Sheree is recognised as an expert in curating spaces, programs and environments for women to thrive. Sheree regularly speaks on the topic of what women need to succeed in entrepreneurship and women in co-working in Australia and globally. Sheree is a 2017 Telstra Business Women's Award Finalist, was awarded the 2016 Victorian Young Achiever's Leadership Award and was nominated as one of Australia's top young innovators in 2015.

Each week, What Matters Most interviews a revolutionary leader from the business and activism world about what is most important to them in their life and work. We are deeply inspired by these people and we hope our readers will be too!
When were you happiest in your life?

When I am feeling positively challenged, stimulated, surrounded by people I love and engaged in activities that align with my values and purpose. In particular I am at my absolutely happiest when I am mentoring, nurturing and inspiring women-led startups and small businesses to succeed. 


What's the one thing you wish you knew 20 years ago?

I always thought really successful people never felt or showed signs of fear or nerves. I still remember the moment I realised it's not that successful people don't feel fear but rather that they feel the fear and do it anyway! I wish I had known this a long time ago as I had so much self doubt in my late teens and early 20s. 


What matters the most to you in your work?

Creating a space, environment and programs that enable women to have the greatest chances of succeeding in business. My work, my passions and everything I stand for is to ensure women truly thrive. I am on a mission to make Australia the best place in the world for women to start, grow and lead successful businesses.
