In 2019 she was named the NSW Premier’s Woman of the Year, accepted the Sydney Peace Prize alongside Tarana Burke for the Me Too movement, and won the national award for Excellence in Women’s Leadership through Women & Leadership Australia.

In 2018, Tracey was chosen as one of the Australian Financial Review’s 100 Women of Influence, winning the Social Enterprise and Not-For-Profit category.

We got Tracey Spicer to come and talk to our team offsite through pickstar. Tracey was awesome and the whole team got something from the experience. She talked honestly and vulnerably about her career and how she came from being a Bogan from Queensland to a national news anchor. Tracey was simply amazing, such great feedback for her!
Tracey was spectacular, highly knowledgeable, engaging, fun to listen to/learn from, flexible and very human. She was instrumental in delivering an event that delighted our guests. To date, we have received excellent feedback!
Camden Council, International Women’s Day 2021
We were pleased to have Tracey Spicer as a virtual guest speaker for our 2021 International Women’s Day celebration. Our team was glued to the screen for laughs, inspiration and most importantly encouraged to start the discussion of gender diversity. Tracey was extremely engaging and I would highly recommend her as a guest speaker.

Thank you for participating in the ‘Room for the Patient View’ event on Wednesday 23 June at the Great Hall, Parliament House. Your professionalism and uplifting spirit was a highlight of the night. I know the panellists and patient speakers were grateful to have your calming reassurance on stage and I wanted to thank you for handling the whole night with sensitivity and compassion. Thank you again for sharing your personal story with honesty. It was inspiring and empowering for all of us in the room.

Thank you so much for being part of our Vivity launch. You gave it the professionalism, credibility and warmth we were looking for! You were great support for our surgeon presenters.

Tracey was a brilliant addition to our campaign to save physio and allied health in nursing homes. She was the first and most enthusiastic celebrity to come on board which was amazing as she was our first choice as well. Her personal connection to the issue along with her incredibly articulate messaging was very effective to help our campaign get more widespread public awareness. A real strength was her ability to boil complex issues like funding to relatable simple issues like family. She is a master communicator! Her support helped us go from 250 senate petition signatures to 12000 in a few weeks!
