Ready to spark big ideas at your next event or workshop?

These days there’s no shortage of people calling themselves expert speakers, but I’m the real deal.

Along with a truckload of speaker credentials I have an informative, smart and engaging approach to every speaking gig. Subjects like SEO, and Digital marketing can be pretty dry. But I’m here to make them moist!

Whether you need a keynote, panel guest, or a memorable speaker, my superpower is in turning practical business know-how, into language which really connects with your audience.

If you’re looking for an engaging, approachable, experienced speaker for your next event, well here I am.

I’m a confident, cheeky, smart and engaging marketing speaker, who creates an instant connection with your audience and delivers content in an enjoyable and memorable way.

No sleepy eyes or watch-checking when I’m on stage, I guarantee it.

I’m a digital educator, SEO and copywriting coach, and misfit entrepreneur, and was recently named Businesswoman of the Year at the My Business Awards.

I’ve spoken at events around Australia and the world, and run hundreds of online workshops through my various communities and courses. I’m also the founder of Australia’s only copywriting conference, CopyCon.

Over my years in business I’ve built a reputation for my down-to-earth business advice, always delivered with a dash of humour. And I’ve even written the book on embracing your own misfit qualities and succeeding in business: Confessions of a Misfit Entrepreneur.

Whether it’s a business event, in-house seminar, conference, workshop or online event, I’ll provide your audience with relevant, practical and inspiring content that sparks ideas and starts conversations.

I love speaking on any topic related to misfit entrepreneurship, digital marketing, SEO, copywriting, business leadership, personal branding, social media, women in business and all manner of business highs and woes.

“We had Kate Toon speak at one of our events and she was definitely a crowd favourite! She shared so honestly and was very relatable. I highly recommend her as a speaker for any business events.”

Jodie McLean

Director, JEM events

Kate spoke at our event about social media best practices and our members loved her! She delivered simple and effective tips for our tradies to improve their social media and websites and was the perfect mix of education and entertainment.

Kate Toon is a name synonymous with small business women in Australia. She’s accessible, smart, experienced and honest enough to speak the truth about what it really takes to build a business from the ground up. Recently, Kate presented a workshop for our Mums & Co community on “personal branding without spending a cent on ads”.  The topic itself resonated for its easeful solution to what is a common challenge for our community of business owning women, and when combined with Kate’s warmth and sense of fun,  was a terrific success.  As one of our members shared afterwards “I learnt so much and I laughed!”   Kate is a truly valued member of our Mums & Co Expert team, we’re delighted to share her with our community.

Co-founder, Mums & Co

Kate Toon is a very charismatic speaker, SEO expert and a role model in the female entrepreneurial startup space. I have engaged Kate to give presentations to students and my Launchpad entrepreneurial community. She is always dynamic, engaging and down to earth – she understands what the role of a speaker is, to education and entertain. I am always impressed by what I learn when she speaks (even on a not-so-glam topic of SEO) and how she makes everyone feel after her talks – inspired, a little more enlightened and empowered. Cannot recommend Kate highly enough to have as a speaker, educator or just to have in your network.

Chris Edwards

Enterpreneur, | Founder

“We used Kate Toon’s SEO training services recently and I was impressed by a number of things. Kate provided a thorough breakdown of what would be covered and why, which was invaluable in getting approval for the training. She spoke with us at length about our business and tailored the course to our needs. She was prompt and prepared on the day and we had extremely good feedback from the participants. Attendees said they had learnt so much and were excited to start improving our SEO right now! Kate has a lovely personality and presentation style that was greatly appreciated by all – so much so that the group next door had to ask them to laugh more quietly (and asked when they could do the training!) Kate’s knowledge of SEO and SEO copywriting is extraordinary and her ability to transfer this to others is a rare skill. In the time it’s taken you to read this, your team could have been getting you on page one of Google. Book Kate now.”

Emma Gibson

Digital Strategist, Fred Hollows

“Kate is an amazing facilitator and SEO extraordinaire! Her relaxed and knowledgeable training style makes learning fun, she can accommodate all personalities and ensures that participants completely understand the concepts before moving on. Kate’s a high energy professional that I would recommend to all businesses big and small.”
Valentine Borbone

Client Relationship Director, Zuni

“I would recommend Kate at a speaker for an event either about digital marketing or a broader inspirational topic. Kate’s talk with light-hearted and full of humour, yet addressed topics on how to manage your work life balance and live the dream of being your own boss. The engagement and feedback we had from the event was exceptional and she added value to our clients.”
Julie Dormand

Managing Director, MercerBell

“Thank you for making the effort to come in to come and present today. It was such a compelling talk with great takeaways. The feedback across the floor has been really positive, everyone saying how much they got out of the session.”
