I’m a Sydney-based interviewer, writer and facilitator experienced in TV presentation, story-telling and bringing people together.

I created the ABC TV show One Plus One in 2010, conducting 500 in-depth conversations in nine years. Now I teach the art of conversation at home, at work and with your customers.

I’m on the advisory board of the not-for-profit movement Stay Kind. My new book on conversation is due out this year.

Jane Hutcheon The Great Interviews

Kind words

She is as good as Michael Parkinson at his best. The Green Guide, The Age, March 2014

Hutcheon’s urbane, understated control is masterly. Sydney Morning Herald May 2014

Jane Hutcheon deserves credit as a skilful interviewer. She is able to gently prod her subject in a certain direction, while never inserting herself too obtrusively. Sydney Morning Herald January 2020

Warm, curious and relaxed, Jane Hutcheon proves an ideal facilitator. Limelight magazine, January 2020

I think the interview with you is the best I have ever done – and it’s because of your questions and sensitivity. Truly. Amy Tan, author The Joy Luck Club

There’s a gentle artistry to Hutcheon’s interview invisibility, far more evident in person than through the screen…the way her carefully unjudging eyes rarely leave your face… The Saturday Paper, February 2017
