Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

PEEL Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try has at­tracted one of the big­gest names in Aus­tralia to Man­durah later this year.

Tele­vi­sion and film ac­tor, co­me­dian and writer Magda Szuban­ski will come west to be the key­note speaker at the 2018 Future Proof Peel Busi­ness Con­fer­ence on Novem­ber 14.

In the 1980s, Szuban­ski made her name in the D

Gen­er­a­tion with friends at Mel­bourne Uni­ver­sity and was part of the team that later cre­ated Fast Forward in which she played a range of characters.

In 1995, with Gina Ri­ley and Jane Turner, she wrote and per­formed in the first all-fe­male sketch pro­gram Big Girl’s Blouse, later de­vel­oped into Kath and Kim.

She played Esme Hoggett in the two Babe movies and in 2015 re­leased her award-win­ning au­to­bi­og­ra­phy Reck­on­ing.

Szuban­ski has twice polled as Aus­tralia’s most recog­nised and trusted personality.

Last year, she was one of the most prom­i­nent faces of the Mar­riage Equal­ity cam­paign in Aus­tralia and was a member of the cast of the movie Three Sum­mers, the Ben El­ton movie based on the Fair­bridge Fes­ti­val.

The con­fer­ence pro­gram will be re­leased soon.
