Testimonials for Lisa Wilkinson

The conference awards night (with Lisa as MC and host) went off with a bang, and certainly stirred up the males in the audience. I have had nothing but positive feedback. As I expected, Lisa added her own personality to the night and I can’t thank her enough for making the whole event so fabulous!
Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers Association  

Lisa was an amazing and inspiring guest speaker. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed her “tell it like it is” style, wonderful stories, passion for the industry, and her experience in juggling family life with a successful business career.
Dubbo Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Lisa really did add value for our delegates. Despite not having experience in the Financial Services sector, Lisa made an excellent Chairman for our sessions - clearly as a result of much research and preparation for the event. As an MC of our key social function - the Charity Gala Dinner - she was great fun and really managed to motivate our guys into being extremely generous. The feedback from delegates has all been positive.
Financial Planning Conference  

Lisa was very well received and equally popular with the male and female members of the group. She won the audience over early. Her confidence and professionalism, combined with her humour and spark made her the perfect MC for the night. We will certainly be using her again.

Lisa Wilkinson's Biography

Lisa Wilkinson is a much loved family household name. Her outstanding career has inspired and motivated women.  Lisa is an admired journalist and a respected daily co-host on the Today Show.  

For more than two decades, Lisa has blazed a trail through the Australian media landscape, first in publishing, then on to radio and television.  

Lisa’s relaxed and informative presentation style has won her a legion of fans and together with Karl, they have taken the show to new ratings heights since they joined up for the TODAY Show in May 2007.  

Lisa and Karl’s popularity now sees them also hosting many of the Nine Network’s flagship programmes and specials, including Carols By Candlelight, the Australian of the Year Awards, the Federal Election coverage, and major news events including Australia’s disastrous Black Saturday bushfires, the Queensland floods, Jessica Watson’s triumphant homecoming and, more recently, the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton.  

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

Apart from her unrivalled magazine skills, Lisa is also known as a mentor to young women. Under her special brand of guidance and training, there are now 23 women and men around the world who have gone on to become successful magazine editors themselves. Nicole Kidman, Megan Gale and Miranda Kerr can also thank Lisa for her astute talent-spotting abilities and the role she has played in launching their careers. Lisa is married to Journalist, best-selling author and former Wallaby and rugby international, Peter FitzSimons AM, and they have three children.  

The respect she enjoys in Australian media  led to her invitation to deliver the Andrew Olle Lecture in 2013 in honour of the late and respected ABC television host.
