Master of Ceremonies

Toby Travanner combines consultant, keynote speaker, sales person, manager and facilitator into  his role as MC. Conversant with a number of industries, he captures and motivates audiences by ensuring that key messages from each session are highlighted and linked with each other and that conference strategies and desired outcomes are consistently reinforced. In recent years, he has interviewed such luminaries as Sir Richard Branson, Sir Peter Cosgrove, Rudy Giuliani, Tony Abbott, Nick Green, Julia Gillard, Condoleezza Rice, Andrew Demetriou, John Howard, Mark Bouris, Nicole Livingstone, Matthew Pavlich and Brooke Hanson.


Entertainment at this year's dinner will be courtesy of Mick Colliss. Mick tells a story of a man who desperately wanted to wear the green and gold and represent Australia. After numerous sports - from rugby to lawn bowls, he finally achieved his dream, just not in the way you think. Mick's is a laugh-out-loud true story about mateship, having a ‘go’ and never giving up.
