Back Your Ideas!

Rachel Griffiths is a household name as an actor and in her diverse career she has appeared in over twenty-six films, including Muriel's Wedding, Ned Kelly and My Best Friend's Wedding and starred in television shows such as Total Control, Six Feet Under and House Husbands.


After giving away her ideas for decades, she’s recently fought to get her content on screen. In Wednesday’s #RunningFreeSkills, Rachel talks about why backing your own idea is essential, despite the odds... and how her dream of saving Ben Affleck turned into a pitch.

It goes live on Wednesday 13th May at 10am.
