In Conversation: Leigh Sales

The anchor of ABC’s 7.30, co-host of the insanely popular Chat 10 Looks 3 with friend Annabel Crabb and dual Walkley Award winner, Leigh Sales has an enviable life.
But one string of bad news stories – and a terrifying brush with her own mortality – sent her looking for answers about how vulnerable each of us becomes during a life-changing event. The resulting book – Any Ordinary Day – has topped the Australian best seller list and was easily the most spotted book at the beach this summer.

Join Future Women for an open conversation with Leigh Sales and Future Women’s founding director Helen McCabe as they delve into the stories behind how ordinary people endure the unthinkable.
