A finance correspondent for ABC Radio, co-anchor of The Business Show on SBS and former editor of the Australian Financial Review’s BOSS Magazine, Narelle is known for her incisive commentary on finance, business and leadership.

Narelle Hooper is one of
 Australia’s most recognisable business commentators.

Narelle has interviewed Australia's top CEOs and business leaders and thinkers from around the world. She has finessed the art of turning a seemingly informal interview into a deeper conversation, rich with insights and personality.
