Ian Mathieson is an effective keynote speaker, facilitator and trainer. He has spoken at international, national and state industry conferences, facilitated professional conferences and awards dinners, devised and presented hundreds of training workshops for middle and senior managers, and facilitated more than one hundred strategic and business planning programs.
Over the past 20 years, Ian has provided services as keynote speaker, trainer, event and conference facilitator, management consultant and coach in the business, government and not-for-profit sectors across Australia and internationally.
Ian co-authored The Effective Leader, which was launched in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Management. The Effective Leader is widely used as a reference in both operations and training across all sectors.
He understands that in a keynote speaking, facilitating or training role, his overriding task is to be an attuned, active presenter.
Competent hosting is vital to the success of a conference or function; it’s a big part of the glue that holds the ‘content’ parts of the event together. Ian has the depth of experience to manage all aspects of hosting professionally and smoothly; as well, he understands the critical importance of careful and relevant research about both the organisation and the speakers he is introducing. He has a quick and lively mind, incorporates the best of story-telling where appropriate and contributes value in introducing or interviewing speakers. His low-key approach ensures smooth and professional flow for a function or conference.
