Having emigrated solo as a curious 19yo from the UK in 2004 Gemma quickly established that Australia was the place to live life to its full potential. After many years working as a senior account director and project manager on commercial projects and world class iconic events with global brands for The Australian Open, Grand Prix and Melbourne Cup, Gemma was deeply drawn to the world of entrepreneurs and startups.
Diving into the neuroscience, leadership and operational aspects of companies, people and how they work to thrive, Gemma is able to support startup founders with her interpersonal and killer project management skills, that have been honed over 10 years of delivering projects at an accelerated rate herself.
Passionate about personal development and lifelong learning, working with early stage companies and projects that are focused on being part of something bigger, nimble and creative has been deeply rewarding.
Gemma is currently taking a break from being the ‘go-to’ for the Brisbane cohort teams as she embarks on another little project of her own… her first baby!
