Keynote 

Lisa Millar has reported on the world’s biggest stories over the past decade but she’s returned to Australia to take up another challenge – breakfast television. She’s joined Michael Rowland on the couch for the ABC’s morning news program. She brings to the role a vast background in journalism that began at the Gympie Times. From that humble start she headed to Brisbane and then Townsville and Canberra before her first posting in Washington DC just months after September 11. Her foreign postings lasted 12 years in the US and across Europe as she was driven by her love of international news and the fact she was on hand to watch history being made. She has her feet firmly planted in Australia now and is a guest presenter on Back Roads, one of the ABC’s most popular programs that takes her on the road and allows her to switch off the alarm clock occasionally.

The Future of Journalism 

Lisa Millar will draw from her industry experience to provide insights into the future of journalism.
