Brett Rutledge is one of the most skilled and versatile communicators in the southern hemisphere and heavily in demand as a dynamic business speaker, facilitator and coach.
In 1998 Brett became the youngest World Champion of Public Speaking at only 28 years of age and one of only 5 outside North America. Not only have other World Champions sought Brett out for advice and coaching to assist them in their own aspirations but many use Brett as an example of a truly gifted communicator who is both different and genuine. As one of Brett's multinational clients put it: 'He just knows his stuff so well and his ability to read people and situations and take the room to where they need to go is just awesome!'
Impressive though it might be, the World Championship is just a small part of Brett’s experience. As an academic he has degrees and awards in marketing, commercial law, management and labour relations.
As an entrepreneur he had established a successful commercial enterprise at the age of 18 and within two years was employing more than ten people. And as a businessman, he has a wealth of experience in senior consultancy roles specialising in human resources, strategic marketing and organisational culture that culminated in a general management role at age 26.
As a communicator, Brett's abilities are so honed and nuanced that he can change his voice and his approach in over 150 different ways. Accents, age and even personalities can all be mimicked or impersonated with the sort of speed most of us reserve for normal, everyday conversation.
Brett Rutledge is an utterly unique talent whose rare ability as a mimic, world beating performance, practical business knowledge and powerful delivery are guaranteed to both entertain and inform. More than that, as the 'Champion's Champion', Brett Rutledge is widely regarded as one of the most skilled and dynamic communicators of his generation!

We couldn't have had a better MC. An MC who can entertain, yet have a complete grasp on issues from economic management to media exposure is extremely rare.
Amazing!! Brett brought the conference sessions to life. He is so professional and approachable, and just knows his stuff so well. The Chairman’s Dinner was first class and his ability to read people and situations and take the room where they need to go was awesome!
Your address was humorous and inspirational and I cannot imagine a better end to our annual Distribution Conference Awards Night.
Brett Rutledge was the star of the show. His delivery and timing were excellent, his jokes just right for the audience and his impersonations flawless.
A very, very funny man!
AHRI will continue to engage Brett as he is a perfect fit for our organisation and consistently receives outstanding feedback.
Excellent MC, very professional and very well received by the audience. A pleasure to work with.
