Book Yvonne Adele for speaking engagements & events.
Yvonne Adele has been described in client testimonials as inspiring, interactive, vibrant, thought-provoking, well-researched, experienced, memorable, flexible, friendly and ‘a breath of fresh air’.
A Microsoft graduate with a couple of decades of corporate experience, Yvonne created the Ms Megabyte brand/persona in the mid 90′s. This led to a national media profile and best-selling book (Conquer Your Computer). Ms Megabyte was also the author of Australia’s PCs for Dummies, and a Telstra Business Women’s Awards Finalist.
During her 10 year stint as Ms Megabyte, Yvonne assisted thousands of Australian’s to embrace their technology and travelled around the country and overseas as IT Reporter for the Today Show and enjoyed a long residency as columnist for Woman’s Day and Women’s Weekly. During this time, Yvonne accepted requests to speak at conferences and found it to be her absolute passion.
She eventually left the media behind to concentrate solely on speaking and consulting and has spoken to over 500 groups including NAB, Society of Consumer Affairs Professionals, realestate.com.au, Telstra, Schwarzkopf, Neways, LJ Hooker, Intel, Microsoft, Fujitsu, Mitchell & Partners, REIV, Austereo, Westpac, Westfield, Optus.
Yvonne has been the National Vice President of the National Speakers Association of Australia and twice Vic State President during which time she achieved the designation of CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), an accreditation held by only 100 speakers in Australia.
Yvonne is equally at home as MC of your event or delivering a keynote or workshop on Social Media or Creative Thinking
A great MC will weave the speakers together in an overall story to support your conference theme. The MC should be able to effortlessly bring the energy up in a conference-weary room and pay respect to each speaker with a well crafted, succinct introduction followed by a thoughtful short wrap-up reminding delegates of the salient points.
Mastering Social Media Tools in less than 10 Minutes a Day.
Keynote Or Workshop (45mins – 1.5hrs)
The never fail way to build a list of brand advocates (followers).
- How to have technology at your fingertips, so you become irresistible to clients
- Where social media MUST fit into your marketing strategy (and if you didn’t have one, how social media is the only marketing strategy you’ll need)
- How you can utilise 3 free technology tools to engage with your client base in less than 10 minutes a day
In this session, Yvonne will UNPLUG social media. You will discover how you can STAND OUT amongst the conversations that are already going on in your area of expertise / industry.
Yvonne will illustrate how you can earn attention and stand out by creating content that is relevant, interesting, valuable and useful and then giving it away. This leads to a network of advocates (followers) who will not only purchase your products and services, they will spread the word FOR YOU to their network of advocates.
Creative Thinking / Brainstorming
Yvonne believes everyone has unlimited ability to think creatively about everyday challenges, and she is on a mission to show people how to unleash those hidden talents.
She calls it a ‘friendly poke in the eye’.
Every conference or gathering aims to stimulate, educate and inspire new ways of thinking. So why not harness this energy by holding an “Ideas Summit” at your event? In this fun and practical think tank, Yvonne will facilitate a powerful idea-sparking process, using the participant’s actual business challenges to help them generate mountains of ideas. What follows is a practical system for evaluating the best ideas, then creating a one-page implementation process to ensure the ideas are swiftly brought to life back at the office. This is a great way to ensure that all the inspiration you have worked hard to create at your event is captured, also that the best ideas are discovered and acted upon.
