David Koch: To Live is to Give Back


“Success is what you can do for other people. Simple as that.”

David Koch is very clear about what he stands for. He believes being born in Australia is like winning the “embryo lottery” – and how important it is to use our time, talents and money to give back to society. Kochie recognises that life can be challenging, but it can also be simple. He reminds us of the importance of family, being grateful, being kind and not taking ourselves too seriously. He has great stories and insights on the power of looking beyond ourselves to see how we can make a difference to those around us.

David Koch, nicknamed ‘Kochie’, is arguably the best known person on Australian TV. He is a journalist, business owner and financial commentator. He is the co-host of Australia’s number one breakfast TV show Sunrise with millions of people waking up with him every morning. He was named the Father of the Year in 2007, is the chairman of Port Adelaide Football Club, the founder of the Koch Centre for Youth – and the Reader’s Digest named him one of the 50 most trusted Australian’s. David is most proud of his marriage to Libby and his four beautiful children.
