Finding the Voice Within with Michael Croaker
Michael Croaker is the Head of Entertainment for Village Roadshow Theme Parks and a true inspiration.
The epitome of someone who follows their dreams, he masterminds the fun behind so many people's memorable holiday experiences and is a role model to so many who have the honour of crossing his path.
As well as being tasked with this phenomenal job, he also works as a professional actor and voice over artist. You might have caught him on the Vanish Oxi-Action ads last year, remember his voice from the Energizer commercials, or seen him in the telemovie Schapelle. You might have even caught a glimpse of him in Godzilla!
And if this doesn’t keep his days busy enough, he's also the director and facilitator of the Stand and Deliver public speaking bootcamp.
Here, he leverages his three decades of public speaking experience to provide a practical and empowering program for those wanting to enhance their personal and professional standards of communication.
