Jodie is an entrepreneur and business owner who has 15+ years’ experience running her own digital technology company as well as being an active investor in a number of businesses including property, FMCG, consumer products and services.
Jodie describes herself as a generalist but with her qualifications in Japanese and international marketing, along with her time living abroad and working for NZTE, she has maintained a global perspective which has allowed her to work on the bigger issues and exercise innovation whilst getting stuck into the detail.
Recently Jodie has successfully implemented her own succession plan and handed over the reins to a CEO. Her focus is now working “on” the business as well as helping other business owners and leaders. She believes the way in which we work is fundamentally changing fast and many business owners need help to navigate their way forward. Jodie’s sweet spot is helping businesses stay relevant, close to their customers and innovate where it makes sense.
