Here’s a sneaky peek at the speakers for this event.

Kim Skubris

Kim Skubris

Broadcast Journalist and Keynote Speaker/Trainer

Kim Skubris has been a broadcast news journalist, mostly with the Seven Network, for 25 years. 

During that time, she have reported on some of Australia’s most emotive and divisive stories, natural disasters locally and internationally, and yarns which have touched hearts globally, like the story of Daniel Morcombe which she has had the privilege of telling from day one of his disappearance.

She prides herself on providing a professional, fun, informative, safe and supportive environment for clients to challenge themselves. She believes everyone has a story to tell, but too many people are silenced by self-doubt and naysayers. Her mission is to lead with the heart in everything she does and bring value to the person, group, organisation or audience she is lucky enough to work with. 

She's looking forward to chatting with you, and hearing your story.
