Emma Alberici is one of the country's most respected journalists across print, radio and television.

Starting her career as a cadet on News Corp's Melbourne Herald Sun, Emma quickly rose to become an editor on the business pages before moving to Sydney to take a role at the Nine Network. At Nine, under the ownership of the Packer family, her body of work included the fearless pursuit of the One Tel collapse despite the pressure of knowing it was a controversial decision.

While at Nine, she also wrote three versions of the best selling Small Business Book. As Finance Editor at the ABC's flagship current affairs program, 7:30 Report working alongside Kerry O'Brien, Emma continued to conduct her style of punchy, thoughtful reporting. The HIH Royal Commission garnered one of her most famous (and exclusive) interviews on the steps of court when she asked Rodney Adler what he'd told his kids about going to jail: "I'm being sent to my room".

In 2008, Emma Alberici became one of the first Australian mothers to be posted overseas as a foreign correspondent. She had three children under three. It was the height of the Great Recession. In Australia, we called it the GFC.

Upon her return to Australia in 2012 Emma was offered one of the most prestigious roles in television news and current affairs. For six years she hosted the late night news and analysis program, Lateline where she developed a reputation for rigorous, in depth, long form political interviewing. For the three years before she left the ABC, Emma was the public broadcaster's Chief Economics Correspondent.

She also produced five Foreign Correspondent programs - three of which broke ratings records. She is also regularly asked to host and speak at corporate functions. Her professional speaking about inequality comes from deep personal knowledge built over a 30 year career.
