It was a full, excited, house on Friday 6th October to hear Kate McClymont speak to FOBL. Her talk was entitled The Bold, The Belligerent and the Bagmen.

Kate McClymont is an investigative journalist currently reporting for the Sydney Morning Herald. In the late 1980s, McClymont worked for two years as a junior reporter on Four Corners. In 2002, she won a Gold Walkley, an investigative journalism award, with Anne Davies for coverage of a rugby league salary cap scandal associated with the Canterbury Bulldogs. She presented the 2014 Andrew Olle Media Lecture. She is the co-author, with Linton Besser, of He who must be Obeid,an unauthorised biography of former NSW Minister Eddie Obeid.

A generous, witty and informative speaker. Kate is pictured here with FOBL Chair, Dr Mariella Totaro-Genevois.

We were delighted Kate also enjoyed her visit to Balmain “That was one of the most enjoyable talks I have done. The audience was well informed and so receptive!”
