Venue: Ballroom, Novotel Wollongong Northbeach
Speaker: Damien Leith

Join us on Tuesday, 8 December at the Novotel Wollongong Northbeach for a very well-earned end of year celebration where we have our newest 'Wollongong Local' and much loved WAVE FM breakfast co-presenter, Damien Leith lined up to entertain us.

Damien Leith is a multi-talented artist and radio host that has made his mark in Australia as a singer, songwriter, producer, author, playwright and tv/radio host personality. He is an avid story teller and writes adult and children’s literature. 

The talented family man first captured the attention and affection of Australians when he contested the 2006 edition of Australian Idol – a series he went on to win. Since then his career has skyrocketed, but he has remained charming, grounded and modest – securing him a place as a popular and well-loved Australian and now international personality.

Damien has enjoyed platinum-selling albums and been nominated for multiple awards including arias, Golden Guitar, MTV Australia video music awards and Helpmann awards. His aria wins include number 1 chart awards for the albums WHERE WE LAND and the winner’s journey, highest selling album (THE WINNER’S JOURNEY), and highest selling single and number 1 chart award for the track, NIGHT OF MY LIFE. His music has been chosen to appear in commercials and television shows, with his song, beautiful, accompanying a global ESTEE LAUDER campaign and not just for the weekend, being the theme song for the television series, saving kids – a show that Damien also hosted.
