About Our Mentors 

Tom Hendrick 

Tom runs Talent Academy's group workshops and one-to-one training. Formerly a tax lawyer with a top-tier South Australian law firm (Finlaysons), Tom is a professional public speaker and trainer.

Tom has worked with government (inc. the Australian Tax Office), professional associations (inc. the Institute of Public Accountants), individuals, and businesses large & small.

 

Tom's approach to speaking training:

(1) achieving tangible outcomes when you present  ("get a return on investment");

(2) finding ways to reduce preparation time ("time is precious"); and

(3) eliminating "presentation dead space" by using principles distilled from great speakers ("learn from the best").

Sanja is one of the most engaging, powerful and infectiously genuine speakers I have ever met. I've learned more about sub communications in 1 session with Sanja than I have from anyone else. It was fantastic.
