Ali Clarke

Accomplished MC, speaker and facilitator

Ali Clarke is one of South Australia's most popular media personalities and one of the state's best presenters, facilitators and MCs.

Ali is very versatile and has a great sense of humour and both come in handy when hosting events as varied as Sky Racing's Hall of Fame Dinner, The Premier's Food Awards, The South Australian Of the Year Awards Dinner, The Leukaemia Foundation's Light the Night walk and the Adelaide Football Club's Women in Business functions.

Ali is also in demand as a speaker and facilitator and her clients include Coca Cola Amatil, National Pharmacies and The Office of Recreation and Sport.

In early 2014 Ali became a seminar facilitator for Executive Boards Australia.

Ali is also a panellist on Skynews Friday Night Live and she writes a weekly column for The Advertiser on everything from politics to the perils of grocery shopping at self-service checkouts. She is also a columnist for SA Kids, calling upon her own experience juggling a busy working life with wrangling her small children.

Ali also survived more than a decade at the top of the Breakfast Radio game with MIX102.3 and Triple M. During her career Ali has also been a reporter and presenter on Channel 9, 10 and Foxtel.

Ali supports a number of charities and Ambassador for the Phoenix Society, Minda and Carer Support and is particularly passionate about helping people with disabilities.

Ali Clarke is a seasoned media performer and her experience shows in her warm, easygoing but highly professional approach to everything she is involved with.
