Libbi
Gorr

A unique Australian icon.

Profile

Libbi Gorr has emerged from Australia’s COVID 19 (in Melbourne lockdown nonetheless) with a drive to help Australia thrive and prosper and most importantly, be inspired and entertained!

Armed with a brand-new keynote on RISKS WORTH TAKING, Libbi brings her lived experience as a lawyer, tv host, radio broadcaster and human being with a family to your event with a riveting rollicking tale of RISK - those that pay off, those that don’t, and knowing how to tell the difference.

But when you balance it all up, for a thriving life, there are some risks worth taking.

Broadcasting throughout 2020 from ABC Southbank whilst preparing remotely from home, Libbi experienced firsthand the escalating fortunes of our community through her engagement with Victoria as a talkback radio host; keeping the community connected with the frontline workers, whilst navigating the pain of pandemic induced paralysis in our shared creative Community. We have all learned so much about ourselves and each other during this time - yet we are still discovering exactly what world we are left with to rebuild. With her trademark insight & heart and incisive sense of humor, Libbi is ready to play her part in leading the conversations that will take us forward to better days.

Be it host MC or keynote speaker; you will have laughter and life when Libbi joins your event team.

Current Work:

Libbi Gorr lives in Melbourne with her family, whilst juggling her ABC Radio Weekend Breakfast program and a broad and eclectic creative portfolio.

Libbi features as a columnist for Selector magazine on food, family, and life for the last 15 years and now appears as an Australian contributor on culture and society on the BBC Breakfast show plus numerous BBC radio shows including Good Morning Scotland and BBC News Hour.
After a stellar first showbiz career in comedy as Elle McFeast for a decade on ABC TV and creator of numerous iconic tv shows, Libbi is now happily ensconced at ABC Radio Melbourne & Victoria where she’s played an integral part in the radio line up for the last 8 years.

Libbi is certainly a first-class performer! She did an excellent job at preparing her team for our inaugural great safety debate and delivered a fabulous closing argument. She captured the audience's attention and had them in fits of laughter

Libbi was a sensational start to our conference, her presentation transformed the crowd from 'barriers up' to 'receptive and open' for the rest of the day....her down to earth manner pleasantly mixed with humour allowed her message to relate to everybody. I was also impressed with Libbi making the time in a pre-conference phone interview to understand exactly the crowd she was going to be addressing

Real Estate Institute of Queensland

It was an absolutepleasure to have Libbi facilitate our panel discussion. Her preparation was exemplary. Her presentation was full of humor and intelligence and was received enthusiastically by everyone. Libbi performed excellently. She is an asset to your management group and I would have no hesitation in engaging her again and recommending her to others. Libbi was everything I had anticipated and more.

Rothworx Professional Development Events

Libbi was terrific. Moree certainly knows she was here as the women haven’t stopped raving about her! She hit the nail on the head for a lot of women who took what Libbi said in her presentation about looking after ourselves and for many they are considering making some changes in their lives to enable them to have time for themselves. This is the result we were looking for! She is a very interesting in-depth person who is very knowledgeable and it shows.
