Speaking Topics Include

Master of Ceremonies


Getting everything right to make more money

Being the proprietor of Switzer Financial Services (and a financial planner) he knows the industry and the people who need financial help. He owns an independent firm with no allegiances to any financial institution. He also writes money columns for The Australian, The Daily Telegraph and the Yahoo!7 Finance website, so he is right on the money with current finance topics. He has written five best-selling money books.


Taking your performance from good to great

This is Peter’s current small business speech, which is adaptable for corporate executives or sales teams. Not only does he look at what makes a great business performer, he analyses what you have to do to introduce real change into your lives. This presentation also looks at the characteristics of winning businesses and business performers, and outlines ways to understand your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in order to succeed, and what you have to do to effect maximum change.


Economics: In your face, humorous, accurate

Peter’s economic presentation is technically challenging, but being a former teacher and lecturer he actually explains the charts! He builds humour into the presentation, which is why television programs such as the ABC’s Midday Report and Today Tonight regularly use him to explain current economic conditions and decisions. Peter surveys the best economists in the country for a consensus view but sometimes backs the minority calls.


The carbon crunch

Derived from Peter’s latest book, The Carbon Crunch. With Australia and the rest of the developed world now getting on board the ‘green train’, Peter looks at what is emissions trading and how it will affect business. He not only shows the threats of the carbon crunch but also sheds light on the opportunities for lateral thinking businesses.
