Kerry Stokes is a remarkable Australian. Not because he is one of this country’s wealthiest and most powerful people but because of what he overcame to get there. He was a young uneducated boy, essentially alone in the world, with nothing to him but his energy and his spirit. He stared down poverty, ignorance and the stigma of his illegitimate birth to achieve great wealth and fulfilment. He’s a backstreet battler who has become a power player.
His story fascinates all the more because he has spent most of his life guarding it. But now he’s told it, to Andrew Rule, one of Australia’s great storytellers and a Gold Walkley Award winner. The Boy From Nowhere is an inspiring and fascinating story. Join us for this exclusive breakfast with Kerry Stokes in- conversation with Andrew Rule.
