					       How to Spot an Opportunity for Graeme Bowman



Introduction:


I have carved out a career across Australia as a successful Hoax Speaker, MC,
Corporate Comedian and Keynote Speaker, turning ho-hum into ha-ha at
conferences and events. Also, as a Creativity Facilitator, I motivate people to
challenge their current thinking style, then give them valuable tips on how to think
more creatively. Often I perform several roles at the one event, especially at lengthy
conferences.


I also work as a Writer, Presentation Skills Coach and Actor.


Past clients include IBM, AMP, DaimlerChrysler, Canon, Pfizer, Glaxo, Coca Cola,
BHP, Telstra, Shell, Dulux, plus many associations and government bodies.


My website www.graemebowman.com is my best selling tool; it features numerous
video and audio clips, plus many testimonials from blue-chip clients. Many clients
who book me have never seen me present live beforehand – there's enough on the
website to get me on the short-list. (Or off it!)


I am happy to pay 15% of my fee when a referral turns into a booking (Fees can
range from $3,000 to over $20,000 for my live presenting work, generally less for
coaching and writing.)
