What type of venue is best for a speech?


Our preference for a presentation is a school theatre/lecture theatre. This allows us to darken lighting and improve the quality of the presentation. Presentations tend to be difficult and lower quality in gymnasiums.




What time do your arrive for speeches?


David will arrive at your venue at least 30 minutes prior to the presentation to meet with you. For school presentations, AV connection and preparation usually takes an average of 15 minutes.




What topics can you speak about?


Most of David's speeches cover topics focused on modern self development, productivity, social media and leadership. If you have a particular topic please include it on your enquiry form when you Contact Us and we'll do our best to accomodate this.




What year groups/ages can you speak to?


David can present to all ages and all year groups. Most of his school bookings are for years 5 - 12 but he also often presents to parents, organisations, companies, universities and local youth groups as well.




What is David's introduction bio?


David Castelanelli (Phonetic Spelling & Pronounced: CAST-ELLA-NELLY) If this is your first session, David will introduce himself and explain his own mission at the start of the presentation.

David has been voted as one of Australia's Top 100 Young Leaders and is currently appointed to the Minister's Youth Advisory Council"




What staff presence is required at the presentation?


The normal student/teacher ratio is required during all presentations (as per normal assembly guidelines). Many staff have personally benefitted from watching David's presentations and continue to follow up with students by referring back to his content.




What do students need to bring with them to the presentation?


We recommend that students bring a pen and notebook to the presentation. Students often take notes on important concepts and theories which they can refer back to later. Detailed booklets are provided for students during our full day programs.




When do we have to pay for the presentation?


All of our presentations are required to be paid in full at least seven (7) days prior to the presentation date. If there are any issues with this policy, please contact our finance administrator via enquiries@davidcastelanelli.com

Once you have completed our official Booking Form we will send you a CONFIRMATION EMAIL to notify you of confirmation.

If your presentation includes additional resources, you will receive these via email on the day of presentation. Survey results are usually emailed out 48 hours after the presentation if the students have been given immediate access to the survey.





Long Term Programs

What type of venue is best for the program?


Our preferred venue for long term programs is a large classroom (fits up to 40 people) that is relatively close to an oval or break out space. This allows us to run interactive activities with students.




What ages/year groups are the programs available to?


Our programs are targeted predominantly at primary & high school students ranging from years 7 - 12. We also offer our long term programs to organisations and councils for a whole range of ages. Please Contact Us and we'd be happy to discuss our options and find a fit for your needs.




How many presenters attend the programs?


We try to establish a good relationship and constant contact between our presenters and their audience and hence try to keep the same presenter through-out the entire program. Most of our programs run with 1-2 presenters depending on availability and needs.




How do you measure the results/performance of the programs?


Our program results are measured using a range of qualitative and quantitate data sources. Students complete an online diagnostic in the first and last weeks of the program to determine growth and tangible changes. Students also complete a detailed feedback and reflection form in their final week of the program. This feedback is then available to the school, teacher, parents and organisation.
