2020 — 10 speeches
At 24, life was good for Georgina Dent. After graduating with top marks she had landed her dream job at a prestigious Sydney law firm and moved in with a boyfriend she adored. She had the world at her feet and no right to break. But she did. Badly.
Within a year Georgina was unemployed, back living with her parents and suffering such crippling anxiety that she ended up in psychiatric care. Georgina documented her experiences in the brutally honest and warmly engaging Breaking Badly, which was released in May 2019.
These days Georgina is a journalist and editor, and a passionate advocate for gender equality and mental health. The former lawyer is a regular media commentator, public speaker and MC, and is the contributing editor of Women’s Agenda.
Georgina will appear at the 2020 Communities in Control conference.
