Keynote Speaking

Ros is an engaging and motivating keynote speaker. She entertains audiences with her real-life experiences, inspiring them to be better versions of themselves as she reveals the tools to move forward in life through the power of giving.

Audiences will learn about empathy as the true heart of philanthropy and how to turn pain and grief into personal growth through compassion.

There will be laughs and tears as Ros shares her true-life stories of life in the bush as a foster child, a stint across the ditch in New Zealand, examples of paying it forward, and her journey to establishing and supporting several charities, all while raising a family and copping many life-altering highs and lows along the way.

Her warmth and down-to-earth approach is appreciated by audiences across Australia.
