Lisa Wilkinson

Lisa Wilkinson, Guest Speaker, Motivational Speaker & MC

For more than three decades, Lisa Wilkinson has blazed an unprecedented trail through the Australian media landscape, initially in publishing, then on radio and now in television and online. In every forum she has achieved extraordinary success and earned widespread respect.

As co-host of the Nine Network’s Today Show for more than eight years, and in August 2015 adding the role of Editor-At-Large of The Huffington Post Australia – after being personally approached by co-founder Arianna Huffington – Lisa Wilkinson is truly in a field of her own.

Her media career got off to an astonishing start when she became the youngest ever editor of a national magazine – young women’s title Dolly – at the tender age of just 21. Four years later, after almost tripling the circulation, Lisa was head-hunted by the late Kerry Packer, who offered her the editorship of the iconic Cleo magazine. Over the next decade, Lisa guided the magazine to new circulation highs, making it the No.1 selling women’s lifestyle magazine per capita in the world.

With her skills now in demand internationally, Lisa set up her own magazine consultancy, whilst juggling three small children and her new role as radio host, working alongside some of the industry’s best, including Doug Mulray and Mike Carlton.

It was then Lisa made the switch to television, initially with Foxtel on the panel discussion program Beauty & The Beast, then to Channel Seven hosting the Morning Shift and Weekend Sunrise, before joining Channel Nine and Karl Stefanovic at the helm of Nine’s Today Show. Lisa also regularly anchors a number of Nine’s flagship programs, including the Federal Election coverage and Carols By Candlelight.
