There are so many women in this country running businesses and working in fulfilling careers from the bush. Together with Women NSW, in the next Business Chicks Masterclass Online, we’re shining a spotlight on three women doing just that. They join us to talk about the myriad of business opportunities that exist in the regions. We’ll chat buying from regional, doing business with regional and how to make it work when your employees are in regional areas too.

The line-up:

  • Jo Palmer, Founder and Managing Director of Pointer Remote - Through Pointer Remote, Jo builds capacity in communities, businesses and individuals to leverage remote work. They do this by supporting organisations from sole traders through to corporates and Government to embrace the world of ‘remote’. She is a passionate advocate for professionals based in the bush and loves working with organisations that understand access to the best talent is not governed by postcode.
  • Jillian Kilby, CEO and founder of the Infrastructure Collaborative and The Exchange – Jillian returned from Silicon Valley to Dubbo and purchased a 133-year-old post office, converting it to an innovation hub and co-working space called The Exchange. As a Civil Engineer, Jillian has served the infrastructure needs of NSW Local Governments west of the Blue Mountains since 2009 and works with clients in regional Australia and the USA. Jillian uses a Design Thinking approach learned at Stanford University to solve problems and shift infrastructure projects from Government planning shelves to be shovel ready.
  • Edwina Sharrock, CEO and founder of Birth Beat – Ed has over 14 years of experience as a midwife, neonatal intensive care nurse and emergency nurse and has delivered hundreds of babies. Birth Beat provides two services; child birthing classes as well as baby/child first aid classes. They deliver their services through both online and face-to-face classes – making childbirth education available even if you’re hundreds of kilometres from the nearest hospital.
