room. It was an early start for our 150 guests and the weather was a mix of sleet, rain, howling winds and one of the coldest days on record, however, they all agree that the calibre of speakers presenting, made this all worthwhile.


Thank you to our event partner, Adelaide Oval, who served a generous plated breakfast as well as a selection of muffins, fruit, and most importantly keeping everyone’s cups topped up with coffee. Also, the wonderful Adelaide Intercontinental Hotel accommodated a couple of our presenters overnight. 

The fabulous Rosanna Mangiarelli, TV presenter and host of Today Tonight on Channel 7 in Adelaide, hosted the morning in her naturally humorous, calm and always professional style and geared the audience up for an enjoyable morning ahead.

Our first presenter of the morning was Justice Stephen Pallaras QC, he gave us stories from his time in the Solomon Islands on the bench and how similar the acts of Domestic Violence can be in totally different environments, his message was that we need to get rid of ‘excuses’.

Next up, we heard from Tiffany Murray, the founder of Dressed for Sale. Her vivacious style was well received as she related her story from Farm to Franchising. She told us how she recently won an Uber Pitch competition on Mark Bouris’s show as well as the time she met her idol, Richard Branson. She explained how she is on her way to becoming a ‘serial entrepreneur’! 

The energetic, wonderful Steve Sammartino came up next. He told us how to mix new technology with not only business but in our home life, he took us on a riveting ride into the future and left us feeling wonderfully positive!

Finally, came Mick Colliss, the magnificent poet, storytelling extraordinaire! He told us his very funny, laugh out loud story of how he has fulfilled his lifelong ambition of representing his country!

The feedback from the event has been phenomenal. Below are just some of the comments we’ve received so far:
