A Walkley award winning journalist, Kerry O’Brien has witnessed, reported on and explained life-changing events to millions of Australians throughout his decades long career.
In his memoir, written with wit and great insight, he shares experiences of interviewing Nelson Mandela and being rebuked by Margaret Thatcher; reflects on lessons learned and those ignored and offers his thoughts on the strengths – and the weaknesses – of public figures.
Importantly, he also addresses the big events and news that has shaped our time: ‘Let me get the really big news out of the way up front…I have never dyed my hair. And it’s not a wig. Welcome to the world of television, with pockets of depth, rare brilliant insight but always the threat of superficiality.’
Highly respected over a career that spans 50 years, Kerry O’Brien has specialised in national politics for the ABC as well as the Seven and Ten television networks, and was a press secretary to Labor leader Gough Whitlam.
We’re delighted to be welcoming him to Noosa and this conversation is certain to be illuminating, witty and thoughtful. Join us.
