Ginette McDonald

From Tawa to Hawera 
(And everything in between)

Ginette's comedic, performance and media career has spanned over 40 years, working in England, Scotland, Australia, Fiji, Singapore, Hong Kong and all over her beloved homeland  New Zealand. She devised her alter ego, certifiable living treasure Lyn of Tawa in 1968. Ginette has also been an actress, writer, TV Producer, debater, broadcaster, facilitator, MC and Wellington City Council candidate. 

Ginette has won numerous awards for acting, producing and public speaking – and in 2007 she was awarded the ONZM for services to Entertainment.

For nearly five years, Ginette was the presenter of the TV3 gardening show Ground Force, despite not being a gardener herself and having the opposite of green thumbs.

Additionally, Ginette cannot type, ride a horse, dance, play sports or sing in tune. All this adds up to a library of entertaining stories she’ll be sharing in an intimate tell-all evening, complete with pithy social commentary.

As Ginette exists purely as a reverse role model to make her audience feel much better about themselves – her show is one not to be missed!

Ginette appears by arrangement with Celebrity Speakers (NZ)
