At her core, Kellie Dyer is a helper, continually looking for ways to give back and support business owners to succeed. Kellie is a highly experienced mentor, business advisor, trainer and certified innovation facilitator who has worked across both corporate and startup environments, with a focus on skills and capability development her goal is to help businesses build scalable, sustainable businesses and think beyond the balance sheet.
Not surprising then, that she has decided to join the Rare Birds Ambassadors and support our mission.
Why did you decide to become an Ambassador for Inspiring Rare Birds?
I have been involved with Rare Birds as a Mentor and Workshop presenter for a few years. I would love to help raise the profile of Rare Birds and increase the footprint of the network.
What inspired you to be an entrepreneur or business leader?
I have worked in the area of Entrepreneurship and Innovation for a very long time. My inspiration came from working with many fantastic innovators and entrepreneurs I have worked with over the years. There are many people with great ideas however they lack business knowledge and experience. By supporting these people to help them with their business issues they can free their time up to drive their ideas through to launch. I also have an extensive network and connections. Being able to help people navigate to the people, support and programs they need is also very rewarding.
