Speakers Profile - Courtney Dober

Travels From:

Courtney Dober is a fresh new talent who burst on to the screen as part of the Getaway European Road Trip in 2009. Courtney was lucky enough to be chosen to take part in what some would say is a rite of passage for young Australians. Getaway presented a 6 week 10 minute segment special featuring the four travelling around Europe in a campervan.

The four people selected had never met each other until Getaway brought them together in London where they collected their van and headed over to Amsterdam via ferry. From Amsterdam the travellers followed the Rhine to Cologne in Germany en route to Paris. The road trip continued through the south of France before winding up with a big finale at the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

Hailing from Sydney's Northern Beaches there is more to Courtney than the average beach boy. Typically he is an adrenalin junkie and loves to surf, kayak, snowboard and as well as go on spontaneous road trips in his vintage Kombi. Courtney is also an industrial designer and an inventor. His inventions have featured on TV and he currently has loads of ideas in various stages of development, some which look set to go in to production later this year. Courtney is also a part-time childcare worker and model.

Courtney is very practical and is currently restoring his Kombi Van which he has recently put in to action making a Travel show pilot with his brother (who is also a model). Courtney has a passion for TV and is working towards a role as fully fledged TV presenter.
