Gemma Acton, the guest speaker at the June meeting of the Grater Narellan business chamber, has worked across finance and broadcast media for more than two decades.

Ms Acton has covered market moving stories and met the people behind the headlines across the world.

Currently the Network Finance Editor at 7 News – the most-watched news service in Australia – Ms Acton presents the latest financial and business news to audiences across the country.

She is also a regular guest host across several of the network’s broadcast news programs.

Prior to this, she hosted broadcast programs at CNBC International in London and also worked as an on-air correspondent pursuing stories across Europe for the global network.

A regular guest on radio shows and podcasts, Ms Acton  frequently joins private and corporate functions and charity events as an MC, panellist or keynote speaker.

Returning to Australia in late 2017 was a lovely homecoming after she spent 18 years abroad living, working and studying in cities including London, New York, Dubai, Milan and Paris.

In addition to broadcasting, during this time she worked in investment banking and wealth management at Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and PIMCO.

Ms Acton also gained an MBA/MA from the Lauder Institute and the Wharton School, a BA from University College London and the highly prestigious chartered financial analyst qualification.

Gemma’s day job involves interviewing chief executives, company founders, fund managers and industry experts – as well as everyday Australians – to understand how changes in our economy
and society affect all of us.

In her spare time, she loves to swim, ski, read classic literature, spend time with her family and do battle with cryptic crosswords.

She will be speaking at the chamber general meeting on Wednesday, June 12, at Rydges Campbelltown, 6pm for 6.30pm start.
