“Kate Toon is such a dynamic and engaging speaker that the entire room of business owners were fully engaged from start to finish. Kate was able to present the various stages of SEO and its positive value that it will bring to someones business when done correctly. The material truly educated the audience about SEO but in a way that all could understand and implement post event. I love that Kate is so knowledgeable about SEO, but I equally love that she is real, funny and makes people feel included throughout the entire presentation. I highly recommend Kate to any organisation, business etc that needs sound training around SEO and copy-writing.” Angela Henderson

“Kate recently spoke to my mastermind members and she was voted the favourite speaker of the weekend. I chose Kate because she’s knowledgable, funny and delivers content in a way that makes sense for her audience.

On the day we found Kate’s presentation to be practical, easy to apply and engaging, the feedback from the group was that Kate knows her stuff and presents it in a way that anyone could understand and apply.

Kate is an awesome speaker. Thanks for providing immense value”

How it works

We’ll chat to discuss your audience profile, their needs and what you want to get out of the presentation. I’ll then customise all my content to include relevant examples and create a tailor-made presentation or workshop program to match your objectives.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Kate speak to our 250 Blueprint Members at our recent conference in Sydney. Her style is well received, easy to comprehend, filled with awesome information and entertaining to listen to.

She was everything we hoped for in a speaker and would highly recommend her to other organisations. Thanks Kate! Dale Beaumont

Kate Toon speaks with wisdom that comes from years of experience. She makes SEO an engaging and approachable topic by tailoring her content to the audience she is addressing.

She brings humour and wit to her presentations, making her a magnetic and dynamic speaker, able to awaken and inspire everyone in the room.

At the 2017 Artful Business Conference she was our closing speaker and that was the best scheduling decision I made. She ended the event on a fabulous note, made us laugh so hard we cried and was honestly a highlight of the event. Elle Roberts

Artful Business Community

Kate was kind to enough to speak at our monthly meeting and provided a fantastic talk which gave the members five things they could do next day at their businesses to improve their digital presence. The level of interaction at the event and subsequent feedback from attendees has been excellent.

An informative, useful, practical, amusing and highly recommended speaker. Thanks Kate. John Whelan

Previous speaking experience

Here’s just a selection of the of the organisations for which I’ve delivered training and presentations, along with some of the recent events where I’ve been a speaker:


“Kate ran a combined SEO Review / Training session for our team and did an excellent job imparting huge amounts of information to cynical strategists who thought they knew it all – she upped the level of the content to ensure everyone stayed engaged and passed on some of her deep understanding and enthusiasm for the space to the team.” Mike Zeederberg

Managing Director, Zuni

“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
