Speaker announcement: Anne Connolly
We are excited to announce that renowned investigative journalist Anne Connolly will be joining our impressive line-up of conference speakers! In a career spanning more than 25 years, Anne has worked as a reporter, producer and journalist with leading media outlets including The Australian and the ABC.
Winner of four Walkley awards, Anne fronted the ABC’s challenging Four Corners ‘Who Cares?’ report on neglect, abuse and understaffing in aged care. The report aired as Prime Minister Scott Morrison called a Royal Commission into the sector.
We’re looking forward to Anne’s thoughts on the role of the media in exposing elder abuse, and her insights as a journalist with a keen interest in aged care and elder abuse.
