Speaker and MC

Need an engaging speaker or MC?

I’ve delivered a lot of presentations during my career — thousands over the years — and as a result I’m an experienced presenter. Feedback I’ve received about my presentations is that I am an engaging and enthusiastic presenter who makes audiences think, feel and laugh.

I often present to audiences as hard to impress as those from top tier law firms, the world’s elite banking and finance institutions and senior managers and directors from professional services firms. It is both a pleasure and a privilege to design and deliver a presentation that ‘hits the mark’ with these audiences and has them thinking and feeling differently.

I have delivered keynote presentations as short as 15 minutes and as long as 2 hours. I’ve delivered presentations within organizations, for networking organizations and for expos and conferences. I have been the solo presenter as well as being part of a speaker lineup gathered together around a specific theme.

I enjoy designing and delivering presentations and am always happy to craft a tailored presentation for a specific audience, organization, event or occasion.

Here’s what Alex Mitchell, the convener of Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneurs said:

“Jill Chivers presented to our group recently and the result was outstanding. We had a turnout of participants 30% higher than the average – our biggest meeting ever. Getting media attention is a hot topic amongst business women and Jill is the pick of the crop as a trainer in that field.

Jill is an entertaining and impeccably prepared presenter. She’s an entrepreneur who walks in the shoes of her audience, so her information was spot on.

The buzz on social media after Jill presented proved to me what a powerful impact Jill had on the group. The actions taken and rewards gained by our women in the following weeks demonstrated that Jill’s technique gets results”.

Terri Cooper from Terri Cooper Networking summarizes the impact of my 3-city tour:

The feedback I received from attendees was fabulous. I highly recommend Jill as a top level presenter.”

Need a great MC?

As an MC at your conference, expo, summit or event, I make sure I’m fully prepared and know your event inside out.  I prepare thoroughly.  I also possess that unique combination of skills that encourages delegates to participate, informs them of crucial details, and stimulates engagement all the way through.

I’ll bring humour, warmth and enthusiasm to your event as Emcee, qualities that energise delegates and participants.  I’m tuned into the audience and am able to provide what’s needed throughout the many phases of your event to keep proceedings rolling along.

Need a speaking coach?

I know presenting from the inside out. I have designed and facilitate a two day Masterful Presentation Skills program and have worked with hundreds of high performing individuals and senior managers to unlearn and relearn the building blocks of being a more confident and capable presenter.

One senior partner from a top tier law firm who attended a full two-day program stated that “I recommend all lawyers do this exceptionally beneficial program“.

A senior associate in a national law firm said that “I am now putting my hand up to deliver presentations – previously this terrified me“. And a senior manager from a leading arts council said “Jill creates excellent rapport, delivers outstanding content, she’s challenging and there’s no bullshit. The best trainer we’ve ever had“.

I can help you and your team to become more confident and capable presenters. Contact me today to discuss.
