DAA Ambassador - Robyn Moore...
You may not know Robyn Moore's name but her voice has been heard in most homes in Australia. For 40+ years, Robyn has been changing peoples' perception through "the power of the word" as an educator, a Voice-Over Artist and as a Speaker.
She has sold millions of dollars’ worth of products in TV and Radio ads, entertained millions of people as all female voices in Australia’s longest running radio show “How Green Was My Cactus”…and enchanted generations of children as the voice of the iconic animated TV character “Blinky Bill”. She is also one of Australia’s most in-demand speakers at National and International Conferences and Events.
Robyn has a unique relationship with words and weaves together humour, powerful stories and insightful distinctions in her “tailored” presentations, to create an experience you’ll never forget. People often describe her highly entertaining, inspiring and thought provoking presentations as “Life-Altering”...both professionally and personally.
Robyn is a National Patron of Make-A-Wish Australia, an Australia Day Ambassador for the Australia Day Council and the Australian Childhood Foundation and is delighted, as a breast cancer survivor, to have been invited to be an Ambassador for Dragons Abreast Australia.
My “TO DO” list NEVER mentioned cancer because it was not in our family, I had breast fed both my children and I had an upbeat attitude to life. Imagine my surprise when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2009. Thanks to my regular check-ups with Breast-Screen Tasmania, my lump was detected early and I only required a Lumpectomy and 38 radiation treatments. I am now 4 years clear and am passionate about early detection through breast examination and screening.
Given my cathartic journey, I was thrilled to be invited to speak at the 2015 “Dragons Abreast Australia” Conference Dinner. We all connected instantly on the night (I even discovered old friends in the audience) and I was immediately enrolled in everyone’s enthusiasm, energy and zest for life. There was instant simpatico…as we were all kindred spirits through our experience. That night we shared stories that made us laugh and cry and we celebrated loudly "the gift of life”...and we solemnly appreciated "the fragility of life!"
I left profoundly affected by the experience (with everyone in my heart)…and was deeply moved to be asked afterwards if I would consider being an Ambassador for DAA. No…I will not be paddling but I can serve this wonderful organisation and its members by spreading the word about DAA so that others can support (and be supported by) these outstanding people who are BEING “bigger than the circumstances”...............Robyn Moore
