Founder and Director
Award winning business leader
Gemma is one of Australia’s most sought-after speakers on the topics of gender equity and women’s leadership development. She specialises in helping women to move past limiting beliefs and negative self-talk and embrace discomfort, risk and exposure. She is also expert in helping organisations to understand and break through gender equity barriers to create cultures in which both men and women can thrive.
Every single woman who hears Gemma speak reports greater levels of confidence, courage and resilience as a result. In a recent women’s leadership program, 60% of participants gained a promotion or a stretch opportunity within the nine months of the program. All participants attributed this step up in their career as a result of working with Gemma.
Gemma has a PhD in performance psychology and deep insight into what motivates us to move past doubt and fear and create lives and careers we are proud of. She has encouraged thousands of women to overcome fears of public speaking and take the stage with confidence, excellence and ease. Gemma is a trained classical singer, and has sung in cathedrals and stadiums all around the world. She recently sang live on stage with the Rolling Stones on their Australian tour, and is suffering a lingering case of goosebumps as a result.
What do I love most about working at Inkling?
Oh, let me count the ways! I feel blessed to be doing what I love – inspiring women to lead – with a team I adore in service of a better world.
When I imagine a world that is genuinely co-led by women, I get shivers down my spine. There will be less conflict, more collaboration and much better decision-making.
The fact that Inkling Women is making a clear dent in the representation of women at leadership level is what drives me every day.
