Amplify your message.  Get noticed.  Stand out from the crowd. These are messages business coaches, consultants and marketing gurus will tell you every day.  If you play small and don’t get noticed, you’ll eventually get sick of the struggle.  I bet you didn’t go into business for that.  So in keeping with our series to invigorate your cut-through, this week we’ll discuss public speaking. “Public Speaking – Aaaaaaahhhhh!”  I hear you scream.  I know, I know… it’s your worst nightmare, right?  We...

Katrina verso conceived the idea for Cammino after a long career in media in Melbourne’s CBD. She was one of the many women who collected ballet flats under their desk for some relief from the day in heels. A common challenge she encountered was that we all searched for a shoe that was as comfortable as it was stylish but also stood the test of time. And those flats were hard to find! So this, coupled with a love of the quality workmanship of shoes made in Italy inspired her to create this label...

Being a corporate stress head was all I ever knew for 20 years. It was what was the norm, almost as though you had to be that way to be seen as a high performer. It came at such a price though. I was constantly sick with colds, migraines, PCOS, and even whooping cough! No-one ever mentioned that it might be because I was stressed, eating rubbish, drinking like a pirate and the most exercise I go was signing the membership form at various gyms. (who hasn’t signed up to a gym and then never actual...

Active Truth was created by co-founders Nadia Tucker and Stevie Angel after a number of negative shopping experiences trying to buy beautifully printed tights that would perform as promised through a workout. We started the business in 2016 with an initial investment of around $10K each. In our second year of business, our turnover was $2million. We recently won a Queensland Telstra Business Award in the 'Emerging & Energised' category. We saw a gap in the market for a brand that not only servic...

Hi, my name is Meaghan and I'd love to tell my journey so far.  Since I was a child, all I wanted to be was a chef. I also had a fascination with all things African. I used to watch my mum cook, and I swear she did magic-that woman can cook. I did home economics in school, but alas I couldn't cook-but my presentation was superb. I then went and did my apprenticeship and became a chef. I was the happiest and living the dream-until 6 years ago when I got carpel tunnel in both hands-I was devasted,...

I am the owner of Caroline's Angels Baby Sleep Specialists. I was a Midwife when I had my first baby in 1997. He was a very difficult sleeper and over the first few years of his life, we sought outside help to support my husband and I with him. We were sleep deprived, exhausted and frustrated. While we were grateful for any support we could get, we found the strategies that were offered to us, just made our son worse and we continued in this very difficult cycle until he was around 2.   I found ...

You know the age old saying about what goes on behind closed doors? Well that sums up my family the one I grew up in! All polished on the outside, smiley shiny happy normal functional people - but with a deep dark secret, one that no one knew of that was so tightly kept. My name is Adele and this is my story, and what I aim to achieve out of sharing it with people is for them to know that perfect doesn’t work. Perfect isn’t possible. Perfect is exhausting. ** This is by no means a political piec...

 There is no perfect recipe for the perfect coffee date.  Sorry.  But, if you’re reading this, you’re probably in a better position than many others because, well… you’re female! Yep, we chicks rule when it comes to coffee dates since we get three simple concepts – the value of relationships, how to form them and how to maintain them.  And even though we should never forget a coffee date, in the current sense, is most definitely a business meeting, we equally shouldn’t forget the points above...
