Do we really need to introduce her?
From being appointed Dolly magazine’s youngest editor ever, to gracing our screens for more than 25 years, we’re as accustomed to seeing her face on our TV screens as we are seeing our own face in the mirror each day.
Lisa Wilkinson is quite simply, a powerhouse in Australian media, whether in magazines, radio, TV or online. Lisa has done it all.
And she can now add published author to that unrivalled CV with the release of her best-selling autobiography, It Wasn’t Meant To Be Like This.
In an exclusive event, just for Business Chicks, we’ll turn the tables and put Lisa in the hot seat – as we get to the bottom of her extraordinary life – much of which she has never talked about before.
From what it was like being headhunted by Kerry Packer, to her time working in New York with feminist icon Gloria Steinem, to the sexual assault she has kept secret until now, what made her the boss everyone wanted to work for, the time she dated a member of KISS, to her decade-long stint at the Today Show, to interviewing everyone from Lady Gaga and David Beckham to Jennifer Aniston and George Clooney, to the phone call from a young woman called Brittany Higgins that she says changed her life forever.
Yes, Lisa has done it all.
These will be Lisa’s only live events so grab your colleagues, rally your friends, (or just come alone and make new ones – most people do!) and let’s make up for all the time we lost.
