Event Details

The ever-popular ZestFest Oration is back for 2019, and we’re delighted that this year it will be headlined by Ita 

Buttrose AC, OBE

Ita Buttrose AC, OBE will be ZestFest’s guest speaker at the annual Oration, discussing ‘Ageing with attitude, growing older with zest, and occasionally disgracefully’.

The Oration is presented by COTA SA, Enabling Confidence at Home (ECH) and nbn.

A legendary media trailblazer, businesswoman, best-selling author, committed community and welfare contributor and former Australian of the Year – Ita said value and achievements are not limited by age.

“I am pleased to be speaking at this year’s ZestFest Oration to challenge ageist views and help older people believe in themselves and accomplish more. Australians often overlook older members of the community, based only on preconceived ideas about their age. It is an area I’ve devoted time to addressing and trying to correct.”

The Oration will kickstart this two-week festival which will feature more than 200 events across metropolitan and regional South Australia. The official ZestFest program of events will be launched on Thursday 29 August when the program is released.
