Dress: Business Attire

This year, the SkillsDMC 2014 Conference Gala Dinner will feature Bryan Dawe as our after dinner speaker.        

Bryan Dawe

 Bryan is one of Australia’s finest political satirists. He has enjoyed a long, successful career writing and performing on national radio, television, stage and film. Bryan received the Australian Centenary Medal in the 2001 Queen's New Year’s Honour List for ‘Services to the acting profession’. 

Bryan was a cast member and writer of the critically acclaimed and highly successful spoof of the Sydney Olympics, the ABC TV series ‘The Games’. He was also a writer on the first two series of ‘Fast Forward’ on Channel 7. His film credits include the Australian hit comedy ‘The Castle’, ‘The Honorable Wally Norman’ and Paul Cox’s ‘Lust and Revenge’.

On stage and national ABC radio for over 20 years, Bryan has been writing and performing two much loved satirical characters: ‘Sir Murray Rivers QC’ and ‘Roly Parks’ with his ‘Letter from Kalangadoo’. Bryan received many awards for both characters, including a New York Radio award.

Another facet of Bryan’s creative talents is his skill for photography, his luminous, avant-garde photography first exhibited in Melbourne in 2005, followed by further critically acclaimed exhibitions in Sydney and Canberra in 2006. His most recent exhibition ‘Interval’ was shown at Monash Gallery of Art.

Bryan is also a committed social activist and until recently chaired and was co-founder of Common Fate, promoting the work of senior Indigenous Elder, Pat Dodson and other leaders.

An inveterate traveller Bryan has written many travel articles and has conducted tours to Eastern Europe, Syria and Jordan which he has an ongoing love of, and commitment to.

Bryan’s sharp wit and erudite observations, together with his flexibility, unique performances and talks, make him an excellent addition to any corporate event seeking an intelligent Keynote speaker. His talents lend themselves to conference speaker, after dinner entertainer, Master of Ceremonies, facilitator, or hypothetical writer and moderator.
