Oh, hi! Welcome to my page.
I'm Jeanette, and I'm into marketing, strategy, innovation, diversity and community building. I'm based in Melbourne - and occasionally San Francisco.
Don't let my youthful features fool you (thanks, Mum!) - I've spent many years innovating within corporate Australia until my curiosity about the future led me to co-found The Hacker Exchange, which connects the next generation of founders and innovators to Silicon Valley, Tel Aviv and beyond.
Now, blending the excitement of the startup world with the power of the business world is kind of my jam - speaking, teaching, creating events and working in this space every day.
