Test drive your next speaker at AIME

( You wouldn’t buy a new car without a test drive, so why would you engage a speaker without hearing and seeing them in action first?

Reed Travel Exhibitions has teamed up with ICMI Speakers&Entertainers to let you experience the excitement and motivation of four leading Australian-based speakers at AIME 2008.

The AIME ICMI Speaker Showcase will be held from 8am to 11am on the first morning of AIME, Tuesday 19 February.

Steven Van Aperen – The Human Lie Detector

Steven Van Aperen, the man dubbed The Human Lie Detector, is an expert in the field of interviewing and detecting deception. He has received extensive training from the world’s leading international investigative authorities in how and why people deceive and is often consulted by the media.

Steven has conducted thousands of interviews ranging from interviewing homicide suspects to pre-employment screening. Drawing on real life examples Steven demonstrates how we use language, paralinguistic styles, past tenses and body language to deceive others and how to recognise when people are engaging in such behaviours.

Khoa Do - 2005 Young Australian of the Year

Khoa Do is a film director, screenwriter and teacher who has had extensive experience working with the most disadvantaged in our community, inspiring them and guiding them to incredible success. Khoa’s belief is that everyone on a team, no matter what their background or experience, is extraordinarily gifted and our goal is to help others to realise their true potential.

Khoa’s arrived in Australia as a refugee on a tiny fishing boat crammed full of people and despite incredible opposition became the 2005 Young Australian of the Year. In 2004 he was the youngest film director in Australian history to be nominated for an AFI Award for Best Director. His first short film was short listed for a 2001 Academy Award, and in 2003, he won the IF Independent Spirit Award for his filmmaking.

Most recently, Khoa wrote and directed FOOTY LEGENDS, starring Claudia Karvan, Anh Do and Angus Sampson, and is currently working on MISSING WATER, an extraordinary film that will be released in 2008.

Michael Sherlock - The Brumby’s story from cult to retail franchise leader

Driving a company’s share price from 56c to $3.40 in just over 3 years is a long way from being a yoga cult in the 1970s. But that’s the journey undertaken by Michael Sherlock as he transformed leading Australia and New Zealand bakery franchise into an Australian business success story. In July 2007 Brumby’s was purchased by the ASX listed company, RFG for $46M.

Michael has appeared on current affair, news and breakfast television programs in Australia and New Zealand on issues such as his innovative management techniques and business strategy.

Along with his distinctive humour and references to his inspiration in rock and roll, you’ll gain real insight that you can apply to your own businesses.

Stephen Tighe - The importance of applying foresight in today’s changing times

The rate of consumer change is more rapid today than ever before. So why do most businesses look to the past in order to make decisions about the future?

The complexity of today’s society has ensured that the traditional measures of market segmentation are becoming less relevant. More than at any time in Australia’s history, companies and marketers need to acquire a deeper understanding of their customer’s values and mindset. What are the underlying values of Australians? How and why are they changing? And what does this mean for your organisation?

Stephen is Foresight Manager at one of Australia’s leading consumer goods companies. He has focused on the evolving mindsets of Australians and the future implications of these changes.
