Essential Podcasts From Online Retailers to Aged Care Entrepreneurs

From an online retail entrepreneur to the founders of Australia’s first talent agency for the mature-aged, we think you’ll agree our latest Game Changers are inspiring in every sense of the word.

They saw a gap in the market and threw caution to the wind, turning convention on its head as they forged bold new paths.

Did they make mistakes along the way? You bet they did, but they picked themselves up, learned from their mistakes and kept on going.

To celebrate the fourth instalment of our popular video series showcasing these motivating moguls, we thrilled to now release the full-length podcast interviews with host Sarah Harris, of Studio 10 fame.

Better Caring co-CEO Peter Scutt didn’t need to look far for inspiration when it came to developing his revolutionary new online marketplace for home care.

He tells Game Changers host Sarah Harris that his own parents were the catalyst for the platform enabling people who are ageing, or those with a disability, to customise their own care and support.

Click below to find out how their plight motivated Peter to look for an alternative to the established system, and how that’s also now creating a new way for health care professionals to run their own businesses.

Andrea Walsh, CIO iSentia

Andrea Walsh didn’t see herself as a role model for women when she first started her career in the tech world.

But as she looks around the industry today from her position as Chief Information Officer for leading media monitoring company iSentia, she wonders where they all are.

In this revealing podcast, she tells Sarah Harris why there is still such a glaring imbalance, and what needs to be done to fix it.  

Carl Jackson, CEO Oz Sale

Carl Jackson admits it took a little while for Australian brands to catch-on to the proven European concept of a members-only retail platform.

But once they did, he and his brother Jamie, knew they had a hit with Oz Sale,

Australia’s first members-only online shopping club.

In this fascinating chat with Sarah, the retail maverick plots Oz Sale’s humble beginnings from Sydney’s northern beaches, to the lofty heights of today that sees the platform moving 30,000 products each day to its 15 million devotees in Australia alone.

Georgia Branch and Brigitte Warne, founders Silverfox MGMT Group

Former PR and integrated marketing expert Georgia Branch and model Brigitte Warne struck gold with Australia’s first talent agency for the 30-plus before they’d even opened the doors.

Prior to officially launching Silverfox MGMT Group in 2016 they received 400 applicants in Sydney and a similar number in Melbourne during an early recruitment drive.
