More about Dr Louise Mahler:
A foremost expert in the psychology of face-to-face engagement, Dr Louise Mahler has a PhD in Business, and degrees and post-graduate studies in Service Management and Music, together with a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Combined with years of professional performance on the European opera stage, she is undoubtedly, in a league of her own. These skills blend to bring powerful observation that elicits discernible, positive change in those with whom she works.
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.
She considers the mind-body-voice connection to be ‘a complex creative tool for effective personal and professional development and a source of deeper understanding and cultural awareness’.
Louise has been referred to as ‘The Wizard of Aus’ and when she 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.
Dr Louise Mahler is also an expert commentator on radio and television, and regularly writes for prominent Australian publications. 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’.
Your sparkling energy, tireless zest and passion for knowledge-giving amazed and inspired everyone in the room. Feedback has been about your side-clutching sense of humour and sensational impersonations … that you are the best speaker ever and that your techniques will make a difference in their lives.
-Parliament of Victoria
Louise achieves a wonderful sense of engagement with her audience. Her recent presentations to our syndicate groups on ‘Vocal Intelligence’ have placed her in our top speaker category- of all time. She has inspired our (very experienced) CEO’s to apply new “mind-body-voice” techniques to their business and personal lives- with real success. Louise is a professional who can be relied upon to deliver beyond your expectations.
For the past several years Louise has worked with MBS on the Senior Executive Program which is one of the Executive Education unit's Flagship Programs. She has undertaken a small segment of approximately 1-2 hours. Participants are either CEOs or top echelon Executives from National or international Organisations representing many countries from the Asia Pacific region. On each occasion she has presented a stimulating, exciting and always well received program, people inevitably report that she has given them new perspectives and insights and that their learning was greatly enhanced by her material and her methods of presentation.
-Melbourne Business School
Louise has an amazing ability to instantly connect with her audience with her enthusiasm, energy and passion in delivering her message … to say that Louise has a gift for public speaking is almost an understatement. Not only is her work thoroughly researched and structured for optimal learning, but it is fun and enjoyably interactive.
-The Coaching Connection
For my part I rated it outstanding. This should be a compulsory topic for all groups. In fact, it should be incorporated in TEC Chair training. Everyone was really alight after the presentations. My observations were that you engaged the groups better than any other speaker I have seen in many years.
You were a star. We have never had people receive ratings of 6 out of 5 before. Well done. It was everything I knew it would be for the session, and I have heard from a number of delegates who are already reaching out to you for in-house activities.
