As a public speaker, Nicole is engaging, articulate and charming, making her the perfect guest for any number of events.

Known as one of Australia’s most accomplished backstroke swimmers, Nicole Livingstone has won 10 consecutive races in the National 100m during her 11 year stint on the Australian swimming team. Upon retiring from the sport in 1996, she turned her love of athletics into an illustrious television career. Hosting programs such as Wide World of Sports and Sports Saturday for Australia’s Channel 9, Nicole has had the privilege of commentating on a variety of events, including Channel 9’s coverage of the Commonwealth Games.

After nearly 10 years of working with Channel 9, Nicole expanded her career in 2006, hosting the popular Any Given Sunday with her co-anchor Mick Molloy. This earned her a spot with Ten News, in which she currently works presenting the sports segments for the channel. Not one to leave her love of swimming behind, Nicole also currently hosts the show Swimming, Surf Life Saving, and makes regular guest appearances on the programs The Project and The Circle. In support of Australian Sports, Nicole is also a member of VicHealth and the State Sports Centre Trust.

Nicole Livingstone’s extensive training and knowledge in the world of sports, her unique ability to flourish in the very different careers of swimming and television, and the nearly two decades she has spent in front of the camera have given her a strong foundation for not only being able to deliver inspiring, informational speeches, but also the eloquence to do so.
