Introducing a 30 year public speaking veteran. 


Michael began his professional public speaking career at eighteen when he became the youngest Show Announcer in the history of Sea World on Queensland's Gold Coast.  Across the next two decades he would go on to not only serve as a professional Voice Over Artist and Keynote Speaker, but also as a Corporate Emcee with clients such as TOYOTA, COMMONWEALTH BANK and QUEENSLAND TOURISM to name a few.  

While maintaining his theme park career Michael has worked successfully as a professional actor across film and television, with credits including appearances with Bert Newton on GOOD MORNING AUSTRALIA, Host for two seasons of the KING GEE JACK OF ALL TRADES on the NINE Network, and playing former Head of the Australian Federal Police, Mick Keelty, in the telemovie 'SCHAPELLE'. 

As Head of Entertainment with Village Roadshow Theme Parks (since 2005) Michael continues to further expand his talents across both the writing and producing of live show content and major events respectively. 

The Stand & Deliver program has not only been designed by Michael but is directly facilitated by him, it is the culmination of a lifetime spent deep within the entertainment industry and behind the microphone.

"There is no need to fear the act of public speaking once you have the basic tools to bring your voice alive.  The Stand & Deliver program is deliberately straight forward and energetic.  By the end of your time in the session you will hear the results and feel an all new level of personal confidence."
