Speaker Magazine Author Marquesa Pettway New York City interviews Tarran Deane, Australian Keynote Speaker for the upcoming December 2016 edition


It’s the Saturday morning of the AFL Grand Final here in Australia, and a Friday evening in New York City. My husband gone motorbike riding and I’m here with this gal filming our interview for the December Edition of Speaker Magazine.

Just like players on the sporting field, entrepreneurs, who happen to be professional speakers, need to know when to make their move. We need to know what plays will give us the greatest returns, which players are on our side, which voices to listen to, how to engage the crowd without getting caught up in everyone’s opinions and simply play your best game.

In our interview Marquesa Pettway of SpeakerTalk and Speaker Magazine Author asks me what was one BIG move that shifted my business. In the interview, I:

  • debunk the myths about Speaker Show Reels
  • the importance of understanding right message, right method, right time
  • gaining ROIs on your finances, time, and physical energy
  • how vital it is to be surrounded by people that catch your vision and help draw out your message
  • and importantly to embrace a new sense of boldness and the power of ‘yes’ and ‘no’

If you’re an event professional or a member of a professional speaking body around the world, like Professional Speakers Australia, or National Speakers Association of America and other GSF member countries, do whatever you can to get your hands on the December 2016 edition of Speaker Magazine when it goes to print and follow #SpeakerMagazine on your favourite social media channel.

As the recording becomes available in December 2016, we’ll be sure to provide you with a link right here, so check back in. Set your calendar alerts!

ABOUT THE CO-HOSTS: Tarran Deane & Russell Pearson

Tarran and Russell met during an International Leadership Institute in Arizona, during November 2014 where they were representing Professional Speakers Australia in volunteer Leadership positions in Queensland and Victoria. Both flat out with work, and loving their spouses and kiddywinks, Tarran and Russell weren’t even sure if they’d like each other. Then they met and a madcap, crazy brother-sister relationship emerged. They came back from the United States with some great ideas, purposefully kept in touch, and launched The Awesome Show as a Pilot Podcast Season for Emerging Leaders.

Since launching the Program and partnering together they’ve both enjoyed a great sense of community, strengthened the bonds between their respective PSA states, grown their businesses, spent time with each other’s family and reached more Leaders together!

Now that’s simply awesome!
