Great Speeches of 2019 - Tony Wilson
Thursday 30 July - Venue to be announced
After failing to become an AFL player Tony had to find a different way to achieve happiness and he has marked out a unique and creative path. He has won Race Around the World, been named a Sydney Morning Herald “Best Young Australian Novelist”, enjoys a successful career as an author and as a presenter on TV and radio.
As curator of Speakola – a website dedicated to speeches great and small, Tony knows the far-reaching impact a great speech can have. From Jacinda Arden’s response to the Christchurch mosque tragedy to Dylan Alcott’s Logies acceptance speech, words have their power, and he will acknowledge those who have wielded them brilliantly as he takes us on a journey through the best speeches of 2019.
