Event description
For many years, the Australian public thought they knew Magda Szubanski.We saw her weekly on our screens as the iconic Sharon Strzelecki in the sitcom Kath & Kim.She wowed us as Mrs Hoggett in Babe. We cheered as she accepted Logies, AFIs and People’s Choice Awards. The characters she created in Fast Forward and Big Girl’s Blouse had us in stitches.

It wasn’t until 2013, when Madga came out on national television and subsequently released her memoir, Reckoning, that Australia truly got to know the real Magda Szubanski.

Reckoning was the story of Magda’s own reckoning with the acceptance of her body and her sexuality; it was the story of her reckoning with family and her “warm-hearted, friendly, engaging" father’s work as an assassin during WWII.

Reckoning was brave, beautifully written and, unsurprisingly, it went on to win multiple awards and then, Magda has become an Australian household name for entirely different reasons.

She has become a voice for the LGBTI+ community; she regularly appears on current affairs programs such as The Today Show and Q&A; and she continues to be one of Australia’s most-loved and talented actors.

Magda Szubanski is warm, courageous, determined and brave, and her life has been nothing short of extraordinary. It’s no surprise that she regularly appears in the top 10 list of people who Australians like and trust the most.

Please join us for this special breakfast with Magda, where we’ll delve deeper into Magda’s story of self-acceptance, her work campaigning for equality, and the woman behind the characters we all know so well.

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt in recent years, it’s that when Magda Szubanski speaks, the people of Australia listen. And we can’t wait to bring her to the Business Chicks stage in 2017.
