Kellie Curtain's Biography
Speaker, MC, Panel Facilitator
Kellie Curtain is an author, journalist and communications expert with a love of family, her tribe of women, and the power of a bright lipstick.
The mother of four has a degree in nothing but feels like she has a Masters in Procrastination. Writing a book was never part of her plan, let alone one including conversations with her dying mother.
‘What will I wear to your funeral?’ was named as a Distinguished Favourite in the New York City Big Book Awards. The memoir is funny and heartbreaking in equal parts and a powerful catalyst for prompting discussions many are fearful to have about dying.
“Reading this book was the most heart wrenching yet heart expanding experience.”
Maggie Beer AM
When invited to speak, Kellie is entertaining, thought provoking and uplifting.
Kellie wrote the book whilst living in the Middle East. She had traded her career as a television news reporter for the role of trailing spouse. Six years as an expat taught her Pilates, pony riding and patience. It was underscored and enriched by female friendships that, though fleeting have left an indelible mark.
She is a board member for Motherless Daughters Australia. The not for profit organisation has committed to building a support network for those who must navigate a future without their first and most influential relationship of all.
As host of Breast Cancer Network Australia’s podcast series Upfront about cancer, Kellie has returned to her love of sharing other peoples’ stories. A branch out series ‘What you don’t know until you do’ with a Clinical Psychologist is compelling listening.
Kellie is a natural storyteller, her humour, warmth and honesty is captivating. She is also an experienced MC and Panel Facilitator.
