About Jane

Hello and welcome.

I’m a Sydney-based journalist, performer and pilates enthusiast.

I’m delighted to announce that my 2022 theatre show Lost in Shanghai – is touring regional Australia in early 2024. I’ll have more details shortly.

My latest book  Rebel Talk is on the art of conversation and finding your voice.

Long ago, I was someone else. In 2010 I created and hosted the ABC TV show One Plus One, conducting 500 in-depth conversations in nine years.

Before that I had a fabulous career as a television presenter and three-time international correspondent.

So you are welcome here. Sit back, enjoy browsing and stay in touch by signing up to my newsletter.

Jane Hutcheon The Great Interviews

Kind words

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

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

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


I work with individuals, institutions and not-for-profits as a keynote speaker, consultant, presenter and facilitator.

In 2023 I’m looking forward to touring my theatre show Lost in Shanghai and working on a new book for later this year.

There’s a selection of my work from ABC TV’s One Plus One from 2010-2019.

I conducted more than 500 in-depth interviews in nine years with celebrities and everyday heroes including Eddie Izzard, Barry Humphries and Sir David Suchet.
