Dave Burton was fantastic! We received very positive feedback about Dave’s talk, and the question and answer session. He was very inspirational.
Donna has conducted author visits a number of times at our school for a wide variety of classes from Kindy to Grade 6. Donna’s vibrancy and enthusiasm holds the children’s attention as she shares her love of literature and reading with the students. Donna’s passion shines through as she explains the process of creating the books and tells stories of the museum artefacts that have inspired them. Donna encourages the children to participate in the story readings and they parti [...]
Sophie was brilliant, informative, tailored to meet what the kids were doing, exploring in class. The writers workshop was also great, kids got a lot out of it and are enthusiastic to write and have their work shared with others. Really enjoyable.
Richard shared his personal experiences and stories which helped the students connect with him. Showing the children about drafting his book was an eye opening look into being an author. The presentation was very interesting, engaging and funny and the students thoroughly enjoyed it. He was very generous with his time in interacting with the groups and individual students (a lot more than was expected).Overall Richard's presentation was very engaging, age appropriate and informative.
The presentation that Frances gave was spot on and exactly what we were after. Her work with the girls was incredibly valuable in giving them confidence and providing a set of basic guidelines that can be followed.

I asked for recommendations of presenters in my area and received a detailed and informative response that reflected how well Speakers Ink know their presenters.
Jenny Wang helped us kick off a week long celebration of learning as part of Catholic Week activities at Jubilee Primary. With Jenny's expertise, all students successfully created their own manga characters, inspiring some students to submit art work for the school's mini Art Show. Jenny's own passion for using animation to spread positive community messages could be a great starter for students building their own community message.
Simon Higgins was just brilliant. The staff and students were very impressed with his outlook and what he had to say. His workshop was well presented and had the students working. Thank you so much for recommending Simon. You were right; he was perfect for our needs in workshopping creative writing techniques for our Yr 8 students.
Nikki’s stories are so interesting. The children are mesmerized by them. How wonderful to have the actual author and illustrator present the story. Nikki has wonderful classroom management skills whilst also utilizing puppetry and singing with her guitar to keep the children entertained. Recommend!
Deb was a very engaging speaker and performer. The children really enjoyed the visit and have been madly borrowing her books. Deb pitched her talk to each year level and managed to have everyone laughing and learning at their level - including the teachers.
