Testimonials for Genevieve Jacobs

Genevieve is a highly capable conference facilitator – erudite, engaging and entertaining. Her depth of journalistic experience also means she can condense a vast amount of information and discussion from the presentations to a concise ‘end of the day’ summary for delegates and is agile in driving Q&A sessions with speakers to delve deeply into the topics.

“I have known Genevieve Jacobs for some ten years. She has been a great help to Manning Clark House as a chair of discussions and events, dealing with very distinguished speakers and a sometimes bolshie audience. She always manages this with great aplomb and with the greatest good humour. Genevieve is an ornament that must continue to shine in the area of communication and beyond.”

Sebastian Clark, President of Manning Clark House

Genevieve Jacobs's Biography

Genevieve Jacobs is a journalist in print and radio with 30 years’ experience behind her. She worked for over 10 years for ABCX Canberra, reporting on a plethora of topics from politics to human interest stories. Genevieve is a passionate story teller who has an ongoing interest in strengthening community engagement.

Telling our city's stories is her great passion. She works with a wide range of organisations including the Tara Costigan foundation, Gift of Life ACT and ACT Wildlife Rescue among others, sits on the ACT's advisory committee for historic places and the boards of the Canberra International Music Festival, the National Folk Festival and the Conflict Resolution Service.

Genevieve knows that good communication is, first and foremost, about listening. Listening precedes understanding. With understanding comes confidence, respect and the ability to contribute. She is able to identify and articulate those things that ring true in our daily lives, to draw focus on the detail - the little things that point to the meaning.

She has capacity to master complex matters rapidly and to distil the essence of any issue with clarity and precision. From a mass of fact, opinion, creativity and reality, Genevieve draws people together and leads them in the search for practical outcomes.

She is highly respected and sought after as a conference chair, facilitator and moderator, emcee and speaker.
