Libbi
Gorr

Storyteller. Trailblaizer. Motivator. Entertainer.

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!

As an MC Libbi knows people - from her years as a talkback radio and live TV host. She can keep order and the show on the road whilst entertaining and honouring. A ringmaster extraordinaire, few hold a flame to Libbi’s skills as a live host able to negotiate any situation. Her connection with an audience is authentic, inclusive and secure.
It’s from Libbi’s lived experience as a trailblazing icon in the entertainment industry that her Keynote speeches are wrought. Most inspiringly, it’s Libbi’s instinct to take informed risks to be the best you can be, and bring out the best in others, that speak in the Leadership space. This keynote is called “ The People Bridge” - - about how connections and fortuitous circumstances build a better future.

With her trademark insight, heart and incisive sense of humour, Libbi is ready to play her part in leading the conversations that will take us forward to brilliant days.

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

Current Work:

After a stellar first showbiz career in comedy as Elle McFeast for a decade on ABC TV and creator of numerous iconic tv shows, and a decade of top-rating talkback radio programs on ABC Radio Melbourne and Victoria, with contributing roles on ABC news and 7.30, Libbi Gorr lives in Melbourne with her family, juggling a broad & eclectic creative portfolio.

Libbi now features as a columnist for Selector magazine on food, family, and life and as an Australian contributor on culture and society on the BBC.

Feedback
The crew loved Libbi and she did indeed set the tone for what turned out to be a very happy and vibrant event. People were so joyous to be back together and Libbi made them laugh loud and express their joy right from the get go. Outdoors Victoria

Just a brief note from me to express my personal thanks to you for acting as the MC for the VIP Event celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Courage to Care. It was a very successful function, your relaxed style contributed greatly to the evening.

Courage to Care

Libbi Gorr is the consummate professional. She has this great ability to bring the whole room into the evening and create a sense of inclusivity, interest, intelligence, and really great fun. There is no doubt that Libbi is a major part of making our events so successful and popular.

The Jreissati Family Pancreatic Centre dinner was a wonderful night (and a long time coming!!). Guests were thrilled to be there and to hear about the centre’s work, only launching in February last year. Libbi did a magnificent job at addressing the serious topics, while managing to keep things light, fun and engaging, noting how tragic pancreatic cancer is as a disease. She was also fantastic at leading the panel segment and asking questions that those in the audience may not have been comfortable asking.

Libbi, thank you for the most enjoyable lunch yesterday. Thanks for the enthusiasm and the insight that you brought to the discussion and thank you for the wonderful way that you managed to drive the discussion. Feedback has been just gorgeous and interest in support (from the place cards) is brilliant, so thank you again for bringing such beautiful energy to the event and the conversation we are very grateful.

Kew Junction Business Association

What a fantastic International Women’s Day dinner with Libbi Gorr hosted by the Kew Junction Business Association at the Postmaster Hotel. Wow, did Libbi, a past MLC Kew girl light up the room, hilarious authentic observations of life, reflections of society that made our poor male bar tenders wince…

Libbi Gorr recently spoke at our 2022 International Women’s Day function, she was a fantastic addition to our event, she was interesting and interested in us and our Organisation. She was engaging and included all members of the audience from the men to the younger women in attendance. Libbi was very accommodating and gave freely of her time, she was involved and happy to talk to people, have photos taken and take them herself, giving instructions which were very useful. I find myself saying “Libbi said to do it this way!!” She made notes and referred to the Zonta Club and Melton in her address, she also commented on the achievements of our Woman of Note. Libbi was so easy to talk to and made everyone at ease instantly, a real pleasure and joy to meet her. Thank you.

What can I say…what an incredible event. Thank you so much for your involvement in our International Women’s Day celebrations at Austin Health. We have received wonderful feedback from across the organisation and can’t thank you enough for helping us bring this event to life. You have an incredible connection with people. The way you framed up our event and the conversation you had with our award recipients was fabulous. Each and every one of our award recipients were able to be honest and authentic in their responses and wow, what an impact that had! From the minute we first spoke, the whole planning of the event was just seamless. Once again, my sincere thanks again to you Libbi - I hope we get to work with you again in the future.
