HOW IT ALL BEGAN – DALE ROBERTS, KOJO GROUP MANAGING DIRECTOR



Dale’s career began at the age of 17 in 1991 at a post house in Adelaide, South Australia.

After a few years as a junior editor, an opportunity came his way to join KOJO as an equity partner and start their post-production business.

Dale remembers getting ready for his first day as a business owner at the ripe old age of 22 when his parents gave him a shiny black leather briefcase, just like a lawyer would use.

He’s not sure it matched his young editor/surfer look that he sported at the time but he always appreciated their unwavering support as he took the leap into the unknown.

Now 25 years later as Group Managing Director at KOJO he no longer spends his days in the edit suite but he still gets a real sense of purpose as he works with the brilliantly talented team that KOJO has across Australia and loves the work they do for clients globally.

Dale is driven by the power of storytelling and the impact it can have when it captivates an audience. He loves what he does and given that he has spent over half his life riding the KOJO train, he can’t imagine being anywhere else other than at KOJO, asking his team the “What If?” question, challenging what is possible and what’s not and leaping into the next opportunity.
