Meet Magda Szubanski AO
Q. What are your top tips for those of us just learning to be brave when it comes to dealing with online trolls?
There is no quick, easy or one-size-fits-all answer to this question as everyone has a different experience, a different public profile and different levels of fear/stress tolerance. The smartest thing is to be as knowledgeable as possible. Inform yourself about the risks and protections available - eg. check out the website for the Commission for e-safety. Take it very slowly and proceed with caution. And if you feel overwhelmed - GET OFF SOCIAL MEDIA ASAP!! The world/cause/issue can get on without you.
Q. What’s one change that you made in the crisis of 2020 for the better?
Self care. I took the opportunity to slow down and look after myself and my health.
Q. We hear that you’re a big fan of Professor Brett Sutton, how does it feel to be on the same line-up as Bretty?
I am almost as excited as he is!!
Catch more from Magda at GIANT STEPS 2021 on Wednesday 12 May. If you haven't already got a ticket, you can grab one here.
