Hi, I’m Fleur Madden, your new Business Mentor.
An award-winning businesswoman, experienced CEO and Founder, recognised industry expert and women in business speaker with two decades of experience running my own businesses. I started my first company, a PR agency, The Red Republic at 23 and I sold it 14 years later to a multinational. In that time of owning Red, I scaled the business from just me to a team of 50 with offices in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sydney and Los Angeles.
Along my journey, I have built and acquired other businesses, including the online beauty e-commerce brand Lulu and Lipstick that I sold in 2016, just after landing my makeup brushes in the Oscars gift bags. I have sat on an international board and since selling The Red Republic in 2018, I have been advising other CEOs on growth strategies. It was during this time that Freelancing Gems as a concept started to come to life.
Over the last five years, I have been coaching CEOs and founders in a 1:1 format with businesses at every stage – from start-ups to scaling, to successful exits.
I have spent my whole career leading teams of women, being passionate about the advancement of women at work and creating opportunities for women to grow and evolve.
You might have seen me pop up over the years in articles in The Collective, Marie Claire, Latte, Today Extra, Studio Ten and The Urban List. I have spoken at conferences around the world, including at home here in Australia as well as in Hong Kong, LA, NYC, Atlanta and South Africa.
I am also a mum to Josiah and Theodore and wife to Jimmy, I lived in NYC in my early 30’s, love Pina Coladas and have a Camilla fetish.
My favourite saying driving me at Freelancing Gems is “Don’t Play Small.”
So let’s not play small, join me in this mastermind to take your business to new heights.
