Event Date

More Information

Get up close and personal with one of Australia’s most admired and talked about journalists

How do you deliver hard hitting news, be a leading business mentor, and balance family life?

Fresh off the TODAY show, and prior to her new appointment on Channel Ten’s The Project, Lisa Wilkinson AM will take the hot seat at our end of year Christmas celebration and talk about her extraordinary success and widespread earned respect.

Lisa is a force to be reckoned with. For the past two decades, Lisa has successfully applied her journalistic talents to magazine publishing, television and radio. Her communication skills have made her one of the country’s most sought-after corporate presenters. Apart from her unrivalled magazine skills, Lisa is a leading business mentor.

Join us for lunch on Thursday 7 December 2017 and let Lisa, Australian television royalty, take you behind the scenes of her journey into the media spotlight. We will hear what it took to achieve success in the cut throat media industry, a mother and a wife.

Lisa will also join Alicia Loxley ‘on the couch’ for a raw and unscripted discussion about achieving success, redefining goals and handling the pressures of being a modern day woman. Gain insights into her struggles in the industry and go away with a renewed perspective on what it takes to successfully master a balance between, family, work and a career.

If you’ve ever felt like a small fish in a big pond this event is for you.

Thinking of bringing clients or your team along? Our annual Christmas lunch is the ultimate way to get together and celebrate your team’s successes, be inspired, reflect on the year and take home some valuable skills that you can carry with you for life.


After-lunch networking

Continue the celebrations and networking after lunch at The Den at the Atlantic restaurant from 3:30pm.
The Den is located downstairs in The Atlantic restaurant, Ground floor at Crown Melbourne.


About Lisa Wilkinson AM
Lisa Wilkinson, former co-host of the Nine Network’s TODAY show, is one of Australia’s most admired and respected journalists and corporate presenters.

For the past two decades, she has successfully applied her journalistic talents to magazine publishing, television and radio.

In recent years before her time on the TODAY show, Lisa was co-host of the Seven Network’s top-rating Weekend Sunrise program where she was credited with attracting a new wave of viewers through her relaxed and informative presentation style.

Lisa’s media career got off to an astonishing start when she was appointed editor of the national women’s magazine Dolly at age 21.

Four years later, on the recommendation of the late Kerry Packer, Lisa was offered the editorship of Cleo which over the next decade, doubled in circulation and became the No. 1 selling women’s lifestyle magazine per capita in the world. Later she became Cleo’s International Editor-in-Chief, running editions in New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.
Apart from her unrivalled magazine skills, Lisa is a leading business mentor and has successfully mentored Nicole Kidman, Megan Gale and Kate Fischer.

And somehow, she manages to successfully combine it all with her marriage to fellow journalist and author Peter FitzSimons and together they have three children.
