Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Yvonne Adele has been described in client testimonials as inspiring, interactive, vibrant, thought-provoking, well-researched, experienced, memorable, flexible, friendly and ‘a breath of fresh air’. A Microsoft graduate with a couple of decades of corporate experience, Yvonne created the Ms Megabyte brand/persona in the mid 90′s. This led to a national media profile and best-selling book (Conquer Your Computer). Ms Megabyte was also the author of Australia’s PCs for Dummies, and a Telstra Business Women’s Awards Finalist.
During her 10 year stint as Ms Megabyte, Yvonne assisted thousands of Australian’s to embrace their technology and travelled around the country and overseas as IT Reporter for the Today Show and enjoyed a long residency as columnist for Woman’s Day and Womens Weekly. During this time, Yvonne responded to requests to speak at conferences and found it to be her absolute passion.
She eventually left the media behind to concentrate solely on speaking and consulting and has spoken to over 500 groups including NAB, Society of Consumer Affairs Professionals, realestate.com.au, Telstra, Schwarzkopf, Neways, LJ Hooker, Intel, Microsoft, Fujitsu, Mitchell & Partners, REIV, Austereo, Westpac, Westfield, Optus.
Yvonne has been the National Vice President of the National Speakers Association of Australia and twice Vic State President during which time she achieved the designation of CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), an accreditation held by only 100 speakers in Australia.
Yvonne is available to present a keynote or interactive workshop session on Social Media or Creative Thinking and she is also an experienced MC/Facilitator.
Thank you again for the very practical way you engaged with the group. They will never look at a problem in quite the same way. The feedback showed that they would now be able to come up with a creative solution if they just followed the easy steps you walked them through.

Very well received by our delegates. Very different – exactly what I wanted. Yvonne developed great interaction with the group.
