- We received great feedback from the session and many of the lessons where incorporated into the teams pitches. Louise's energy and enthusiasm was well received and the team found the key messages very valuable.
- Over the years I have heard a number of similar presentations but never one with such clarity and engagement. Louise is a master of her craft with an amazing combination of experience and talent from which to draw.
Sydney Adventist Hospital
- We organised a retreat with Louise for a group of very senior and seasoned nursing and midwifery managers. What we wanted to learn were new strategies to engage and influence.
What we didn't know was that we would collectively have one of the best weekends of our professional lives – without exception every single participant came away reinvigorated, connected and most importantly with a range of new tactics and skills to get our voices heard. We cannot speak highly enough of what Louise has given us.
- If you meet Louise you will never forget her – she certainly makes a strong impression. Louise has a powerful message which she delivers in a way that makes you sit up and take notice. I was delighted to work with her at a conference we hosted for Managing Partners from across the globe. I was even more delighted when, six months later, they were still raving about Louise.
- Many said that your session was the best one in the whole program.

Vocal Intelligence: The Missing Leadership Ingredient
This all-singing, all-dancing keynote looks at the ignored area of the voice, the mind-body-voice connection and how you can make voice a choice.
Shaking All Over

The body tells all and Dr Louise Mahler is a leading thinker in how we translate its hidden messages - what it tells others and what it means for your own personal state of mind.
