An important keynote speaker at your event who's a hoax
Rodney Marks is a corporate comedian. He's based in Sydney and performed around the world. His comic hoax routine relates to the Impostor Syndrome. Many people feel unworthy of their senior roles, and are (unjustifiably) fearful of being caught out as frauds. This insecurity is almost never based on a genuine deficit of talent, skills or experience. It's a lack of confidence. When we see a comedy performance by a corporate impostor, we're reminded of the importance of confidence by a confidence trickster in a safe environment and it's great fun. Rodney says his fees are risable! www.comedian.com.au

Clever legislation stops branding on cigarette packets
Australia led the world in mandating plain packaging for tobacco in 2012. It also requires warnings on packs. The warning on the side of this pack says "The toxic chemicals in tobacco smoke can go everywhere that your blood flows, causing harm all over your body". This year the British Medical Journal published results of separate studies on the impact of plain packaging on the public indicating the laws were producing positive health outcomes.
