I’m a serial entrepreneur. I started 16 businesses before founding Caradvice.com.au, which I recently sold for $35M to Nine Entertainment. I initially started CarAdvice as a blog and in ten years grew it into a nationwide car advice, review and news site, employing 40 people and turning over $15M a year. We’ve built CarAdvice through creating genius content that people want to watch and share, owning SEO and selling targeted advertising on the site. I’m interested in providing advice to businesses and startups, but be warned – I’m very honest, and won’t hold back from telling you my honest opinion.

We sell a packet of Moxie product every thirty seconds. Curious yet? With the crazy idea to put tampons in recyclable tins so that they would stop rolling around in my handbag, my business partner and I took on a stagnant, mature FMCG category dominated by large multi-nationals, and launched a true makret disruptor. For the last (almost!) 14 years, I’ve seen our Moxie brand of women’s personal care through every step of its life cycle, from conceptualisation right through to commercialisation and have sunk my teeth into anything from packaging and product design, to ad campaign development to customer relationship management with some of the world’s biggest retailers. I understand every element of what it takes to not only bring a brand to life, but to insulate it from tough competition and secure it for future business growth and success. Moxie products have sold millions upon millions of products in various markets around the world; I’ve made a heap of bad decisions and mistakes, but just as many good ones, too. I’ve done it for myself and I can help you do it, too (the good stuff, that is!). Contact me if you’re keen to learn more about: - How to get started (How do you know if it’s a good idea or not? Where do you get help?) - What it takes to build a brand from scratch - How to launch your product into major retail or online - Brand strategy - Marketing strategy (I’m a Marketer by trade!) - Entrepreneurship - New product development - Exporting, operations and logistics - Corporate Social Responsibility - Leadership - Life/work balance Some other cool stuff I’ve done/do that might be of help... - Telstra Young Business Woman of the Year 2014, VIC - Westpac/AFR ‘100 Women of Influence’ 2014 - Entrepreneur’s Organisation Board member 2015 – 2018 (inclusive) - Co-founder and champion of the ‘Pads for Pads’ initiative - RMIT Student Mentor - Regular public speaker

Forbes 30 under 30, Telstra Young Business Women's Award 2017 In 2012, I launched OneShift on the back of a free blog, some posters, duck tap and an ipad. After the first month of it being live, it had 300 university students and several clubs using it. Within 6 months OneShift had over 10k users. OneShift received an investment of $5 million for 27.5% equity from Programmed (ASX: PRG) and who subsequently purchased it in 2016. More recently, I've launched Skilld.com, a dynamic online marketplace that instantly connects local talent to local businesses and also tamme.io an analytics and advertising platform for marketplaces. I'm heavily involved in the start-up and business community in Australia. I mentor for several schools, co-working spaces etc. and lead several women in bus/tech initiatives, including: 'Women In Tech Australia' and ‘LMBDW', which has over 50,000 members. I also work with City and State Government to increase awareness of start-ups, and to connect corporate companies for mentoring and investing initiatives with the wider aim to help Australian start-ups to think and grow globally. This is achieved through partnerships with Boston Consulting Group, Council of Small Business Australia (COSBOA) and I was recently named the youngest Sydney Chair for the Young Presidents Org (YPO).
I started Over the Moo about 2 years ago, when I saw a gap in the market for a reasonably priced and delicious vegan ice cream. Being lactose intolerant myself, I was sick of not having an ice cream option - so I decided to develop one myself. At first, I sold the ice creams door-to-door to independent IGAs, even allowing it to be stocked on consignment. Before long, word got around and it started flying off the shelves. We now have nine flavours and sell to 350 independent grocers and 550 Woolworths stores across Australia. I'm interested in chatting to other entrepreneurs and providing advice about how to sell a category, not just a product; cold chain logistics; inventory management; and product development.

I love marketing. I’ve found my passion; and that is, developing and launching global brands. Having worked in a large multinational for much of my career, I felt it was time to take all that I had learned over the years in my various roles (from field sales, to sales management, to marketing and then senior regional brand management) and apply it to something I could create from scratch and bring to life – something I was truly passionate about. I was excited by the freedom to be able to innovate, create and ultimately control the outcome of my work. That’s how ‘Moxie’ came to be. Despite my previous experience, going out and starting fresh was incredibly challenging, but I’ve learned so much along the way and have continued to develop my skills, particularly in FMCG. I’m really proud of what we’ve created and proud to say that Moxie has become a global brand, having launched in the UAE, throughout Europe, and more recently in China and the US. Moxie is a stylish and feminine offering in what has previously been deemed an embarrassing and anything but stylish category. Our range includes tampons, pads and liners complete in discreet and unique purse-worthy tin packs that are reusable and 100% recyclable.
