Creative Women's Circle
In 2009, in an effort to strengthen ties within the local creative community in Melbourne, I began coordinating Creative Women's Circle (CWC): a dynamic community for women working in creative industries, featuring a regular program of popular events around Australia, a blog rich with informative and inspiring content, and a database profiling a broad network of Australian creative women. In 2015, I incorporated CWC and currently act as its president.
The New Normal Podcast
In 2013 I started The New Normal Podcast with Emma Clark. We interview guests and muse over juggling creative small business ownership with that other full-time job, parenting.
Creative Minds Publishing
In 2014 I launched Creative Minds Publishing under which I sporadically produce publications and resources targeted at creatives and small business owners.
Talks & workshops
And over the years I have given talks, spoken on panels and hosted workshops for and with a bunch of great people, including: RMIT University, Billy Blue College of Design, Shillington College, Compass Women in Leadership, Craft Victoria, the Victorian Small Business Festival, the Artful Business Conference, and Creative Mornings on various topics including: graphic design; social media for small businesses; cultivating networks in creative industries; and women in the design industry.
