Therese Tarlinton Founder, CEO, ambassador, author and speaker. Creating a global multi-million-dollar company in her twenties, Therese Tarlinton was an entrepreneur before really knowing what it meant. After seeing a baby product brand overseas, she knew Australians would love, she convinced the U.S. based owner to let her import it. That move sparked a company that would change the baby industry in Australia and form connections and partnership around the world. After negotiating the sale of that business, Therese moved into ecommerce working for the ASX listed Grays Ecommerce Group. She introduced the concept of social commerce creating a new revenue channel and customer base for the company, before running their fine jewellery business auctioning over $35m worth of gems and diamonds. After successfully pitching an idea to investors, Therese has left corporate and is building her new company and releasing her first book later this year.
