On Being Bold
Business Name: On Being Bold

On Being Bold is an online collective developed by women for women. It has been created to capture and share the personal lives and career journeys of prominent New Zealand business leaders, and sets out to highlight that the squiggly line connecting home life and career is anything but straight-forward.

The nine female founders – Dame Therese Walsh, Joan Withers, Cathy Quinn, Dame Paula Rebstock, Alison Gerry, Jolie Hodson, Silvana Schenone, Royal Reed, and Frances Valintine – cross multiple business disciplines and fields of expertise. All have governance experience, with many contributing to some of New Zealand’s most prominent organisations.

All nine women believe that there is much to be learned from those who have battled a variety of challenges on their way to the top.

On Being Bold is dedicated to women at all stages of their lives and careers – and aims to become a community where women will find inspiration, knowledge and a few life learnings.

Access to insights is via membership ($15/month or $99.95/year) – this allows you to access on-stage and in-depth video interviews from the 2018 Being Bold Conference where 800 New Zealand women came together to hear the wise words of experience, and the trials and tribulations that were faced on their journeys.

Members also receive regular updates from a wide range of business women – from lawyers to bankers, designers to entrepreneurs.
