Denton: Keynote Speaker @ #CRAconf

Staff Writer

He is one of Australia’s most innovative and prolific creators of entertainment, knows just a little about being a top rating Breakfast talent and he is widely recognized as one of Australian television’s indisputable creative minds.

Andrew Denton is keynote speaker at this year’s National Radio Conference – #CRAconf – in Melbourne on Friday.  

Denton’s session is titled Giving Head Jobs to Cobras.


Officially “in retirement” since the sale of his production company, Andrew Denton said: "Cumes, sweeps, relatability, Klout – I will be talking about absolutely none of these things. I will be talking about creative joy and how to find it. And I'll chuck in a few radio horror stories just to keep you interested."

His keynote outline says he will be drawing on his extensive experience working around people who actually knew what they were doing.   He will also give his top 1072 tips for making it all the way to the middle in the media without losing any of your inner arsehole.  The session comes with the warning: This talk contains name-drops and traces of Randling.

Commercial Radio Australia chief executive officer, Joan Warner, said: “Andrew has produced outstanding award winning entertainment and worked with and nurtured incredible Australian talent and we’re looking forward to his keynote presentation.”  

The National Radio Conference will be held in Melbourne at the Grand Hyatt on 17 October, the day before the 26th annual Australian Commercial Radio Awards on the 18th October at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
