We persuade and influence people every day of our lives. Sometimes we win. Sometimes we lose. Want to win more?

Speak Up and Influence People is a high energy, research-based, interactive session that shows you how to transform yourself into a more persuasive communicator at work, at home, all the time, no matter the circumstances.

Time and time again, Michelle Bowden never fails to deliver a first class session! A sincere thank you Michelle, for being part of the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand conference program in 2014. As always, a pleasure working with you. We put on over 50 Professional Development sessions across 5 conferences nationally and you were our top performing presenter for 2014. A brilliant and well deserved result! You produced a professionally delivered, engaging session with clear key messages and loads of energy and interaction. Our delegates loved it and it’s no surprise they want to see you again!

A high-energy, entertaining speaker, Michelle sold selling to the 'sellers' during a recent presentation to the Australasian Promotional Products Association (APPA). Marketing and creativity is the bread and butter of our business, but Michelle was able to teach us a thing or two about the gentle (and subtle) art of persuasion. Michelle's knowledge of promotional products demonstrated her impressive commitment to research and the result was a memorable presentation that had many APPA members asking for more.


A fantastic, high-energy presentation that was so well tailored to the group's needs. I've been to comedy clubs where the presenter wasn't as funny as Michelle. The energy in the room was electric, we definitely learnt while we laughed. We will all be better at persuasion from now on. Highly recommended!

AMP PA Conference

We recently engaged Michelle to deliver her 'Speak Up and Influence People’ at a quarterly meeting of the Queensland Funeral Directors Assn. Sounds like a very tough gig! In fact, Michelle’s ability to ensure participants have fun whilst learning is phenomenal. Her research and expertise into our specific challenges ensured that members left equipped to be more valuable to the families we serve. Of course, we have rebooked Michelle to take us further.
