Tim Noonan was voted as the 2010 Australian Big Thinker in the Story Telling category in the APG’s & Communication Council’s Inaugural ‘Battle of Big Thinking’ event in Sydney.
“Dear Tim- I wanted to thank you and congratulate you on the thought-provoking and utterly value-adding talk you delivered at the Samplify session at AMP yesterday afternoon. I have had many folks contacting me today to say how stimulating they found the session and how your techniques were simply so powerful in showing them how neglected the auditory perception has become in modern brand and communication strategies given the emphasis on visual media.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you as a key note for any event… your talk has inspired me with a possibility to innovate where I had not even seen a possibility previously.” – Annalie Killian – Founder, Curator and Executive Producer AMP AMP Amplify Festival
“Just fabulous, interesting, heart warming and new information” – Golden Door guest
“My second time hearing your wonderful presentation [on voice and trust] even better the second time around. Inspiring and thought-provoking, your talk has a simple and powerful truth to it that is impossible to ignore. Thank you for reminding me of the awesome capacity I have to connect and build trust with others through voice (it really helps as a speaker!) – Jason J
“Very emotionally enjoyable and a lot of fun” – Golden Door guest
“Tim, I have to tell you, I am in awe of your Sydney speech. It was a magnificent effort. I think you struck an ideal balance between sunlight and substance. Now working on the audio/video files, and you really are a fab speaker. I hope we can do a lot more together in future.” – Jed White, PubCampEvent organizer/sponsor.

“I have heard Tim speak on two occasions now and both times have walked away with much to think about.

“I had heard in advance (from Interesting South) that you had some compelling things to say, and you certainly delivered on the night. It was pitched at exactly the right level for the audience – challenging them and making them think, but without spoon-feeding them on how to do it.” – Sean Adams, APG Chairman Advertising Federation of Australia
“Tim, Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed your voice relationships and trust video at the “battle of big thinking.” It was a great practical lecture, I was really engaged with your storytelling. also cool that the guys sitting behind you, the other speakers were getting into your practical component of your talk too. Nice.” – Leigh Pyman, Voice Teacher

We loved the presentation and discussions and I’ve received very positive feedback from attendees.” – Joseph Ortenzi, Senior User Experience Consultant.
“Tim recently spoke about Vocal Branding and the power of the human voice at the Experiential Marketing Summit which I convened in Sydney. Tim’s session was the last of a packed day, however he was able to keep the audience laughing, involved and fully engaged throughout his content-rich presentation which was fresh, provocative and thought-provoking. The feedback received was fantastic! I would be very happy to recommend Tim to other conference organisers as a dynamic and professional presenter who has great stage presence and a fascinating story to share.” – Mark Harvey, Managing Director, Wakamo Business Media
