Testimonials for Jenny Brockie

As the host of Insight, Jenny Brockie has repeatedly proved her supremacy in that most perilous of jobs - TV forum ringmaster … Acting simultaneously as moderator, interviewer and crowd-tamer, Brockie excels where so many flail by corralling her disparate corps of commentators in a manner that emphatically develops issues instead of labouring them.
The Age

Jenny was received well. She engaged well with the audience in her initial opening comments and continued to effectively manage the panel and audience questions time to best meet our objectives.
