Preparation is Always Key

September 7, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

Nearly 6 years ago I spoke at my late Dad’s funeral service. I loved my Dad dearly and he instilled “Communication” into me. It was only fitting that my brother and I spoke and did him and our family proud at his service. Well…I always felt that I would never be able to speak…aka communicate…at […]

You may be dealing with a Playful Communicator and how they listen or not……. in communication In our recent  post, we discussed the […]



Tame The Media Beast

August 18, 2017 | Theresa Miller

Recently I had the privilege of media training a group of women in who work for Anglicare in Canberra. These hardworking, courageous women are on the front of line of Anglicare’s many valuable social justice programs, such as finding emergency foster care for traumatised children; running mentorship programs for troubled youths; and supporting young carers […]



KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid

August 4, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

When I first started presenting, I wanted to share EVERYTHING I knew about the chosen topic. And I mean everything and in the one presentation!!! The more experience I got ‘under my belt’ and the more I studied other successful speakers, the more I realised the importance of NOT sharing everything I knew. As you […]



Be a Collaborator

July 4, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

I am an avid reader of business and personal development books and biographies. One of the latest books on my bedside table that I’m reading at present is by Janine Garner, “From Me to We”. I bought the book after I recently saw Janine present at a Leadership Academy for my health and wellness business in […]



Is listening Over Rated?

June 26, 2017 | Kylie Warry

Listening is a communication skill that can be taken for granted or missed in our everyday communication. Listening means “The process of listening in Communication when done well involves five stages: receiving, understanding, evaluating, remembering, and responding. Active listening is a particular communication skill that requires the listener to provide feedback on what he or she hears to the person communicating.” Listening can […]



On Stage – How To Be The Ultimate Professional

Group Presenters

I have just had the privilege of attending my third ‘Global Training Conference’ in the USA for my health and wellness business. I saw a number of International guest speakers, both male and female, from Gen Y to Baby Boomer, present to a packed arena of over 18,000 people. The calibre of speakers was outstanding, […]



Be Authentic….And Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

April 7, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

After going through some pretty tough times emotionally and financially over the past year or so, I had been “putting it out there” so to speak. And pun intended! The topic of mindfulness has been on my radar….my RAS, my Reticular Activating System. Recently I posted a comment on FB and tagged a few people […]



The Story of The Chinese Bamboo Tree

March 8, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

The parable of the Chinese Bamboo Tree teaches us lessons about patience, faith, perseverance, growth and development and importantly… human potential! Like any plant, to flourish the Chinese Bamboo Tree requires nurturing – water, fertile soil, sunshine. In the first year, there are no visible signs of activity or development. In the second year, again, […]



Be On Record When You Speak

December 12, 2016 | Pix Jonasson

In the effort of CPI (continuous personal improvement not Consumer Price Index, as an Accountant would say!), I am always open to improving myself. Last month I had the privilege of being the MC for a Melbourne Cup function with over 200 guests at our local RSL Club. The learning experience I gained from this […]
