Louise is a communication specialist and proven performer in moving individuals and groups to take positive action through a unique view, an inimitable style and deep insight in her field.
Dr Mahler is the foremost expert in the psychology of face-to-face engagement. With a PhD in Business, and degrees and post-graduate studies in Service Management and Music, together with a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Louise combines her years of professional performance on the European opera stage to put her in a league of her own. These skills blend to bring powerful observation that elicits discernible, positive change in those with whom she works.
In the process of completing her award-winning PhD, Louise observed a ‘missing ingredient’ in corporate leadership around the unsung wisdom of the mind-body-voice connection she calls Vocal Intelligence.
Through her innovative work, Louise developed a unique program that teaches the skills to perform in hostile environments so that you can ‘be heard’, both loud and clear. Her energy and enthusiasm for her topic is presented with palpable expertise and large doses of humour, energizing audiences to achieve things they never thought they would and come out better for the experience.
Louise has worked with politicians, business leaders, managers and groups, providing
education and opportunities for personal, team and organisational improvement. Positive results abound in lessons for leadership, presentation, inclusion and sales – all the fields where presence matters and influencing skills sort the amateur from the professional.
She considers the mind-body-voice connection to be ‘a complex creative tool for effective personal and professional development and a source of deeper understanding and cultural awareness’. Louise shares with the audience new and simple techniques to manage their state, resulting in an integrative personal presence. She aims to give participants a greater awareness of how to express themselves, how to avoid habitual patterns, how to resonate fully with purpose.
She has been referred to as ‘The Wizard of Aus’ and when Dr Louise Mahler takes the stage, her audience is treated to a mixture of transformative education combined with a polished artistic performance.
Her focus is on highly participatory activities, which are conducted with humour and in an environment informed by her musical masterclasses experiences in Europe. Her signature style is fun and candid, full of high doses of humour, reflection, energy and passion. Participants can’t help but get involved in her highly interactive sessions; conservative corporate audiences find themselves breaking patterns and doing things they never thought they would and come out more confident and empowered people through the experience.
Her book entitled ‘Resonate’ is the bible for everyone who wants to unlock their true potential and self-confidence, and allow their message to resonate and to ‘be heard’.
Louise is a highly sought after keynote speaker, corporate coach and executive mentor internationally. She is often called upon to appear as an expert commentator on radio and television, and regularly writes for prominent Australian publications.
