MC, Facilitator, Debater & Keynote Speaker

Libbi Gorr is a talented event host and broadcaster on national radio and television. One of Australia’s most recognised media identities, she is personable, intelligent and engaging, with a uniquely entertaining outlook on the world which she weaves into her live acts as MC, facilitator, debater and keynote speaker.

As a broadcaster, Libbi reached icon status for her comedy creation Elle McFeast in the ‘90’s and early 2000’s for the ABC and Network 10. Since then she has made regular appearances on prime time television, creating insightful, moving reports for the ABC TV flagship current affairs program 7.30.

Her award winning and iconic TV portfolio lives on inside Australian hearts: Live and Sweaty, McFeast, Breasts, Sex Guys and Videotape, My Big Bottom, The Whitlam Dismissal (all ABC), What Women Want (Channel 10) and The IF Awards (SBS).

On ABC Local Radio, Libbi Gorr has been a regular presenter of programs reflecting current news and social analysis, with an emphasis upon relationships, wellbeing, social change and the complexities of human nature. Her light touch with difficult issues – particularly pertaining to work, family and drive for success – is steeped with heart, humour and insight. Libbi is part of the 774ABC Melbourne broadcast team.

There is a trailblazing angle to Libbi’s work, as she turns her gaze to contemporary issues, with the wisdom of someone who has built a career in public life. Politics, sport, people, arts, family issues, health and wellness, business and leadership are all areas Libbi Gorr has immersed herself within.

Libbi Gorr graduated from Melbourne University Law School in 1987 and went on to study fine arts and philosophy before commencing a Masters in Law at Melbourne University.

She has written two books Mummy Manners – an etiquette guide for managing other children’s mothers and assorted Mummy dilemmas (2011) and the Bedtime Poem for Edible Children, (2012). She is a regular columnist with the food and wine magazine Selector and is a regular guest commentator on programs such as Studio 10 and The Project.

Libbi Gorr is quick on her feet and thoroughly professional. She fashions her presentation around client needs and culture. There’s no doubt that she is a popular choice as MC, facilitator or keynote speaker.

Libbi Gorr has emerged from Australia’s COVID 19 (in Melbourne lockdown none the less) 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 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 talk back 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 humour, 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.

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.
