Roy Monaghan

Industry Development Officer
ido@firstnationsmedia.org.au

Roy was born and raised in Brisbane with ties to the Lama Lama people of North Queensland and the Bundjalung people of Northern New South Wales. He has worked in roles such as a regional coordinator working with Indigenous organisations to improve service delivery, as a lecturer in governance, and as the CEO of a medical service and until recently was working on his Phd looking at improving governance (just deferring for a little while then getting back to part time study). He has lived in every State and Territory (apart from Tasmania).

Roy strongly believes that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations have a special responsibility and relationship with their communities and that a strong broadcasting sector has the potential to deliver so much to people in every corner of Australia.
