When you’re dealing with any business, you want to know that the person you’re dealing with gets it. You want to know that they understand what you’re after, that they’re on your side, know how to get the job done, and that they’ll do it better than you expected.
That’s Leanne and she’s been doing it for over 20 years now. Relationships are central to Leanne’s success. And that’s not just about staying in touch and saying ‘hi’ and remembering your name. It goes a lot deeper for Leanne. Like understanding your expectations of value and service, and making sure she delivers on that. And when you deal with Leanne, you’ll quickly get the impression that not too many people know the industry as thoroughly as her.
With over 20 years experience, which covers Corporate Entertainment, Keynote Speakers, Event Management, Marketing and Sales, who would be surprised? But, you see, that’s how Leanne has ensured her success in every endeavour – know your industry, know your people, know your job and do it well.
Oh, and when you meet Leanne, I think you’re going to love her!
Justin is one of the key reasons why Keynote Entertainment is able to stand apart from the crowd. You see, there are not too many in the industry who have a broader experience base and skill set covering Keynote Speakers, High Profile Artists, Corporate Entertainment and Talent Management. And a quick trip through his working life is like a whos' who of telent representation. Yet, one thing it does show is how Justin has always been involved with the best in the industry, and the undoubted talent he has constantly displayed.
It all started as a determined and eager 20 year old, culminating now (without giving too much away about his age) in almost three decades of being immersed in the land of Keynote Speakers, Entertainment and Talent Management. At just 21 years of age, Justin was made Manager at Pace Entertainment, which was the corporate booking agency for Austraia Largest Independant Entertainment Organisation. His next move was into Talent Management, specializing in high profile radio personalities and celebrities, before combining this role with the role of Operations Manager at Premier Artists, Austlrais Largest Band Agency. It’s here that he gained valuable Management experience, while at the same time co-managing major tours for coutrys biggest names, and gaining invaluable experience in International Tours through the company’s association with Frontier Touring Company.
It was then that Justin moved into the Keynote Speaking industry where he has thrived for over a decade now, taking advantage of his skills as a successful talent agent, manager and negotiator, on top of his expertise in Business Operations.
But it has always be his desire to provide the best customer experience for his clients that has driven his success, he is obsessed with making clients happy and will always do above and beyond to deliver and enjoyable experience.
But you know the best bit? All this experience is now available to you through Keynote Entertainment.
OK, so you’ve got an event on the cards, and you need to find a speaker. Scrap that. You need to find the most perfect speaker that you can’t even imagine.
Good news. You don’t need to imagine who that would be. That’s what Simone does. And she’s an absolute guru at it.
You see, for the last 10 years, since joining the speaker industry, Simone has spent all of her energies on making sure that her expertise in speaker engagement is second to none. What this means is that her knowledge of speakers is so vast and comprehensive, that she can tailor the perfect speaker – indeed tailor the perfect program – for your event to make sure it’s exactly what you couldn’t imagine.
What makes Simone so fabulous, is that she’s spent the last 20 years at the forefront of event management, coordinating events as large as 1500 delegates and as small as 30 people. That’s why we love having her at Keynote, and that’s why we know you’ll love her too.
What is it that makes you smile? Someone who doesn’t just listen to your needs, but actually understands them? Someone who just ‘gets’ it, and makes sure they get it done? Exactly! But do these people actually exist?
You bet they do! In fact, she’s right here at Keynote and her name is Carly Clelland.
But you know where she gets it from? It’s called experience. We’re talking 13 years in the advertising, marketing and event promotions space, building targeted marketing campaigns for many of the biggest Australian brands. We’re talking many years at Sydney’s 2GB Radio Station, arranging program sponsorships for key talent. And we’re talking half a decade working for one of Australia’s leading eCommerce organisations, LUX Group.
We’re over the moon that we’ve been able to secure this kind of experience at Keynote, too, because with that experience comes an understanding of the importance of honest communication, providing unique ideas and consistently delivering measurable results. And an understanding of the importance of keynote speaker selection and the influence it can have on how your audience feels.
You’re probably smiling already, aren’t you? And you haven’t even met Carly yet. We were exactly the same. And we can’t wait ‘til you meet her.
What do you think is the secret to keeping clients coming back for more? Impeccable service? Understanding exactly what they need and acting upon it? You know what the secret is at Keynote?
