Iconic Australian Communicator & Storyteller


It’s hard to imagine someone in a professional life who has covered as many disciplines and worked across so many vital segments of the Australian communications business as Richard Keddie. Deeply involved in story-telling, movies, TV, politics, social justice campaigns and special events, there’s not much Richard hasn’t done in these areas. (And there’s not much he hasn’t seen or had to manage.)

Current Work

Richard is probably best known as one of Australia’s most important story-tellers. If you think of movie classics such as Ride Like a Girl or Oddball, or compelling dramas such as Little Fish, think Richard Keddie. Or if you want high-end TV dramas such as Hawke or My Brother Jack, After the Deluge or Curtin, think again of Richard. That includes just a few of his awards - 3 AFI’s (AACTAS) for Best Drama. Two Logies for Best Drama. Two times making Australia’s highest grossing movies. And countless other awards and nominations.

But behind that success, and the stories of leadership and creativity is a whole other story. Of using his extraordinary understanding of communication, the media and relationship management, to work intimately with three Prime Ministers and four State Premiers. To launch Federal election campaigns. To write and direct TV campaigns that brought down Federal governments. (Richard has written and directed over 300 social justice campaign ads)

To make campaigns that raised education standards in Victoria and set a national precedent. Campaigns to save the Barrier Reef and the Coorong. Campaigns advocating on behalf of the rights of women - the complex issues of childcare and early learning. Advocacy for the marginalised and the disenfranchised. And much more. Including TV documentaries on the unemployed, the disabled and women’s sport.

His experience is astonishing, and his story-telling skills can be tailored to your organisation’s needs. A process he much prefers.

If you need inspiration about communicating, advocacy, story-telling, handling creative issues and complex staff, marketing an issue. And not to mention running huge budgets around a creative message, then Richard is a wonderful speaker for you.
