The Resume Creative
Stacey Murray (MAHRI, B.Bus) is the woman behind The Resume Creative, and has been supporting job seekers, career builders, small business owners, bloggers and freelancers to illustrate their greatness for past 8 years. After finishing her Bachelor’s in HR in 2011, and holding a career behind the recruitment desk of some of the world’s largest firms, Stacey had a son (now 3) and changed gears, using her knowledge and passion to help those sitting on the other side of the interview table become more confident and comfortable. Blending modern business and self-marketing techniques and tools with a talent for unearthing (and communicating) the spark of greatness in every person, Stacey believes every individual has something unique and valuable to offer their workplaces, their business clients and customers, and their community.
In her spare time, you can usually find Stacey vision-boarding her way to a renovated Airstream (coffee in hand), or tending the veggie (ok, mostly strawberry) patch with her 3 year old son. Stacey regularly presents a range of workshops to the community, and is currently working on workshop series tailored to small business and events for return to work mothers. If you’d like to keep up to date on upcoming workshops, helpful hints and articles on marketing yourself for the opportunities calling you, then visit @The Resume Creative on Facebook or Instagram, or connect with her on LinkedIn (staceymmurray).

High-Profit Media is a small but powerful, heart centred business brought together by Western Australian award winning Entrepreneur Nicole Ashby. Like most small business owners Nicole was the same in sharing all the common challenges a business faces with her first venture: FIFO Families … which later went on to become a globally recognised and trusted brand.
Built from the ground up on a shoestring budget Nicole Ashby learned by intelligently marketing her business to media companies in print, radio and television, she could have her message and strong value proposition marketed out for her – for free by them … through large, targeted networks or people perfectly aligned to her business who would in turn become customers and create a platform for FIFO Families to grow upon.
Nicole is a dual 40Under40 winner, she also received the St Vincent award and was a finalist in the Telstra Business of The Year award in 2015.
