Kerri Sackville is an author, columnist, social commentator and divorced mother of three who has never had it all – at least, she’s never had it all at once. In this talk, she will share some of the greatest lessons she has learned from her decade in the public eye: that nobody has the perfect life, that readers respond to authenticity, and that being honest about one’s own struggles is the key to building audience trust.

Kerri will discuss the joys and perils of being a columnist in the digital media, how to balance vulnerability with self-protection online, and how to build an authentic personal brand. Kerri has been writing about life and relationships for fifteen years, and will share her wisdom and insights with her trademark wit and humour (and the occasional embarrassing dating story).
