Testimonials for Theo Kapodistrias

In the lead up to our internal engineering conference at Xero, we were lucky enough to have Theo work with our internal presenters through a workshop on public speaking and presentation skills. Theo’s delivery of the workshop was seamless and highly valuable. Theo has the ability to deliver his workshop and pass on his expertise in a safe yet effective manner. Our internal presenters learnt a lot, and gained a great amount of confidence through Theo’s workshop. The skills they gained from working with Theo really showed when the presenters delivered their presentations to a large audience. I highly recommend Theo as a public speaking coach and speaker.
Project Manager

As a specialist marketing agency, CulturalPulse was delighted to attend Theo's communication masterclass at Mumbrella 2022. Theo's ability to connect through concise, clear and confident communication, embodied the truism he shared that 'all of us are only as good as our ability to communicate'.
International Development Advisor

I’ve had the honour of seeing Theo shine in the spotlight, as well as being the trusted advisor helping others find their stage. Theo is recognised for his broad expertise in helping individuals and groups with keynote presentations, workshops and programs on communication, connection, and personal branding. He has fast become a stalwart in the industry and has a knack for delivering content in an accessible (and often hilarious) way. As the captain of the TEDxHobart conference, Theo is a driving force behind local innovation and entrepreneurship. It is a privilege to know him as an influencer, an educator, a trailblazer and a generally top bloke. I recommend Theo most highly!
Kindred Life

I've known Theo for many years and have always been struck by his keen interest in supporting and mentoring others. I recently attended a session with Theo as part of the Tasmanian Leaders I-LEAD program, where he spoke about public speaking and tips to overcome the nerves (which hey we all need!) His tone, content and humour were spot on and I can't wait to be in the room with him again soon!

We engaged Theo as a virtual panellist for our online “Respect, behaviour & governance” briefing with the Governance Institute of Australia. Theo was engaging, well spoken, and provided clear understanding of industry insight into the topics. His experience and knowledge provided the perfect addition to our professional panel and Theo was very well received by our audience. I would highly recommend Theo as a professional speaker at any of our future events.
Governance Institute of Australia

I recently had the pleasure of hearing Theo speak. Given the year that was, the conference was entirely online. However, that did not sway Theo, he was engaging, inspiring, and innovative in his presentations. The range of topics he presented demonstrated his wealth of experience, dedication, and ability to juggle many roles. Despite not being able to see the audience, Theo still managed to keep us all engaged as evidence in the live chat forums in each session. It was particularly inspiring to see Theo achieve great success but also volunteer his time and effort to help others do so too. Definitely look forward to hearing him present again.
