It's no longer...
'Business as usual'
Best Selling Author
Ambassador The Rights of Girls Initiative, Africa
Toni Fitzgerald is an engaging and passionate motivational speaker having worked in radio and with the four major television networks as well as gaining a real-world, bricks and mortar background in marketing strategy, advertising and promotion for B2B, retail and lifestyle companies. She was the marketing brains behind the most successful retail launch in Australia’s history, The Queen Victoria Building in Sydney.
Toni has recently been recognised by the American National Academy of Best Selling Authors and presented with the prestigious Gold Quilly Award. Toni has spoken internationally and now shares her lessons on the value of connecting with both customers and perhaps more importantly with employees and how savvy businesses are using this engagement to motivate their employees and foster initiative.
Toni speaks from the heart about lessons learned from the challenges in her career – from sidekick to Humphrey B. Bear, to national current affairs TV journalist, high profile corporate marketing manager to the very ups and terrible downs as a business owner. In addition, the stories of her challenges during her time spent in Africa are funny, sad and inspiring all at once.
Toni is not just an international motivational speaker, she is a consultant, a recognised thought leader and troublemaker who has refined the area of personal branding for business growth. She promotes the persuasive value and power of story in business and entrepreneurism, and knows the steps necessary to achieve success in marketing through storytelling and media.
Toni believes that the fast and changing pace of life today has left most of us not knowing who we are and what we want… and until we can connect with our own self, we can not be happy in the job that we are doing, or the company for which we are working. Toni is not just a motivational and business speaker, but she has a strong focus on guiding her clients in developing sustainable, self-perpetuating and loyal relationships with both their customers and employees.
Toni is also a passionate believer that when it comes to our working lives we should be doing what we love, and she helps CEOs, entrepreneurs and professionals become the recognized Celebrity Experts in their field so they can grow their businesses faster, and love doing it! And that is why, Toni says, the number one question on people’s minds these days is ‘What drives you to do what you do?’
As Toni says: “It’s no longer ‘business as usual’”.
As well as being a highly acclaimed Motivational and Business Speaker, Toni also speaks and consults about:
“I always look for very specific things from speakers and their presentations. Do they know (as in REALLY know) their stuff? Do they know how to present it so that they truly engage an audience? Do they do it in such a way that the audience feels, ‘WOW, I learned some great things there that I can apply right now?’ and finally – Do they do it in such a way that the audience has no concept of time passing? Toni scores 10 on each and everyone of those points. And to top it off, she’s professional in every sense of that word”.
