Brett Rutledge is one of the very few people outside the USA to win the World Championship of Public Speaking. He is a truly gifted communicator who knows how to engage people and make your business message heard.
He is regarded as one of Australasia’s top ten masters of communication and his clients include respected multinationals such as Fuji Xerox, Canon, BHP Billiton, Vero, Axa, IBM, J D Edwards, Samsung, Westpac, Kenworth, Ford, Peugeot, ANZ, HSBC, Fonterra, General Motors, Caltex, DHL, Bridgestone, Nestle and Stihl to name just a few.
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. 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 has an astonishing repertoire of more than 200 on-the-money characterizations of some of the world’s best-known celebrities. Laugh with Billy Connolly; learn to be Elvis; play games with Julian Clary; battle Darth Vader in a light-sabre duel; sing along with Neil Diamond, Roy Orbison, Dean Martin, Joe Cocker, Louis Armstrong, Frank Spencer and Kermit the Frog!
Audiences are mesmerized by Brett’s remarkable ability to replicate even the most subtle gesture and nuance. Topical subjects, audience participation and great music are just some of the variations that can be brilliantly blended together to generate non-stop laughs.
Brett 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 “Champions Champion”, Brett is widely regarded as the most skilled and dynamic communicator of his generation!
