Talking Points

A post-Pandemic legal landscape for Australian business?

The Pandemic will change the way Australian business operates forever. The changes ushered in by the Covid crisis will have legal and economic implications from employment and management issues as well as contractual arrangements. With court challenges to vaccine mandates and the re-emergence of State sovereignty, how does business face the post-Pandemic legal landscape and meet the challenges of operating in new normal Covid future?

Do you or don’t you? Defamation and Social Media liability and the law

Defamation cases in Australia have increased dramatically in recent times. The liability of publishers on Social Media sites such as Facebook has become a battleground for media publishers as well as individuals and community-based groups. What does a company, community group or individual need to know about this dynamic area of law to avoid liability and exposure for damages in the evolving area of social media activity? To comment or not to comment, that is now the question.

Brand Protection and IP theft in the Digital Age

Intellectual Property theft in the Digital Age continues to be a major issue for business and an ongoing assault on brand equity and value. What are some of the strategies a business can pursue to protect its most important asset, namely its brand, and to stem the flow of damage to its IP in age where digital platforms and hardware has made it easier than ever before?
William your presentation was sensational, I have not seen another speaker at our educationals entertain, enliven and instruct an audience as you did on Tuesday for the ISES educational. ISES

US Consul General

A very polished MC, kept our program flowing easily.

Frankston City Council

Not only is William an inspiration at the conceptual stage of designing an event, but he is a talented and entertaining Master of Ceremonies. He follows in the shoes of our long-time MC, Campbell McComas … this is a hard act to follow but William has risen to the occasion with his fast-moving and original style and spontaneous energy - he is right at home in the role.


Brilliant job, as an MC you bring energy, intellect, wit and humour to your performance work. Eddie thought you were just great with your musical rendition of “Vote Yes, Vote Yes” set to the music of “New York, New York”!

Australian Republican Movement

It was a pleasure working with such a truly professional Master of Ceremonies.
