Current work

Dr Mahler is the foremost expert in the psychology of face-to-face engagement. With a PhD in Business, and degrees and post-graduate studies in Service Management and Music, together with a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Louise combines her years of professional performance on the European opera stage to put her in a league of her own. These skills blend to bring powerful observation that elicits discernible, positive change in those with whom she works.

Previous experience

PHD: In the process of completing her award-winning PhD, Louise observed a ‘missing ingredient’ in corporate leadership around the unsung wisdom of the mind-body-voice connection she calls Vocal Intelligence.

Innovation: Through her innovative work, Louise developed a unique program that teaches the skills to perform in hostile environments so that you can ‘be heard’, both loud and clear.

Clients: Louise has worked with politicians, business leaders, managers and groups, providing education and opportunities for personal, team and organisational improvement. Positive results abound in lessons for leadership, presentation, inclusion and sales - all the fields where presence matters and influencing skills sort the amateur from the professional.

Speaking: She has been referred to as ‘The Wizard of Aus’ and when Dr Louise Mahler takes the stage, her audience is treated to a mixture of transformative education combined with a polished artistic performance.

Her focus is on highly participatory activities, which are conducted with humour and in an environment informed by her musical masterclasses experiences in Europe. Her signature style is fun and candid, full of high doses of humour, reflection, energy and passion. Participants can’t help but get involved in her highly interactive sessions; conservative corporate audiences find themselves breaking patterns and doing things they never thought they would and come out more confident and empowered people through the experience.

Author: Her book entitled ‘Resonate’ is the bible for everyone who wants to unlock their true potential and self-confidence, and allow their message to resonate and to ‘be heard’.

Talking Points

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

Performance anxiety is a cancer of organisational life. It eats at the person interacting, it is contagious to others and it undermines organisational potential. Get back in control with this fun and interactive keynote that looks at fears and send them, instead of you, shaking in their boots.

Body Language

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.

Beyond non-verbal studies, Dr Mahler reinterprets a combination of ancient wisdom and science, unraveling the mysteries of personal presence and how we influence those around us.

Women and Voice

Business perception has placed women behind the eight ball with regard to sounding like a leader. Learn why and what to do about it while maintaining your authenticity and come away singing your way to understanding and enlightenment.

Presentation Skills

Dr Mahler is on a mission to rid the world of boring, meaningless presentations! Remember, it ain't what you say, it's the way that you say it, so get in touch with your full potential and start playing to win.
