Robyn Moore's voice has been heard in almost every home in Australia over the past 40+ years however, no-one will know her name. Her voice is heard in our best known TV and radio commercials like "Spray 'n Wipe and she created all female voices in Australia’s longest running radio comedy "How Green Was My Cactus". This political satire has been on radio for 26 years (over 5,250 episodes) and writer Doug Edwards has won 5 awards for best comedy writer in OZ. Robyn has also enchanted children as the voice behind Australia’s most mischievous cartoon character "Blinky Bill" (seen in 70 countries!)
She is now inspiring conference audiences around Australia and beyond and is Australia’s most in-demand female speaker. Her past and current work load has been and continues to be phenomenal, covering almost all facets of the media and entertainment industries.
Born in Tasmania, Robyn spent her early years on sheep and cattle stations from Tasmania to outback Queensland. (Her dad was a stockman, drover, shearer and shearers’ chef). It was on these isolated properties that wireless became her "friend" and her creative imagination ran wild! She began her career as a primary school teacher in 1972 in Tasmania, moved into the sphere of Drama and Movement and toured Tasmanian schools with the Drama in Education Group.
She worked for both the ABC and the Department of Education as a Liaison Officer, scriptwriter, presenter and voice-over artist for national ABC Education Programs. For 5 years Robyn combined her work in Education with acting and singing (as a band vocalist, MC and performer in musical comedy.) She still works with young students and speaks around Australia to students and Educators from Early Childhood to Tertiary Education…and at the "Rising Generations" National Student Leadership Camps. Robyn also works with young people "at risk".
In 1976, Robyn and husband Hal moved to Sydney where she quickly established herself as one of Australia’s most versatile performers…doing Voice-Overs, Newsreading on 2KY, comedy sketches with Doug Mulray on Triple M for 3 years, radio sements on health with Dr James Wright for 20 years and has been the voice on St George Phone Banking for 19 years. On TV, Robyn has appeared as a regular advertorial presenter on ‘Til Ten’ and ‘The Bert Newton Show’ and as a character actor and corporate spokesperson for Channel 7.
Awarded the 1998 "National Communicator of the Year Award" for EXCELLENCE in oral communication, it’s not surprising that Robyn is one of Australia's most in-
demand speakers at National and International Conferences, Corporate Workshops, Product Launches, Special Events and speaks in many different states every week about "The Power of the Word"! Her unique relationship with words allows her to open up "life-altering" communication skills for her clients.
A third of Robyn's work is donated to Not For Profit Organisations. Robyn is a National Patron of Make-A-Wish Foundation, an Ambassador for the Australian Childhood Foundation, and is a "friend" of many other charities including Alzheimers Australia.
One of Robyn’s favourite assignments each year is being an Australia Day Ambassador. She considers it a wonderful privilege to share her passion for this great country and celebrate our freedom, our larrikin sense of humour…and our cultural uniqueness.
