Speakers Profile - Kate Langbroek

Travels From:

Fee Range: E

In life, there are those who dream, and those who DO. Occasionally a person combines the capacity for both.

Kate Langbroek is the latter. From her origin story as a breakout newsreader in community radio (alongside names like Sam Pang, Hughesy, Dave O'Neil and Tom Elliott) to launching her award-winning career as a radio star across every major commercial network, as a founding panellist on the ground-breaking Channel 10 show The Panel or through countless appearances on Australia's best-loved comedy shows, she is renowned for her frank humour, improv prowess and fearless wit.

But Kate is not defined solely by her career. She is a passionate home cook, wife to Peter Lewis and mother to four children.

In 2019 she did the unthinkable; she quit her top-rating national radio show Hughesy & Kate to move her family to Italy, where they lived for two years in Bologna; the second year in a global pandemic.

Since her return to Australia, Kate has continued to forge new challenges. She has written a best-selling memoir; Ciao Bella: Six take Italy, hosted two seasons of the popular Channel 9 show My Mum Your Dad, appeared weekly on The Project and made her mark with her long-form interviewing skills in a summer capsule of Mamamia's foundational No Filter series.

Kate Langbroek is a gifted and inspiring personality. Her honesty and open-hearted ability to delve into even the darkest of human experiences with grace and humour make her an unforgettable and uplifting guest speaker. In a world that yearns for authenticity, Kate has it in spades.
