Therese is a passionate speaker, best-selling author, business and incubator advisor, and a marketing leader in the partnerships and collaboration space. With a career spanning over twenty years, Therese has started and grown her own businesses and led marketing teams for billion-dollar companies.

With an intense interest in manufacturing, Therese worked for giants like Minolta and Phillips before starting her own company in her twenties. She gained the licenses to produce baby products for Jeep, Sesame Street, and United Colors of Benetton which took her from her spare bedroom to contracts with three factories and offices in five countries. She harnessed the power of partnerships to reach this scale.​

After selling that company, Therese started working with big brands creating marketing plans that included partnerships and collaborations. From eCommerce to property, she has negotiated and delivered deals for many brands that have seen them create cobranded products, events, content and appear in magazines to TV shows like The Block and Selling Houses Australia.​

After publishing her first book SWAP! Marketing without Money and becoming an Amazon Best Selling author and reaching Booktopia’s Top 10, Therese has appeared on podcasts around the world and has articles published in Kochie’s Business Builders and Smart Company. Her energy is highest when she is on stage, and she was the keynote speaker for Small Business Month alongside Google.​
